The Golden Bachelor whisks stars off to $4000 per night Costa Rican resort

The Golden Bachelor Gerry Turner whisked his final two ladies to The Springs Resort and Spa in Costa Rica for the fantasy suite episode, a location first seen in The Bachelor season 24.

From Bali to Greece, The Bachelor franchise has splurged a pretty penny on five-star Fantasy Suite locations as the couples spend their first night alone together. For the inaugural season of The Golden Bachelor, ABC whisked Gerry Turner and his final two, Theresa and Leslie, to Costa Rica’s The Springs Resort and Spa, and it’s the tropical paradise of dreams.

Beautiful scenery? Check. Lucious trees? Check. A suite unnecessarily large for two people? Check. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is the recipe for a Bachelor Fantasy Suite.

After Gerry said goodbye to Faith Martin in a shocking elimination, the 72-year-old star spent his most intimate moments yet with Leslie Fhima and Theresa Nist. While we call it “intimate”, there’s no confirmation if the reality stars got busy off-camera but one thing is for sure, it definitely brought both couples closer.

But seriously, who can resist the romantic backdrop of this season’s location: The Springs Resort and Spa in Arenal? The hotel was first seen in The Bachelor season 24 starring Peter Weber.

Have you ever seen so many pools?

Gerry Turner resided in the Falcon’s Nest, a five-bed six-bath villa expanding over 3500sqm of interior space. The outdoor living area features a large jacuzzi and hammocks on the sundeck:

The filming location costs over $8000

Gerry’s Falcon Nest room doesn’t come cheap. After all, it can sleep a whopping 14 people. One night would’ve cost ABC $3880 per night and with Turner staying in the villa for at least two nights, the total will come close to $8000.

That doesn’t include the price of Leslie and Theresa’s separate room and even if the ladies stayed in the cheapest room for $516, the total cost of both would amount to over $2000 for two nights each.

We’re hoping ABC bagged a deal for the show, but for normal rates, it cost a hefty sum.

TikTok video may have spoiled who Gerry picked

We’re just days away from finding out who the ABC star popped the question to, but speculation erupted as early as September 25 after Leslie posted a TikTok video of herself dancing with her granddaughter.

No male is spotted in the clip but you can hear a deep voice giggling in the background and yelling: “Wooo…let’s go!” before the song finishes.

Obviously, Leslie didn’t respond to comments and isn’t wearing a ring to avoid any spoilers, but fans are still confident she was the lucky lady.

“That WOOOO at the end is definitely Gerry!! So happy for you!!” a fan congratulated.

“The WOOOOOOOO was totally GERRRRRY,” a second agreed, while another claimed the “let’s go!” was nothing like the Golden Bachelor.

“The giggle sounds like Gerry but then “Let’s Go” does not at all so…???”
