Tabacón Grand Spa - Thermal Resort is a five-star resort located at the foot of the Arenal Volcano, in the northern region of Costa Rica. A three-time World Travel Awards recipient and three-leaf Sustainable Tourism Certificate holder, the 114-room property offers luxurious accommodations and friendly service in a quaint tropical environment. The resort recently re-opened its Spa with new facilities and treatments where you can enjoy an unforgettable, relaxing experience. A world of amenities in the heart of the rain forest.

The Grand Spa offers a range of wet and dry treatments, including the signature Tabacón massage which begins with a series of bends and stretches to regulate the body's flow of vital energy, and concludes with volcanic mud vigorously massaged into the body.  A Hot Stone massage combines warmed volcanic stones with eucalyptus, lemon and rosemary oils.  Watsu and other water therapies are also available.

From the heart of the volcano spring fountains of thermomineral water which form the Tabacon River, running at a soothing 39C (102F), forming cascades and natural pools through exotic tropical gardens, and flowing into our pools, to guarantee an unforgettable sensation.

The Tabacón Hot Springs perfectly combine mineral content, volume and temperature. While there are many hot springs destinations around the world, few offer this special balance set in a splendorous natural paradise.

Tabacón's 114 climate-controlled guest rooms feature Costa Rican woods and beautiful furnishings hand-crafted by Costa Rican artisans.  Rooms overlook gardens or the forest. Guest rooms feature cable television, DVD, personal safes, private bars and coffee makers. Guest bathrooms include luxurious bathrobes, deluxe bath toiletries, hair dryers, and bathtubs.

Special rooms and some facilities are accessible for handicapped travelers.

Tabacón’s hospitality mission is to provide the ideal setting and personalized services to help you attain a state of complete relaxation. The perfect dining experience is the ultimate complement to a full day of adventure, spa treatments and relaxation in our hot springs and verdant gardens.
