Developers of Golfito Marina Village & Resort, Costa Rica’s newest world-class yachting, sportfishing, eco-tourism destination and high-end resort property, have announced that construction of the first phase is officially underway.
The project, located in the town of Golfito, on the southern Pacific coast on Golfito Bay, offers a unique location previously inaccessible to travellers seeking high-end accommodation in a truly untapped travel destination.
Golfito Marina Village & Resort ‘s safe harbour is the only approved drop-off and pick-up zone for yacht transport ships on the west coast of Central and South America. The town of Golfito has been nicknamed the most biologically intense place on Earth by National Geographic.
Working closely with local authorities and the community, developers are bringing an eco-minded approach to the project.
“We are delivering a world-class luxury resort destination to one of the most beautiful places on earth,” says Noam Schwartz, principal of Hacienda El Dorado, the development team behind Golfito Marina Village & Resort.
“Golfito and the surrounding areas are environmentally sacred places, which we will embrace through our design. This truly will be a luxury vacation destination unlike any other,” commented Schwartz.
The first phase of the deep-water marina is projected to be completed in 2015 and will include 50 out of 132 total yacht slips, featuring private and secure berths designated for yachts up to 100m.
The marina will also feature a number of amenities, including yacht club, restaurants, on-site customs and immigration, a full service boatyard, accommodations for yacht captains and crew, and more.
Residential and resort amenity development will begin soon after marina construction commences and will feature villas with views of Golfito Bay. Resort amenities will include an open-air spa, fitness facilities, swimming pools and an island restaurant with a night club.
Hacienda El Dorado, the development team behind Golfito Marina Village & Resort and its principals, have been in the real estate development business since 1978. The company and its principals have invested in and developed other projects in Costa Rica over the past 13 years and remain optimistic about the country’s future as a top global holiday destination.
