The premiere of the Andaz Papagayo Resort in Costa Rica brought with it the updated concept of resort vacations. Here are 3 reasons why you should consider visiting:
Travelers, Not Tourists
This Papagayo Costa Rica hotel stands as a shining gem among Guanacaste’s veteran resorts for many reasons, the most obvious being the fresh, modern design. The spherical architecture and elemental décor breathe life into the familiar concept of luxury travel. The hotel was designed to create an upscale experience without breaking guests from their connection with the country’s natural beauty. This is not your typical resort experience a la the Bahamas, but a thoughtfully-crafted collection of artisan touches and local flare that appeals to travelers more than tourists.
Buffets Be Damned
Much like its design, the resort’s restaurants are stirringly inventive. Whether you seek inspired casual fare and live music or a meal more refined, you have some really, really tasty options. The hotel’s Ostra Restaurant takes pride in its seafood, which is no surprise. Flanked by the fruitful waters of the Gulfo de Papagayo and the Pacific Ocean, the privileged location lends itself to the menu with delicious results. For something that mimics a Costa Rican market, check out the live cooking station at the Rio Bhongo Restaurant. This open-air eatery sits in the center of the infinity pool, giving guests something to counter the traditional sit-down dinner. For a fun night out we recommend tapas and cocktails on the open terrace of Chao Pescao. Live music is featured several nights a week. The empanadas and patacones are out of this world!
Luxury. Relaxation. Seclusion. Authenticity.
Location, Location, Location…Location. The Andaz Papagayo Resort sits in the sweet spot where you get it all. Logistically speaking, the hotel is in a perfect position to serve as the first or last stop on your Costa Rica vacation. A 45-minute drive will bring you to the Liberia international airport, and attractions like the Rincon de la Vieja volcano are near enough for day trips. Though, you might not want to leave the property at all – gorgeous views of the bay of Culebra, two stunning beaches, and gorgeous natural surroundings create a true modern paradise.
