Colours Oasis Resort is a Key West styled boutique hotel with all the charm of a classic guesthouse in San José, Costa Rica. Colours is a haven and takeoff point for the nascent gay and lesbian travel industry in Costa Rica but very open, inviting and “inclusive” to all guests that embrace acceptance, freedom of expression and lifestyle.
A bold and adventurous concept for gay and friendly (inclusive) travel in Costa Rica, and for the many prior guests of Colours: gay, lesbian, bi, transgender and straight alike who have enjoyed its openness, hospitality, superb service and conviviality for more than 24 years in San Jose. Colours opened modestly in the high-end Westside – Embassy Area of the district of Rohrmoser directly on “the Boulevard”, but always within the style of a classic Key West guest house. Beginning with nine rooms and four baths, it now boasts, after several expansions and re-decorations, 22 rooms on two stories, each with private bath; a cozy bar; full restaurant with an inviting and attractively priced lunch and dinner menu; relaxing pool and sun terrace; hot tub Jacuzzi and exercise area. Each room is distinctly and individually furnished in good taste and elegance; several have cooking facilities, and others can be combined into a self-contained two or three-room apartment with private sitting room for groups of up to six and more.
Colours Oasis connects all the dots of Costa Rica gay and lesbian travel. It has a special affiliation and working relationship with gay and lesbian friendly hotels – many of them gay and lesbian owned themselves which have since sprung up in Costa Rica’s most popular tourist destinations. As a trailblazer in opening and expanding gay travel in Costa Rica, Colours has been an inspiration and respected bastion of support, good advice and and assistance for many of these flourishing Costa Rica gay hotels and B&Bs.
