4 top luxury hotels in Costa Rica

Costa Rica has become one of the top tourist destinations in recent years for its overwhelming beauty, lavish rainforests, miles of white sand beaches, and some of the best surfing and golf in the world. Along with the best ambiance, Costa Rica is home to some of most luxurious hotels around.

The Rancho Pacifico is one of Costa Rica’s finest Eco-Friendly hotels and Spa. Located in the Costa Ballena(Whale Coast), named for the abundance of whales who live in the area. The hotels location is one of the last places in Costa Rica where you can still have an untouched rainforest experience. The hotel provides a variety of Villas, Suites, and an exotic treehaus villa hideaway where you are suspended 20 feet in the air for one of the most breathtaking views imaginable. The Spa Tranquila is a tree-top lap of luxury, with multiple infinity pools, serene Spa gardens, and spring-fed soaking tubs, leaving nothing to desire. We all get wrapped up in our day to day lives and we forget to really appreciate the world around us. A visit to this eco-friendly luxury resort will engage all of your senses and bring out your sense of adventure!

The Zephyr Palace is located in Costa Rica’s Central Pacific coast. The property boasts a number of luxury suites that will take you to a whole new world. You can also rent the “mansion” and experience true privacy and bliss. Weddings, honeymoons, and special events are delicately detailed and provide a truly unforgettable experience. The hotel gives a unique spin on romance by showing you the wild side of elegance and luxury.

The Arenal Volcano area is one of the top tourist destinations of Costa Rica and for good reason. The area is home to exotic rainforests, thermal hot springs, and of course the active Arenal Volcano. The Tabacon Grand Spa Thermal Resort is located at the base of the Arenal Volcano and boasts the Tabacan Hot Springs which is the only place you will want to be after a long day touring the Arenal area. The Tacacan Hot Springs has been named one of the world’s best eco-spa by National Geographic Magazine, and is certainly not something to miss on your next trip to the Arenal area.

If a great round of golf is what you are looking for, than the Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica at Peninsula Papagayo is where you need to be. This par-72, 18-hole golf course was designed by Arnold Palmer and rests in between the mountains and Pacific Ocean. The resort offers a number of golf packages from the beginner to the expert and can be quite challenging. The Resort sports 155 different accommodations including suites, and residences. If you are looking for a true home away from home experience, the residences can give you all that and more.

No matter where you plan to stay you are sure to enjoy the unrivalled and exotic atmosphere that Costa Rica has to offer.
