Rosewood Hotels & Resorts® has been appointed by Aldesa to manage Rosewood Papagayo in Costa Rica, which is scheduled to open in 2019. This luxury retreat will be situated on the northwest coast of Costa Rica within the province of Guanacaste which is renowned for its tropical forests, diverse wildlife and picturesque beaches.
Located just 20 minutes’ drive from Liberia International Airport, the resort will be nestled into the hillside which gently cascades down to a golden-sand beach and the azure waters of the Pacific Ocean. Guests will enjoy panoramic views over the surrounding jungle canopy and the Gulf of Papagayo.
Situated within a forested setting, the resort will offer 180 accommodations including 130 guestrooms and suites in addition to 50 residences. The accommodations are designed to make the most of the natural surroundings, with features such as open-air living rooms, large terraces and plunge pools. The suites will include seven two-storey treehouses whose striking, contemporary design will bring a sense of delight and romance.
Designed and built by Dallas-based architects, HKS, Rosewood Papagayo will be in keeping with Rosewood’s core philosophy of A Sense of Place® and will use indigenous materials and locally inspired artwork throughout the property. The resort will have direct beach access and two swimming pools in addition to a fitness center and the brand’s signature Sense, A Rosewood Spa. Dining options will include a poolside bar and grill, a restaurant offering informal all-day dining, a bar and a speciality restaurant.
