Updated: 20 November 2017
Long regarded as the playground of budget backpackers and nomadic hippies, Montañita has been moving steadily upmarket in recent years as wealthier travelers begin to discover this happening beach destination. As a result, tourists are no longer confined to dingy hostels thanks to an influx of chic boutiques which have popped up around town. Here are the best.

Ohana Language School

Resort, Boutique Hotel, Garden Hotel

Perched on a hill at the back of town, Ohana is a hit for its tranquil garden that overlooks the sea. Polished bamboo is used extensively throughout the site, including the elegant interiors of its well-appointed cabañas and dorms. As the name suggests, in-house Spanish classes are held in an idyllic oceanfront setting.

ME Hotel in Montañita Estates

Resort, Independent Hotel, Boutique Hotel

Probably the finest boutique in town, ME Hotel feels a little out of place in Montañita due to its ultra-chic contemporary design. Each of the 16 rooms is spacious and airy, with some even featuring a Jacuzzi overlooking the sea. It’s not that close to the beach, although guests seem happy enough to lounge around its expansive pool complex amid a lush garden setting.
