Luxury spa in Costa Rica: Los Altos de Eros

Los Altos de Eros

Luxury Spa in Costa Rica

While I was laying naked on a table at Los Alto de Eros in Costa Rica being drizzled with chocolate, I realized that this might literally be the definition of “self seduction”.  I thought about licking myself,  twice, but I refrained. It will now be the one thing that I regret most in life. The aroma of chocolate was highly intoxicating, the rain was pouring down all around me and the chill in the air is the only thing that kept me from falling into a deep coma. The Chocolate Dream body scrub at Los Altos de Eros spa is just as described, a chocolate dream.

Los Altos de Eros Luxury Spa

Los Altos de Eros is an award winning luxury spa in Costa Rica. The meaning of the name is  “height of passion.” I heard that it was the #1 spa in Costa Rica, which only meant it was mandatory that I go. The location is off the beaten path, and you need to know where you are going or have really good directions.  There is only a small sign that will point you down a dirt road – blink and you might miss it. As with most things in Costa Rica, if they’re a little harder to get to, it only means they’re worth it.

As soon as you park your car and set foot on the property, the staff  welcomes  you as personal guests of their home. Much of the staff has been here since the spa opened over ten years ago. The design of this luxury spa and boutique hotel is more like a large private home than a typical hotel. There is no front desk, they are well aware that you will be arriving.  They greet you and simply escort you to your room.  As you enter you walk through the open floor plan of the kitchen, dining room and living room, which then leads you out to the pool.  The blue water welcomes you and and the beauty of Costa Rica instantly surrounds you.

All of the rooms are around the pool and even though there may be other guests staying here, it feels very private and secluded.  They only have six rooms available and there are no kids allowed at Los Altos de Eros.

A Perfect Spa Day

My husband and I were there to celebrate our 13th wedding anniversary. Once we settled into our room we were offered breakfast before our spa day began at 9:00am. Anyone can come to Los Altos de Eros for their popular Spa Day, which consists of three treatments and a gourmet spa lunch. The cost is $250 and includes transportation from the Tamarindo area.

We were escorted down to the spa and began our day with a 90 minute couples massage. The spa area has a rushing waterfall, hot tub, private shower, two bathrooms and a small boutique. The five treatment rooms are private but open to a beautiful view and fresh air of a lush green valley. After our massages we were able to spend some time in the jacuzzi before my next treatment which was a facial and then my Chocolate Dream body scrub.

Once my treatments were finished the spa lunch was brought down to this area where we ate right from our lounge chairs. The spa lunch was one of the best Spa lunches I’ve ever had. Fresh tuna and chicken skewers, delicious ceviche, pasta salad and a mixed green salad.
