Manual Antonio, Costa Rica (Vocus) March 5, 2008
As the sun sets over the Pacific Ocean, remaining light rays tickle the toes of honeymooners savoring daytime on the private patio of their elegant guestroom. Here, between the wilds and waves of Costa Rica, sits Arenas del Mar Beach & Nature Resort, the country’s newest 100 percent sustainable, luxury accommodations.
Exquisite style and complete sustainability are a duo not often found in sweet escapes. But now, after vows have been exchanged and cake cut, perfect pairs can experience the best of both worlds.
Spacious ocean-view suites boasting spectacular ocean views, outdoor Japanese-style Jacuzzis and all the amenities of a fine hotel are only a few highlights of Arenas del Mar. Once visitors venture outside their decadently-appointed guestroom, they’re bound to be amazed by the vast number of convenient comforts at the resort – including elegant dining, the intimate Las Brisas Spa, beautiful nature trails and exclusive beaches – all on 11 acres of private rainforest nature reserve.
For active honeymooners, Arenas del Mar offers adrenaline-inducing activities like zip line tours through the rainforest canopy, whitewater rafting on nearby tropical rivers, ocean kayaking, and surfing lessons.
But for more laid-back newlyweds the resort doesn’t disappoint. Beachside horseback riding and various leisurely tours are available, including a half day guided walk through the Butterfly and Aquatic Gardens Nature Reserve or morning and sunset sails that feature an unforgettable display on Costa Rican hues and often, dolphins, whales and turtles.
Lastly, and perhaps most enthusiastically, eco-minded lovebirds will surely admire the resort’s natural treasures and environmentally-friendly philosophy and programs. Besides being home to plenty of exotic wildlife such as white-faced monkeys, sloths and parrots, Arenas del Mar is a model of sustainability, built to earn the highest level of approval from the Costa Rican Certification for Sustainable Tourism. The first 100 percent sustainable development project in Costa Rica, the resort features energy-efficient solar heating panels, water heaters, recycled building materials, natural linens and electric on-site vehicles.
