By: Caribbean Journal Staff - January 19, 2017

Hard Rock is expanding in the region.

Hard Rock International has announced plans to open a new Hard Rock Hotel in Costa Rica, the Hard Rock Hotel Papagayo, Costa Rica.

The hotel is slated to open in early 2019 in collaboration with Sunwing Travel Group, the largest tour operator in North America.

“Costa Rica has seen a steady rise in international arrivals and the country’s worldwide appeal aligns with our development strategy deeply rooted in expanding into desirable locations,” said Marco Roca, global head of hotel development at Hard Rock International. “We look forward to electrifying the destination with a musically-charged differentiated product never before seen in the area.”

The 294-room hotel will be located about 30 minutes from Liberia International Airport and will be managed by Blue Diamond Resorts.

“We’re excited to bring such a world-class, award-winning brand to Papagayo that will raise the standard of cool and contemporary for Costa Rican all-inclusive resorts,” says Jordi Pelfort – Managing Director, Blue Diamond Resorts for the Sunwing Hotel Group’s Travel Division. “With a passionate fan base and proven track record of delivering memorable experiences through landmark hotels and resorts, we look forward to collaborating with Hard Rock International and welcoming visitors of all ages to Costa Rica’s first Hard Rock Hotel.”

Hard Rock operates 24 hotels around the world in addition to 11 casinos and 175 cafes.
