Luxury Beachfront Hotel Arenas del Mar

Updated June 3, 2020

Looking for luxury lodging while staying in sustainable and gorgeous natural surroundings?  You and your beloved are sure to have a lovely time at Arenas del Mar Resort in Costa Rica.

This beautiful hotel was awarded the Five Sustainability Leaf Award. It is the first Costa Rican luxury hotel to have received that award along with a Five Star Rating.  We all know how important environmental impact is nowadays, and this makes Arenas del Mar the perfect option for your wedding or elopement.

Arenas del Mar Wedding Ceremonies on the Beach

This fabulous beach resort is located on its own private nature reserve. The 11-acre reserve offers peaceful nature trails open to guests for a relaxing stroll through the rainforest and access to not one but two breathtaking beaches.

The first is the public (and famous) Espadilla Beach and the second is their own private Playitas Beach. Imagine a wedding ceremony on this private beach with the sound of the surf rolling in the background. All the while a gentle sea breeze plays with the fabric of her wedding dress. This is the epitome of a destination wedding.  

Impressive rocks surround the beach on two sides and make for a spectacular backdrop for wedding photos.  Add to that a brilliant Costa Rican sunset and your special day will be the most memorable day of your life.

Wedding Planning

While Arenas del Mar in Costa Rica doesn’t offer their own wedding planning services, you can hire a Costa Rica wedding planner to set up the details for you at the resort.  These planners work well with Arenas del Mar and know every nook and cranny on the property and will help you navigate the ins and outs of wedding planning so that you can relax and enjoy your day.  

The private beach is a picture perfect place to exchange vows and get some spectacular wedding photos.  Having your ceremony in a quiet corner of a private beach rather than on the public one is always a huge advantage. This extra bit of privacy is the icing on the cake that will make your day perfect. Excellent for elopements and intimate destination weddings.

Honeymoon Amenities at Arenas del Mar

The attentive staff at Arenas del Mar in Costa Rica know how to do romance. You can choose to have a delightful meal down by the hotel’s private beach.
