Auberge enters C. America with Costa Rica management agreement

Auberge Resorts Collection, an owner and operator of boutique luxury hotels, resorts, residences and private clubs, has announced plans to manage Hacienda AltaGracia, which opened in June 2015, in Perez Zeledon, in the southern region of Costa Rica. The hotel will be rebranded as Hacienda AltaGracia, an Auberge Resort, beginning in July 2015.

The hotel, originally conceived as a family retreat and coffee farm, is owned by Costa Rican native Alberto J. Esquivel and offers 50 hacienda-style casitas starting from 1,173 square feet.
"After all these years and my personal history creating it, Hacienda AltaGracia is very dear to me and I could not be happier that it will become the newest Auberge resort of exceptional character and spirit," said Esquivel.

The resort joins seven other resorts in the Auberge Resorts Collection portfolio and marks the brand’s first foray into Central America as its fourth international resort following Nanuku Auberge Resort Fiji and Malliouhana in Anguilla, which joined the portfolio in November 2014.
