The World of Hyatt brand is expanding in Central America with the announcement of a new property coming to Costa Rica in just a few years.
Here’s what you need to know!
New Hotel Becomes Hyatt Centric’s First in Costa Rica
Hyatt has announced that it would open a new hotel in Costa Rica, the Hyatt Centric Escazu San Jose, in 2024.
The hotel marks Hyatt’s first foray of the Hyatt Centric brand in Costa Rica and becomes the third in Central America. The chain has been increasingly expanding across Latin America and the Caribbean and announced that it intended to add more than 20 new hotels in the region through 2024.
The Hyatt Centric Escazu San Jose will be located in a mixed-use complex and feature more than 160 rooms and suites. Amenities include an all-day dining restaurant, bar, fitness space, and 4,000 square feet of event space.
The property will be located just 10 minutes from downtown San Jose and only 10 miles from Juan Santamaria International Airport (SJO).
“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,” said Camilo Bolaños, Senior Vice President of Development, Latin America and the Caribbean at Hyatt.
The Hyatt Centric brand focuses on flexible spaces that can be used for work and play, and Hyatt puts these hotels in central locations.
Already, Hyatt has 2 Hyatt Centric locations in Central America: the Hyatt Centric Guatemala City and the Hyatt Centric San Salvador in El Salvador, both of which are Category 2 World of Hyatt hotels.
When it opens, the Hyatt Centric Escazu San Jose will join 10 other World of Hyatt properties in Costa Rica, many of which are Small Luxury Hotels of the World hotels. Other properties include the Category 5 Andaz Costa Rica Resort at Peninsula Papagayo and Category 1 Hyatt Place San Jose/Pinares.
Unlike other U.S. hotel chains, Hyatt isn’t known for having the most considerable presence in Costa Rica and Central America, but it seems like that’s about to change with the announcement of a new property in the heart of San Jose and other properties in the pipeline coming later in the future!
