Westin Expands Footprint in Latin America; Costa Rica Resort to Open in May

Accelerating growth in Latin America, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. announced recently its return to Costa Rica with the opening of The Westin Playa Conchal Resort & Spa in May.

Marking a milestone in Starwood’s history, The Westin Playa Conchal Resort & Spa will also be the first all-inclusive resort in Starwood’s global portfolio. Starwood and Desarrollos Hoteleros Guanagaste, a fully owned subsidiary of Reserva Conchal, signed a management agreement to re-flag the Paradisus Playa Conchal Resort in Guanacaste as a Westin. The property will undergo extensive renovations to its 406 spacious suites and all public areas.

“We are delighted to once again establish a presence in Costa Rica with next year’s opening of The Westin Playa Conchal Resort & Spa, one of four new Westin properties slated to open in Latin America by the end of 2011,” said Simon Turner, president of global development for Starwood, in a written release.
