W Costa Rica to Debut in 2019

Starwood Hotels & Resorts has signed an agreement to manage the 151-room W Costa Rica - Reserva Conchal, opening in 2019. The first beachside W in Latin America, the hotel will be in a mixed-used development on the Pacific coast in the province of Guanacaste. The property will be about 45 minutes from Liberia/Daniel Oduber Quiros International Airport and near a variety of outdoor recreational facilities, including a Robert Trent Jones II golf course.

On-site amenities will include a signature restaurant; a W Living Room, with cocktails and weekly events; a destination bar; and an Away spa and WET deck, with an infinity pool. The extent of the hotel's meeting space has yet to be determined.
