Xandari Resort is set within a 40-acre coffee and fruit plantation on a high ridge overlooking Costa Rica’s Central Valley, one of the most scenic coffee-growing regions in the country. Located in Tacacori, a rural village in the foothills of Poas Volcano, the property is just 20 minutes from San Jose's international airport, yet a serene world away. Xandari's architects envisioned a paradise reflecting the natural beauty of Costa Rica and achieved it in strides. The resort's private forest reserve, with five waterfalls, a year-round river and more than two miles of scenic trails through the fruit orchards for birdwatching, offers the natural experience guests seek on a visit to Costa Rica. Landscaped gardens, an orchid house and working farm all provide additional tropical greenery.
Twenty-four villas are individually decorated with bright tropical colors and contemporary flair and set within lush foliage. Each has a private terrace with spectacular views, a bar and kitchen, and either one king or two full beds. Organic fruits, vegetables and herbs from the plantation’s gardens complement Xandari’s health-conscious specialty dishes in the outstanding restaurant on site. The fabulous spa provides ample opportunity to unwind and absorb the surrounding nature, with treatments offered in five private, palm-thatched jalapas, each with its own hot tub and massage table in full view of the Central Valley.
Together, Natural Habitat Adventures and World Wildlife Fund have teamed up to arrange nearly a hundred nature travel experiences around the planet, while helping to protect the magnificent places we visit and their wild inhabitants.
