Holistic history is being brought to life in the forthcoming Hacienda AltaGracia from Auberge Resorts Collection. Weaving a blend of ancient and innovative therapies, the mountain-bound destination will prioritize holistic wellness delivered in the expansive setting of Costa Rica’s Cordillera de Talamanca range. Services across the 180-acre property will also be delivered by New York wellness enterprise the Well. The space is expected to open sometime in November.
The resort’s wellbeing offerings include a greenhouse-style pool and therapy room lined with heated stone beds overlooking a lush treetop canopy called Casa de Agua, and the Well at Hacienda AltaGracia. The Well will comprise eight treatment rooms, a hydrotherapy tub, and a thermal suite.
Signature gastronomic concept Grano will host a kitchen to serve as a culinary laboratory, while the Mercado café will draw upon the surrounding coffee plantation for its menu. Open-fire grill Cienfuegos, poolside eatery Picoteo, and cocktail bar Las Brisas will round out the property’s F&B options.
New York-based designer Nina Gotlieb is spearheading the interiors of the property’s hacienda-style casitas. Neutral colorways will complement textural elements like wood, stone, and organic fibers. Select accommodations will also feature private plunge pools and stone terraces.
“The goal was to create an environment that evokes a feeling of having escaped to somewhere truly magical,” Gotlieb says. “I tried to imagine every move through the eyes of a fictionalized brother and sister, having taken over the family compound in order to welcome guests.”
