Punto de Vista Weddings

first look in costa rica

Villa Punto de Vista is a magnificent architectural feat that offers the best of both worlds, a resort style full service staff to ensure that you have everything you need and the intimacy of your own private villa. This uniquely designed villa is perfect for those looking for an adventurous yet luxurious destination wedding and vacation experience.

The 12,000 square foot villa is perched in the perfect spot closeby the world renowned Manuel Antonio National Park and boasts epic views of the Pacific Ocean and the surrounding jungle. It is located on it’s own private 2.5 acres of tropical jungle so don’t be surprised if you look out the window to see a toucan flying by or monkeys scampering about in the trees. Speaking of windows, this place is filled with huge windows that afford a beautiful view from nearly every room in the villa.

Accommodations at Punto de Vista

The villa boasts 10 gorgeous suites, each with a unique color scheme and design. Some are perfect for accommodating families and there is such variety that everyone will find something they just are in love with! This is what makes Punto de Vista such a great spot for a destination wedding. Having space for up to 27 guests means that your bridal party and/or closest family members can all stay right here on the property but everyone has their own space in which to relax and enjoy themselves. Imagine taking an adventurous tropical vacation with all your favorite people and then topping it all off with one of the most special events of your life. It can’t get much better than that!

The villa is capable of hosting up to 100 guests for your special event so if more rooms are needed the villa staff is happy to take care of finding overflow accommodations. There are other private villas that are handily nearby or there are also a few luxurious and comfortable hotel options in the area.

Full service staff at Punto de Vista

Speaking of the staff, the villa has a fantastic staff that will ensure your experience is everything you dreamed it would be and take away the stresses of planning. The concierge will be in close contact with you before you even arrive to plan the details for your wedding, arrange accommodations for off-site guests, and help you choose and book excursions and adventure activities for you and your guests both out and about in the Costa Rican jungle and in the villa itself.

The villa also comes with a butler who will be your go-to man for virtually everything during your stay. He can run errands, arrange transportation, recommend and book tours and activities, recommend dining options (including great delivery for inhouse dining), and even step in as the bartender for a little bit if you need a delicious drink whipped up.

A delicious breakfast prepared by the onsite chef is always ready for you each morning. There are plenty of options and the great thing is you never have to worry about getting your day started right. Housekeeping services, landscaping and maintenance and 24-hour security round out the staff. Each staff member is happy to help and ensure that your stay is 100% fabulous!

Villa Punto de Vista Ceremony and Reception Locations

Options for the ceremony abound at Punto de Vista so there’s sure to be the perfect spot to create the atmosphere for your destination wedding that you are dreaming of. Of course many folks who are planning a destination wedding absolutely love the idea of getting married on the beach with all of nature’s glory as the backdrop. The beach is conveniently just a few minutes away from the villa and you can take a fun jaunt in our private beach buggy to get there even quicker. Time your ceremony for when the sun is dropping into the ocean for an unparalleled backdrop of natural beauty for your wedding photos.

If you’re having a grand affair and/or prefer to keep everything all in one place there are several options within the villa itself. The rooftop deck is a favorite among past guests as the view from the villa’s fifth floor of the jungle and the Pacific Ocean is simply breathtaking. The deck is covered so you don’t have to worry about either the intense tropical sun or surprise rain showers yet the walls are open so you can still enjoy those fresh ocean breezes.

Alternatively you can choose the events terrace just one floor below the rooftop deck. The terrace features the same epic view, along with an exquisitely decorated teak and natural rock interior. This is also a great spot for dining as it is close to the kitchen and full-service bar.

The ballroom, while it can be a ceremony spot as well, is the most popular spot in the villa for receptions. The huge windows provide a beautiful view of the rainforest and the villa’s own infinity pool. Here there is also a full-service bar which combined with the disco lighting and sound system that can handle either a DJ or a live band on the mezzanine creates the perfect recipe for an awesome party!

Last but not least the pool deck is a beautiful spot for an intimate ceremony of up to 25 guests. The coral-stone covered seating area is a beautiful little nook beside the infinity pool that makes for a sweet atmosphere. Alternately this is a great space for the bachelor or bachelorette party or other special pre or post wedding events.
