El Chante is living proof that 5-star luxury does not have to stand apart and clash with the pre-existing natural environment
designed FOR SUSTAINABILITY
Unlike anything that exists in the Costa Rican market, El Chante is a pioneer in sustainable luxury. Built in harmony with nature, El Chante is designed to make a minimal impact on the natural environment and instead, to work with and give back to the land surrounding it.
Situated on a hillside, 300 meters above the ocean, El Chante’s architecture is based in the Pacific Rim Tropical style – a building philosophy that celebrates the tropical lifestyle through open-air structures to elicit natural ventilation and cooling. With every beam of wood strategically placed to promote free-flowing air circulation, air-conditioning is rendered useless in El Chante. Instead of relying on energy-consuming AC-units, guests at El Chante can get away from man-made technology and feel completely comfortable and relaxed in the ideal climate to enjoy the tropics.
In addition to the open-air architecture, El Chante features numerous other recycling systems and sustainable features that make it a model for eco-friendly luxury. El Chante is living proof that 5-star luxury does not have to stand apart and clash with the pre-existing natural environment. El Chante is the ideal spot for people who enjoy the finer things in life with a passion for adventure and love of nature and the environment. Costa Rica’s most progressive home is evidence that luxury and giving back to the earth and local communities are no longer mutually exclusive. Extending the eco-lodge and sustainable tourism trend to the exclusive, private vacation rental market, El Chante is paving the way for eco-conscious travelers who want the very best quality of life and natural immersion on their tropical vacations.
