Diamond Public Relations has expanded its client base in Costa Rica with the addition of El Mangroove to its roster of award winning global travel clients. The bi-coastal agency, headquartered in Miami with an office in Los Angeles, will manage North American public relations efforts to increase awareness, in key markets, for the boutique 85-suite property, which opened its doors in February 2014 and is part of Marriott International’s Autograph Collection.
Tucked between 17-acres of tropical forest lined with virgin mangroves and one of the best beaches on Costa Rica’s coveted Gulf of Papagayo, El Mangroove features a bohemian-inspired design with indigenous decor influences, a spa with outdoor bungalows, two on-site restaurants, a sweeping outdoor swimming pool with private cabanas, and guest room suites with unique touches like in-room hammocks and see-through showers lined with caña brava wood made from local sugarcane.
“Our property prides itself on creativity and individuality,” said Director of Sales and Marketing Mauricio Muñoz. “Diamond PR is a firm that always has its finger on the pulse of what’s trending, and they’re not afraid to do things differently and shake things up. This and their incredible knowledge of the destination are exactly what we need to tell the story of El Mangroove and create campaigns that target the traveler who wants to experience ‘pura vida’ without having to travel for hours just to reach a great beach.”
The closest beachfront resort to an international airport in Costa Rica, the property is just 20-minutes from Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport in Liberia and 15 minutes from the bustling town of El Coco, which offers more than two-dozen shops, bars and restaurants. Its location along with 40,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting and event space make El Mangroove ideal for destination weddings, corporate retreats, incentive and group travel.
“El Mangroove is a different type of offering for the Costa Rican market, one we are going to enjoy bringing to the consumer. They have perfected the art of providing guests a beautiful, rich, resort experience through modern, yet playful all-suite accommodations, a nice range of culinary options, with more to come, direct access to the beach on the Gulf of Papagayo, on site spa, and both water and land activities that speak to multiple levels of adventure seekers and catering to all types of lifestyles,” said Diamond PR President & Founder Jody Diamond. “Additionally, future expansion plans will add a completely new element to what is already a spectacular product. We are honored to be chosen as the firm to tell their story, and they are a nice complement to our existing Latin America client base.”
