The Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica was inaugurated in 2004 introducing a level of leisure in our country and presenting to the world the Peninsula Papagayo, a magnificent area of 566 hectares (1,400 acres) in the province of Guanacaste. 18 kilometers (11 miles) from the spectacular coast of the Pacific Ocean, seven pristine beaches and one of the few dry tropical forests in the world.
For almost a decade, it was the only high point of the peninsula for stays. Until 2013 with openings like the Peninsula of Andaz (153 rooms), Villa Manzu that counts on 30,000 square feet (8 rooms), and the Mangroove of Autograph Collection, launched the area running as the face of the country’s tourist revival.
Four Seasons will revitalize the peninsula when it reopens on December 4 after an investment of $ 35 million. The redesign, led by New York Meyer Davis Studios, will be marketed in the resort’s tropical décor for a subdued palette that replicates the natural textures and materials of the surrounding environment.

Imposing rattan furnishings, natural wood surfaces, and floor-to-ceiling windows will fill your 181 rooms, suites, and villas, while 15 Canopy suites will have new pools. The hotel’s five restaurants, including Pesce, its elegant Italian restaurant, and Café del Mar, the all-day Mediterranean restaurant, will focus on organic produce from the region and the new Añejo bar and library lounge will serve handmade rum and liqueurs.
The renovation is taking place as improvements are being made to the island’s master development led by Gencom, a Miami-based developer that invests more than $100 million in modernizing existing infrastructure, including its field 18-hole golf designed by Arnold Palmer.
As the addition of some new services; Manuel Ardon, director of operations of Península Papagayo, stated that the idea is to create a resemblance of the country itself in the minds of travelers.
“The improvements are necessary not only for Costa Rica’s burgeoning tourism industry but also for the country’s position as a leader in preserving the native landscape and local culture,”
The reopening of the “Four Seasons” will be followed shortly by the introduction of an end-to-end network of more than eight miles of nature trails and a macaw sanctuary to rehabilitate the species to the area and serve as an educational center together with the restoration of its Marina Papagayo of 180 sections. One of the two large yacht reconnaissance ports in Latin America, which will include a new restaurant and lounge, gourmet grocery market and new yacht charter excursions. Despite this and more progress to follow, visitors do not have to worry about over development as 70% of the land must remain intact.
