Botánika Osa Peninsula, Curio Collection by Hilton Debuts in Costa Rica

Botánika Osa Peninsula, Curio Collection by Hilton, an eco-resort in Costa Rica’s South Pacific Coast, is officially open. Managed by Aqua-Aston Hospitality, the resort is set across 21 acres and is located near Corcovado National Park and the Pacific Ocean’s Golfo Dulce

The resort offers 44 rainforest residences, available in studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom configurations. These feature floor-to-ceiling windows, kitchenettes or full kitchens with appliances, oversized terraces and a private rooftop lounge. There will be a total of 123 rainforest residences in 2023.

The resort staff will meet guests at the airport where they will accompany them on a short shuttle ride to the resort, arriving at the Clubhouse. The space is complete with a reception area, concierge desk, outdoor seating and a courtyard terrace. It also houses the resort’s signature restaurant, lounge, wine bar, and a 2,600-square-foot fitness center.

Executive Chef Jose Tizado leads the resort’s four culinary outlets: Tierra a la Mesa, the signature restaurant; Becra, a casual dining option; Driza, the poolside cocktail lounge; and Babanca, the wine bar.

The lagoon-style swimming pool is surrounded by indigenous gardens and flanked by poolside cabanas and two jacuzzis. Fitness enthusiasts can work out at the gym, which features a stretching area and the latest training equipment. A spa is also set to open at the property in 2023.

Botánika Osa Peninsula offers guests the chance to discover the region's rich wildlife, national parks, forest reserves and protected beaches with its guided land and sea eco-adventures.

The Botánika Science and Nature Center hosts visiting scientists from major universities, including Stanford University, the Billfish Research Laboratory at the University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, and the University of Saskatchewan in Canada. The scientists educate guests about the local fauna and lead excursions to tag fish, dolphins and sharks for research. Botánika has partnered with the non-profit foundation BioSur to host the largest insect museum in southern Costa Rica with over 6,000 species of endemic butterflies, beetles and moths.

Guests can enjoy overnight and day hikes, take a guided zip-line tour of the rainforest or embark on bird- and monkey- watching tours. They can also explore the Corcovado National Park on a full-day adventure or explore the waters of the Golfo Dulce on an ocean safari to spot humpback whales, whale sharks and dolphins.

Botánika Osa Peninsula also partners with Surcos Tour on beach cleanup efforts. It works to educate guests and the local community through a Sea Turtle Conservation project. The resort also serves as a community recycling hub, with team members dedicating their time and vehicles to travel to the nearest recycling center nearly 30 miles away.

Guests will have access to Crocodile Bay Marina’s guided sportfishing excursions. The marina is expanding into a full-service international marina with 257 boat slips that can accommodate yachts up to 250 feet in length, a yacht club, a flagship over-water restaurant and seaside shops.

Puerto Jiménez Airport is just minutes from the resort. Botánika Osa Peninsula’s location also allows for daily arrivals by water via the Golfo Dulce.
