Costa Rica says "Bienvenido" to Planet Hollywood
Planet Hollywood is set to join Costa Rica's beach landscape later this year. According to a press release by Sunwing Travel Group (STG), a new Planet Hollywood Beach Resort will be erected in Manzanillo Beach on the Papagayo Gulf in the northwest section of the country. The resort is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
STG is an integrated travel company that signed an agreement with the Hollywood star-backed chain to increase its global footprint. In the press release, the company stated, " The Planet Hollywood brand has always been about delivering unique and memorable experiences that translate into lifelong memories for our guests,” said Robert Earl, Planet Hollywood’s Founder and Chairman. “I am so excited to partner with Sunwing Travel Group and cannot wait to get started with the first spectacular locations in Costa Rica and Cancun. This is the perfect opportunity to bring ‘fame’ a lot closer to all customers by leveraging Sunwing Travel Group’s proven track record of successfully operating and rapidly expanding premier hotel brands.”
The resort, STG's first under the new agreement, will be a place for visitors to interact with Hollywood memorabilia and to enjoy entertainment-themed facilities. The resort will use technology such as touch-screen digital displays to keep guests updated on events and activities, and STG is making a substantial investment in everything from music architecture to creating a Hollywood atmosphere for guests to experience a one-of-a-kind vacation.
