Waldorf Astoria Residences in Costa Rica

Indulge in the ultimate luxury living at Waldorf Astoria Residences Costa Rica, perched atop Guanacaste’s dramatic cliffsides.

Balanced atop the dramatic cliffsides and lush seclusion of Guanacaste’s Cacique Peninsula (also known as Punta Cacique, or Cacique Point), the new Waldorf Astoria resort and its exclusive Waldorf Astoria Residences Costa Rica welcome a select few to the rhythms of nature, barefoot luxury, and a lifestyle of leisure that’s well earned. 

For here – overlooking the sun-dappled Pacific Ocean and the stunning Gulf of Papagayo, just 5 minutes to Playa Hermosa and 25 minutes to Liberia International Airport – the Waldorf Astoria Costa Rica sits just above the lapping Pacific, on a dramatic cliffside peninsula that rivals Europe’s most exclusive cliffside resorts, in an ecologically rich and wildly diverse locale that could only be Costa Rica. 

 Welcome to a fresh perspective on life and adventure – to an invitation to sophistication and elegance, without pretense. To privacy that’s connected and convenience that’s exhilarating. Welcome to wonder reborn, along the world’s richest coast and one of the happiest places on Earth.

 As of 2023, Waldorf Astoria Residences Costa Rica are available for reservation. Only one condo residence is still available (April 2023). Completion for condo residences and estate homes is currently scheduled for late 2024 through early 2025.

Cenote-Inspired Spa 

The Waldorf Astoria’s cenote-inspired spa will offer eight indoor treatment rooms and three outdoor treatment rooms with treehouse-inspired design.

Barefoot Luxury Lifestyle

All residences at the Waldorf Astoria are designed around a lifestyle of barefoot luxury, which embodies the resort’s tropical environs. Blending indoor and outdoor environments in seamless transition, the community’s residences incorporate natural building materials, modern color palettes, clean lines, and details that reflect and celebrate Costa Rica’s aesthetic and design language.

Costa Rican Spirit

It’s not just a design language: Costa Rica’s spirit imbues the Waldorf Astoria and its residences with a life-affirming spirit of being, rather than merely doing. Here, nature surrounds you and panoramas unfold from every angle of view, inviting you to immerse yourself in the spirit of paradise and amenities worthy of the Waldorf Astoria name.

Multigenerational Experiences

The Waldorf Astoria Costa Rica has been created with multi-generational experiences in mind, to delight every family member – from the young to the young-at-heart. The resort itself promises to be accessible to all, via all-electric community transportation, walking paths, and other design features. We will update this space as more information becomes available.

Waldorf Astoria Architecture

Designed by the award-winning team of architects and landscape architects from Gensler, EDSA, and Garnier+Robles Architects, the Waldorf Astoria Costa Rica emphasizes architecture that integrates with and complements its environment, from the natural topography to the native flora and fauna that surround. 


The Waldorf Astoria Residences Costa Rica are carefully crafted to connect residents to this natural and wondrous setting, via architectural and design details that enfold the lush, natural environment into everyday living – a true art, considering the dramatic cliffside location and wildly varied conditions that present during the dry vs. wet seasons.


The result is a community that evokes the cliffside resort style of Europe, in a place that could only be Costa Rica. Here, residences blend seamlessly with their surrounding landscapes, not just enduring but rather celebrating the wild beauty and startling backdrops of the Cacique Peninsula and the Gulf of Papagayo


Waldorf Astoria Sustainability

The Waldorf Astoria in Costa Rica is a love letter to the country’s biodiversity. With an emphasis on environmental efficiency (including natural lighting and ventilation), connection with nature, walkability, sustainable transportation (the community operates a fleet of electric vehicles), and the local economy, the resort and community integrate sustainability into every aspect of daily living. 


The Waldorf Astoria Residences Costa Rica employ biophilic design to not change, but rather integrate seamlessly with the natural topography, biological habitats, and wildlife corridors. In addition, the residences use only high-efficiency heating, cooling, and wastewater systems.
