Summer’s almost over. The air slowly churns and the promise of autumn awaits. It’s slipping away—quick! Time for a quick last minute getaway.
It might be a whole hop, skip and jump away, but stray from the crowds and head somewhere more low-key. Somewhere that understands the importance of an authentic hideaway, where the stars are brighter and the air a little sweeter. Florblanca Resort in Costa Rica is an oasis away from home on the very tip of the unspoilt southern Nicoya Peninsula, just outside the tiny town of Santa Teresa.
Only 10 exclusive villas create this boutique property, and each one has a level of seclusion perfect for a personal nook nestled in hillside foliage. The combination of simultaneous rainforest and oceanic environment is a breathtaking, like nothing you’ve ever seen before. It’s the next best thing to owning your own little slice of heaven, a la Richard Branson style.
Luxury greets nature, in the most genuine fashion.
You wake up to howler monkeys, can bird watch all day from your living area and gaze at the night time sky from your hammock….but you also get air conditioning 24/7 and the lap of luxury treatment. It’s an all inclusive style resort, so while you’re free to wander off you can still get an enchanting Costa Rican experience all in one spot. Yoga, indulgent spa services, horsebackriding, forest excursions, ziplining, an abundance of romantic ambiance. And of course, it’s not a trip to Costa Rica without a visit to the waves.
A major lure of this land is the incredible world class surfing. Cody Dillon, GM of Florblanca, came to Costa Rica seven years ago to learn to surf and never looked back. ‘It has become an incredible part of my daily routine here in Playa Santa Teresa. The waves are a way of life. There is no better feeling than watching the sunset into the Pacific while sitting on your board or riding a wave all the way to the beach.’
The resort’s food is out of this world with cuisine from Executive Chef Spencer Graves, renowned Chef who worked with the likes of Thomas Keller at Per Se and now creates innovative Pacific Rim fusion seafood with locally sourced ingredients daily.
Depending on when you get here you’ll probably have a mini thunderstorm daily, but no worries. You can always grab the laptop and a cigar, set up on your hammock and get some ‘work’ done. Or at least make your employees & colleagues incredibly jealous…
