Hotel Description

It’s no accident that Costa Rica is a hotbed of eco-resorts, with its volcanic highlands nourishing an extensive network of hot springs. And at a time when everyone with a recycling bin is boasting about green hospitality, it’s refreshing to discover a five-star that coexists so peacefully with its natural setting. Situated at the base of Costa Rica’s famous Arenal volcano, the Tabacon Grand Spa Thermal Resort is a wellness paradise that doesn’t have to fake it.

The 102 guest rooms are equipped with modern amenities and decorated with an understated array of locally handcrafted furniture, so you don’t have to rush off after your day at the spa is finished. Some rooms feature private terraces and jacuzzis if you’d rather continue your advanced relaxation in private. In-room meals are available, too, but if you feel like venturing out, two restaurants offer a variety of local specialties and international dishes.

The “grand” part of the name might refer to the resort, or it might refer to the spa. Either way it’s not inaccurate. Here, the Temezcal — a traditional sweat bath designed to purify and detoxify — is guided by a resident shaman, surrounded by the rainforest and thermal river pools; a serious pampering ritual for the spiritually inclined. If less intense treatments are more your speed, or if you simply desire a massage and a cocktail, Tabacon isn’t one to judge. You’ll find whatever you’re looking for among the 11 open-air bungalows.

How to get there:

Tabacon Grand Spa Thermal Resort is located approximately three hours' drive from San Jose. Please contact customerservice@tablethotels.com to arrange airport transfers.
