TABACON THERMAL RESORT & SPA - Nantipa - Santa Teresa Costa Rica, Nicoya Peninsula Skip to content


(La Fortuna, Costa Rica – December 01, 2022) Tabacón Thermal Resort & Spa in La Fortuna, Costa Rica, has debuted 14 renovated rooms and suites. Ever mindful of its environmental impact, Tabacón has worked within its existing footprint to reimagine eight Honeymoon Suites and six Rainforest Rooms.

Led by Costa Rican architect Adriana Cruz, the rooms have been designed in a contemporary tropical style that take a reverse biophilic approach with a small footprint. Within the rooms guests remain connected with nature through subtle nods to their lush rainforest surroundings. The locally made furniture is crafted from native Pacific cedar wood ideal for La Fortuna’s humid climate. The artwork was commissioned from a Costa Rican watercolor artist who created a custom design with colorful flourishes on aluminum to ensure longer duration of the pieces. Floors contain pieces of natural stone in harmony with the area.

The pared back and peaceful palette of the interiors draws guests to the natural wonders outside. The rooms all have floor to ceiling windows that open out onto private terraces or balconies with views of the rainforest (Rainforest Rooms) and the Arenal Volcano (Honeymoon Suites). The Honeymoon Suites’ expanded terraces now accommodate either a plunge pool made from Guatemalan Verde Tical marble or a freestanding bathtub, both of which are fed by naturally hot spring water. Guests enjoying this in-room balneotherapy do so surrounded by native landscaping and a living wall of plants sourced from the Tabacon gardens, as well as the immersive sights and sounds of the rainforest.

The Rainforest Rooms and Honeymoon Suite has been designated as an adult’s only experience to provide our guests a more intimate ambience for these specific room types.

Guests in the renovated rooms and suites can also enjoy Tabacón’ s unique thermal river experience. Comprising 18 pools that range in temperature from 75-105 degrees it is the largest network of naturally occurring hot springs in Costa Rica. The hot springs are also home to the adults-only Shangri-La Gardens and the resort’s world-class Spa featuring culturally embedded treatments. The resort’s variety of bars and restaurants offer everything from fine-dining to light bites, including the Ephemeral Table, a private six-course dinner in a candlelit open-air bungalow.

Andrey Gomez, General Manager at Tabacón says: “It is a privilege that my first act as General Manager at Tabacón has been to oversee the reimagining of these iconic suites, and to launch a completely new product and experience for both new and returning guests. Being able to offer private pools and bathtubs with volcano views that are fed and heated naturally by our own hot springs is a unique experience in La Fortuna. We continue to evolve the luxury experience while staying true to our mission that builds on our heritage – providing for our community and protecting our environment.”

Prices for the new rooms start from US $520+tax per night for a Rainforest Room, $620+tax per night for a Honeymoon Suite and $805+tax per night for a Honeymoon Suite with plunge pools.
