About The Residency
-Find inspiration among the forest as an artist in residence at Hotel Belmar-

Our Artist Residency Program offers local and international artists the opportunity to live at Hotel Belmar for a period of two to three weeks, for a space of dedicated creative work in our unique cloud forest location.

We welcome artists with a particular interest in nature; in the cultural realities of Monteverde; and/or in the particular social experience of a Hotel. Artists could be seeking to work in drawing, painting, sculpture, writing, performance or other art forms.

The beauty and serenity of the cloud forest will support artists in imagining, developing and exhibiting unique works of art; as they gather inspiration both from the natural surroundings, as well as from the local community and the social transience of the Hotel environment.

Our belief is that art is wonderfully beneficial for the advancement of knowledge, and for community-building through creative experimentation. Therefore, our artists in residence will be encouraged to offer workshops and hold open studio hours to share their work with our diverse international clientele and with the local community.

At the end of the program, artists will be expected to present their work in a public exhibition or a similar activity to display their completed work. The Hotel will reserve the right to select 2 works to keep for its archives.

Experience the breath-taking beauty of Hotel Belmar amid the majestic grandeur of the Costa Rican rainforest

Hotel Belmar is located in Costa Rica’s lush cloud forest and nestled in the mountaintops of the Monteverde Reserve, the venerable, renowned Hotel Belmar offers guests truly unique experiences full of natural wonder, elegance, and warm friendly service – all within an unprecedented sensitivity to the preservation of the environment. We call this experience The Art of Nature – a simple phrase that sums up our commitment to the exquisite and beautiful natural experiences our guests will enjoy during their time spent at Hotel Belmar. With the coveted award for 5 levels of sustainability, Hotel Belmar’s commitment to the environment as well as the local community has been unyielding for over 30 years.

Hotel Belmar’s Vision

Our Vision is to offer unique experiences of excellent quality, always committed to nature and to our community, hoping that as our clients follow their journeys, they will disperse the seeds of ecological consciousness around the world.

Our Artist Residency program is born of this same vision as we aim to curate an inspiring stay for our artists, arousing artistic curiosity and cultivating the possibility for artists in residence to indulge their creativities with the inspirational beauty of our built and natural surroundings. This in turn will affect the experiences we offer our guests and bring value to our community, thus taking us full circle.

Artist Studio

Selected artists will have 24 hour access to a work studio (15m2) with a large table, enough lighting, and any other agreed-upon project necessities. The studio also has ample windows and scenic views of the natural surroundings.
