The Osa Peninsula (Spanish: Península de Osa) is a peninsula located in southwestern Costa Rica with the Pacific Ocean to the west and the Golfo Dulce to the east. The peninsula was formed geologically by a faulting system that extends north into California.

The peninsula is home to at least half of all species living in Costa Rica. The main town on the peninsula is Puerto Jimenez, which has its own airport and provides access to Corcovado National Park as well as the coastal villages of Cabo Matapalo and Carate.

From a statement issued by Hilton Hotels:

The resort will be on the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica, an unspoiled tropical rainforest that is home to 2.5% of the world’s biodiversity. The property will be nearby the Golfo Dulce, where one of the world’s few tropical fjords is located and migrating humpback whales can be seen seasonally. With the new eco-friendly Botánika resort, guests will be able to fully immerse themselves in one of the most remote locations in Costa Rica while enjoying a comfortable, luxurious stay.

Property ownership is working with local biologists and forestry specialists to ensure that the resort is being constructed in harmony with its environment. The new build will be on the former location of Crocodile Bay Resort, an eco-resort known for its sport fishing expeditions and close to Crocodile Bay Marina, which offers world class sport fishing and has a fleet of 40 privately owned boats. Staying true to the area, Botánika will offer certified in-house staff to provide tours such as the Sea Turtle Rescue Tour, jungle night walks, surfing, snorkeling, gold panning, whale watching and sport fishing. The property will be easily accessible with a five-minute drive from the Puerto Jimenez Airport.

“Guests of Botánika Osa Peninsula will be able to experience a truly magical place,” said Cory Williams, managing member, Botánika Osa Peninsula, Curio – A Collection by Hilton. “Our new resort will be a gateway to an immersive rainforest experience that guests cannot get anywhere else in the world. Between the rainforest location, the luxurious residences and our partnership with Hilton, the property is bound to become legendary when it opens in 2018.”

There will be an interior open air courtyard within each building containing plants, a plush seating area and a rooftop where guests can birdwatch and stargaze. The interior will be designed by DAS Concepts, providing a rustic yet elegant look and feel. The LEED Certified architecture will be led by Gensler, and the landscaping will be designed by GCH.
