Tabacon Grand Spa opens new Shangri-La Gardens and Wellness Programme

The Tabacon Grand Spa Thermal Resort, located in the base of Costa Rica’s Arenal Volcano, has introduced guests to their new Shangri-La Gardens, specially designed to function as a refuge, tucked away from the outside world. The new gardens will allow visitors to relax and find inner-peace during their Costa Rica holidays. The Oriental-inspired gardens feature six natural volcano-heated river pools and a thermal waterfall.

New chaise lounge furnishings embellish the natural setting, lit by torches. Asian and Latin tapas, as well as specialty cocktails and martinis are served by butlers in the gardens. By using only natural springs, rivers and waterfalls, Tabacon wishes to preserve the country’s natural resources. Based on this principle, the resort has received the prestigious Luxury Eco Certification Standard (LECS) from Sustainable Tourism International.

This wonderful spa resort, member of the Leading Hotels of the World, The Leading Spas of the World and Healing Hotels of the World, is considered one of the most luxurious Costa Rica hotels. The resort offers a total of 114 luxury rooms, a three-unit Temazcal and 11 outdoor treatment bungalows. Its rain forest environment includes natural hot spring pools, natural lagoons, natural waterfalls and thermal river pools, as well as exotic gardens.

In addition to the new Shangri-La gardens and standing by their well-being and green-living code, Tabacon has just launched a new Lifestyle & Wellness Programme. Their new concept of healing, relaxing and well-being incorporates Ayurveda principles, healthful education and personal and nutritional sustainability. Specialised therapists provide visitors with pampering volcanic mud wraps, and guide their stress and tensions away through a series of Watsu stretches in outdoor thermal pools. If guests are in search of nothing but R&R, the Lifestyle & Wellness Programme includes two of the resort’s 11 three-treatment spa packages.

The Wellness Programme also offers a great variety of exercises and nutritional feasts for visitors who look for a more active approach to wellness. Guests wishing to spend their relaxing holidays in Costa Rica exploring the magnificent surroundings of the rainforest setting can take one of the resorts nature tours. Walking and bike trails are among some of the most popular activities, as well as zip-lining, canyoning and hiking to the volcano. If visitors prefer exercising indoors, they can participate in a group yoga class or strengthen their muscles with a private training session.

As for nutrition, the resort offers an Ayurvedic diet which prioritises fuelling the body with healthy but delicious foods. At $2,900 per person for 7 days (based on double occupancy), this unique experience also gives guests the opportunity to learn tricks and cooking techniques from local Ayurvedic chefs. Besides enjoying internationally inspired daily breakfast and lunch, guests spending their Costa Rica holidays at Tabacon can gain expertise in balanced diets, and help the chef create a menu for an intimate bungalow dinner celebration.
