Andaz Costa Rica Residences at Peninsula Papagayo

Peninsula Papagayo's new collection of Andaz-branded residences bring a fresh interpretation of indoor-outdoor living and uncomplicated luxury to a true mecca for outdoor enthusiasts

Peninsula Papagayo, the premier 1,400-acre club and resort community located in Guanacaste on the North Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, and Hyatt Hotels Corporation today announced they will expand their relationship with the development of an innovative collection of Andaz-branded residences at Peninsula Papagayo.

Situated adjacent to the existing Andaz Costa Rica Resort at Peninsula Papagayo, the just-announced collection of Andaz Costa Rica Residences at Peninsula Papagayo will offer 25 fully turnkey, wholly owned seaside villas featuring reimagined indoor-outdoor living, individual lounge pools, and an unsurpassed array of amenities and experiences throughout the Andaz Costa Rica Resort and across the entire 1,400-acre private peninsula. Sales will commence in late 2020 with prices starting in the low US$1-millions. Most residences are expected to be under US$2 million. Construction completion is anticipated late next year.

"Peninsula Papagayo's new collection of Andaz-branded residences bring a fresh interpretation of indoor-outdoor living and uncomplicated luxury to a true mecca for outdoor enthusiasts,” said Donald McGregor of Miami-based Gencom, the developer and co-owner of Peninsula Papagayo. “We wanted to create a fun getaway that was true to the destination and easy to own."

Two- and three-bedroom floor plans will range from 1,400 to 2,100 square feet of air-conditioned interior area. All plans will feature an expansive outdoor living space and private lounge pool. An exclusive set of fifteen residences incorporate spectacular rooftop terraces and open-air living rooms — conceived as nests to enjoy a bird’s-eye view of the bay and star-filled Costa Rica night skies.

Integrated pedestrian paths will link the Andaz Costa Rica Resort and residences, providing convenient access to an expanded fitness center and spa, outdoor workout station, multiple beaches, pools, restaurants, and nearby Marina Papagayo. In-residence dining, daily housekeeping, valet, dry cleaning, laundry, grocery provisioning and off-site transportation will also be available. One of the many features of ownership will also include an optional rental program managed by Hyatt.

Additional benefits will include a membership to the Club at Peninsula Papagayo. The private owner’s club features exceptional beach, golf, tennis, swimming, and social facilities, together with an inspiring calendar of curated classes and special events. An array of outdoor activities will also be available through Papagayo Explorers, the peninsula’s program of exclusive land, ocean, aerial and cultural immersion adventures led by a team of expert guides, naturalists, and translators. Through Papagayo Explorers, owners and their families will play, connect and explore in nature through adventure and exploration-driven experiences celebrating local culture and the natural world.

The area surrounding the new development is a buffer zone for Santa Rosa National Park, part of the Guanacaste Conservation Area—a UNESCO World Heritage site containing one of the most important beaches for sea turtles in the Pacific, and nearly two-thirds of Costa Rica's biodiversity.

"The new Andaz Costa Rica Residences at Peninsula Papagayo promise boundless adventure and exploration in one of the most beautiful and exhilarating places in the world—with the same sense of freedom and spontaneity Costa Rica is famous for," said Steven Dominguez, vice president, global brands, Hyatt. "Envisioned for those seeking to satiate their curiosity about the world and local culture, Andaz Costa Rica Residences at Peninsula Papagayo represent a singular opportunity for immersive, unscripted living.”
