At Andaz Peninsula Papagayo Resort, where the Gulf of Papagayo meets the sapphire-blue waters of Culebra Bay, pura vida embraces the ideas of enjoying life, appreciating the beauty of the surroundings and savoring the local culture.
Opened in 2013, Andaz Peninsula Papagayo Resort's stress-free environment begins at check-in: no desks, no bureaucracy and no formalities. Costa Rica's abundant flora and fauna – the country contains 5 percent of the world's biodiversity – inspired the resort's spectacular organic design by architect Ronald Zurcher.
Blending modern design with the rich Costa Rican aesthetic, the 153 rooms feature woven textiles, solid woods and carved artifacts. Guestrooms and suites all have a balcony with bay and forest views. A health-minded mini bar and wi-fi are complimentary. Four of the twenty-one suites contain a plunge pool and the Presidential Suite offers a private, full-sized pool.
Each of Andaz Peninsula Papagayo Resort's three themed restaurants reflects an aspect of Costa Rican culture. Casual Chao Pescao Small Plates & Bar presents a seasonal menu inspired by local cuisine along with mixologists' specialties and live music. Open-air Rio Bhongo, the meeting point, evokes a farmers market. Serving fresh seafood prepared using sophisticated culinary techniques, Signature restaurant Ostra is elegant and romantic. Open kitchens allow interaction with chefs, making guests feel as if they're in the home of a friend who happens to be an exceptional cook.
High in Costa Rica's tropical forest and inspired by Papagayo's culture, scents and touches, Onda Spa individually tailors treatments, addressing guests' specific needs, goals and desires.
Andaz Peninsula Papagayo Resort includes two sunny and secluded beaches, an adults-only pool, a family pool and the complimentary Cambi Kids Club program.
The first Latin American Andaz, the resort is infused with the character of its locale and reflects the culture and spirit of the surroundings through its Andaz Salon program.
