WHY DO WE SHOW EXPIRED LISTINGS?

A beautiful eco-lodge in Playa Avellanas, Guanacaste, Costa Rica is looking for a trained chef to manage the operations of an on site restaurant. The lodge opened in October 2018 and has been hosting very happy guests for the last year and a half. The eco-lodge is managed by a wonderful couple, Paul and Lisa who live on-site and oversee all day to day operations.

We are located in the quiet neighbourhood of Playa Avellanas, just south of Tamarindo in Guanacaste, Costa Rica. We offer a perfect setting to relax, unwind, and connect with nature. Our lodge grounds offer a lush green escape and feature an outdoor pool, garden, and patio areas. Our accommodation options include rooms and 2-bedroom villas. All of our rooms/villas have private bathrooms and dining tables. The lodge has a beautiful pool, breakfast bar, yoga pavilion, games room, and juice bar on site. The area around Playa Avellanas is a quiet, safe, laid back neighbourhood. Lagartillo Beach (Playa Lagartillo) located just 200m from our lodge is loved by locals but is rather unknown to tourists. Aside from a few times a year, the beach is practically deserted, aside from a few local fishermen in the waters at sunset.

The eco-lodge has a fully operational kitchen on-site and over the last 3 months, we've had a chef on-site who prepared lunch and dinner for our guests on a set menu basis. Our current chef is moving on and we are looking to bring another chef to take his place. We are happy to accept a couple or a single person.

 

The ideal candidate would check all of these criteria:

- A trained chef, with a focus on healthy cuisine (vegan/vegetarian is a bonus)

- Able to manage the restaurant operation, including ordering supplies, scheduling staff, etc

- Fluent in English with some Spanish knowledge 

- be willing to relocate to Costa Rica ASAP for a period of 3-6 months (relocation assistance is not provided)

 

Our Eco Lodge prides itself on being an environmentally friendly, sustainable lodge, and we are looking for our menus to reflect these values. We are looking to serve locally sourced healthy meals with a focus on plant-based meals, some fish-based options and some meat options.
