Recently, the Four Seasons Costa Rica debuted an impressive, $35M renovation that cemented its standing as the crown jewel of the 1,400 acres (570 hectares) Peninsula Papagayo on the country’s north Pacific coast. The Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica now features 182 re-imagined guest rooms, suites, and villas; a redesigned lobby with awe-inspiring open-air gathering space and updated retail area; four new culinary concepts featuring locally-sourced cuisine and redesigned spaces; and an enhanced signature pool area with new luxury cabanas, amenities, and programming. New York City-based Meyer Davis Design Studio was instrumental in the renovation and has succeeded in integrating the Resort’s signature indoor-outdoor spaces with the peninsula’s vibrant tropical landscape.
“We are thrilled to welcome travelers from around the world to our contemporary new take on tropical luxury,” says General Manager Michael Mestraud. “With unique Costa Rican warmth and evocative design, our new Resort experience is an unmatched haven for going off the grid or embarking on adventures of a lifetime.”
In addition to the newly redesigned guest accommodations, the resort’s lobby has been renovated to feature inviting, open-air gathering spaces rich with a ‘see-and-be-seen’ vibe. The new design vision weaves together a soothing, natural color palette, rich elements from nature, indigenous art and local wood to reveal an ongoing visual dialogue of discovery. Evoking a fine art gallery, the Four Seasons Costa Rica Resort also features works by local Costa Rican artists and other Latin American artists, giving the high-end destination a look and feel of a fine art gallery.
