The property will also have an open-air natural pool, fitness center, pool bar, technology lounge, spa with around 30 “rainforest treatments,” 1,550-square-foot (144-square-meters) conference center, event lawn, golf cart concierge service, café gift shop, juice bar, and a restaurant with bar.
Visitors will be able to walk in the natural trails on property or use one of the bicycles of the resort to explore nearby beaches and the town of Puerto Jimenez.
The new construction, located in the previous location of the Crocodile Bay Resort, is being planned with biologists of the area to ensure the building is in harmony with the environment. Nearby, Crocodile Bay Marina offers sports fishing from a fleet of 40 private boats. Botánika will have certified internal staff giving tours like the Sea Turtle Rescue Tour, surfing, jungle night walks, snorkeling, whale watching, gold panning, and sports fishing.
The interior of the buildings will be designed by DAS Concepts; the LEED Certified architecture will be led by Gensler, and the landscaping will be designed by GCH.
