San Jose, Costa Rica, September 1, 2009 – Enhancing its portfolio of award winning and internationally recognized sustainable resorts, Cayuga Sustainable Hospitality has taken on the management of Latitude 10 Resort, in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica.
Set on seven acres of private beach front property, Latitude 10 Beach Resort offers guests a very personalized and intimate experience, and was originally built to be a private second home. With room rates that range from US$195.00 – US$295.00 in the Green Season ( June – October) and US$245.00 -US$395.00 in High Season , the resort consists of five spacious free standing, individually decorated and private casitas. Each casita has its own décor, private open air bathrooms and rainforest showers. The heart of the resort is the Clubhouse, an open-air ranchito which overlooks the infinity pool and over 100 meters of private white sand beach. This is where guests can relax, enjoy breakfast, cocktails and light meals, and have their private chef create meals if they book the whole resort. An open air studio offers personalized yoga, massage and spa services.
“Latitude 10 is the perfect complement to our portfolio because the owners already have a commitment to sustainability and the level of service and hospitality experience is on par with all of our properties”, says Cayuga’s President , Hans Pfister. “Our goal is to raise awareness of the amazing experience Latitude 10 offers while helping it to reach even higher sustainability goals in its operations.”
As part of its commitment to the quadruple bottom line of people, planet, profit an place, Latitude 10 hires almost exclusively from the local community and encourages guests to explore Santa Teresa, set on the southern tip of the Nicoya Peninsula in Costa Rica. It provides bicycles to guests so they can discover the surrounding area that offers an abundance of local culture, restaurants and a reputation for ecological consciousness that has awarded the community a “blue flag” since 2001.
