Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts is headed to Costa Rica, as Hilton on Tuesday announced the signing of a new property in Guanacaste. The new-build Waldorf Astoria Guanacaste is currently under construction and expected to open in 2025 with 190 guest rooms and 25 Waldorf Astoria branded residences.
Upon arrival, guests will be greeted in “El Pueblo,” the lobby area and hub for guests to relax, socialize and unwind. Guests can expect a selection of food and beverage offerings, including a signature restaurant and bar, a specialty outlet and a gelato shop. Beyond these, Waldorf Astoria Guanacaste’s amenities will include a holistic wellness center with a gym, movement studio, outdoor yoga, and lap and thermal pools. The cenote-inspired spa will have eight treatment rooms, plus three outdoor treatment rooms emulating a tree house, along with a variety of signature Waldorf Astoria Spa treatments. Younger travelers can indulge in a range of the resort’s family-friendly activities, including a kids center and teen’s club.
Good to know: For groups and events, the property will offer approximately 10,000 square feet of meeting and event facilities, including indoor and outdoor space, an event lawn and a ceremonial pavilion for weddings.
Waldorf Astoria Guanacaste is part of the Cacique Costa Rica community, which offers retail, residences and wellness experiences. Guests will have easy access to volcanic landscapes, intimate beach coves and tropical forests. The destination-inspired barefoot luxury resort will also have convenient access to Guanacaste’s international airport (Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport) as well as two nearby beach towns with lively restaurants, bars and local shops.
