Florblanca Resort

Florblanca Resort is an oasis of luxury nestled in the jungle and in front of Playa Santa Teresa, a long-stretching beach in the Nicoya Peninsula. Previously ranked #1 Luxury Hotel in Central America by TripAdvisor, this natural retreat enriches mind, body and soul. With organic fine dining, award-winning spa, beachfront access, and luxurious yet earthy accommodations – it is the perfect hotel for anyone looking for an off-the-beaten-path experience with 5-star amenities and service.

Florblanca is an eco-chic, boutique hotel with only 10 villas (including a Honeymoon Villa) and a more casual, 3-bedroom Surf House. There are seven one-bedroom and three two-bedroom villas, each featuring a spacious open-air living room with hand-made Costa Rican hammock for two, garden setting bathroom, and an air conditioned bedroom with king bed. The second bedroom in the two-bedroom villas has two twin beds and a daybed. Superior Villas differ from Deluxe Villas by their view – Deluxe Villas offer direct beach views while Superior Villas have jungle/garden views. The Honeymoon House is the most private option and closest to the ocean. It is a 2-story villa featuring a beachside palapa for napping, a Jacuzzi in the master bath perfectly positioned above the Pacific surf, and a private sun terrace on the top level. The 3-bedroom Surf House has a more casual, rustic ambiance and features two rooms with two twin beds, third room with king bed, kitchenette, terrace with hammocks, and front-door ocean views/access.

With no shortage of opportunities to relax, indulge, and adventure – you don’t “stay” at Florblanca Resort, you “experience” Florblanca. Their “hook to fork” and “farm to table” dining experience at Nectar Restaurant will have you looking forward to every meal. Nearly all the produce is locally and organically sourced and then hand-made in house with a mix of Latin, Mediterranean, and Asian techniques. Breakfast is included with your stay while lunch, tapas, and dinner are served in their open-air restaurant. You can even dine in your room or pool-side in their free-form pool surrounded by lush, tropical jungle. Visiting the Spa Bambu is a must when experiencing Florblanca. Its dreamy ambiance and therapeutic, natural treatments has awarded Spa Bambu with a Traveler Spa Award by Conde Nast. For those looking for the full wellness experience, make sure to sign-up for yoga or pilates in Florblanca’s open-air yoga studio. During the day enjoy complimentary use of beach cruisers, surf boards, boogie boards, and snorkel gear. At the end of the day, make sure to enjoy the most unbelievable, vibrant sunsets while strolling for miles up and down the beach.
