There’s no question you’ll be feeling like a star on your big day. Keep the special feeling and blockbuster-level excitement going even after you’ve said your ‘I do’s, slipped off your dress and said goodbye to your guests, with the ultimate celeb experience honeymoon at Planet Hollywood Beach Resort Costa Rica.
Sunwing is now offering vacation packages from four major airports across the country, making planning and travel a total breeze. Once you get there, this new luxury resort rolls out the red carpet for honeymooners with VIP service and A-list amenities, all set against the backdrop of the truly breathtaking Pacific coast. I mean, even the beach is black – talk about chic.
The secluded black volcanic sand beach is just the beginning, though. Planet Hollywood Beach Resort is a luxury escape tucked into an eco wonderland. Considered one of the most bio-diverse regions in the world, Costa Rica is made up of about one quarter protected jungle that’s home to monkeys, lizards, sloths and countless exotic birds. There are also volcanoes, waterfalls and so much more to discover in this lush landscape. You don’t even have to leave the property to see wild white-faced capuchin monkeys – they love visiting the beach!
Splash Out Poolside
For a small upgrade fee you can sunbathe like an A-lister in a private cabana for a day. You’ll get dedicated service, access to private menus, your own hot tub and a TV, in case you feel the need to relax with a fave rom-com in between dips in the pool. Plus, you’re just a hop-skip from Guy’s! Burger Joint (as in Guy Fieri’s – and it’s legit).
Unwind In Luxury
The very luxe vibe in the PH Spa harkens back to Hollywood’s Golden Age with rich tile work, exclusive-feeling relaxation areas and lush robes to keep you cozy while you soak it all in. Book a couple’s massage, facial, body treatment (all performed using organic skincare products) or stop by just to unwind in the ultra-cool hydrotherapy pool.
Indulge Your Inner Cinephile
The movie memorabilia on display at Planet Hollywood Beach Resort is truly worth fan-girling over. Film buffs will be amazed to see the white suit jacket Sean Connery wore in 1964’s Bond movie Goldfinger, alongside props from the Indiana Jones franchise, including the holy grail chalice. There’s also Tony Soprano’s iconic leather jacket and props from Jurassic Park, which was set on the fictitious island of Isla Nublar, located 120 miles west of mainland Costa Rica.
Take a Walk On The Wild Side
Visit one of the country’s volcanoes, take a hike in the rain forest, go zip lining in the jungle or day trip to one of the region’s majestic waterfalls. There are several carefully curated excursions to choose from that will make your honeymoon even more memorable, while you learn about the famed biodiversity in Papagayo Gulf.
By the time your week of romance is finished you’ll definitely leave Costa Rica relaxed, with love in your heart – and stars in your eyes.
