San José, Costa Rica. October 10, 2023
We are thrilled to announce Everty’s recent acquisition of Drake Bay Getaway, an exquisite luxury hotel nestled in the heart of Bahía Drake, Puntarenas.
This marks our fourth investment in the Costa Rican hospitality sector, complementing our existing portfolio, which includes the ultra-luxurious villa, The Hive, in Papagayo, the breathtaking Casa Anjalí villa in Manuel Antonio, and the recently revitalized Hotel Koora in the heart of Monteverde.
Currently, this hotel boasts five luxurious private bungalows immersed in the midst of nature, just steps away from the beach, offering unparalleled wellness experiences and breathtaking views of the sea and mountains. Our open-air restaurant showcases a fresh menu inspired by Costa Rican culinary traditions, creatively fused with avant-garde flavors and premium locally sourced ingredients.
Next year, our resort will embark on an expansive journey, increasing the total number of bungalows to 20, introducing a new restaurant, and enhancing our pool area. This represents a total investment of $8.5 million, leading to the creation of at least 25 direct job positions and numerous indirect opportunities. Everty remains committed to supporting the Costa Rican economy and investing in premium real estate markets that promote sustainable growth.
“We are delighted to welcome Drake Bay Getaway into our portfolio of hospitality offerings in Costa Rica. We are determined to continue providing the unique and personalized service that this hotel has been known for, while elevating the guest experience with these expanded facilities. Moreover, Bahía Drake is a true gem within Costa Rica, making it an exceptional destination for international tourists,” shared Harold Chamberlain, CEO of Everty.
In alignment with the Bahía Drake region, which host 2.5% of the world´s biodiversity, renowned architect Rodrigo Carazo will lead this expansion, infusing innovative designs that seamlessly blend with nature, drawing inspiration from the graceful curves of falling tree leaves and the rhythmic ebb and flow of ocean waves. Materials chosen for this endeavor, such as wood and other eco-conscious options, will be selected with minimal environmental impact in mind.
