What our guests say about Kasiiya ...

No Better Place to Work Remotely!

My wife and I just spent two weeks in CR including nine nights at Kasiiya. Marique (Manager) and her team do an incredible job of making you feel at home … The property blends into the environment and the rooms are spacious, clean and well-equipped. … We were very sad to leave and will be heading back soon, hopefully before the end of this season."

“My husband and I went to Kasiiya for 5 nights of our honeymoon and it was the best decision we made for our honeymoon!The service was absolutely excellent … When we arrived, all we did was tell them who we are (they already knew anyway who was arriving and when) and then we sat down for lunch (it was 2pm) and that was the whole check-in process. No hassle! … Spa -- We loved the experience. The scrubs and messages were excellent and the chakra and reiki balancing with Yamuna was really cool. The spa was secluded in the forest … Excellent experience all around!!"

Relaxed Gorgeous Nature Luxury Resort.

Our family of six stayed at Kasiiya for 5 nights ringing in the New Year 2021. What a marvelous resort! It is beautifully designed paying respect to its natural environment and its understated elegance has a gorgeous, hip vibe. The staff was so kind and attentive getting to know each of us by name, they felt like family by the time we left."

HS T, January 2021

Such a magical place!! From the moment you arrive, you feel like you are part of the Kasiiya family - the smiles and genuine care takes it to another level of hospitality. While the serenity of wild nature is hypnotising, there is plenty to experience too - all guests have access to an adventure guide to explore water sports. Plus an amazing healer and spa therapist on site... All together the most special holiday experience I ever had and am already dreaming of coming back one day."

“I want to thank Kasiiya Papagayo for the incredibly professional and considerate way in which they have handled the response to cancelations as a result of Covid19!  I had a week in December 2020 at Kasiiya Papagayo booked with a deposit already paid ... Kasiiya immediately responded to my email and issued a full refund of my deposit.  Thank you Kasiiya for your grace and responsible stewardship during this difficult time for the world! 


Nicola Heskett, May 2020

“The hotel contacted us on its own initiative to let us know about the cancellation. Policy had been changed to reflect the impending crisis. They offered us a free cancellation and full refund.”


Thomas, May 2020

“The team at Kasiiya Papagayo has been incredible. When we first began the booking process they were readily available to answer all our questions and seemed to understand what a family vacation should be.  While the resort may “sell itself”, the interactions we had with everyone is what made us excited for our visit.  And then the world changed…  Even before talk of travel bans and shelter-at-home orders, Kasiiya was communicating to us about options to delay or cancel.  When it became clear traveling to Costa Rica was not an option, our deposit was wired directly back to us.”


Max Liszt, May 2020

Gorgeous beach, swimming, snorkeling, kayaking - and the gloriousness of Costa Rica's natural beauty all surrounding. Truly an incredible place to relax, recharge and reconnect with your loved ones. Our kids, 11 and 6 had an amazing time. Monkeys, birds, turtle tracks, fish, lizards.... what an experience they will remember forever.”

“The bay was beautiful and excellent for swimming, snorkeling and all water activities.

“ … super luxurious tents with the most comfortable beds you will ever sleep in. The spa and wellness aspect is the cherry on top of this beautiful place. Yamuma is a true healer/shaman.”


Tracy L, January 2020

“This most beautiful, remote, peaceful place offers opportunity for adventure as well as quiet time - the perfect combination of mountain and sea … we kayaked, swam, snorkeled, walked a gorgeous beach, and watched the most beautiful sunsets - all on site! The accommodations are luxurious; … the entire staff is warm and welcoming, knowledgeable and thoughtful; the food is healthy and comforting and plentiful. The impressive spa offers an added layer of relaxation and insight.”

“I specifically appreciated the thoughtfulness of the hot water delivery at night and in the morning to enjoy tea or coffee in the room. Also, the darkness of the room at night and the quality of the bed provided the best sleep we've ever had away from home! It not only provided the rest and rejuvenation we were looking for, but also inspired us to return to our normal lives considering how we can serve those with whom we come in contact with the same kindness and generosity this staff exhibited to us!”

Hidden gem. Luxury Robison Crusoe lodge. Away from the big hotels … rooms similar to the rooms of an African luxury lodge, wonderful design of the common places in particular the restaurant up the hill offering amazing sunsets!!!

This is a treasure! Design, luxury, private beach, wonderful food and magnificent sunset, the healer was lifechanging. Five days at at Kasiiya gave us slow pace and peace of mind. Love and mind grew stronger.”

"The view from the mountain top at sunset is the best I have ever seen in Costa Rica. This place is perfect for a group of friends or family for a buyout."


Tracy L, January 2020

“Barefoot luxury and dream come through - this place is magic. We have travelled all over the world and never had such a magnificent vacation! The tents in the jungle, the snorkeling, the healing, the sunset, the food, the beach, the people who work there - i'ts WOW!

Norway Jane, January 2020

“It's the perfect place for relaxing and enjoying nature at it's best while having luxurious rooms and services with thoughtful details everywhere. The staff is incredibly friendly and attentive, food is always spectacular and refreshing. We enjoyed kayaking, snorkeling and a sunrise hike which was breathtaking.”

From the moment we arrived, everything was outstanding! The room is truly the best we have ever stayed in, almost unimaginable luxury, to be able to watch a magnificent sunset from the outdoor bath whilst enjoying one of Sergio's amazing cocktails will live long in the memory!”


TomC1084, January 2020

"More like being on your own fully-staffed private island than any resort I’ve ever stayed in! Deserted beaches, immaculate service, surrounded by nature and not another guest for miles!"


Julian K, December 2019

“This ecologically rich retreat does provide frequent moments to pause, breathe, and discover. Without deadlines and distractions, our restless minds slowed to resonate with the unhurried pace of the forest and beach. Nature’s pace helped us to remember the feeling of wonder from sea turtles coming ashore in the evenings, howler monkeys dancing in the trees, and birdsong from high up in the canopy. We were enchanted by seemingly endless varieties of sea life that flowed with and around us as we snorkelled. Really, the patient magic of Kasiiya Payagayo helped us discover a refreshed and renewed pace of being.”


309timo, December 2019

“Kasiiya Papagayo is not a hotel - it is an ecolodge of the highest "barefoot" quality.

“The combination of the views, the food, the activities and most of all the amazing staff made for a trip that we will remember for the rest of our lives.


Imurph, December 2019

“The tented suites were nothing short of pure luxury. All luxury amenities from the linens to organic bath products and the truffles served at turndown.”


Msmayalou, November 2019


“The place is located in a beautiful piece of nature, along the sea shores of Costa Rica. It is an exceptional and beautiful place of nature. The Tent/Hut are like in the Serenguety. Absolutely beautiful with an outstanding architectural style, so respectful of the environment.” 


stephanelecam, October 2019

The rooms are all beautiful, and individual in their own way. Every little detail has been considered from the head torches to the walkie talkies to the flask of boiling water delivered each morning. The activities available are the cherry on the top, from the spiritual healing to the movement class to the watersports. There is so much to do.”

“We extended our stay by 2 days and we have already booked a return trip. I really do not think we have stayed at a more secluded, safe, and just awesome place on this earth!


Greg V, March 2019

"My husband and I were blown away by the secluded and completely private nature of this place! If it wasn’t for the ease of getting there from Liberia airport, I would have sworn we had our own private island for a week."
