Tabacon Hot Springs – Redefined the Spa Experience

Imagine soaking in bubbling thermal springs under the misty veil of a waterfall, suddenly an exotic bright plumed bird calls from the depths of the surrounding lush rainforest and the Arenal volcano steams and spits on the horizon. This is South America and this is the Tabacon Hot Springs, Costa Rica.

A Secret Garden of Sheer Bliss

Push back the oversized palms and find the Garden of Eden with tranquil rippling pools, buzzing hummingbirds, exotic flowers in bloom and the whisper of rich volcanic springs. The thermal springs are the perfect way to start a journey indulging in the natural expression of energy from Mother Earth, sinking into the steamy springs the minerals seem to caress the skin, the mind unwinds and the pulse of the waterfall provides a soft melody for meditation. The scent of red ginger, creamy coconut and gentle chenille permeate the air.

Blending Nature with Beauty

The dedicated approach to blending nature with joy and beauty follows us into the Grand Spa, here open air bungalows hide behind the bursting flora of the gardens and the waterfalls fed by the power of the volcano, smoke and steam. Start with an evocative four hands massage to work every knot from your body or embrace the exotic with a Lomi Lomi or rich aromatherapy treatment.

Guacamole Made Tableside

After hours of indulging it’s time to replenish with fine food in the calming oasis of the Ave del Paraíso restaurant. The verandah opens beautifully to soak up the dappled sunlight and offer unrivalled views over the roof of the lush gardens. Sip a beading cold drink and order something fresh with a hint of zest as your waiter makes guacamole on the table for you to enjoy.
