Arenas Del Mar

Manuel Antonio National Park, Costa Rica
247 sq. m

Arenas del Mar is a luxury five-star beachfront resort in Costa Rica, located in the ever-popular tourist attraction, The Manuel Antonio National Park. The scope of the project included rejuvenating and modernizing the look and feel of the bar, reception, and pool area. KMA drew colour and materiality from the natural surroundings of the resort to create a design that blends seamlessly with the tropical landscape. The light hue of the flooring was chosen to evoke the sandy beach beyond, and the bar was envisioned as a sort of pixelated image of the stunning shoreline. The reception area brings the outside in by making use of the same contemporary teak wood lounge chairs and tables as are located on the beach, and the reception desk echoes the natural environment while adding just the right amount of playfulness to the project. KMA was truly able to achieve an organic and refined atmosphere in this lush coastal resort.

In addition to the renovation of the Mirador Bar and the reception area, our team was commissioned by the client to create an iconic element for their resort. KMA designed a unique beach side swing and this has since become a favourite of guests at the hotel. The Arenas del Mar swing is an iconic landmark of the Arenas del Mar resort. It’s sleek shape provides a high degree of comfort which is first revealed to the user upon use. It is the perfect place to take in the gorgeous beach views at Arenas del Mar.
