Yesterday we brought you the top ten happiest countries in the world and topping the list was Costa Rica with its lush tropical forests, pristine white sand beaches and ‘pura vida’ lifestyle. It is only fair we stay in Costa Rica today and check into our room with a view at Four Seasons Costa Rica at Peninsula Papagayo.
Nestled on a Pacific coast hillside and overlooking golden sand beaches, Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica at Peninsula Papagayo is your premier eco-adventure destination. Celebrating its 10th-anniversary this year, this luxury resort brings you the ultimate in luxury, ‘pura vida’ lifestyle and of course stunning ocean views.
From a zip-line tour of the jungle to hiking around a live volcano, there is plenty on offer for the adventure seekers while sun seekers can opt to laze by the pool all day long or indulge at he Spa, which features 18 treatment rooms and offers a range of treatments inspired by the healing traditions of Central America.
As part of the 10th anniversary celebrations you can also experience a once-in-a-lifetime dining experience which blends astronomy with gastronomy with a heavenly fusion at Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica at Peninsula Papagayo. The Taste the Stars dining experience in Costa Rica is a multi-course, space-influenced dinner under the stars that showcases molecular gastronomy brought to you by Executive Chef Mario Alcocer, with creative input from astronaut and Costa Rica native Franklin Chang Diaz.
As the resort’s secluded Pacific Coast setting makes it one of the best stargazing locales in the world, after savouring luminescent cocktails, “Taste of the Universe” red snapper sashimi and chocolate mango asteroids, you’ll peer through a high-powered Meade LX200 GPS telescope while an astronomy guide takes you on a stargazing tour of the night sky.
From star-gazing to sea-gazing, if you’re after stunning views of the Costa Rican coast, you’re most certainly spoilt for choice but our top recommendation for those who are after a little romance and privacy would be the three-bedroom Miramar Suite where you can step from your living room to your expansive private terrace for some outdoor dining amid stunning ocean views. A swim in your private infinity pool is just a bonus.
