Situated on the dramatic cliffside peninsula of Cacique in Costa Rica’s celebrated Guanacaste province, home to one of the world’s only “Blue Zones,” the Waldorf Astoria Residences Guanacaste has officially launched as the brand’s debut in Costa Rica, bringing an unparalleled private ownership opportunity to the ecologically rich and visually stunning oceanfront environment. Boasting panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and the Bay of Papagayo, the Waldorf Astoria Residences Guanacaste features 19 condominium residences and 22 estate homes alongside the anticipated 190-key Waldorf Astoria Guanacaste. The property is only 25 minutes from the Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport (also known as the Liberia International Airport), which offers direct flight access from San Francisco International Airport as well as more than 20 other international and domestic locations.
Designed with sustainability in mind, the residences and community set a new standard for luxury living, prioritizing biophilic design, preserving the unique natural topography and native species, and implementing high-efficiency heating, cooling, and wastewater systems. The property has partnered with an award-winning team of architects, designers, and planners, including Garnier Arquitectos, Robles Arquitectos, Gensler, and EDSA, to bring this vision to life, seamlessly integrating elements of the surrounding natural environment into the community. This thoughtful design continues throughout, allowing homeowners access to amenities only steps from the residences, including water elements, a cenote-inspired spa built atop a naturally occurring creek, a beach club, multiple restaurants, event facilities and meeting rooms, and a soothing holistic wellness center complete with a state-of-the-art gym, movement studio, outdoor yoga, and lap and thermal pools.
The property’s 19 condominium residences range from two to three bedrooms across 1,509 to 2,209 square feet, with two-bedroom residences starting at $1.62 million and three-bedroom residences at $2.72 million. Buyers seeking larger accommodations can select from 22 estate homes, with floorplans 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. Pricing on the estates starts at $5.31 million for the four-bedroom floorplans and $6.37 million for the five-bedroom floorplans. All residences and estates come fully furnished, and owners have the option to include their home in a vacation rental program.
