New sustainable and nature-inspired Six Senses resort captures Costa’s ‘pura vida’ lifestyle
Six Senses has announced its partnership with The Canyon Group to open a new luxury resort in Costa Rica. Six Senses Papagayo will rest on the breathtaking, 2,300-acre Papagayo Peninsula, which ranks as one of the finest mixed-use luxury developments in the world.
In addition to 24 kilometres of pristine coastline and exotic beaches, 70 per cent of the peninsula will be preserved as nature intended. The resort stretches from the 360-degree panorama of the Guanacaste archipelago to a forested beachfront dotted with 41 secluded and generously-sized pool villas. There are also 31 one-of-a-kind residences available for sale to owners interested in an exciting investment opportunity along with full access to a unique resort-life experience.
The Costa Rica resort will offer wellness programming, a beautiful spa, a fitness centre and a variety of activities. An organic farm will reside at the heart of the property and boast fruits, vegetables and herb gardens that inspire the dining menu and spa treatments. The award-winning, London-based architect John Heah will additionally be designing the hotel.
“We are very excited about our first project in Central America,” said Chief Executive Officer Neil Jacobs of Six Senses. “Our own values epitomize Costa Rica’s commitment to sustainability and the essence of Pura Vida (pure life) culture. Everything starts with the question of preserving the natural and cultural heritage of Costa Rica while enhancing social and economic benefits.”
Based in Larkspur, California, The Canyon Group either acquires or develops boutique, ultra-luxury resorts in unique destinations. Among the group’s core portfolio are the famed Amangiri resort in Utah and Amangani resort in Wyoming. They have also teamed up with the Garnier Group, one of Costa Rica’s best known and most reputable development companies, to develop the resort.
The exotic Central American country boasts stretches of beaches, some of the most extensive rainforests in the world, majestic mountains, volcanoes, lakes and more. Approximately 27 per cent of the country is conserved territory and it shelters 6 per cent of the world’s existing biodiversity.
Six Senses Papagayo is located 40 minutes from Liberia International Airport, which offers daily flights to and from just about every major metropolitan hub in the United States, as well as Canada and Latin American countries.
