Hacienda AltaGracia, an Auberge Resort Named No. 1 Resort in Central America in Condé Nast Traveler’s 2017 Readers’ Choice Awards

AltaGracia, an Auberge Resort
, the ultra-luxury boutique resort in
the Pérez Zeledón mountains of Costa Rica, has again received
international acclaim and has been named No. 1 Resort in Central
in the 2017 Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice
Awards. Over 300,000 readers submitted millions of ratings and tens of
thousands of comments, sharing their recent travel experiences and
opinions on the world’s best cities, islands, hotels, resorts, cruise
lines, airlines, and airports.

In August, Hacienda AltaGracia received equally prestigious recognition
from Travel + Leisure, whose readers ranked the resort No. 1 in
Central America in the 2017 World’s

Originally conceived and developed as a family retreat and coffee farm
by owner and visionary Don Alberto Esquivel, the resort celebrates the
unspoiled essence of Costa Rica. Offering 50 hacienda-style casitas, the
resort features the largest spa and wellness facility in Central
America, a panoramic outdoor swimming pool and indoor/outdoor
restaurants showcasing an abundance of produce from the resort’s on-site
organic farm.

“It has been a tremendous year at Hacienda AltaGracia, and we are
honored to be recognized by the discerning readers of both Condé Nast
and Travel + Leisure as the No. 1 Resort in Central
America,” said JP Alfonso, General Manager of Hacienda AltaGracia. “This
incredible back-to-back honor is thanks to our talented and passionate
staff that can lead guests on an equestrian adventure that celebrates
the authentic culture or take them up on unforgettable ultralight
flights that showcase our unspoiled region of Costa Rica.”

“It is a great achievement to have the readers of Condé Nast Traveler
and Travel + Leisure name Hacienda AltaGracia No. 1 Resort in
Central America in the same year,” said Craig Reid, President and Chief
Executive Officer, Auberge Resorts Collection. “This recognition is
thanks to our team’s exemplary service, development of unique
experiences and the resort’s visionary Don Alberto Esquivel, whose
dedication to excellence and honoring culture can be felt in every
element of the resort’s extraordinary mountain setting.”
