The First Appearance of Waldorf Astoria in Costa Rica

Located on the striking cliffside peninsula of Cacique in Costa Rica’s famed Guanacaste province, which is known for being one of the world’s “Blue Zones,” the Waldorf Astoria Residences Guanacaste has officially debuted as the brand’s first venture in Costa Rica, providing a unique opportunity for private ownership in the environmentally rich and visually captivating oceanfront setting. Featuring sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean and the Bay of Papagayo, the Waldorf Astoria Residences Guanacaste includes 19 condo residences and 22 luxury homes alongside the much-anticipated 190-room Waldorf Astoria Guanacaste. The property is conveniently situated just 25 minutes away from the Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport (also known as the Liberia International Airport), which offers convenient access with direct flights from San Francisco International Airport and over 20 other international and domestic destinations.

With a focus on sustainability, the residences and community aim to set a new benchmark for opulent living by emphasizing bio-inspired design and the preservation of the natural topography and indigenous species, while incorporating efficient heating, cooling, and wastewater systems. The development has collaborated with an esteemed team of architects, designers, and planners, such as Garnier Arquitectos, Robles Arquitectos, Gensler, and EDSA, to bring this concept to fruition, seamlessly blending elements of the surrounding natural environment into the community. This mindful design extends to the extensive amenities available steps away from the residences, including water features, a spa inspired by cenotes built above a natural creek, a beach club, various dining options, event spaces, and a serene holistic wellness center with a cutting-edge gym, movement studio, outdoor yoga areas, and lap and thermal pools.

The 19 condo residences at the property range from two to three bedrooms, spanning 1,509 to 2,209 square feet, with two-bedroom units starting at $1.62 million and three-bedroom units at $2.72 million. For those seeking larger living spaces, there are 22 luxury homes to choose from, including four-bedroom, two-story estates at 3,996 square feet; five-bedroom, two-story estates at 4,982 square feet; and five-bedroom, three-story estates at 4,996 square feet. Prices for these estates start at $5.31 million for the four-bedroom layouts and $6.37 million for the five-bedroom layouts. All residences and estates are delivered fully furnished, and owners have the option to enroll their property in a vacation rental program.

Waldorf Astoria Residences Guanacaste is a vision brought to life by the teams at Revolution Places, the real estate and hospitality investment division of Revolution, LLC – spearheaded by Steve Case, the co-founder of AOL and the Chairman and CEO of Revolution – and IMI Worldwide Properties. Sales of the residences are exclusively handled by IMI Worldwide Properties. The groundbreaking for Waldorf Astoria Residences Guanacaste is scheduled for Q2 of 2023, with completion expected by Q4 of 2024.
