About Andaz Peninsula Papagayo
Along the shores where the Gulf of Papagayo greets the azure waters of Culebra Bay lies Andaz Peninsula Papagayo. A feeling of Costa Rica’s pura vida (pure life) philosophy radiates throughout the 28-acre beachfront resort, which presents a spectacular tropical environment, stimulating activities by land and sea, and a marvelous architectural esthetic. Andaz, meaning “personal style” in Hindi, stays true to its name as it integrates cocoon- and shell-shaped buildings evocative of the flora and fauna indigenous to the peninsula; its spa design takes an alluring approach as well. The 11,000-square-foot Onda Spa sits tucked away amidst a forest, where signature holistic treatments are performed in an intimate setting against the ever-present sounds of howler monkeys, exotic birds, and rhythmic waves that inspire energy and revitalization.
