Four Seasons Resort Peninsula Papagayo, Costa Rica has reopened after an extensive renovation project. The resort’s transformation saw the introduction of the Virador Beach Club; a new Wellness Shala; an updated Kids For All Seasons; and a sustainable renovation of the Arnold Palmer Signature golf course.
The newly opened Virador Beach Club is a barefoot luxury venue where guests can indulge in Eastern Mediterranean flavors beachside eatery or lounge on the beach. Adults can also relax by the infinity-edge pool in private cabanas, all set against the backdrop of the Costa Rican coastline.
The Wellness Shala has been designed to provide guests with an opportunity to "unlock inner harmony, align with nature and reconnect with themselves." Guided by the principles of bio-architecture and sustainability, the venue offers a range of guest experiences.
Inspired by the mangroves of Peninsula Papagayo, Kids For All Seasons has undergone a transformation led by Athens-based architect Polyanna Paraskeva of Polyanna & Associates. 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, art and science.
Known for its diverse wildlife, elevation changes and panoramic 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 and make the course more strategic and beautiful. Along with the course renovations, the Golf Pro and Tennis shop will provide a newly designed retail space and lounge area for golfers.
