The renovation transformed the property inside and out. In addition to giving the exterior of the resort’s main tower a new look, the resort underwent a full redesign of all guestrooms, and saw the addition of a new spa and spa pool, fitness center, an adults only pool, a full service salon with hair and manicure/pedicure stations, as well as new restaurants. Also, the lounge areas were expanded, and the infinity pool redesigned to add a kids zone.

Among the most notable of the hotel’s new amenities is the newly designed Lazule Sea Spa, which features 4,000 square feet of facilities, including seven treatment rooms, couples room, massage cabanas, and the exclusive spa pool and couples relaxation room.

The resort’s 302 renovated guest rooms offer views of Charlotte Amalie Harbour and access to Morning Star Beach. All guest rooms now boasts Caribbean-inspired décor, rain style shower heads, ergonomic workspaces, LCD HDTVs, and Marriott’s signature bedding, which includes 300 thread count sheets.

The re-designed Aqua Terra Oceanfront Grill and Aqua Terra Lounge, two of the resort’s nine restaurant and lounge offerings, were installed with floor to ceiling windows to also offer vistas of Charlotte Amalie Harbour. Similarly upgraded were the indoor/outdoor bar Rum Bar Terrace, and the open-air restaurant Sunset Grill.
