Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

Xandari Plantation is set in the lush, tropical landscapes of Costa Rica's Central Valley, with gorgeous views.

Rooms at Xandari Plantation

Xandari Plantation’s spacious villas are each individually designed, bristling with artworks and decorated in gloriously vibrant colours. All villas have private garden terraces and panoramic views of the valleys and rainforests. The rooms are deliberately missing televisions to ensure maximum peace and tranquility.

Food & Drink

The indoor/outdoor restaurant features a healthy continental and Costa Rican menu. Many of the fruits and vegetables are from the hotel's own organic greenhouse, orchard and gardens. You can explore them on the 4 kilometres of private scenic trails, and visit the orchid farm and greenhouse.


For some blissful pampering with a view, head to the spa, perched on the hillside, complete with an open-air Jacuzzi overlooking the Central Valley. Take a refreshing dip in the pool or stretch out on the terrace. Watching the sunset from the pool deck is a magnificent way to draw your day to a close.

Activities at Xandari Plantation

Take a trip to the nearby Poas Volcano or Carara National Park. You can also go river rafting, swing through the rainforest canopy, visit La Paz Waterfall Gardens, tour a coffee processing plant or enjoy a round of golf.
