THERE ARE ENCHANTED CORNERS OF THE WORLD WHERE TIME STANDS STILL. SEPARATE UNIVERSES THAT ARE LIKE LIVING WINDOWS INTO THE DAWN OF CREATION. PENINSULA PAPAGAYO, SHINING QUIETLY ON THE NORTH PACIFIC COAST OF COSTA RICA, IS ONE SUCH PLACE.  

PENINSULA PAPAGAYO TEEMS WITH BOUNDLESS BEAUTY. FORMED BY VOLCANIC ACTIVITY AND SCULPTED BY WIND, RAIN AND SUN, THIS JAGGED PAIR OF PENINSULAS REACHES INTO THE WARM WATERS OF THE GOLFO DE PAPAGAYO, FURTHER PROTECTED BY THE DEEP BLUE LAP OF THE PACIFIC. THE EXPANSE AND DIVERSITY OF UNSPOILED LAND IN THIS AREA OF COSTA RICA IS ASTONISHING: 15 MILES OF COASTLINE, 14 MILES OF BLUFF EDGES, 31 SEPARATE BEACHES OF WHITE, CORAL, GRAY, AND BLACK SANDS. 

PAPAGAYO IS HOME TO THE PRESTIGIOUS ANDAZ AND THE FOUR SEASONS RESORT AS WELL. BOTH RESORTS SHARE AN AWARD-WINNING ARNOLD PALMER SIGNATURE GOLF COURSE.

PENINSULA PAPAGAYO IS A RARE AND WONDERFUL PLACE. PURE AND PRISTINE. A VIRGIN LAND IMMERSED IN AN ASTONISHING MOSAIC OF BEAUTY, IT HAS STOOD SENTINEL AGAINST THE AGES. IMAGES AND IMAGINATION CANNOT CAPTURE THE PALPABLE SPIRIT OF THIS EXOTIC HAVEN. THERE ARE SECRETS ONLY THE LAND CAN SHARE. ENDLESS LIST OF ACTIVITIES FOR CHOL HAMOED: ZIP LINE, RAFTING, ROCK CLIMBING, SKY WALKS, BIRD WATCHING, BUTTERFLY FARMS, HISTORIC AND CULTURAL SITES, CAVERNS, VOLCANOES, SURF, SPORT FISHING, SCUBA DIVING, SAILING AND MORE.

LOCATED EXCLUSIVELY IN NEW YORK, MAUI, LONDON, NAPA VALLEY, AND COSTA RICA, YOUR STAY IN ANDAZ INCLUDES A SPECIALIZED STAFF THAT PROVIDES PERSONALIZED SERVICE AND ATTENTION TO YOUR EVERY INDIVIDUAL NEED.    

NESTLED IN A BREATHTAKING LOCATION, WHERE THE GULF OF PAPAGAYO MEETS THE SAPPHIRE BLUE WATERS OF CULEBRA BAY, ANDAZ PENINSULA PAPAGAYO PERSONIFIES COSTA RICA’S “PURA VIDA” (PURE LIFE) EXPRESSION, AN EXTENSION OF THE NATIVE SPIRIT OF THE COUNTRY. INSPIRED BY THE LOCAL FLORA AND FAUNA, THE LAYOUT OF THE RESORT IS BASED ON AN IMAGINARY GATHERING OF ANIMALS, USING THE SHAPES OF COCOONS AND SHELLS FOR THE DESIGN OF THE STUDIOS AND POOLS. DESIGNED BY RENOWNED COSTA RICAN ARCHITECT RONALD ZURCHER, THE HOTEL HAS CREATED A FREE FLOWING ENVIRONMENT—MEANING NO DESKS, NO PROCESSES, NO FORMALITY, AND THEREFORE, NO STRESS.   

THE RESORT FEATURES BOTH GUEST ROOMS AND SUITES, SOME OF THEM HAVE THEIR OWN SWIM-IN POOLS. THESE ACCOMMODATIONS BALANCE MODERN DESIGN WITH TOUCHES THAT HIGHLIGHT THE COSTA RICAN AESTHETIC—YOU’LL NOTICE HARDWOOD FURNITURE AND TICO ARTWORK. THERE ARE FLOOR-TO-CEILING WINDOWS THAT ALLOWS YOU ENJOY THE NATURAL LIGHT AND SPACIOUS BALCONIES, WITH VIEWS OF THE PACIFIC OCEAN AND FOREST. 

THE BOUTIQUE NATURE OF THE HOTEL ALLOWS IT TO MAXIMIZE ON RELAXATION OPTIONS. THREE SWIMMING POOLS, DESIGNED FOR A NATURAL FEEL, ALLOW FOR EASY TRANSITION FROM "REFRESHING DIP" TO A BITE TO EAT, AS THEY'RE MERE STEPS FROM ONE OF THE THREE RESTAURANTS ON SITE. A SHORT WALK DOWN THE BOARDWALK FINDS YOU ON ONE OF THE HOTEL’S TWO PRIVATE BEACHES. THE LITTLE ONES HAVE THEIR OWN KIDS CLUB, UNDER THE ATTENTIVE EYE OF OUR HIGHLY TRAINED AND SUPER FUN KIDS CLUB STAFF.

THE HOTEL IS LOCATED ONLY 30 MINUTES FROM COSTA RICA'S LIR INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, NEAR THE ENCHANTING PRIETA BEACH CLUB AND THE WORLD CLASS MARINA PAPAGAYO.
