Planet Hollywood to Open First-Ever All-Inclusive Resort
Planet Hollywood will open its first all-inclusive resort with the debut of Planet Hollywood Beach Resort in October on the Gulf of Papagay in Costa Rica’s Guanacaste province.
A hillside property, the resort takes advantage of its natural setting with a design based on the understanding of the local environment and, as a result, a balance between construction and nature was achieved to blend the two in an organic way, the company reports.
The resort will have 294 luxury suites, each complete with Phabulous Beds, a handcrafted custom mattress with bedding developed exclusively for Planet Hollywood guests. Dining options include a Guy Fieri’s Burger Joint. The property will also be home to Pumped Fitness Center, PH Spa & Beauty Bar, featuring the celebrity approved Eminence Organic Skin Care line, a PH Shop, two pools, a hot tub and Point Break—the sequel pool bar.
An array of signature brand offerings will be available, including the Your Soundtrack music program where guests can choose a music theme to create the soundtrack of their vacation. Other brand offerings include the Main Event Guarantee, allowing guests to catch all major events in real time and Plugged In, providing guests with unlimited high speed WiFi resort wide.
