Westin hotel expands in the Costa Rica holidays market

Accelerating growth in Latin America, Starwood Hotels & Resorts has returned to the Costa Rica holidays with the opening of The Westin Playa Conchal Resort & Spa in May 2011.

Marking a milestone in Starwood's history, The Westin Playa Conchal Resort & Spa will also be the first all-inclusive resort in Starwood's global portfolio.

The property will undergo extensive renovations to its 406 spacious suites and all public areas.

"We are delighted to once again establish a presence in Costa Rica with next year's opening of The Westin Playa Conchal Resort & Spa, one of four new Westin properties slated to open in Latin America by the end of 2011. The Westin brand is at a pivotal point in its life cycle with an unprecedented opportunity for global growth and well on its way to establishing itself as an international market leader," said Simon Turner, president of global development for Starwood.

The Westin Playa Conchal Resort & Spa is set on one of Costa Rica's most breathtaking beaches, Playa Conchal in Cabo Velas, just 45 minutes from Guanacaste International Airport.

Centered on an expansive lagoon-style pool, the resort offers panoramic Costa Rica holidays featuring beautiful gardens, luxurious suites, thatch-roofed bungalows and breathtaking ocean and forest vistas. Inspiring wellness with its signature Westin Spa, the resort will also offer a variety of outdoor recreation and nightly entertainment.

The resort is located adjacent to the championship Robert Trent Jones II golf facility, and features several restaurants serving both local and international cuisine.

"Starwood is proud to expand the Westin Resorts portfolio with the addition of The Westin Playa Conchal Resort & Spa. Recent growth in the all-inclusive luxury resort market in Mexico and Central America, coupled with increasing demand from our SPG members seeking vacation packages have created fertile conditions for our entry in the all-inclusive market," said Osvaldo Librizzi, president of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Latin America. "Known for its spectacular beaches, volcanoes and tropical forests, Costa Rica is a popular tourist and leisure destination and a terrific choice for the expansion of the Westin brand, which expects to nearly double its portfolio in Latin America by 2014."

Once it opens, the new Westin Playa Conchal Resort & Spa will be the first Starwood property in Costa Rica in 20 years.
