Hyatt Hotels Corporation will introduce its Hyatt Centric brand to Costa Rica. Hyatt Centric Escazu, San José, is expected to open in 2024. This will be the third Hyatt Centric hotel in Central America.
Plaza Tempo was the chosen location for this new lifestyle hotel. The property will feature 161 modern guestrooms and suites, a large fitness center, an ample event space, and a fully equipped coffee bar and lounge. In addition, the hotel will offer an all-day dining restaurant and a full-service bar.
Just 10 minutes from downtown San Jose and 10 miles from the Juan Santamaria International Airport, the hotel will be located within walking distance of the city’s top dining destinations, modern shopping plazas and lively entertainment venues.
“As Hyatt seeks further growth of its lifestyle brand portfolio in key markets that matter to our guests, World of Hyatt members, and customers, we are thrilled to team up with Caribe Hospitality to continue the expansion of the Hyatt Centric brand in Central America,” mentioned Camilo Bolaños senior vice president of development, Latin America and the Caribbean, Hyatt.
The opening of Hyatt Centric Escazu San Jose will build on Hyatt’s intentional brand growth strategy in key leisure markets, joining Hyatt Centric Guatemala City and Hyatt Centric San Salvador in Central America.
“Each Hyatt Centric property serves as a launchpad for guests to explore and discover the destination in which it resides. We look forward to the hotel welcoming savvy travelers eager to immerse themselves in the vibrant Costa Rican culture,” Bolaños added.
This is possible thanks to signing a management agreement with local developer Caribe Hospitality.
“We are excited to work alongside Hyatt on this development and bring the first Hyatt Centric hotel to Costa Rica. With Caribe Hospitality’s expert knowledge of the market and Hyatt’s operational excellence, Hyatt Centric Escazu San Jose is sure to be a sought-after destination for locals and travelers alike, and the perfect addition to our existing and ever-growing portfolio in Costa Rica,” concluded Daniel Campos CEO of Caribe Hospitality.
