Imagine experiencing a rejuvenating massage on a picturesque sandy beach. Lapping waves wash away tensions in your body as warming rays of dappled sunlight gently filter through the trees to caress your skin. Costa Rica is famous for being a place where you can reconnect with nature, but it’s also a place that encourages you to recharge. So, after spending time hiking through the rainforest or surfing off the spectacular coastline, you’ll be pleased to know that there are spa treatments in Guanacaste waiting for you at the other side. Read on to explore the best options closest to our vacation properties at Papagayo Luxury.
Prieta Beach Club
Luxuriate in nature at Prieta Beach Club, just a few minutes away from your luxury villa rental. Recent renovations to the indulgent spa spaces bring a special touch of Pura Vida to each treatment room, steam room, sauna and outdoor hot and cold pools. Breathtaking spa bungalows are also coming soon to the venue, designed to bring the outside in. Take the time to reconnect with your inner balance with their signature Aroma-Prieta massage, restoring your wellbeing with a personalized blend of aromatic essences. Maximize your session with a softening exfoliation pre-treatment, preparing the skin for ultimate relaxation with an organic coconut oil.
Wellbeing takes on a holistic flavor at the nearby Four Seasons, with bespoke therapies and experiences to help you find harmony with your body, social connections and inner emotions. Wellness advocates are on hand at the resort to help you integrate learnings from the sessions into your everyday life, resulting in tangible, positive changes that you can take home with you. Kids and teens can also join in with a dedicated menu of nail, facial and hair offerings. Embrace their ethos with a locally-sourced Pacific Clarifying Scrub. Created using a natural blend of rice, honey and ground shells, the scrub has a soothing and nourishing effect, designed to leave your skin feeling luminous, smooth and incredibly hydrated.
Onda at Hyatt Andaz
Set above the calming waters of Culebra Bay, Onda promises to bring you inspiring spaces and healing experiences. Each offering taps into the wisdom of Guanacaste’s Chorotegan ancestors, while cocooning you with the delicious canopies of the region’s forests. There are also a range of scheduled activities and classes available each day, including everything from yoga and meditation to sound healing and fitness. We love their pacific body massages, paying homage to the ocean as the ultimate symbol of energy and life. Marine algae and rich muds create a firming blend of vitamins and amino acids to deeply cleanse and awaken the skin.
In-home spa treatments
Immerse yourself in ultimate luxury with our range of custom in-home spa treatments in Guanacaste Costa Rica. Our dedicated concierge team can arrange for experienced spa-quality therapists to come and recreate a relaxing experience for you, without you having to leave your villa. Each session is inspired by the restorative properties of local ingredients. Refresh and revive your skin with one of our full body wraps, using either chocolate, aloe vera, cucumber or tropical fruits depending on your physiological needs. If the younger ones in your party are eager to join in, we even offer a children’s menu of massages, manicures and pedicures for those aged between 5 and 12 years. Elevate your experience to the next level with a massage on the beach, letting the sound of the waves melt away built-up stress.
El Mangroove at Marriott
If you’re happy to venture a little further, the El Mangroove spa sanctuary is a half hour drive away. Surrounded by the beautiful forests and mangroves that the region is famous for, sessions here focus on creating a welcoming environment with outdoor relaxation terraces, massage decks and hot steam rooms. The serene atmosphere is complimented with a range of Costa Rican-inspired treatments that utilize natural elements. Therapeutic volcanic massages are a great example of this: the warm stones encourage your muscles to open and relax to boost circulation and deep muscular release. The result? Profound relaxation that re-energizes you for the season ahead.
