Editorial review:

This recently renovated hotel received praise for its breathtaking view of Arenal Volcano and its calming hot springs and spa. Hydrotherapy and volcanic mud treatments are offered.

Overview

Tabacón Grand Spa Thermal Resort is a five-star carbon neutral resort located in Costa Rica's northern region, at the base of the majestic Arenal Volcano, in the middle of the tropical rainforest. A member of The Leading Hotels of the World and Healing Hotels of the World, Tabacón provides luxurious accommodations, services and amenities in a picture-perfect natural setting. The resort’s unique thermal springs emerge from the volcanic earth, cascading to form waterfalls, streams, tranquil pools and ponds surrounded by lush tropical gardens which create an oasis of peace. Inside the gardens is the resort’s Grand Spa, member of The Leading Spas of the World, which combines a beautiful location with a singular spa experience. Tabacón’s new Shangri-La Gardens is a relaxing, romantic oasis for adults.

Certified carbon neutral since May 2009, awarded Luxury Eco Certification (second resort in the world) and the first hotel in the world to receive the Seven Stars and Stripes “Green World Award,” Tabacón is at the forefront of Costa Rica’s sustainability efforts. The resort has been cited as one of the “Best Resorts in Central and South America” in Travel + Leisure’s “World’s Best Awards.” Similarly, the Grand Spa has been named one of the “Top Hotel Spas in Latin America” by Travel + Leisure, one of the “best spas” by Spa Magazine and Luxury SpaFinder; and one of the world’s top eco-spas by Concierge.com. Highlights include a three-unit Temazcal, the only one in Central and Latin America; 11 outdoor treatment bungalows (with Jacuzzis) and a menu of indigenous treatments including Watsu in outdoor thermal pools and volcanic mud wraps.

Surrounded by the energy of the live Arenal volcano, the resort also offers a new Lifestyle & Wellness program where guests can consult with a nutritionist and spa expert to develop a healthy living plan and assist with weight management and education based on the principles of Ayurveda. The 102-room resort has updated accommodations and swimming pool areas, and an enticing mix of Ayurvedic, Costa Rican and international cuisine. The signature Gala Dinner is served in a private rainforest bungalow with private chef and server. Nearby activities include nature tours, hanging bridges, ziplining, canyoning, and hiking to the volcano.
