Reserva Conchal Expands Into Branded Homes (and More)Reserva Conchal has long been recognized as one of Costa Rica’s finest hospitality and residential communities, featuring 2,200 acres of tropical forest, luxurious homes, an award-winning golf course and a 1.6-mile stretch of pristine white-sand beach.

This unique development is known for its exquisite natural setting, its environmentally friendly practices and its appeal to people on vacation, people looking for an exciting place to live, and investors seeking a home that can fetch top dollar as a vacation rental.

Reserva Conchal currently offers nine residential communities, along with an array of impressive amenities, including a 100-acre nature reserve, swimming pools, spas and hiking trails. It has long been known for the 406-room, Marriott-branded Westin Hotel, an all-inclusive, eco-friendly retreat.

Last year, Reserva Conchal opened a spectacular, $52 million, 150-room W Hotel. The W won the 2018 HOLA (Hotel Opportunities Latin America) award for hotel development of the year, edging out a Four Seasons in São Paulo and a Grand Hyatt in Bogotá.

And early next year, Reserva Conchal will be offering 14 exquisite new lots for homes branded by the iconic W. Owners of W-branded homes will have full access to all the amenities of the hotel (including room service), and their homes can become suites in the W’s rental pool, making them excellent investments.

Reserva Conchal’s first foray into branded residences means a globally recognized luxury hotel like the W is lending its imprimatur to privately owned homes in recognition of the excellence of their design.

Cocobolo is another new residential development, featuring five high-end lots with breathtaking ocean views that are planned for release in January 2020.

Of the nine existing residentials, only two have unsold lots or new homes.  Llama del Bosque, featuring lots for the construction of stand-alone homes in the heart of Reserva Conchal, has four unsold lots and a spec home.

Aromo is another stunning development, with six new townhomes and three private lots, each with breathtaking Pacific Ocean and nature views. Only two harmoniously designed townhomes, plus a spacious lot with the capacity to build one or two homes, are left for sale in this exclusive gated community.

Plus, this being Costa Rica, Reserva Conchal is getting into the zipline business when its adventure park opens in the summer of 2020. It will feature horseback riding and other attractions, all with Reserva Conchal’s eco-friendly signature.

Ronald Zurcher, Costa Rica’s most celebrated architect, designed not only the new W but also the homes that will bear its name. One model will be built next year for sale, leaving 13 lots where you can build your own.

Reserva Conchal is also now partnering with Troon, the world’s leading golf club management company. And its original master plan was developed by Edsa, a global leader in the formulation of master plans for luxury developments.

The amenities at Reserva Conchal include an 18-hole championship golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones II that is widely considered the best course in Costa Rica, plus the two spas and 13 restaurants that both the Westin and the W offer.

Also, Reserva Conchal’s swanky beach club has its own restaurant, bar and swimming pools, plus a golf club. A half-dozen hiking trails allow guests to explore this pristine natural area, along with a wildlife refuge that’s open to the public and protected by the government but owned by Reserva Conchal

An on-site nursery provided all the landscaping, trees and bushes for the new W Hotel. Reserva Conchal’s environmental cred is bolstered by centers for recycling and composting, plus a desalination plant. And a new organic garden aspires to provide produce for both hotels, as well as to sell to the public.

And that’s without mentioning the direct access to Playa Conchal, one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica, with “sand” consisting largely of crushed white seashells.

The owner of Reserva Conchal, Florida Ice and Farm Co. (FIFCO), is the largest publicly traded company in Costa Rica, best known for beverages like Imperial, Pilsen and Cristal, and the branch called Florida Capitales offers financing for the purchase of land here.

Reserva Conchal is located just one hour from the international airport in Liberia and is a short drive from the popular vacation destinations of Tamarindo and Flamingo, which offer a wealth of activities, including sportfishing, scuba diving, snorkeling, ziplining and much more.

“This is a great place to be and a great place to invest,” said sales executive Mariel Salazar, “and with the financing we offer, you really have access to a better way of life.”
