Villa Manzu is located within the lush grounds of the Peninsula Papagayo in Costa Rica, a completely private sanctuary on a small peninsula of its own. Villa Manzu offers eight oversized suites spread across the 30,000 square feet Villa. There is plenty of room to spread out, from the two pools and hot tub, to the theater room and expansive bar/party room. The grounds are dotted with hammocks, chairs, and restful areas, perfect for quiet moments taking in 180-degree sea views and watching monkeys cavort in the trees. Adventure guides will customize your stay to ensure that you live the Costa Rican adventure and immerse you in the Costa Rican culture.
Villa Manzu is by far a superior experience as your stay at includes the services of a private chef, servers, bartender, butler, driver, and even an adventure specialist to arrange excursions. Spend your vacation hiking down to the beach, relaxing in the two heated pools and hot tub, practicing on the yoga platform or using the available sports equipment, from fishing and snorkeling gear to stand-up paddleboards, surfboards and kayaks. Catch a movie in the home theater, treat yourself to the sauna and steam room, work out in the fitness room and gather for a game in the recreation room. It is as if you are coming to the finest of boutique hotels yet have the place all to yourselves!
Pricing is an all-encompassing price that allows for Villa Manzu staff to attend to all the needs of our guests with no further charges. This includes transportation needs, adventure guides, and toys to enjoy the Villa and surrounding beaches and property. The most wonderful part of the stay is the cuisine. We have an exceptional team of chefs that have been with us for many years now which all our visiting writers have raved upon. Custom menus prepared by our own exclusive executive chef team are included with every stay; as well as fresh homemade cuisine including fresh baked breads, sweets, and room snacks and mini bars.

Both the outdoor and indoor living spaces are decorated with modern shapes and neutral tones for a chic contemporary feel. In the living rooms, white upholstery and wicker and wood textures are set off by pink piping and patterned coral throw cushions. High ceilings and transom windows make the air-conditioned rooms feel airy and light, but full-length drapes and tailored area rugs anchor the look. The dining room has a formal stone-topped table and ocean views for elegant dinners, and the spacious kitchen has a long breakfast bar.
