Kasiiya Papagayo


Meaning "find your pace" in Swahili, Kasiiya Papagayo is an intimate fully serviced wilderness retreat with just seven suites tucked away in Costa Rica’s verdant Peninsula Papagayo set amongst 123 acres of an exclusive coastal fringed forest straddled by three remote and secluded beaches in the heart of Guanacaste. Boasting a green and dry season, this region is one of only two places in the world that has a dry tropical forest ecosystem. Its concept, designed by Paris-based AW2, celebrates the vibrancy of nature while evolving to meet the needs of today’s environmental enthusiasts and well-heeled travelers.

Eco-luxe at its finest, its respect for the local environment is as second nature as its world-class hospitality. Constructed from all-natural materials, the property’s ethos is deeply rooted in low carbon footprint where the entire resort is solar-powered, and water is obtained by harvesting rainwater. A captivating destination for romantics, nature enthusiasts, families and soul searchers which is home to diverse wildlife from monkeys, dolphins, rare birds and thousands of other species. October to February is known as the best time to spot whales.

Days are spent at your own pace. Guests can wake up to start the day with a private yoga or movement sessions set to the soundtrack of the magpie-jay or enjoy a hearty breakfast at the Beach Cabana. For those looking for a spiritual awakening, embark on a wellness journey with the intuitive in-house healer or challenge your mind and reflexes with tailored unique movement sessions relating back to animals’ habits set in an outdoor jungle gym. At sea, explore nearby vistas by kayak. Nourish your mind, body and soul, with creative local and international dishes where the culinary team sources fresh and organic ingredients from its local and surrounding farms which celebrate the green or dry seasons. At dusk, head to the Sunset Lounge for cocktails and watch the glorious sunset while reminiscing about the day's adventures before heading to a romantic al fresco dinner at the Chef's Table. Offering a bio diverse landscape, Kasiiya welcomes guests beginning summer of 2019 to unwind, recharge and experience a world away from the demands of daily routine and schedules.


Kasiiya offers seven tented suites and two beach front tents spanning across 123 acres of a private coastal fringed forest offering intimate privacy. The suites are thoughtfully spread out amongst the property each offering a unique view of the peninsula’s vista overlooking the private beach or tropical forest which can be enjoyed from the sun beds. Paris-based firm AW2 draws inspiration from the surrounding nature and biodiversity of its environment. The design firm’s diverse noteworthy hotel projects include Silversands in Grenada, Six Senses Con Dao, Phum Baitang in Siem Reap and Amanjena in Marrakech.
