Right under the Arenal Volcano, on the outskirts of the town of La Fortuna, sits the Tabacon Grand Spa Thermal Resort, a perfect oasis for those looking for luxury amenities and the ultimate spa experience during their vacation in Costa Rica. Tabacon Resort has won dozens of awards for their exquisite and extensive spa including the World Luxury Spa Awards for Best Luxury Day Spa and Best Luxury Mineral Spring Spa.

The extensive resort has 102 guest rooms, with room options ranging from basic to lavishly luxurious. Each guest room comes with A/C, cable TV, DVD player, hair dryer, iron, safe, minibar, and coffeemaker. Hotel amenities include complimentary WiFi throughout the property and unlimited access to their splendid hot springs. Be sure to make time to indulge in a therapeutic massage, volcanic mud wrap, or coffee exfoliation at their world-renowned Grand Spa.

Los Tucanes Restaurant serves a substantial buffet breakfast and a la carte dinner. Across the way at the hot springs, you can dine for lunch and dinner at Ave de Paraiso without having to drag yourself far from the relaxing waters. For drinks, head to the Caña Brava Lobby Bar or the swim-up Arenal Wet Bar. Both serve lighter dishes like ceviche, nachos, and sandwiches, as well as fresh tropical cocktails. The kitchen is able to handle special diets from gluten-free to kosher, so don’t hesitate to ask.

For a quieter time, escape to the adult-only Shangri La Gardens where you can enjoy six more thermal pools, order drinks and snacks, and have your choice of plenty of places to lounge.
