TORONTO — Planet Hollywood Beach Resort Costa Rica has opened its doors as the first ever all-inclusive resort by the Planet Hollywood brand.
The property invites guests to ‘Vacation Like A Star’, with 294 luxury suites, each complete with ‘Phabulous Beds’ with a hand-crafted custom mattress with bedding developed exclusively for Planet Hollywood guests. There are seven globally-infused restaurants and six bars, a PUMPED Fitness Center, PH Spa, two swimming pools and a splash zone.
The resort is located at the base of the Papagayo Peninsula in the Guanacaste Region.
Earlier this year Sunwing Travel Group signed its blockbuster deal with Planet Hollywood, announcing immediate plans for two resorts with more resorts to come. Now that Planet Hollywood Beach Resort Costa Rica has opened, the second resort, Planet Hollywood Resort Cancun, is slated to debut in late spring 2019.
“It’s been an amazing journey leading my all-star cast of employees to prepare for the grand opening of Planet Hollywood Beach Resort in Costa Rica,” said General Manager Jonathan Iriarte. “With the perfect line-up of features, we can confidently say that our guests will receive the full Vacation Like A Star experience.”
A curated list of excursions, PH Experiences, allows guests to explore the Papagayo Gulf, from visiting life-like dinosaurs in an open-air jungle environment, to sailing and snorkeling in the Pacific Ocean’s clear blue waters.
For young guests, Stars Kids Club offers fun and educational experiences such as Planet Hollywood TV, Walk of Fame Scavenger Hunt, Starlets Hall of Fame Party and more.
Meanwhile an array of signature brand offerings includes the Your Soundtrack music program where guests can choose a music theme to create the soundtrack of their vacation, the Main Event Guarantee allowing guests to catch all major events in real time, and Plugged In, providing guests with unlimited high-speed WiFi resort wide. There’s also Star Class, ‘delivering the full star experience’ with exclusive amenities and high-level service.
