|PAPAGAYO, Costa Rica (April 23, 2007)
– Kirchert Pakonen Development and Regent Hotels & Resorts have selected
the internationally-renowned spa consultancy Blu Spas to create and manage
the luxury spa at La Punta Papagayo, a new 60-acre, five-star resort development
featuring a luxury Regent hotel, private villas, estate homes and a retail
village. Blu Spas has been a pioneer in creating luxury spas that
capture the beauty and serenity of indigenous settings, paired with exceptional
therapies also influenced by local cultures and environments.
“Blu Spas is a great match for La Punta Papagayo,”
said Blaine Kirchert of Kirchert Pakonen Development. “We stated
from the beginning that one of our key goals was to introduce a level of
spa services and treatments never before seen in Costa Rica, and we are
delighted that Blu Spas is on board to help us achieve that goal.
Blu Spas is the world leader in creating customized luxury spas for the
most discerning international clientele.”
Kirchert Pakonen is a team of two Minnesota real estate veterans, Blaine Kirchert and Rich Pakonen. The developers have set their sights on the beautiful northwestern coast of Costa Rica for their new luxury condominiums, hotels and estate homes. Their first project, Sombras (“The Shade” in Spanish), will soon be unveiled in Playa del Coco in the country’s North Guanacaste region. A second project is currently under way just north of Playa del Coco on 60 acres of waterfront property between Playa Hermosa and Playa Panama, overlooking the Gulf of Papagayo. The development, La Punta Papagayo, will open in 2009 and feature a five-star hotel, luxury villas, estate homes and a retail village. La Punta Papagayo is expected to be one of Costa Rica’s most significant resort developments.
