Mint Santa Teresa / Studio Saxe

Contemporary Costa Rican coastal hotel combines modern design and traditional craftsmanship. Stepping down a steep hillside and overlooking the ocean, Mint Santa Teresa is a new hotel that blends a European design aesthetic with Costa Rican craftsmanship – created to ensure that guests can commune with nature, each other and local people. The Swedish owners fell in love with Santa Teresa as a surfing paradise, as well as its burgeoning yoga community. Inspired by Greek architecture, minimalism, and Scandinavian design, they commissioned Studio Saxe who have developed a reputation for their approach to architecture that harmonizes with tropical landscapes.
