Kelea Surf Spa will provide you with the full Costa Rican experience beginning with our location: the unparalleled oasis of the Ritmo Tropical Hotel. Our hotel is situated at the beginning of the charming village of Malpais. Ritmo is owned and operated by a hospitable local Tico family eager to supply you with a memorable pura vida experience. Within a short walk out of our hotel are some of the best waves around at Playa Carmen, stylish boutiques, a variety of restaurants, and local nightlife.
After a day surfing or exploring the area you can relax in the peaceful setting of Kelea Surf Spa. Grab a cold drink and lounge in a hammock under the canopy while swaying to the sound of ocean waves and tropical birds (you might even spot a monkey!). Cool off in the garden pool, surrounded by lush banana trees and coconut palms. Your home-away-from-home for the week will be one of seven spacious and well-appointed cabinas furnished with teak wood furniture and decorated with colorful tile.
You’ll love dining at Ritmo Tropical. This family-run restaurant is a popular local eatery that uses fresh ingredients in traditional and contemporary Costa Rican dishes with an Italian flair.

Kelea Surf Spa’s Hawaii home is located a short drive from the charming historic town of Haleiwa, adjacent to the most well-known surf breaks on the North Shore.
Hop on one of our bikes and follow a bike path that leads from Sunset Beach to Waimea Bay, which is a short walk to shops, market, and restaurants. Catch up on your beach read under one of the private lanais, or take a refreshing dip in our private pool. Retreat to your private deck for some solitude, or gather with your new friends out on the main deck for some post-surf happy hour. Our house is equipped with hammocks, comfy couches, a ping pong table, and an expansive yard with tropical plants and fruit trees. One of the best snorkel spots on Oahu is within walking distance from the house. Snorkel gear can be easily rented on the beach.
Each day, our chef prepares fresh and locally-sourced meals to nourish you before and after your surf sessions. Our organic mixed greens are grown at a nearby hillside and our fish is freshly caught when available. We are happy to accommodate special dietary needs or allergies.
