Xandari Resort & Spa

Xandari Resort & Spa

The Xandari story started long before the Kerala connection – it was a piece of paradise in Costa Rica, built by architect Sherrill Broudy who had a lifetime of experience and skill, and brought alive by his wife Charlene who added vibrant art, sculpture, ceramics and colour to the visual pallette. Along with them, the idea grew on with attentive design, green thumbed gardeners and a network of services by the local community that surrounds Xandari. Travelers who came in the early 90s, return every year to a place that is both familiar and at the same time constantly renewing itself. New ideas for energy efficiency, recycling and minimising usage of plastic have been implemented over the years. The farm and the orchard have now become the main source for raw ingre- dients in the kitchen. The coffee from this region is world renowned and you can take one of our bags home as well.

    How to get here

    Xandarí sits on the slopes of the iconic Poas Volcano in the Central Valley where Costa Rica´s four major cities, San Jose, Alajuela, Heredia, and Cartago can be found.

    From the San Jose International Airport, you are only a short 20–30-minute drive away depending on traffic. As you exit the airport, take the route to the center of Alajuela. You will pass by Central Park with the church on the far side. Continue along this street which is Calle 2 or Route 72.

    Follow Route 72 up the mountainside for a few minutes before arriving at the town of Itiquis. You turn left at the Segovias Hardware store and follow the road up until you meet Calle Burios via Calle Corporativa and at the end of the street, you have arrived!
    Coming from the Pacific Ocean or from San Jose, look for the signs to Alajuela and then continue the directions from above.
    Our recommendation: Combine your stay at Xandari with a visit to the Arenal Volcano where Tilajari Hotel Resort can be your basecamp to explore the adventure capital of the world. Close-to-nature experiences that will contrast the relaxation and serenity of Xandari.
