Hilton has announced the signing of the Botánika Osa Peninsula to Curio – A Collection by Hilton, slated to open in 2018.
The resort, developed by Sinergo Development Group, will be located near the Golfo Dulce on the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica. The rainforest is home to 2.5 percent of the world’s biodiversity and over half of the species in Costa Rica.
The eco-friendly Botánika Osa Peninsula will consist of four main buildings, containing guest rooms and suites with a full kitchen, and an open-air courtyard in each. The property will also have an outdoor natural pool, pool bar, fitness center, technology lounge, spa with over 30 “rainforest treatments,” 1,550-square-foot conference center, event lawn, golf cart concierge service, café gift shop, juice bar, and a restaurant and bar.
Guests will be able to walk the nature trails on property, or use one of the complimentary bicycles to explore nearby beaches and the village of Puerto Jimenez.
The new build, located on the former location of the Crocodile Bay Resort, is being planned with local biologists to ensure the construction is in harmony with the environment. Nearby, Crocodile Bay Marina offers sport fishing from a fleet of 40 private boats. Botánika will have certified in-house staff providing tours like the Sea Turtle Rescue Tour, jungle night walks, surfing, snorkeling, gold panning, whale watching, and sport fishing.
The property will be easily accessible with a five-minute drive from the Puerto Jimenez Airport.
The interior of the buildings will be designed by DAS Concepts; the LEED Certifiedarchitecture will be led by Gensler; and the landscaping will be designed by GCH.
As part of the Hilton portfolio, Botánika Osa Peninsula, Curio - A Collection by Hilton will participate in Hilton HHonors, the award-winning guest-loyalty program for Hilton’s 13 distinct hotel brands.
