Marriott intends to develop an Autograph Collection hotel in Costa Rica at the Villa Lapas Garabito, near the Bijagual region

The companies’ shared goal of developing a portfolio of Costa Rican hotels with a local flavor has been solidified with the signing of an agreement between Marriott International and Enjoy Group to open two more properties in the Autograph Collection. Joining two other Costa Rican properties managed by Enjoy Group, Villa Lapas are expected to open in the last quarter of 2025.

The 86 bedrooms at Villa Lapas, Autograph Collection—which is expected to undergo the brand change in the fourth quarter of 2025—are designed with local inspiration. A variety of amenities, including a renovated restaurant and bar, a state-of-the-art fitness facility, an outdoor pool, playgrounds, meeting rooms, and more, will soon be available at this hotel in the Central Pacific region. Travelers seeking picturesque hikes, bike rides, fishing, or surrounding beaches can find a sanctuary at the new hotel.

The new Marriott is expected to have a positive impact on the real estate market in this location, according to our projections. In the event that you are interested in purchasing new land and residences, kindly let us know.
