AMResorts to open second hotel in Costa Rica after taking over Hilton Papagayo Costa Rica Resort and Spa
AMResorts has announced that it has signed a deal to open its second hotel in Costa Rica, Secrets Papagayo Resort and Spa. The hotel management group has taken over the Hilton Papagayo Costa Rica Resort and Spa and it is the second hotel to open in the country, following the opening of the Dreams Las Mareas Costa Rica last year.
AMResorts has announced that it will open a new hotel in Costa Rica, following the signing of a deal to manage the former Hilton Papagayo Costa Rica Resort and Spa.
This will be the hotel management company's second hotel to open in Costa Rica, following the launch of Dreams Las Mareas Costa Rica last year.
AMResorts took over the Hilton Papagayo Costa Rica Resort and Spa on 28th February, 2015 and it will operate as the Papagayo Resort and Spa until May, 2015, when it will then close for six months and undergo extensive renovations to meet the standards of the award-winning Secrets brand.
Alex Zozaya, the CEO of Apple Leisure Group, owners of AMResorts, commented:
"Costa Rica is one of the leading destinations for North American travellers, and the country's sustainable tourism model is drawing attention from those seeking luxury accommodations that still offer a local experience.
"This presents a great opportunity to develop premium, all-inclusive resorts in the region."
The refurbishments will include upgrading the luxury resort's 202 suites and facilities, and introducing AMResorts' signature Unlimited-Luxury concept that includes speciality restaurants, 24-hour room service, pool and beach wait service, and world class spa facilities.
The beachfront hotel will re-open on 11th November, 2015 as the adults-only Secrets Papagayo Resort and Spa, and it will be the 14th hotel in the Secrets Resort and Spas brand.
Situated in the Guanacaste region, Secrets Papagayo Resort and Spa will sit on a pristine beach on the Papagayo Peninsula, just 20 minutes from Liberia International Airport.
Gonzalo del Peon, the President of AMResorts, explained:
"Guests appreciate the opportunity to vacation in unique destinations, and our growth strategy is focused on entering more places where travellers want to be.
"The Papagayo Peninsula is an excellent addition to AMResorts' generous array of beachfront, tropical locations where guests can experience our Unlimited-Luxury concept."
Guanacaste boasts an array of pristine white sand beaches and the thriving Rincon de la Vieja National Park which is home to beautiful cascading waterfalls and a variety of wildlife species such as monkeys, sloths, tapirs, wild cats and hundreds of colourful birds.
Located in Central America, Costa Rica is home to some of the world's most breathtaking natural scenery made up of lush rainforests, volcanoes, soaring mountains, unspoilt beaches, and cascading waterfalls.
