Costa Rica's Punta Islita hotel joins Mariott's Autograph Collection

The Punta Islita Costa Rica Resort is now the latest member of Marriott's Autograph Collection. The decision to join the Marriott programme was driven by a desire to attract more guests and benefit from Marriott's resources while at the same time retaining the resort's independence and stay true to its vision.

Costa Rica's Punta Islita hotel joins Mariott's Autograph Collection

Costa Rica's Hotel Punta Islita, in Guanacaste has become a member of Marriott's Autograph Collection- an affiliate programme between Marriott and a group of approximately 60 hotel properties from around the world.

The move to partner with Marriott is in an effort to give Hotel Punta Islita greater visbility among travellers interested booking a stay at a luxury beach resort while on their Costa Rica holidays while maintaining Punta Islita's independence.

Grupo Islita CEO Gustavo Segura, commented:

"Autograph provides us with a great opportunity to get better access to the marketplace while maintaining our mission. We continue to have control of our operations while tapping into Marriott's sales and marketing resources."

One of the key resources has proven to be Marriott's reservations system with 750 reservations coming via the Marriott system in the first month of Punta Islita's Autograph membership alone.

It is not only the hotel that benefits from the Autograph membership with Marriott Rewards members now able to earn and spend points for their stays at Punta Islita.

Furthermore, the hotel's strong sense of social responsibility means that there is also a positive ripple effect for local community. CEO Segura pointed out that his firm works towards "complete integration with the community" noting that at the Hotel Punta Islita they offer guests "a destination where its difficult to tell where the resort ends and the community begins". The resort's staff is made up almost entirely of locals added to that fact that community craftsmen, fishermen, farmers and a restaurant all benefit from the increased interest in the Punta Islita hotel.

Guests at Punta Islita can choose from its standard and deluxe rooms or, for those who are interested in something a bit more indulgent, there is always the option of booking a stay in a junior suite or even a private villa. Situated two and half hour drive away from Liberia Airport or four hours from San Jose, guests can opt for a short 40 minute flight to the resort's private airstrip.

Once there guests can take advantage of the on site amenities which include a spa, golf courts, tennis courts, an infinity pool, restaurants and bars. With the Samara beach a stone's throw away guests can also enjoy horseback riding along the beach, kayaking, surfing and even have a unique turtle watching experience.

The Punta Islita offers everything needed for an unforgettable Costa Rica escape and with Marriott now in their corner more holidaymakers will come to know the Punta Islita name.
