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.
