Each room is afforded its own rooftop terrace, complete with lush plants, a sail for shade and furnished with rattan furniture made in Sarchí, a Costa Rican town famous for its inhabitants’ craftsmanship. The architects have used locally-sourced materials throughout the project, such as in ceilings that are made of “caña brava” (a type of grass) installed in an intricate fishbone pattern. Local craftsmen have also created custom furniture made of local wood and using traditional techniques in new ways.

Mint Santa Teresa酒店的核心空间是一处公共休息厅，这里配有宽敞的泳池和日落酒吧。此处的公共空间朝各个方向开放，其后侧的绿植屏障，让来访者在享受私隐环境的同时，也能感受到自然植被的环抱。休息厅也是游人、酒店所有者和当地居民的会面场所。清晨的公共长桌供应自助早餐，而傍晚这里又提供无限畅饮。Mint Santa Teresa酒店为旅人带来另一种旅行体验，它带领来访者探索最原汁原味的当地生活。
The heart of Mint Santa Teresa is the communal lounge area with its infinity pool and sunset bar. It is open on all sides save for a single wall of plants by the entrance, providing the guests with some privacy while maintaining the natural setting. The lounge serves as a meeting spot for guests, owners and locals of the area. In the morning, a breakfast buffet, is eaten at a communal table and later in the day stories are exchanged over drinks by sunset. The experience at Mint Santa Teresa is part of a new form of tourism, where visitors want to learn more about a destination and get a sense of what it is like to actually live there.

Benjamin Garcia Saxe这样形容他的设计构思：“传统意义上的酒店设计仅仅是景观环境中的庞然大物，它们与周边景色无关，也缺乏真正意义上的人际交往关系。在这里，我们努力将酒店环境与自然景观建立联系，为那些渴望真实生活的游人们带去独特的旅行体验。我们致力于打造一系列与自然美景相关联的活动空间，将丰富的社交及文化活动与居住体验结合起来。并最终营造出独特的休闲度假氛围。”
Benjamin Garcia Saxe explains his vision: “Hotels traditionally became vast objects in the landscape that bear no relation to their surroundings and are devoid of genuine human interaction. At Mint, we endeavored to create a contextual design that adapts to its landscape and offers a new type of experience for a breed of traveler seeking authenticity. We worked hard on creating spaces that combine an appreciation of natural beauty with a rich array of possibilities for social and cultural interaction. The result is a completely unique way of thinking about hospitality and wellness.”
