Kasiiya Papagayo Retreat
Set on a rugged stretch of forested Pacific coast, Kasiiya is a tranquil luxury retreat where well-being is the theme.
To say that Kasiiya blends into its stunning natural surroundings is an understatement. Until you arrive you'd be unaware of its presence. Nestled in a unique, protected area of dry forest, there are five luxurious, air-conditioned tented suites, each with private decking and designed to let the daylight flood in while the interior earthy shades are inspired by the surrounding natural environment. A very special feature is your open-air copper bath, where you can luxuriate to the sound of birdsong.
There are three lovely beaches accessible from the property which are perfect for swimming, snorkelling, kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding: the equipment is complimentary. There are also some very good walking trails from the retreat -take a guide, or explore on your own.
The dining area’s large terrace must be one of the best spots in Costa Rica from which to watch the sun go down, cocktail in hand. Kasiiya - which means 'finding your own pace' in Swahili - embraces the concept of well-being, with a yoga deck, 'movement' classes and innovative spa treatments.
