In the Land of Two Seasons The Four Seasons Stands Out

Playa Blanca at the Four Seasons from aboveIf Costa Rica has just two seasons then it is fortunate that those seeking luxury accommodation can find it at Four Seasons Papagayo Resort.

Set in 87 acres of its own private parkland at the very tip of the peninsular it has water on three sides and boats two of the most perfect beaches.

The Resort’s 181 guest rooms, suites and residences capture the exotic character of Costa Rica, with comfortable rattan and bamboo furnishings, local artwork and indigenous wood and stone finishes.

Bath in one of the four estate houses at the Four SeasonsWe stayed in one of the 16 beautiful Canopy suites set among the highest reaches of the jungle canopy, like tree houses on the hillside, and offer stunning views of the jungle canopy and Pacific Ocean below.

Suites like ours have a huge bedroom a stunning lounge area a massive terrace with a glorious plunge pool and most importantly for travel writers like us who are working they include complimentary premium internet access.

Later this year the already stunning hotel will pull back the curtains on an even sexier, more modern and lighter version of its lobby, rooms and restaurants. From the first moment of their arrival guests will feel the tropical rainforest reverie.

Billowing, flowing sheers and a colourful mosaic wall treatment will complement and soften the indigenous stone pillars at the hotel’s entrance. A dramatic new chandelier hanging above custom-designed social seating will create an eclectic and stylish lobby.

The resort’s guest rooms, suites and Pacificos will see enhanced lighting, sumptuous fabrics and colours including shades of aqua, kiwi, lavender, magenta and mango as well as new furniture.

The hotel is redesigning the restaurants with a new exciting look and feel. The Italian and seafood restaurant Di Mare is being re-created as Cena Sociale that will feature a more casual ambiance and wine bar. Congo’s and Papagayo will become one new all day restaurant Sol y Sombra with circular centre bar, Latin cuisine, fresh juice and smoothies by day and creative cocktails and live entertainment by night.
