Nekajui, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve will have 107 guest rooms and suites

Peninsula Papagayo, the 1,400-acre private club and resort community located on Costa Rica's north Pacific coast, today announced plans to build Nekajui, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve.

Designed for the most discerning eco-adventure leisure travelers, Nekajui, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve (pronounced NEK-ah-wee) is a new expression of luxury hospitality, welcoming guests on a highly personalized journey to one of the world's most naturally beautiful and biodiverse destinations.

Curated for adventurers seeking highly tailored and culturally immersive experiences, Nekajui converges on the human element that is intrinsic to true luxury.

"Service will be highly personalized," says Simon Cooper, Gencom board member and lead advisor to Peninsula Papagayo. "With more staff and relatively fewer rooms, Nekajui has the privilege and uncommon opportunity to personally host guests, one-to-one." 

Growing demand from the most discerning leisure travelers is what motivated Gencom and Mohari Hospitality, co-owners of Peninsula Papagayo, to look beyond the gilded suites and familiar trappings of luxury. Cooper believes Nekajui will provide a much-needed antidote for the "been there, done that'' syndrome. "It's no longer just about the best guest rooms or facilities," Cooper said, "it is about creating extraordinary experiences and lifetime memories."

Inspired by Guanacaste's classic haciendas, intimate public spaces bring together rich details from Spanish and Sabanero culture. Curated collections of original works by local artisans provide tactile touchpoints to explore the old and new. Lavish guest rooms are designed in a contemporary Costa Rican vernacular with spacious canopied patios and private plunge pools framing spectacular ocean and sunset views across the Gulf of Papagayo. Fittingly, the spa and fitness hub is accessed by a dramatic hanging bridge, inviting guests on an unforgettable path to lifelong wellness.

The name Nekajui comes from the language of the pre-Columbian Chorotegas, Guanacaste's original inhabitants. The English translation, garden, inspired Nekajui's singular open-air venues that welcome guests to step into a natural wonderland containing more species per square mile than any other country on the planet. A secluded beach house, reserved for hotel guests and residence owners, is situated steps from magical grotto pools and sea caves in Pochote Bay.

Other exclusive amenities include three signature Ritz-Carlton Reserve dining experiences, and Jean-Michel Cousteau's Ambassadors of the Environment, which will offer an immersive gateway and uncommon access to 570 square miles of protected wildlands.
