About elena ciccone

Elena and Mikel found this paradise a while ago thru good friends, Cristina and Dante, and together with them decided to build a home away from home, the ideal escape from it all. The project became reality in 2010 thanks to everybody's dedication and Dante ecobuilding expertise, and now we are happy to enjoy and share it.

Why elena ciccone chose Hermosa Cóbano Beach

The power of nature in this area is almost overwhelming and at the same time peaceful. Playa Hermosa is one the best beaches in the country and probably the world, the sunset here are breathtaking and the nights with the sky full of stars are magical. Surf, yoga, the simple and healthy lifestyle are for us few of many advantages/attractions of this place.

Always a treat!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at Mali several times and it is always, always, always a great experience. The ladies at Batik are helpful, accommodating and all around lovely. The house is as shown in the photos - in a word, gorgeous! Plenty to do close by and yet a bit removed from the hustle of the main beach area so that you feel you can relax.

Private piece of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We have visited Batik 4 times. Our most recent trip was to Casa Mali. Gorgeous accomadtions, your own private pool, short walk through the mango trees to the beach, what could be more perfect!

Casa Mali offers enough service to make your stay enjoyable and worry free but also the privacy to make you feel as though you are in your own home.

We can't wait to go again!

Just INCREDIBLE! We felt as though we were one with nature. Our 2 young boys had the time of their life. We, as family, bonded and left with such life experiences! We can't wait to go back.

Slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

Spent 10 days at batik and totally disconnected from the craziness that is our life. Stunning Balanise indoor/outdoor home nestled in the natural, jungle like beauty that is Costa Rica. The residence is a 3 minute walk from one of the most stunning beaches and breathtaking sunsets imaginable. I'm not sure what was most amazing... Listening to the birds and monkeys chat as you shower in the morning or sharing a beach with only a handful of people, or the relaxing evenings swinging on the hammock sipping a delicious cocktail. Hands down one of the most peaceful, beautiful places we have been. Would highly recommend batik for either a romantic getaway or a family vacation where the kids will forget about their hand-held gadgets and spend the day surfing and swimming, and the evenings playing hide and seek outdoors (just like we used to as kids!). Love it, love it, love it. And can't wait to go back!!

Batik, a beatiful hideaway home in the forest, only steps away from the sea!

  • 5 of 5

When we firts arrived, despite the fact that there is a lot to do and see in this area, we barely left the house for few days. It is just so relaxing to seat by the pool or lie in the hammock listening to the birds and watching the palm trees that you don' t want to leave.

The house really is very stylish. We particularly loved how open it is - sitting in the evening in a lounge with no walls and showering in the open.

The kitchen has everything you could possibly need and the whole place is well looked after by the staff.

We love the two minutes walk trough the forest full of monkies, birds and amazing coloured crabs.

This bring you out onto one of the largest beaches we have seen where you can literally walk for kilometers.

The water is warm and the weather is fantastic.

We would definitely come bakc, our only advice to fellow travellers is to rent a solid 4x4 car, as the roads are not briliant, but definetely worth travelling to get here!

Amazing villa and beach

  • 5 of 5

Batik Casa Mali villa is amazing, first class comfort that looks as good in person as it does in the pictures. The beach is a short walk and the waves are perfect for swimming in, and for anyone looking to learn how to surf!
