Xandari Resort, Alajuela

Choose Xanadari Resort as part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Costa Rica and you’ll soon realise it’s a destination within itself.

This luxury resort hotel and spa has an enviable reputation for enveloping you in an experience so totally satisfying that you may never want to step outside its elegant environs – even to explore the nearby Poas Volcano or embark on a fascinating tour of a local coffee plantation.

Instead you’ll find yourself strolling through miles of botanic garden trails, discovering dramatic waterfalls and fragrant orchid houses. Or you’ll bathe in a sunset pool with stunning views over the Central Valley. Or indulge yourself in a sublimely elegant spa. Or dine in an open restaurant on organic produce grown in Xandari’s own orchards and gardens…
