Finca Rosa Blanca is a space for the eco-conscious traveller, situated on the grounds of a sustainable coffee plantation. It’s just half an hour from capital San José, but feels worlds away. Located in a protected cloud forest and one of Costa Rica’s oldest regions, this is eco-friendly luxury at its best, with surrounds comprising of tropical gardens, hiking trails, jungle, and of course, coffee plantations.
The architecture is luxurious but unpretentious with bold murals and crafts peppering rooms and communal areas, framed by interior gardens, waterfalls, and skylights. Infinity pools are edged by gardens and tropical landscaping – perfect for enjoying a dip surrounded by lush foliage. Each room is individually designed with Costa Rican flair, using bright colours and natural materials that create a space to blend seamlessly with the outside world. This hotel is ideal for honeymooners with its luxury villas for two, featuring private decks overlooking the coffee plantation and volcanoes, as well as bigger family suites.
Staff are warm, hospitable and visibly proud of their country and plantation. Take the coffee and cupping tour through the organic coffee farm before sampling the goods yourself, and in the evening, indulge in a massage at the onsite spa El Tagua Wellness Retreat. Dinner can be enjoyed on an open-air terrace or in a private dining room, with chefs using ingredients from the local greenhouses and gardens to ensure fresh flavours. Volcano exploring and river rafting are among the plethora of activities on offer at Finca Rosa Blanca.
