February 3, 2014 – The Enjoy Hotels brand announced today that the highly anticipated El Mangroove in Papagayo Bay, Costa Rica will open its doors to international travelers on February 2.

Set on more than 15 acres of beach forest surrounded by virgin mangroves and autochthonous landscaped gardens, offering breathtaking sunset views, El Mangroove offers the perfect combination of nature and simple luxury.

The resort’s 85 suites – among the largest in the region starting at 625 square-feet – feature indoor/outdoor living rooms, regional artwork, and a simplistic-meets-exotic furnishings. To reflect the lifestyle theme found throughout the Enjoy Hotels portfolio, El Mangroove features live music daily offered by the poolside DJ, sensorial gastronomy at its two restaurants, nature-inspired fitness facilities with indoor/outdoor training spaces, and 7,000 square-feet of indoor/outdoor meeting space.

Active travelers looking to experience Papagayo Bay can access the resort’s boats to enjoy fishing trips, surfing tours, and beach hopping excursions, or experience the area like locals during a visit to the artsy town of El Coco, which is just 15 minutes away. For those looking to indulge in the art of relaxation, El Mangroove features a full-service spa that is nestled among the mangroves and offers outdoor yoga and meditation areas, as well as a 130-foot pool with poolside private cabanas and pool lounges.
