GUANACASTE, Costa Rica (PRWEB) February 06, 2023
Revolution Places, the real estate and hospitality investment arm of Revolution, LLC, and IMI Worldwide Properties, today announced the release of a new luxury residential offering in Latin America, the Waldorf Astoria Residences Guanacaste. Situated on the dramatic cliffside peninsula of Cacique in Costa Rica’s celebrated Guanacaste province, the Waldorf Astoria Residences Guanacaste will feature 19 condominium residences and 22 estate homes, alongside the anticipated 190-key Waldorf Astoria Guanacaste, as the brand’s first debut in Costa Rica. With a focus on sustainability, connection to nature, and premium luxury amenities and experiences, the residential community offers an unparalleled private ownership opportunity in an ecologically rich and visually stunning oceanfront environment.“Anybody that goes to the Cacique peninsula will fall in love with it,” said Steve Case, co-founder of AOL and Chairman and CEO of Revolution. “I’ve traveled the world and there’s something magical about this place. My dream is for Cacique to offer visitors an opportunity to experience the peninsula in residences that reflect the beauty of this location. We have spent more than a decade finding the right partners and plans to honor this special place.”
OWNING A PIECE OF PURA VIDA
Boasting panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and the Bay of Papagayo, the Waldorf Astoria Residences Guanacaste are designed to set a new standard for luxury living. The property’s 19 condominium residences range from two to three bedrooms across 1,509 to 2,209 square feet, with two-bedroom residences starting at $1.62 million and three-bedroom residences at $2.72 million. Buyers seeking larger accommodations can select from 22 estate homes, with floorplans including four-bedroom, two-story estates at 3,996 square feet; five-bedroom, two-story estates at 4,982 square feet; and five-bedroom, three-story estates at 4,996 square feet. Pricing on the estates starts at $5.31 million for the four-bedroom floorplans and $6.37 million for the five-bedroom floorplans. All residences and estates will come fully furnished and owners have the option to include their home in a vacation rental program. The interiors of both the residences and estate homes will seamlessly integrate elements of the surrounding natural environment, featuring organic materials, clean lines, and local architectural influences.“This project is truly one of the most stunning properties we’ve ever had an opportunity to work with and the location on the Cacique peninsula can’t be beat,” says Mike Collins, co-founder and CEO of IMI Worldwide Properties. “With nine of the estate homes and one of the private condominium residences reserved at this time, we’re already seeing incredible demand for this offering and the community that Revolution Places and Waldorf Astoria brand had envisioned.”
At the forefront is the development’s commitment to sustainability and environmentally responsible practices. The site plan for the community prioritizes biophilic design, preserving the unique natural topography and native species, and implementing high-efficiency heating, cooling, and wastewater systems. Revolution Places has partnered with an award-winning team of architects, designers, and planners, including Garnier Arquitectos, Robles Arquitectos, Gensler, and EDSA to bring this vision to life. Residents will enjoy thoughtful design features that blend into the peninsula's natural environment, including water elements throughout the property and a spa built atop a naturally occurring creek. The site plan emphasizes walkability, with all amenities and necessities within a short walk of the residences, and a fleet of electric vehicles available for longer on-property transportation needs.
WORLD-CLASS HOSPITALITY EXCELLENCE
As the brand’s first residential property in Costa Rica, Waldorf Astoria Residences Guanacaste will offer homeowners access to the premium amenities and personalized services synonymous with Waldorf Astoria brand and heritage. Residents will enjoy exclusive hotel amenities, including a beach club, cenote-inspired spa with treehouse-style treatment rooms, multiple restaurants, event facilities, and meeting rooms, and a soothing holistic wellness center complete with a state-of-the-art gym, movement studio, outdoor yoga, and lap and thermal pools.
