RockResorts International, LLC – a subsidiary of Vail Resorts, Inc. – announced plans to expand and enhance its collection of luxury resorts with the addition of the Alma del Pacifico Hotel.
The hotel is an existing beachfront Costa Rican property currently named Xandari by the Pacific.
Vail Resorts' lodging division took over management of hotel operations on Tuesday. After the holiday season, the hotel’s name will change from Xandari by the Pacific Resort and Spa on Playa Esterillos Estes to Alma del Pacifico Hotel.
Alma del Pacifico Hotel will continue to operate and welcome guests this winter. During spring and summer 2011, a thorough renovation of the property is planned for all common areas, guestrooms, the spa, and food and beverage outlets. The renovation will be followed by the re-launch of the property under the RockResorts brand with the official name of Alma del Pacifico Hotel, A RockResort.
RockResorts also will manage all hospitality and lodging operations at the adjoining Del Pacifico at Esterillos master planned residential development, including that development’s existing property management program and certain commercial activities.
Future plans at Del Pacifico at Esterillos include an equestrian center, 18-hole golf course, boutique hotel and additional residential units.
