Papaya Hotel & Spa has been modelled on Mr Zaragovia’s Nayara Hotel, Spa & Gardens in the Arenal rainforest. Since opening its doors in 2010, Nayara has been an extraordinary success and is now listed by Travel + Leisure and Condé Nast as one of the world’s top ten hotels, as well as enjoying the incredible position of having the 2nd highest Trip Advisor rating for a hotel anywhere in the world. In January 2016 the hotel was named #1 Luxury Hotel in the World by the Trip Advisor Reader’s Choice awards.
The Zaragovia team will operate Papaya Hotel & Spa employing their award-winning service and management standards. 70 rooms of accommodation, comprising 55 luxuriously appointed one- and two-bedroom villas each nestled into the spine of land between our two beaches, will offer a 5-star retreat experience in a natural, contemporary setting.
Walking and golf cart trails will connect the hotel villas to the hotel amenities as well as the beach, beach house, hiking trails, nature park and farm.
Rendezvous Bay homeowners will have full access to the hotel facilities, which include two restaurants, bars, pools, a state-of-the-art gym overlooking the eastern beach, a wellness spa with private tropical gardens and yoga pavilion, and tennis courts.
