Building Paradise

HGTV will embrace the “Pura Vida” way of life in the new series, Building Paradise. The series will document high-end hospitality and building experts, Luke Shantz and Steph Sitt, on their journey to overhaul a rickety motel into a dreamy boutique hotel in the Costa Rican surf town of Jacó. With two young daughters in tow, the adventurous couple will collaborate with a local designer and builder to bring Hotel Amavi to life. 

“Luke and Steph are bringing HGTV viewers along on their adventure of a lifetime and the stakes couldn't be higher,” said Loren Ruch, Head of Content, HGTV. “Set against the stunning Costa Rican coastline, Building Paradise is quintessential escapist programming that will have home renovation fans returning week after week.”
