The Andaz Peninsula Papagayo Resort, [a Hyatt property] is one of Central America’s most exciting new hotels on the stunning Papagayo Peninsula in the northern Pacific coast of Costa Rica. An original and innovative hideaway, designed by Costa Rican architect Ronald Zurcher. Andaz Papagayo showcases designs in my opinion that could change the face of modern Costa Rican architecture as it taps into mother nature. As Zurcher says, “Costa Rica is known for its peace-loving attitude and I felt tapping into Mother Nature’s energy was the best way to connect the resort with the overall vibe of the country.”
Located adjacent to Marina Papagayo and overlooking the Bay of Culebra on 28-acres of oceanfront. Andaz Papagayo is pure luxurious and a great retreat featuring 153 guest-rooms including 21 luxury suites. For those with true relaxation in mind, try the posh 11,000 square-foot spa featuring nine treatment rooms or if you want an adventure, take a beautiful hike to the Rio Celeste.
Troy Alexander Project was a guest and offers our opinion. It felt like a truly breathtaking experience, we immediately loved the design and architecture. The free-flowing environment keeps the Costa Rican ‘Pura Vida’ [pure life] attitude, which the hotel in my opinion abides to it. Andaz Papagayo compliments the philosophy with no desks at check-in, no red tape and thus, no stress for this new hotel experience. It will join nine Andaz hotels that are open around the world, in markets such as New York, California and Georgia in the United States, Amsterdam and London in Europe and Shanghai in China.
