Construction started on new five-star hotel in Guanacaste, Costa Rica

Costa Rica will receive a brand new luxury resort by the end of 2014 after SunVesta Swiss Holding Group announced that construction has begun on a property in the Gulf of Papagayo.

The new hotel will be located in the country's north-western province of Guanacaste and will feature 328 deluxe guest rooms, nine restaurants, eight bars, a beach club, and meeting facilities.

Named as the Paradisus Papagayo Bay Resort and Luxury Villas, the hotel will replace the Paradisus Playa Conchal hotel and it is being built in cooperation with the flagship brand of Melia Hotels International, Paradisus Resorts.

The luxury resort will be built on 21 hectares of land and according to the press release, its accommodation, facilities, and services "meets all required specifications to qualify as five-star hotel".

In May this year, the President and CEO of the SunVesta Group, Josef Mettler, said:

"SunVesta and DIA are thrilled to be partnering with Paradisus Resorts on this project, where we will combine high-end luxury with a sustainable eco-friendly development concept, resulting in a world-class eco-luxury resort with the highest service standards.

"We believe in investing in prime locations and working with the best companies to achieve the best ecological and financial results, and this project couldn't be a better example of our credo."

Guanacaste is the perfect destination for tourists who are looking for sunshine and fun in Costa Rica. The region boasts an array of pristine white sandy beaches and the Rincon de la Vieja National Park which is home to beautiful cascading waterfalls and thriving wildlife.

In Costa Rica, holidaymakers can go surfing, hike up volcanoes, enjoy a night out in Tamarindo, or visit the beautiful Lake Arenal.

Costa Rica is a Central American country that is bordered by the Caribbean Sea to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west. It is famous for its collection of breathtaking natural landscapes and the nation boasts over 1000 miles of stunning coastline, lush tropical rainforests, dense dry forests, active volcanoes, high mountains, white and black sand beaches, and several nature reserves which are teeming with wildlife and vibrant flora and fauna.

The country was ranked as the happiest place in the world in the 2012 edition of the New Economics Foundation's Happy Planet.
