KayaSol Surf Hotel is a family owned and operated business celebrating over 10 years in excellent customer service. We pride ourselves on making sure that you have the BEST vacation ever because you deserve it! We feel vacation should be an opportunity to step outside of one’s current reality and daily stresses of life into a relaxed, comfortable and inspiring environment, allowing you the freedom to explore the inner depths of the soul or to simply just be.

Our rooms are located under the lush canopy of the indigenous flora and fauna of Costa Rica giving one a sense of being in the jungle. We have several old growth trees on property including the Guanacaste and Pochote trees, which help preservation of the local howler monkey families.


Owners Ryan and Carly (Sohan) first met out in the water in 2001. They were both on extended surf trips, wandering intentionally to explore the bounties of this rich coast. Like many ex-pat residents, after finding Nosara, they decided to stay.  The romance they found with the ocean and with each other captivated them in a profound way. In 2004, an opportunity arose for them and with the help of their family; Ray and Pam, the 4 of them purchased KayaSol Surf Hotel.

Their life-long dream became a reality!

Ryan, Sohan and their 3 children live their lives in harmony of Nosara and the Colorado Mountains. Ray and Pam, now retired, spend the majority of their year in Nosara. You will most likely have a lovely chat with “Pamela” while dining in our restaurant and enjoy the blues harp of “Chicago Ray” with his band “Livin’ the Dream.”

This is our 2nd time at the Kaya Sol Surf Hotel, and we are planning to go back next year once again! This place is amazing. The people working there are nice, the food is great and only 3 minutes of walk from the beach with awesome waves.

We just got back from our vacation and I'm longing to go back already! KayaSol Surf absolutely rocks. We stayed in a one bedroom cabin with a queen size bed and bunk beds. It really was all our family of four needed. Nosara is so incredible there's no desire to hang out inside, so we mainly used the cabin for sleeping. The room was comfy and clean with a clothes line and hammock outside.
