The Andaz Costa Rica Resort At Peninsula Papagayo brought sophistication, stylish architecture and nature-worshipping cuisine to a high-end seaside pocket of northwestern Costa Rica.
The designers behind the Andaz Costa Rica Resort At Peninsula Papagayo—including the architect Ronald Zürcher—created a style that pays homage to the region’s pristine natural beauty.
Inspired by the organic forms of the native flora and fauna, the hotel’s façade resembles local shells, while driftwood handicrafts by Costa Rican artisans hang on the walls, and the local plant caña brava peppers the public spaces. The chic details found throughout the hotel include lamps inspired by the nests of oropendola, a bird endemic to the area.
Standout features in the 153 opulent suites and rooms of the Andaz Costa Rica Resort At Peninsula Papagayo include floor-to-ceiling windows, spacious balconies, and white riverbed floors in the bathrooms, which also offer indoor-outdoor showers and bay views.
The Andaz Peninsula Papagayo Resort features three distinctive restaurants. Chao Pescao, nestled within the lush Guanacaste landscape, offers snacks and small-plate menu, as well as the mixologists’ specialties. Rio Bhongo menu is inspired by a local farmer’s market and Latin cuisine. Finally, Ostra is elegant, discreet and romantic, offering seafood.
The expansive grounds of the resort encompass nature trails, two small beaches, as we as two infinity pools.
