Andaz Costa Rica Resort


Guanacaste luxury

On a verdant private peninsula curving out into the Gulf of Papagayo, Andaz Costa Rica Resort is a great base from which to explore Guanacaste.

Designed by Costa Rican architect Ronald Zurcher, all 132 rooms and 21 suites look out over Culebra Bay from a hillside, feeling like luxury treehouses amongst the tropical forest canopy.

The resort features three beaches, a world-class golf course, a spa, four themed restaurants and an exciting range of land-based and waterborne activities both directly from the peninsula and close by.
