Costa Rica Luxury Resorts & Lodging
Costa Rica’s reputation as an eco-tourist hot spot might have you thinking of rustic lodges, mosquito netting, and no air conditioning — while this might be true in some parts of the country, there’s no doubt that Costa Rica still has its fair share of luxury resorts. There is a multitude of upscale resorts that can be substituted or added to any our custom-planned Costa Rica luxury vacations so that you have the trip of your life!
Which luxury resorts should I consider in Guanacaste?
As the most developed region of Costa Rica in terms of tourist attractions, Guanacaste has a wide range of accommodations with great hotel options for your luxury vacation. The Papagayo Peninsula area is especially known for its exclusivity and luxury lodging, including the unique Andaz Papagayo Resort, which overlooks the Culebra Bay and features two secluded beaches with ultimate privacy for either family fun or complete relaxation by the sea. For a familiar scene, the Four Seasons Papagayo Resort offers 5-star accommodations, fine dining, and a wide range of services to assure that your stay meets all expectations for a tropical, luxury vacation. If you’re looking for a cozy getaway, the Rio Perdido Hotel & Thermal River sits on a private, 600-acre nature reserve with mineral swimming pools, hiking trails, a lavish spa, and nearby artisanal shops.
What are the best luxury resorts at Arenal Volcano?
In the Arenal region, the ultra-exclusive Nayara Springs Resort contains some of the top-rated restaurants in the country, an award-winning spa, and a piano lounge and bar — along with a fitness center and massive villas. While no longer erupting, the Arenal Volcano looms over the area and creates a stunning backdrop for fast-paced adventure and luxurious vacation memories. You can also enjoy a relaxing, long soak in the hot springs at the Tabacon Grand Spa Thermal Resort, which sits on 900-acres of land that is nearly entirely blanketed by lush tropical rainforest. With plenty of natural beauty surrounding the resort, you’ll feel like you’re relaxing in the middle of your own private forest.
What are some of the top luxury boutique hotels on the remote South Pacific Coast?
The stretch of the South Pacific coastline from Dominical to Ojochal (also known as the Costa Ballena) is on its way to becoming one of the hottest destinations in Costa Rica. This remote area has four pristine beaches, diverse wildlife, and a sprawling untouched rainforest. Modern design enthusiasts will love Kura Design Villas, which has all the amenities of a high-class vacation including a cliff-side infinity pool with amazing ocean views. Or, if you’re looking to find a secluded getaway for some romantic relaxation, the Rancho Pacifico Hotel is an exclusive adults-only luxury hotel that may be small but certainly feels like a sprawling private estate.
What can you do on a luxury vacation in Costa Rica?
Spa Retreats — The perfect luxury vacation should include a chance for your worries to melt away entirely, and Costa Rica doesn’t disappoint with the finest spa retreats in the world. From Costa Rican coffee scrub treatments to lava rock massages in private bungalows, you are sure to have a completely tranquil sensory experience.
Waterfalls and Hot Springs — With about 25% of the country’s land as protected natural parks, the waterfall systems and hot springs in Costa Rica are beyond extraordinary. Even the guided hike to see the pristine blue-green waters up close is sure to be breathtaking with the various wildlife and vegetation along the way. After a long day’s hike, you can relax and renew your energy in warm mineral pools that are surrounded by the rainforest for the ultimate luxury experience.
Yoga and Wellness Activities — What better way to relax than to enjoy yoga and meditation in the middle of a soothing rainforest, with experienced instructors to guide your spiritual journey. Many of the hotels offer yoga and wellness lessons in the calm privacy of on-site studios, but you can also take your inner balance to the next level with paddleboard yoga.
World-class Golf Courses — Expansive, lush green courses will have anyone from novices to expert golfers taking their time with the game. Costa Rica’s rolling landscape makes for interesting plays, and with many of the courses on the grounds of 5-star hotels and resorts, you can be sure that you will leave with only the best round.
Diving and Snorkeling — The clear blue sea is full of jaw-dropping, brightly-colored flora and wildlife. We’re partnered with full service, PADI-certified dive shops to ensure a safe and amazing scuba diving and snorkeling experience so that you can always cherish the memories of your underwater adventures in Costa Rica.
We have a wide variety of excursions and activities to ensure that your vacation is just as luxurious as you could ever want. Rather than being stuck on a plane with people you don’t know, we can even plan out privately chartered flights to take you anywhere in the country. An experienced, bilingual guide will spice up your private ground transfers, and guided tours will ensure you get the 5-star experience at each and every destination so that even the jungle adventures don’t have to be rustic.
