The Shana Residences is a small, luxury condominium building in central Manuel Antonio with only 8 residences. They are part of the Shana Hotel & Resort--and are not only the nicest accommodations in the Shana Hotel & Resort, but also more luxurious, better located, have better views--and are less expensive per bedroom than the hotel. The Shana Residences are located in the middle of Manuel Antonio, on Quepos Point--which is known for it's luxury, sparse development. Due to this, the area is surrounded by vivid rainforest--and therefore, tons of wildlife. It is not uncommon to see monkeys, sloths, iguanas, butterflies, toucans, parrots, pelicans and scarlet macaws from your balcony! Furthermore, there are 2 beaches within walking distance: Playa Bisanz and Playa Espadilla. Playa Bisanz is a charming, cove beach, accessible via a nice 10 minute walk--and has the best snorkeling in the area. Playa Espadilla is the primary public beach, is 2 miles long, and stretches all the way to Manuel Antonio national park. Shana Residences #322 is a 2 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom, 1750-square foot, luxury condominium on the parking level (ie easy access--no stairs). It is also one of the most private, being on the far side of the resort, and is nestled by verdant rainforest on the right side. (Watch out for monkeys on your balcony--don't leave bananas lying around!) There is a fully equipped kitchen, a dining area, a living area with a flatscreen TV, a half bath, and a balcony with another dining table. Master bedroom: - King bed - Sitting area w/sofa-bed & flatscreen TV - Private bath - Private balcony Guest bedroom: - King bed (converts to 2 singles) - Private bath - Private balcony In summary--the Shana Residences bring together all of the features and amenities that people look for in a resort--but are also nicer and more private!
