Fateh Kaur Bolivar is an ex-CEO from the stressed out software business. Now making Costa Rica home, she is a top vegan and raw foods chef and certified Kundalini yoga teacher. Fateh has had a passion for cooking since she adolescence and had spent five years training her local Costa Rican cooks the magic of vegan and raw after a lifetime of international experience in the kitchen.
We went to the Waterfall Villas for 5 days. Prior to our arrival, we communicated with Fateh via email and we also spoke on the phone. She was very attentive to our individual needs and requests, and provided us with great advice with regard to our trip. The airport transfer was pre-arranged, we were advised on a variety of wireless service providers, and our room was ready for a wonderful stay.
I loved doing yoga with Fateh every morning. Our backdrop was a beautiful waterfall. I can't say enough about the staff. Everyone from the room service to security were fantastic. A very special thank you for the kitchen staff who attended to our every need and accommodated our meal times around our spa treatments. We greatly enjoyed the massages and facial and body treatments, as well as chiropractic experience. There is no question Fateh has created a paradise that is worth experiencing.
My husband and I had an amazing stay in Costa Rica and Waterfall Villas was the highlight of the trip. We ate all our meals there and they were amazing! Whether you are vegan or not, the food is spectacular. We asked ahead of time if they would use as much local fruits and veggies that were not available in the states as possible, which the very well trained chef met that challenge beautifully. Our room was beautiful and included a hot tub on our private porch. We did a package that included a waterfall blessing ceremony, massage, romantic lunch by the waterfalls, and a trip to the national park. Everything was arranged for us and was top notch. Thanks for a honeymoon we will never forget.

My wife and I had the best time at Waterfall Villas. We ate all our meals there and didn't regret it at all. Every meal was great and the service was great. Most of our trip in Costa Rica was busy and adventurous, so it was so nice to come to the villas and relax. The waterfalls aren't the raging kind, but are beautiful and amazing to lay next to or in. It is an easy hike to the bottom of the falls and there is another trail that we explored a little of, but there was a lot of foliage since it was the start of the rainy season.
Since we went during the start of the rainy season, we had the whole place to ourselves! We stayed in the goddess suite and it was perfect. The room is one big room, even the bathroom, which my wife and I loved. The shower and bed were the best we experienced and the balcony was a nice place to relax. Taking a taxi to dominical beach was easy and fairly close and it was beautiful, as well. We spent most of our time at the villas though just exploring the grounds and resting. I highly recommend going to this place if you want to get away and just enjoy a simple and relaxing time. Fateh did a great job taking care of us and the rest of the staff were really responsive, as well. We hope to return someday. I am already miss the food, sounds, and comforts!
My wife and I stayed in the butterfly room. It was big and awesome. They collected our dirty laundry in the mornings and had it clean and folded by the afternoon! We could hear the waterfall from bed and could enjoy the wildlife of the rainforest from our private balcony. The property is filled with breathtaking spots, including waterfalls that can be hiked, mountain trails, and a deck for yoga classes.
We paid extra for the on-site dinner each night and it was better than we could have imagined. We basically had a private chef and server while we enjoyed the ambience of the candles, waterfall, and incense. The staff and owners were always calm, smiling, and helpful. We did lose electricity (along with the rest of the town) for a few hours during a storm, so make sure that you bring a flashlight. We can't wait to visit again!
What a wonderful place to catch a break. The setting next to the little waterfall, in the jungle, relaxing atmosphere, great vegan food (we only had the breakfast), friendly staff, and close to attractions - we just loved our week there. The only down side is the road close to the hotel. When the trucks come down the hill, they can be pretty loud. In addition, there seems to be regular road construction that easily adds 30 minutes to your drive. If you are looking for peaceful and healing, this is the place to go. If in addition you want to enjoy excellent vegan food, book your trip.
