AW2 designed the resort called Kasiiya Papagayo so as not to disturb or damage its site of tree-covered, rocky peninsular overlooking the Gulf of Papagayo.
The resort is fragmented into 14 guest rooms arranged in clusters across the 123-acre (49-hectare) resort.
Guest rooms are elevated above the ground and designed to be demountable as part of the resort's construction strategy.
Locally sourced timber forms the frames and platforms, which are secured to the ground with screw piles that can be removed with little impact to the ground.
Canvas forms the tented roof on top along with the exterior and interior walls.
The project is completely solar-powered, while other environmental strategies are an on site well that provides water, and the use of electric vehicles.
Each guest suite is accessed by a private pathway and decorated with a series of custom-made furnishings designed by AW2 and manufactured by Colonial in neutral tones to complement the surrounds.
