Overview

If you think Costa Rica is all about its beaches, think again. Hacienda AltaGracia, the first Auberge resort in Central America, is tucked high among the mountains of Pérez Zeledon -- one of the last unexplored areas in southern Costa Rica. Named on Condé Nast Traveler’s Hot list for 2016, this one-of-a-kind hotel is sure to provide travelers with a luxurious vacation in the midst of nature. Guest rooms are spacious and all have terraces that overlook the mountains or San Isidro Valley.  

Activities are endless at this luxury resort. Spend the day being pampered in the spa, which at 20,000 square feet, is the largest in Central America. The resort has its own 28-stable equestrian center, where guests can take a tour, and hop on a horse for a ride through the mountains and rain forest.The hotel also offers ultralight aircraft tours in which guests sit back while an expert pilot takes off from the resort’s own landing strip, and glides high in the sky offering aerial views of the surrounding area. Refresh after a day of exploration in either the indoor or outdoor pool and hot tub. The outdoor pool also offers those great mountain views.

The resort has three dining options on property -- Ambar, La Cantina and El Bistro -- which all embrace a farm-to-table concept inspired by locally sourced ingredients. From the spacious suites and multiple dining options to the endless activities, this Auberge resort in the heart of nature exudes luxury and is sure to leave travelers relaxed and refreshed.

From the press:
  • "...this 864-acre property—the first Auberge Resort in Central America—brings glamor and luxury to an otherwise rugged terrain" -- (Conde Nast Traveler)
  • "Grants new access to a relatively unknown region of Costa Rica" -- (Travel + Leisure)

The place was more than we expected. The landscape is beautiful, view to the mountains from every corner. The staff is wonderful and remembers your name! It’s not often that you find a place that has a staff that really wants to make your stay memorable. Our casita was large and beautiful; comfortable bed, great linens, large bathroom and the shower. And the view was wonderful! The property is over 300 acres so lot of room to walk around and not get crowed by other guests. We usually take either city or beach vacations and this was our first mountain stay. The views and the greenery has a magical feel; it gave us better relaxation than at the beach. This vacation was probably our best one. The entire staff from concierge, restaurant staff, golf cart drivers to staff in the spa treated us with true enthusiasm, professionalism and warmth. They were always smiling as were we.

There were so many wonderful things about the experience. The view of the valley was amazing from the pools, restaurants and my room. The staff were genuinely friendly. I was traveling alone, and they were attentive and provided many ideas on how to enjoy my time.

The greeting when I arrived from Stephen as well as a personal greeting from the manager, made me feel that I was a valued guest. I received a refreshing cold towel and a passionfruit juice to relax with while we went over my check in. This feeling of being a valued guest continued throughout my stay from all of the staff. Stephen and Deandra were especially helpful with planning my activities. Juan Diego and Yendra were wonderful guides and all of the staff provided exceptional service throughout my stay.
