Florblanca

An exclusive and stylish beach-front resort offering refined accommodation each with an opulent open air bathroom, two-person hammock for romantic relaxation, and an outdoor lounge where you can listen to bird song and waves breaking on the shore. This is a superb setting with facilities to match: relish subtle sushi creations and tasty tacos in Nectar Restaurant washed down by a fruit smoothie or cocktail, perfect your tan by the pool, indulge your senses with a visit to Spa Bambu and enjoy the benefits of a yoga session in the open air studio. You’ll have a wealth of activities to choose between, too, from surfing – with instruction for all levels of experience, to horse riding, from rainforest hikes to the thrills of zip lining among the treetops. And there are some special touches: romantics will love dining by candlelight in the private gazebo, fitness conscious guests can take advantage of energising workouts by the beach, water babies will spend hours swimming and snorkelling, and everyone will adore the sensational sunsets over the ocean.          

 

Why-foodWhy go to Florblanca?

Florblance offers a beguiling blend of relaxation and activity. Indulge yourself in the luxury of your villa, savour fine cuisine served in a relaxed atmosphere by the beach, refresh mind, body and soul with a spa treatment, yoga or pilates class, and listen to birds and monkeys in the tropical gardens. Throw caution to the wind as you surf the ocean waves, take to the saddle for a horse ride along the beach, visit local nature reserves for views of some of Costa Rica’s rich and varied wildlife, and venture into the jungle and swim beneath waterfalls – there are just some of the activities on offer at Florblanca.
