Oct 23, 2016
SAN ISIDRO, COSTA RICA (October 19, 2016) Just one year after opening, Hacienda AltaGracia, an Auberge Resort in the Pérez Zeledón mountains of Costa Rica, has again received prestigious acclaim. Offering the finest in country living, including unique experiences found only in the heart of what is one of the last untainted natural settings in Costa Rica, Hacienda AltaGracia scored 97.46 out of 100 in the 2016 Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards. The Readers’ Choice Awards are announced in the November issue of Condé Nast Traveler, on newsstands nationwide on October 25, 2016. The full list is published exclusively online at www.CNTraveler.com/rca.
“We are honored to be recognized by the discriminating readers of Condé Nast Traveler as one of the best resorts in Central and South America,” said JP Alfonso, General Manager of Hacienda AltaGracia. “In this pristine region, we have created an intimate resort offering experiences that cannot be found elsewhere in Costa Rica. From authentic caballista horseback adventures in the countryside to ultralight flights over the mountains, Hacienda AltaGracia offers rich opportunities for exploration in this dramatic locale. Sincere thanks go to our dedicated resort team, who create these unique experiences and take such great care of our guests every day. It is their remarkable service that has earned our resort repeated honors in our first year of operation.”
The Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards are the longest-running and most prestigious recognition of excellence in the travel industry and are commonly known as “the best of the best of travel.” Under Editor in Chief Pilar Guzmán, the Readers’ Choice Awards have become more selective and specific to the passions that inspire today’s travelers. More than 300,000 readers – nearly twice as many as last year – cast votes for 7,394 hotels, 606 cities, 500 cruise ships, and 236 islands, in an average survey time of 8.4 minutes. The result? The 1,402 best travel experiences in the world.
“We are proud that Hacienda AltaGracia has been honored for its gracious service and incredible staff,” said Mark Harmon, Founder and Managing Partner, Auberge Resorts Collection. “Being voted No. 8 Resort in Central and South America so soon after opening is a testament to the unique experience that the Hacienda AltaGracia team has created in this spectacular mountain setting. Auberge’s first resort Central America exquisitely complements the other award-winning properties in the Auberge Resorts Collection.”
Opened in August 2015, Hacienda AltaGracia is set amidst the lush mountains of Pérez Zeledón in the southern region of Costa Rica. Originally built as a family retreat and coffee farm, the boutique luxury resort features 50 hacienda-style casitas, the largest spa and wellness facility in Central America, a panoramic pool, private airstrip, indoor/outdoor dining venues, an extensive equestrian center and a fleet of Ultralights.
