Villa Manzu

Villa Manzu is a private estate covering 30,000 square feet and sits on five acres in an isolated peninsula on the the grounds of the Peninsula Papagayo. This impressive estate offers eight luxury suites, perfect for families or groups of friends travelling together.

Villa Manzu features two swimming pools, theatre room and expansive bar/party room, spa, yoga platform, indoor and outdoor games and gym.The grounds are dotted with hammocks, chairs and peaceful resting areas, perfect for enjoying the panoramic views.

The eight suites encompass 15 beds allocated as five king bed suites, a double queen suite, a double king suite, and a custom finished bunk room with 4 twins and 2 king beds.  Each suite offer televisions, a minibar with morning coffee service, walk-in closets with Costa Rican hardwood detailing and full bathrooms with tubs and showers finished in onyx, marble and custom tiling.

Villa Manzu’s main wing is located in a private section of the villa, accessible by its own entrance, elevator and staircase. The first master suite, La Lora, and children’s suite, Los Monos, are up one flight of stairs, while the penthouse suite, Pacifico, is by itself on the third floor.

The Casita – The Casita is a private two-story house with two suites, Flora and Madera. It is connected to the Main Estate via a covered, open walkway, yet feels completely private for honeymooners, older children or a family. An internal staircase connects the two floors, creating a shared family atmosphere.

The two garden suites – Naciente and Arena – occupy the lower levels of the home and offer two beds each, quiet garden vistas and peekaboo ocean views. Both suites are accessible by private entrances and are in close proximity to the gym, spa and entertainment bar. The doors of the Naciente Suite open up directly to the plunge pool and Jacuzzi.

Plumeria, the courtyard-view bedroom, is located just off the main entrance and offers a California king bed, a custom bathroom and a walk-in closet. While equal in size and decor, this suite does not offer the same dramatic views as the other suites.

The villa includes two golf carts to get around the estate, a dozen surf boards, stand up paddle boards, two kayaks and three mountain bikes. The Arnold Palmer golf course, tennis courts and marina are minutes away. There are many hiking paths leading from the Villa to several nearby beaches with the closest only being 100 yards away.

Nestled along the palm-fringed sands of the Peninsula’s most coveted cove is Playa Prieta and the 38,000 sqft Beach Club where you can drift away the afternoon under the Pochote trees and the sounds of the ocean.

Rates include  breakfast, lunch, and dinner prepared by amazing chefs; a wine room stocked with hand-picked wines and award winning cigars; a butler and maid services; and a concierge to help enrich your stay. The Villa drivers will wisk you around Costa Rica in a Range Rover, Ford Explorer SUV, or Jeep Wrangler.
