– Unique Rainforest Setting Empowers and Inspires Visitors to Embrace Simple, Holistic Ayurvedic Principles to Achieve Life-Long Wellness – 

In a setting that redefines “green” even by Costa Rica’s greener-than-most standards, Tabacón Grand Spa Thermal Resort introduces a comprehensive “Lifestyle & Wellness Program” designed to engage visitors in meaningful and transformative change.

Harnessing the energy of the active Arenal Volcano, the healing powers of its natural thermal springs and its own all-natural Ayurvedic approach, the five-star, carbon-neutral resort’s intensive,highly personalized program provides the tools, techniques and knowledge to achieve a lifestyle of lasting wellness at the physical, mental and spiritual levels. Under the direction and supervision of a licensed nutritionist, guests stay a full week or more, experiencing a fully integrated plan designed to anchor them on a path to wellness.

The program is priced starting at $3,800 per person, based on double occupancy, and includes:


·         Accommodations for seven nights (or more) at Tabacón Grand Spa Thermal Resort;

“When you are poised at the base of an active volcano, immersed in the warmth of a mineral-rich thermal spring, there is no better place to experience the powerful connection of mind, body and spirit,”said resort Managing Director Uwe Wagner. “There is no more unique or conducive setting in the world to achieve lasting change. While this program is designed to inspire our guests in their pursuit of lifelong health and wellness, it is not a diet program, although those who adopt this enlightened lifestyle approach may well experience some weight loss,” noted Wagner. “The program is designed to achieve the full benefits of Ayurveda, an intricate system of healing and living that originated in India thousands of years ago. It’s not about starvation or exercising until you reach exhaustion, it is about finding physical, mental and spiritual balance. Through our program, guests are taught a healthy lifestyle that they can embrace throughout their life.”

In keeping in the spirit of Ayurveda, the program includes a variety of memorable experiences that up the “vacation” quotient, including cooking classes, participation in the resort’s “Plant A Tree” program and a gala dinner in a private bungalow with a personal chef and guest-designed menu. In addition, guests choose two “Lifestyle & Wellness” packages at The Grand Spa. The Spa offers 11 different packages, each featuring three spa treatments and a 30-minute “Relaxation & Contemplation Moment,” a restful experience highlighted by freshly brewed herbal tea and sliced fresh fruit service together with a unique footbath and heated herbal back pack.  Among the Spa’s 11 packages are the Ayurveda Shiras package, featuring a Poppy Seed Body Scrub, Herbal Bath and Shirodhara Massage, and the Oxi Tropical package, featuring a Coconut Body Scrub, Tropical Fruits Body Wrap and Back, Neck and Shoulder Massage.

The health of each guest is a top priority at Tabacón. Prior to their arrival, program guests complete an extensive survey that sets the framework for their individualized program. The seven-page questionnaire and consent form reveals details about the guest’s current health, eating and exercise habits, family history, goals and attitudes, ensuring that the Tabacon team can craft an individualized program that will meet the guest’s overall wellness objectives. On arrival, they will meet with the resort’s nutritionist and spa staff and Ayurveda chef to design an Ayurvedic-based plan that promotes self-awareness and nourishment of the senses to balance mind and body. “That is the key to ongoing wellness,” says Wagner.


Physically, Tabacón is uniquely situated to deliver such a rejuvenating, life-changing experience. Poised at the base of the Arenal Volcano, it is the only hotel in the world with a traditional Mexican sweatbath embedded in the energy of an active volcano. At Tabacón’s Grand Spa, guests can enjoy additional services such as Watsu treatment, which features a series of therapist-guided stretches within Tabacón’s thermal pools, uses water heated by the volcano, and its Volcanic Mud Wrap features local volcanic mud vigorously massaged into the body.
