Meyer Davis Studio to Revamp Four Seasons Resort Costa RicaWill Speros • July 17, 2017
Villa Double Room
Under new ownership led by Gencom, the Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica is set to reopen this December following a $35 million overhaul from New York-based firm Meyer Davis Studio. Located within the 1,400-acre Peninsula Papagayo, the resort property’s refresh will arrive as part of a major revitalization of the destination with the introduction of environmentally conscious luxury and experiential retreats.
Comprising 181 guestrooms, suites, and villas, the resort’s modern design reflects local and global influences. A soothing, natural palette will permeate the resort with rich natural elements, indigenous artwork, and local wood. An expansive, open-air lobby will welcome guests with new luxury retail. Three onsite dining concepts will be reimagined, while the new Añejo bar and Library lounge will debut. The signature restaurant will feature a new showpiece outdoor kitchen, while the signature pool area will be anchored in the natural setting.
Sophisticated and residentially-inspired rooms exude warmth with new furnishings, natural colors, and rich textures and wood. Local elements such as artisan pieces and artwork will infuse a visual connection with the region’s flora and fauna, while connected private balconies or patios offer views of the sea. The resort’s 15 hillside, one-bedroom Canopy suites will feature new plunge pools.
New developments soon to arrive on the peninsula include a Macaw bird sanctuary, a revitalized 180-slip Marina Papagayo, an enhanced Peninsula Papagayo Golf Club, and a new Papagayo Explorer’s Club.
