Andaz Peninsula Papagayo (Guanacaste, Costa Rica) recently launched Onda Spa. Elevated into the trees of Costa Rica's lush forest and spreading across 11,000 square-feet, the spa offers picturesque views across the Bay of Culebra. Offering an extensive spa menu, as well as customized programs, treatments at Onda Spa are tailored to each guest and incorporate the healing power of water, natural local ingredients, and organic Costa Rican ancestral remedies to invigorate the body and spirit. Prior to beginning each treatment, guests are invited to choose a soundtrack that best suits their mood from a music menu inspired by the natural sounds and rhythms of the Papagayo region, and are personally curated by the hotel's Cultural Insider of Music, Jared Dietch. Featuring nine treatment rooms—six indoor and three outdoor—the spa menu comprises a wide array of therapeutic treatments and includes a 24-hour fitness center with steam and shower rooms and an outdoor plunge pool. Onda’s signature treatment, the Onda Cambio ($160, 60 minutes; $225, 90 minutes) blends together Papagayo’s culture, senses, and surroundings. Body massages at the spa incorporate a variety of natural products and techniques, including volcanic hot and cold stones, natural sugar cane, and reflex therapy. Facials include Rain Herbal Hydration ($225, 1 hour, 30 minutes) treatment, Refine Green Clay Detox ($160, 75 minutes; $125, 1 hour, 30 minutes), and Uplift Soya Anti-Aging ($160, 60 minutes; $225, 90 minutes) treatment, among others. Guests looking to prolong their experience can opt for a post-treatment addition, such as the Onda Bath ($50, 30 minutes), Love Scalp Massage ($35, 20 minutes), or by spending time on the spa’s idyllic relaxation terrace, which boasts serene views. The hotel’s two swimming pools are also within close vicinity of the spa, where guests can enjoy a bite to eat in one of the three restaurants, which serve some of Costa Rica’s locally flavored dishes.
