Just in time for the holiday season, Planet Hollywood Beach Resort Costa Rica reopened Nov. 27, welcoming travelers and guests back to paradise with advanced safety protocols and procedures.


The resort is located at the base of Peninsula Papagayo in Costa Rica’s Guanacaste region. The Planet Hollywood Beach Resort offers an upscale, all-inclusive getaway surrounded by exotic jungles, natural wonders and amazing experiences.


The 294-luxury-suite resort features six bars, a fitness center, spa, two swimming pools, seven restaurants and an abundance of on-site activities for guests.


With the reopening, Planet Hollywood is also rolling out its Safety-Assured Vacations program consisting of advanced health and safety measures. This program includes nine different pillars of protection to safeguard both guests and staff members from the spread of germs. The resort is also offering online pre-check-in service, making the arrival experience quick and safe.


Planet Hollywood’s Pura Vida Reset package was created to reset the mind, body and spirit following the worldwide stress of COVID-19. “Pura vida” represents the way of life in Costa Rica — the package is filled with Costa Rican adventures and experiences.


The package is available through April 30, 2021, and includes a three-night stay in a Junior Suite Ocean View room, a session and access to the spa, sunrise yoga, guided walks and visits to the surrounding areas and more.
