Private Hilltop Villas in Lush Costa Rican Rainforest

Though it's only 20 minutes from the airport, Xandari Resort & Spa's secluded tropical setting makes it feel far from civilization. Peppered with original works of art, the tranquil retreat spans 40 acres. More than 85 tropical bird species dwell on the estate, and it's not uncommon to go a whole day with only their songs as soundtrack. Taking a cue from the peaceful surroundings, the resort offers neither TVs nor Internet access in its 24 villas. A stay at Xandari is a chance to unplug and unwind amid the relaxing solitude of nature.

Although the resort is designed for the quiet life, there's plenty of activities to keep you busy. You can explore the nature reserve or hike the 4 kilometers of rainforest trails that lead to waterfalls and panoramic views of the valley. The thatched-roof spa pampers guests with massages and facials utilizing products made from local ingredients such as coffee, mint, and raw sugar. The Doka Coffee Mill and the steaming crater at Poas Volcano make for enjoyable day trips.

Each ultra villa offers more than 700 square feet of space and is decorated with bright colors and furniture fashioned from wicker and wood. Outside, a chaise longue on the terrace is the ideal place to unwind while watching a peach-hued sunset or a zeppelin ballet.

Costa Rica: Tropical Rainforests and Relaxed Living

Located in the Central American tether connecting North and South America, Costa Rica—which topped the Happy Planet Index’s worldwide rankings of human well-being and environmental impact—is a country of rainforests and relaxed living. Close to Xandari, the town of Alajuela offers the chance to interact with locals or further explore the country's natural splendor via outdoor activities such as canopy tours and jungle hikes. On the other side of the coin is the capital city, San Jose. Situated about 15 miles from the resort, it's a lively hub for shopping, eating, and partying.

Though Xandari Resort & Spa sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
