In 1993, Beau and Cory Williams visited Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula with their father and grandfather and fell in love with the sparkling waters of the Pacific Ocean and the Golfo Dulce—a world-class sport fishing destination in the making. By 1999, they had opened Crocodile Bay Resort and began a legacy that would one day encompass the largest professional sport fishing team in Central America. Today, Botánika Osa Peninsula, part of Curio Collection by Hilton™, continues their long sought-after tradition.
Botánika Osa Peninsula enlisted internationally renowned talents who ensured gold standards in the mindful construction practices, materials and interior furnishings of your hotel and residences in the rainforest. Hilton collaborated with esteemed architecture, design, and planning firm Gensler; architectural design studio Modus Operandi; leading resort developer Francisco Jove; Osa Forest Gardens, which works with local community nurseries to source and plant native flora; and international landscape, architectural and land planning firm Geyer Coburn Hutchins, which focuses on environmentally sensitive and sustainable design solutions.
Botánika and Curio share a similar philosophy—to be an authentic representation of the Osa Peninsula and provide attentive service to our owners and guests. Uniquely, Curio - A Collection by Hilton is the perfect partner for Botánika. Now, both intrepid explorers seeking one-of-a-kind experiences and travelers that yearn for unfussy luxuries can find their quintessential idea of paradise.
