After spending Christmas Day here with Colombian refugees, the actors are planning on ringing in 2007 at the exclusive Four Seasons Resort in Papagayo on Costa Rica's northern Pacific coast, La Nacion newspaper reported.

A telephone call to Pitt's publicist in Beverly Hills, California, was not immediately returned.

Accompanied by their three children, a nanny and a personal chef, the Jolie-Pitt entourage, registered as "the Black family," has been staying at the resort 250 kilometers northwest of the capital since last Friday, according to the report.

Pitt starred in the 1998 movie Meet Joe Black.

The hotel's website describes the facility as "spilling down a lush mountainside to an isthmus of golden sand" and says room rates range from $470 to $6 800 a night.

The two spent Christmas Day in Costa Rica with refugee children and families from Colombia, also part of Jolie's ambassadorship for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, the agency said.

There are about 11 500 refugees in Costa Rica, most of whom fled Colombia because of the conflict between leftist guerrillas, soldiers and paramilitary forces.

"I am deeply affected by having had the opportunity to be with them," said Costa Rica's former Culture Minister Guido Saenz, who brought the two on a tour of the country's art museum. "They have a mixture of physical beauty, great talent and an altruistic attitude."
