Located on the Peninsula Papagayo, the new Andaz stands quietly and almost imperceptible among the trees, overlooking the sapphire blue waters of Culebra Bay. Design by renowned Costa Rican architect Ronald Zurher, the first Latin American Andaz was inspired by the organic forms and shapes of the native flora and fauna. Andaz Papagayo´s free-flowing environment means: no desks, no formality and thus, no stress. The hotel features 153 guestrooms and Suites decorated with woven textiles, solid woods and carved artifacts highlighting the rich Costa Rican aesthetic. Each of them offer a spacious balcony with breathtaking views of Culebra Bay and the tropical dry forest. Four of the twenty-one Suites have plunge pools, while the Presidential Suite offers a private, full-size pool. Upscale amenities, a healthy-minded minibar and complimentary wireless Internet are available to all guests. Three themed restaurants offer farm-to-table ingredients and locally inspired cuisine. The open kitchens allow an intimate interaction with chefs, making guests feel as though they are visiting family. Guests will enjoy a variety of amenities including two secluded beaches, one swimming pool for the family and one for the adult’s relaxation and an impressive 11,000 sq ft Spa. The Marina Papagayo, the largest and most advanced marina in Central America, offers 180 slips, impressive state-of-the-art facilities, and a full menu of boating services catered primarily to the yachting community. With breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean, the monkeys monitoring your swing and giant trees as spectators, golfing becomes a lifetime experience. Arnold Palmer´s 18-hole, Par-72 championship Signature golf course will welcome professional as well as recreational golfers. True to the Andaz brand, Andaz Papagayo reflects Costa Rica’s Pura Vida philosophy, creating locally-inspired experiences and engaging guests in the local culture in a comfortable, unique atmosphere for which Andaz is known.
