Hands-down, this is the epitome of luxury done-cool. Nothing more could describe this Papagayo staple. It’s our top of the line when it comes to incentives and corporate meeting locations. Its perfect panoramic-view meeting rooms, fresh cuisine and ridiculously delicious mixologists turn your corporate gathering into an awesome party. Our signature EDGE incentive revolves around arriving to this place by boat and leaving it by land. Our program favorite: room accommodations with ample size and unique hats as amenities for all guests. Amazing for groups and couples alike!
The Andaz, on Costa Rica’s northern Pacific coast, is only 25 minutes from Liberia Costa Rica Airport. The Marina Papagayo on the Bay of Culebra is next door, while Rincón de la Vieja National Park, Monteverde Cloud Forest and Arenal Volcano are close enough for a day out.
All of the hotel’s 153 rooms and 21 luxury suites offer breathtaking views of the bay in an atmosphere of sumptuous eco-chic, with locally designed furnishings including woven textiles, solid woods and unique light fixtures by designer Kenneth Cobanque, who took inspiration from golden oriole; local artisans created artifacts modeled on pre-Columbian lava rock pieces. Other room amenities include a walk-in rain shower, complimentary non-alcoholic minibar, 24-hour room service and a straw hat (also complimentary) to ward off the Guanacaste sun.
Guests can sample the unique flavors at any one of three themed dining areas that highlight Latin American culture through its food. Guests are free to gather around a tree as the locals do, enjoy the latest catch of the day and interact with the chefs. Choices include the open-air Rio Bhongo, the Latin-influenced Chao Pescao, or seafood extraordinaire Ostra.
Spa treatment rooms, nestled in the tree canopy, Culebra Bay and two cascading infinity pools provide a gorgeous and relaxing setting for guests’ relaxation and comfort. An onsite gallery highlights local artists with exhibits and workshops. Hotel staff use a restored purple VW bus to shuttle guests to and from the local beaches. From the moment you enter the inviting open-air lobby, staff are there to offer a one-on-one welcome and a quick, uncomplicated check-in.
