“A diamond in the rough” 355 acres, in the mountains of the Nicoya Peninsula outside of Tambor, comes a new development, ‘Diamond Cove.’ This luxury, eco-friendly residential gated community and destination resort hotel project is offered by Kalia Modern Eco-Living, an experienced California based developer with a proven record of delivering quality real estate.
150 homes and 200 condominiums will enjoy wave-breaking white water views throughout the community, all within range to hear the surf of the Pacific lapping into the cove down below. The beach is nestled in a wide sandy cove and is split by a small river through a mangrove forest with beach access down a tree-canopied road.
A beautiful ridge with several peaks offers breath-taking panoramic views to the wide-open Pacific, the mainland coastline lights of Puntarenas and numerous islands around the Gulf of Nicoya.
A joint venture with a major hotelier will provide high-end resort amenities. The development of the commercial entertainment center, just a few minutes walk to the beach, will offer boutique-style hotel units, spa & fitness center, championship golf course, enormous central swimming pool with waterfalls, fountains and islands, additional private swimming pools nestled in hidden gardens for exclusive guests, world-cuisine restaurants, bars, coffee cafes, media center, supermarket, gift shops, parks, trails, BBQ areas, playground and tennis and basketball courts.
In addition to the hotel amenities, Diamond Cove is investigating the development of a floating pier and private marina, medical clinic, boat taxis to and from the Tambor airport, Isla Tortuga and other tourist towns, shuttles to and from the beach, equestrian center, hand-gliding launch pad from one of the bluffs and automobile storage units. There is also discussion of a private airstrip.
The property is located five minutes from the Puntarenas – Paquera ferry landing on the Peninsula. The town of Puntarenas, directly across the gulf, is a cruise ship landing with a ferry harbor, existing yacht club and approval for an additional marina. Puntarenas is a scenic two-hour drive from San Jose.
After a pleasant one hour ferry ride across the Gulf, drivers can reach their destination in just minutes. This makes Diamond Cove one of the easiest and most pleasant communities to reach in Costa Rica. (Compare this to the 5-6 hours of pot-hole laden roads that buyers at other developments have to endure.)
The town of Paquera is 10 minutes away offering medical services, a bank, supermarkets, gas and automotive, schools, and numerous other shops and restaurants. The closest airport (20 minutes from Diamond Cove) is in Tambor which is a 25 minute flight from San Jose serviced by two regional carriers.
Tambor, a popular little resort town, has several established, high end, residential communities and hotels including Los Delfines Golf & Country Club with a challenging 9-hole golf course. Other popular beach towns such as Montezuma, Mal Pais and Santa Teresa are just minutes down the road from Tambor.
There are several wild-life reserves on the Peninsula, two of the largest being Cabo Blanco National Park and Curu Reserve. Isla Tortuga, a famous day-trip destination, sits off the coast and is a main center piece of the incredible views of the Pacific and a 10-15 minute ride by boat.
It is the vision of Diamond Cove and Kalia to bring a “breath of fresh air” to the homeowner by creating a boutique-style, modern eco village. As an international developer, whose designs and craftsmanship, have won HGTV’s “Designer Challenge” twice and in collaboration with world re-known architect Javier Salinas in Costa Rica, it is the mission of Kalia to help homeowners transform their lives as well as their living space with an exciting sense of style.
Some of the exclusive touches in green building technologies that will be used include; passive heating and cooling, green roofing systems, water reclamation and use, high-end sustainable materials, environmental conservation and minimal earth excavation and the use of solar energy.
For homeowners looking for a new way of life in Costa Rica there was the Los Suenos Marriott and the Four Seasons Papagayo. Now, Diamond Cove, when it’s completed, will be the next “must buy” or “must stay” location in Costa Rica.
