The Sanctuary Resort & SpaPlaya Azul, Costa Rica
Extraordinary and eco-friendly, The Sanctuary Resort & Spa is a place to go to remedy the stresses of everyday life. Located in Playa Azul, this seaside Costa Rica resort features a collection of rooms, villas and cottages that captures the essence of tropical flavor through its design and carefree philosophy. Discover spacious accommodations with eye-popping hues and a choice of single or multiple bedrooms. Traveling families may want to consider a stay in the resort's Villa de Los Reyes, a sprawling 5000-square-foot Mediterranean-style estate with a gourmet kitchen, four bedrooms and an equal number of baths - plus a private rooftop terrace with gourmet barbeque and built-in lounge furniture.
Activities at The Sanctuary Resort & Spa can be as simple as strolling from your front door to the beach, or - for the more rigorously inclined - a hike along winding pathways that lead to the exotic Guanacaste regional forests. Tranquility is a contagious state of mind at the resort, and guests are often found swaying in hammocks while listening to monkeys glide through the treetops. Lounging by the infinity-edge pool is another favorite pastime, as is sipping hand-pressed Costa Rican coffee from the comfortable confines of your roomy porch. The resort offers a pair of sumptuous restaurants that further promotes a sense of calm with open-air settings. Choose to dine à la carte or simplify your stay with an all-inclusive escape. The day slowly gives way to night where a star-filled sky sets the stage for a fabulous evening. A beach bonfire and glass of wine is just one of many ways in which to celebrate the transition.
