Why We Love It

  • At 20,000 square feet, its spa is the largest in Central America and includes its own hydrotherapy centre
  • Casita private dining can be arranged for families or small gatherings


Hacienda AltaGracia, the first Auberge resort in Central America, is tucked high among the mountains of Pérez Zeledón -- a relatively unexplored part of southern Costa Rica.

This luxury resort boasts numerous activities (supplements apply) including a spa and its own 28-stable equestrian centre, where guests can take a tour and hop on a horse for a ride through the mountains and rainforest. The hotel also offers ultralight aircraft tours departing from its own landing strip -- you can sit back and take in the views as the pilot flies you over the surrounding countryside. After a day of exploration, you can refresh in either the indoor or outdoor pool and hot tub. The outdoor pool also offers mountain views. 

Dining options including Ambar, La Cantina and El Bistro, which all embrace a farm-to-fork concept and use locally sourced ingredients. 

Guest rooms are spacious and all have terraces that overlook the mountains or San Isidro Valley. Wi-Fi is free.

This place not only met my expectations, it far exceeded them. I extended my stay by 3 days, I didn’t want to leave. The gracious, sincere staff, the views, fresh ingredients, the massive-upscale rooms, the options of activities are beyond all other resorts. I also liked that I never felt like any services were pushed on me like buying photos during activities (free, btw) to spa services (never tried to sell me products). I felt like I was at someone’s home and I was the only VIP guest.

Too many compliments to list. A lot of the magic that happens here just can’t be duplicated. It’s sincere service in a truly special, one-of-kind, jewel of a property.
