Xandari Resort & Spa , Costa Rica

A unique creation with tropical colors and contemporary design.

Xandari is set in Tacacorí de Alajuela on a ridge overlooking Costa Rica’s majestic Central Valley in the foothills of Poas Volcano, 1200 meters above sea level. We’re 20 minutes (7 kilometers) from Juan Santamaria International Airport, but a world away.

Guests at Xandari can see many varieties of the indigenous plants of Costa Rica in the gardens and along the trails, along with the wildlife that accompanies them. Plants are labeled on the botanic trails so guests can note the botanical and common names as they experience their tropical beauty on strolls and hikes.


Designed with relaxation in mind, most of the 24 villas feature private terraces with panoramic views and private gardens. All villas have natural cross-ventilation, and with a year-round temperature at Xandari of about 70 degrees Fahrenheit, air conditioning is not required. Daily breakfast included.

Hotel facilities and amenities include: free wireless Internet, restaurant, 3 swimming pools (2 are lap pools), 2 heated outdoor Jacuzzis, spa, laundry service. The Spa Village at Xandari is set in a tropical garden with a breathtaking view of the Central Valley.
