River bath at Hacienda AltaGracia

A New Generation Wellness & Adventure Retreat for the Soul

"A well-being destination like no one has ever seen before, THE WELL at Hacienda AltaGracia invites guests to reset, rewind, and recharge while rekindling each individual's connection to Pachamama--Mother Earth." ~Glancer Magazine, March 2022

Is This the Wellness Escape We All Need Right Now?

"The centerpiece is Casa de Agua, the beating heart of THE WELL at Hacienda AltaGracia, and—like THE WELL’s Manhattan HQ and offshoot at Mayflower Inn & Spa, Auberge Resorts Collection in Connecticut—it is beautifully, and thoughtfully, designed. The indoor pool is surrounded by glass and greenery, creating the effect that you’re swimming in a greenhouse, and the natural crystal and marble elements throughout the space feel both grounding and elevated." ~ Town and Country, March 18, 2022

The New Costa Rica Resort Bound for Insta-Fame

"The luxe, one-in-a-lifetime five-star Auberge Resorts Collection property in Pérez Zeledón calls itself “an escape for those seeking total well-being and unbridled adventure” and just opened last November 2021. It already counts Emma Roberts among its fans (“the most magnificent setting, the kindest people, the most mind-blowing experiences,” she said in an Instagram caption). There are no food restrictions — in fact, all food expenses are included in the nightly rate and you can purchase alcohol at any time with no shade." ~ The Zoe Report, March 8, 2022

The Best Wellness Getaways In North America For Valentine’s Day And Beyond

"Beloved New York City wellness institution The Well has teamed up with Auberge Resorts for a unique destination sure to impress the wellness-lover in your life. Set on 180 acres of lush tropical rainforest, guests connect to nature through holistic programming that blends Eastern and Western healing rituals. From hydrotherapy in the heated jet pool to an aromatherapy steam room to the infrared sauna, there are a wide variety of treatments on offer, each one beginning with a purifying herbal exfoliation." ~ Forbes, February 10, 2022

Healthy, Wealthy, and Wise

"Situated about 95 miles south of San José, and nestled into the foothills of the Talamanca Mountains, the resort’s 50 villa-style casitas are scattered across 864 tropical acres, which include a “sustainable” coffee plantation, 28 horse stables, and an organic garden that provides ingredients for AltaGracia’s five restaurants. In some ways, it feels more like a new, Utopian colony—a post-coronavirus Eden—than it does a hotel." ~ Airmail, February 2022

Wine pouring into glass

7 Resorts Around the World Where Wine and Wellness are the Focus

"The Hacienda’s food and beverage program is built to bring guests closer to nature by working intimately with local farms and food makers. So, for cocktails, this means building recipes around produce harvested near or on the property. And the beer was specifically crafted in partnership with local brewery Jungle Brew, who incorporated passionfruit from the resort’s farm into this exclusive lager. For wine, there is a preference for organic and biodynamic production such as Cono Sur from Chile and a Malbec from Argentina’s Bodega Noemia." ~ Wine Enthusiast, February 2022

Six of the Best Luxury Eco-Lodges in Costa Rica

"Reopened in 2021 after a major overhaul, Hacienda AltaGracia is a sprawling estate set amid 180 acres. With sensational views across the surrounding valleys, its two restaurants use almost exclusively Costa Rican produce. While their coffee is currently gathered from nearby fincas, 7,000 coffee trees have also been planted around the property with the aim of harvesting by 2025. Each of the 50 villas offers plenty of space and privacy, while vehicle transport is organised by texting the compás (a sort of personal butler)." ~ National Geographic, February 2022

Private plunge pool

Best of 2021

"The 50-casita retreat set on 180 acres in Costa Rica's Talamanca Mountains range blends in with its verdant landscape. Inharmony with the lush pergolas and private casita plunge pools is an outpost of the holistic wellness spa THE WELL, for which the resort's designer, New York-based Nina Gotlieb, played with local Guanacaste wood, sisal, and numerous plants." ~ Hospitality Design, January 2022

Where to See the Wildlife and Enjoy the High Life

"The hotel was not new, but its renovation was so total that it may as well have been. I was soon swapping my car for a golf buggy driven by an earnest “compa”, whose role lay somewhere between bellboy and butler and from whom I could order lifts around the property via WhatsApp." ~ The Times UK, January 2022

Six New Hotels That Deserve a Long Trip This Winter

"Auberge Resorts recently opened its first hotel in Costa Rica, on a 52-hectare site in the tropical forests of the Talamanca mountain range , in the southeast of the country. The tropical birds that inhabit the area are just one of its many attractions, along with the coffee plantations, the routes through the jungle, the horse stables and the nearby river , to bathe in the middle of nature." ~ Condé Nast Traveler, January 2022

Hacienda AltaGracia Costa Rica: a Rich New Rainforest Stay

"The property does not claim to have unbeatable eco-credentials, but there are no plastic bottles and the natural toiletries are refilled, rather than replaced. Nor are there coffee pods. Instead, guests are given a packet of coffee from a finca five miles away and a cafetière to prepare their own brew. In a few years the property will produce its own beans: 7,000 coffee trees have been planted on site and should reach maturity in 2025." ~ The Times, January 2022

Hacienda AltaGracia, the Holistic Resort in Costa Rica That Has Conquered Emma Roberts

"Yes, we know. This is the definition of wellness and achieving it is possible thanks to the new hotel that Auberge Resorts has just opened in Costa Rica. It is an oasis of rest and peace in which the objective focuses its attention in a single direction: disconnect from the unstoppable rhythm of the world, blend in with nature and find oneself to recover energy and then be able to press play with more force and agility." ~ Harper's Bazaar, January 2022

Paradise Found: Five Innovative Retreats in Costa Rica Put the Country's Natural Wonders Front and Center

"About a hundred miles south, in the Pérez Zeledón mountains, sits Hacienda AltaGracia, Auberge Resorts Collection. The retreat--composed of one- and two-bedroom casitas designed by New York based Nina Gotlieb--has on-site naturalists who lead expeditions to nearby trails, rivers and coffee farms. The hotel is also the site of the first non-U.S. outpost of holistic wellness brand THE WELL; guests can indulge in therapies inspired by local healing traditions." ~ Travel + Leisure, December 2021

Spa Vacations: Escape Plan

"The Well at Hacienda AltaGracia is The Well’s third location and its first international site (the others are in Manhattan and Connecticut). The Costa Rican outpost oers restorative spa treatments and expert-led experiences—and celebrates its verdant setting with an emphasis on Pachamama (Mother Earth), incorporating local botanical ingredients into its therapies." ~ Elle, January 2022

The Most Exciting Hotel Openings This Winter

"AltaGracia pushes it one step further, adding a wellness program that trumps all others in the area via their partnership with New York City–based well-being institute The Well. This includes hydrotherapy treatments from indoor pools looking out into the jungles and expert-led retreats on subjects like energy flow. In short, it may just be the most perfect fusion of wellness and nature coming out of the pandemic." ~ Condé Nast Traveler, December 9, 2021

“Bold travel ideas you should book as soon as possible... Check out a new hotel in the southern highlands of Costa Rica which combines healthy living with natural beauty.” ~ WSJ Magazine, November 29, 2018

"Between the resort's sustainable design, luxurious accommodations, delicious dining options, and plenty of unique cultural things to do, it's certainly worthy of making your bucket list." ~ Travel and Leisure, July 27, 2021

"The resort has three excellent farm-to-table restaurants and the largest spa in Central America, which is equipped with its own hydrotherapy center." ~ Condé Nast Traveler, October 5, 2021

Whether you're a spa novice or a wellness aficionado, this retreat is not to be missed.” ~ Harper's Bazaar, October 20, 2021

"Auberge Resorts Collection's Hacienda AltaGracia, which opens this month, is a verdant paradise for wellness seekers." ~ Town & Country Magazine, August 26, 2021

"They take a holistic approach with age-old healing rituals and to achieve this, they have eight treatment rooms, a thermal suite, several ranches for outdoor conscious movement classes, and even a healing garden." ~ Elle Mexico, September 2, 2021

“#1 Resort in Central America” ~ Condé Nast Traveler, October 5, 2021

"Hacienda AltaGracia, a new resort from the Auberge Resorts Collection, is your gateway to paradise and opens late 2021. Take it all in the caballista way, riding on horseback and enjoying your desayuno by the river each morning." ~ Travel and Leisure, December 13, 2021

"[Hacienda AltaGracia] will offer a luxurious destination to rejuvenate, find thrilling adventures inspired by native culture and the lush landscape, and savor impeccable cuisine inspired by Nicoya, the adjacent "Blue Zone" to the sprawling, 180-acre property." ~ Veranda, August 2, 2021
