About Sibö Rainforest Spa & Retreat at Los Suenos Marriott Ocean & Golf Resort
The beachfront Sibö Rainforest Spa & Retreat at Los Suenos Marriott Ocean & Golf Resort, located one hour and forty five minutes from the San José International Airport, is surrounded by more than 1,000 acres of brilliant tropical rain forest in the coastal town of Playa Herradura, known for its black-sand beaches and turquoise waters. With an on-site casino and a 250-slip marina, the Spanish colonial-style resort has garnered accolades such as Travel & Leisure's "World's Best" award.
Following a Costa Rican-inspired treatment at the Sibö Rainforest Spa & Retreat, guests can take a dip in the palm tree-lined outdoor pool or enjoy a cocktail at its swim-up bar. Golfers can enjoy a round on the 18-hole, par-72 course, playing to a crowd of monkeys and macaws residing in the bordering ecological setting.
A medley of dining options is available, and meeting space totals more than 6,000 square feet.

Taking its name from the Cabecar Indians, Costa Rica's largest Indian tribe, the Sibö Rainforest Spa & Retreat features a menu of services inspired by ancient indigenous rituals. The all-organic menu utilizes extracts from the surrounding area such as exotic plants, fruits, and rainwater, as well as products from the Eminence Organics line.
Offerings include massages, body scrubs and wraps, facials, mani/pedi services, and hydrotherapy treatments. Guests can also indulge in "Retreats from the Tropical Forest," such as the Tulu ritual, which combines a mini-facial, black forest mud body treatment, and indigo bath, or the Rain treatment, a 110-minute healing ritual that includes an herbal clay facial, cellulite body treatment, Vichy shower, and turquoise bath.
The 12,500-square-foot spa has 11 treatment rooms, including a couple's suite with a private terrace. Guests can complement their spa experience with time in the steam room, sauna, or whirlpool.
