Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica at Peninsula Papagayo has announced a multimillion-dollar enhancement project. The transformation will include the addition of Virador Beach Club; Wellness Shala; enhanced Kids For All Seasons; and sustainability-focused renovation of Arnold Palmer Signature Golf course. The resort will temporarily pause operations from August to October this year. Guests can book their getaway starting November 1, 2023.
Virador Beach Club will include an oceanside eatery and lounge focused on Mediterranean flavors, while adults can expect to enjoy an infinity-edge pool and private cabanas.
For the Wellness Shala, Luis Alejandro Cuesta and Javier Creuheras, founders of Arquitectura Mixta, focus on bio-architecture and work with local artisans to build a sustainable structure. Located high on the hills at a distance from the resort, the Wellness Shala will act as a bridge between modern wellness practices and traditional rituals.
Kids For All Seasons will undergo a complete transformation led by Polyanna Paraskeva of Polyanna & Associates. The Athens-based architect has created functional learning spaces for children throughout Europe and is making her Latin America debut with Four Seasons Resort Peninsula Papagayo. The design includes low-lying platforms that children can crawl or walk on, imitating the root system of the mangroves surrounding the resort. Furnishings are made from ecologically sustainable materials in bright colors that invite children to play and explore. Movable, flexible walls create a fluid environment incorporating technology, arts and science.
Known for its diverse wildlife, dramatic elevation changes and ocean vistas, the Ocean Course at Peninsula Papagayo is an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary with sustainability at its forefront. The 18-hole, par-72 Arnold Palmer Signature course and driving range is concluding a renovation that includes a precision irrigation system that will reduce water usage by 20 percent. Further improvements consist of more teeing area and 12 acres of native vegetation with less bunkering to improve playability. Along with the course renovations, the Golf Pro and Tennis shop will provide a newly designed retail space and lounge area for golfers.
