Tabacon Grand Spa Thermal Resort 

Overlooking the dramatic Arenal Volcano, the Tabacon is a beautiful resort that blends naturally into the rainforest around it. Sitting comfortably amongst Costa Rica’s largest network of naturally flowing hot springs, Tabacon offers 103 luxurious guest rooms and suites; two restaurants; four bars and a world-class spa.

The rooms have been carefully designed to blur the lines between architecture and nature, bringing you closer to the lush tropical reserve that surrounds you. And when you turn your attention inside, artwork and furnishings by local Costa Rican artisans contribute to the authentic sense of place that Tabacon delivers.

Guests enjoy dozens of hot, mineralized river pools for the duration of their stay, along with exclusive entry into Tabacon’s best kept secret– the Shangri-La Gardens. Hidden away at the top of the hot springs, the gardens are an adults only retreat where you can unwind after a spa treatment, enjoy the best Arenal hot springs or just curl up with a book in the cocoon-shaped cabanas.

The spa itself continues the hotel’s philosophy of blending in with the natural environment. You’ll receive massages and treatments reclined in an outdoor bungalow, listening to the bubbling hot springs and the chirping sounds of the rainforest. Absolute bliss.

Tabacon dining is also an outdoor experience. There are two restaurants to choose from, or if you feel like something really special, you can indulge in a private dinner for two, prepared by a dedicated chef in a romantic, candlelit, open‐air rainforest bungalow.

Needless to say, the hospitality and service you’ll receive from the moment you enter into this paradise is second to none, which is why the hotel has been awarded many times, and is listed as one of the Leading Hotels of the World, and is a Member of the Signature Travel Network.

If you like luxury and nature combined – this is most certainly the place for you.
