Andaz Heads to Costa Rica With Andaz Papagayo to Open in 2013
Time for one our favorite topics of 2010 so far—Andaz! Only this time we're not talking Andaz Wall Street, Fifth Avenue, or even San Diego. It's time for Hyatt's hip little sister to take a trip to Costa Rica. That's right, this week Hyatt announced that Andaz Papagayo would open on the Península Papagayo in 2013.
The area is alreadly home to other resorts like the Four Seasons, but this will be the first Andaz property in Latin America. Given the brand's love for all things local, we look forward to this hotel's region-specific quirks, design, and food.
So far we haven't seen any renderings or teasers (we'll be sure to bring those to you as soon as we can), but we can tell you that Andaz Papagayo will have two restaurants, a beach club, spa, gym, and access to the nearby Marina Papagayo.
And let's not forget, instead of a narrow gray street full of the bankers who led us into a recession, this Andaz will be located on a slice of stunning coastline with warm water, and gorgeous black and white sand. No suits allowed. (Or at least we hope.)
