Wild Indigo

Step into paradise at our most popular and remote seaside villa, Wild Indigo. A quiet respite and home away from home, this Moroccan-tinged abode draws inspiration from its idyllic, tropical setting to enhance the interior, which already includes panoramic ocean views and breathtaking vistas. Inside this exclusive villa, you'll find five bedrooms, multiple bathrooms, a chef-grade kitchen, a wading pool with an attached wet bar, a plunge pool, and a lush, palm-filled courtyard. 

Additional features include a jungle garden and putting green for a quick round of golf. Even better, the Wild Indigo villa boasts unparalleled privacy, meaning you don't have to see anyone outside of your group if you don't want to. Steps lead directly from the villa into soft, white sand and the expanse of sparkling turquoise sea beyond. Outside, you can bask in the sunshine while relaxing in one of the villa's two pools, one of which is even perfect for younger children! 

Enjoy your romantic getaway with a loved one while stargazing on the terrace or reveling in the sun-soaked yard. Providing quiet respite from the rest of the island, this enchanting home away from home rivals any other honeymoon suite and can accommodate up to 10 adults. Whether you book a stay at the Wild Indigo to relish time with some of your closest friends and family members or you come here with just your significant other, Wild Indigo has all of the luxury accommodations you would expect and so much more. 

In-house spa services and a private chef are available upon request, meaning you'll never need to leave the villa if you don't want to! Become one with the exotic natural surroundings of the Papagayo Peninsula and immerse yourself in the captivating natural beauty, including untouched wilderness and incredibly scenic views of the ocean. 

If you're feeling more adventurous, you can arrange for a planned excursion or fishing trip. Visit the local beach club, one of the island's eight exclusive restaurants, or our signature Arnold Palmer golf course for a round of golf. Take an afternoon trek through the landscape, spotting vibrant blooms and remarkable flora before returning to Wild Indigo for a glass of wine and a chef-made meal on the terrace. 

Spend your holiday sitting outside on the patio, watching the waves gently lap at the shore, and watching the birds soar and arc overhead into the nearby jungle. Whether you want to chase an adrenaline high on one of our many planned excursions or relax and let all of your real-world worries melt away, Wild Indigo is the perfect place to do just that. 

With so many amenities at your fingertips, you'll feel like a VIP member as our concierge staff attends to your every need and whim. There is nothing quite like the experience you'll have at the Wild Indigo, the ultimate getaway.


Villa Serena is one of our smaller villas, but it's also one of the most highly regarded. The exclusive atmosphere is complemented by the gated hillside entrance and surrounding tropical greenery that adds an extra layer of privacy to this cozy estate. Here, you’ll enjoy seclusion and serenity on your tranquil retreat.

Inside the four luxurious bedrooms (three of which boast astounding views of the deep, blue sea), you'll find the perfect accommodations for a tropical island retreat with a tight-knit group of friends or family. The Serena villa is also located conveniently close to the peninsula's many restaurants, natural wonders, Arnold Palmer golf course, and the jaw-dropping beachfront. 

When you step inside the villa, you will immediately be greeted by the soothing atmosphere and refreshing natural sunlight filtering through the glass doors and numerous windows. The entire interior smells of the sea breeze and is decked out with dark wood trim, elegant stone accents, and designer furnishings. There are multiple rooms for guests to gather and chat over drinks or chef-made meals. In total, the villa boasts four bedrooms and four en-suite baths, comfortably allowing up to eight guests to stay. 

Every room has a terrace from which you can look at the ocean, and in the yard, you'll find a pool, BBQ, and oversized patio to enjoy the outdoors from morning ‘til dark. For evenings inside, guests can gather in the movie and television den to watch Netflix or Amazon Video. 

As with our other villas, staying in the Serena grants you access to the signature golf course, our Four Seasons tennis facility, Prieta Beach Club & Spa, the Children's Club, and the Papagayo Explorers Club. You can also visit any of Papagayo's eight restaurants during your stay, and your reservation includes daily pool cleaning and housekeeping! You won’t have to lift a finger during your trip.
