"While we continue to receive the industry's top distinctions and honors, our unwavering commitment to the highest quality service and accommodations drives us to push forward in order to keep our product ahead of contemporary trends," said Sir Royston O. Hopkin KCMG, Spice Island Beach Resort's owner and chairman.
The resort will close from Sept 2-21, 2013 in order to complete construction projects including an upgraded porte-cochère featuring contemporary pavers as well as redesigned public spaces throughout the entire property.
The courtyard, reception lobby, restaurants and residence lounge will enjoy a brand new façade featuring wall definitions and trimmings, chic lighting and contemporary aesthetics accented by a fresh combination of colors. The Sea & Surf Terrace – a popular setting for causal lunches and evening entertainment – will be expanded with two extended decks, allowing for more seating and an enhanced dance floor.
Furniture throughout all restaurants and public areas will be replaced, including pool deck and bar furniture. A dedicated concierge area will be added to the lobby area for guests' convenience, while the business centre will be relocated to a dedicated location.
The full-service, on property Janissa's Spa will close one week earlier on Aug. 25 in order to facilitate an extensive upgrade and expansion. The redesigned spa will feature a separate hair salon, a brand new manicure and pedicure facility, a new indoor couples massage room and sauna area complete with double outdoor showers. The spa's outer deck will be transformed into a relaxation area to provide a tranquil ambiance to aid in guests' relaxation.
Enhancing the contemporary look and feel of the resort's guestrooms, select indoor and outdoor furniture and fixtures will be replaced. The addition of patio fans will help sunbathers keep cool on warm days, while upgraded Dedon chaise lounges in the garden area of Sea Grape suites will ensure visitors unwind in comfort and style. A redesigned lighting theme and immaculate, new soft furnishings will give all guestrooms a brand new appearance designed to impress discerning travellers.
All construction projects will be completed by Sept. 21, while Spice Island Beach Resort will continue to upgrade soft furnishings with an ultimate completion date of Oct. 31, 2013.
