Marriott Vacation Club's Oceana Palms renovated

Marriott Vacation Club's second resort in The Palm Beaches is anticipating more villas with ocean views by early 2013. A recent topping-out ceremony marked the structural completion of the final 19-story tower making way for the build-out of 78 additional two-bedroom/two-bath villas, which will combine for a resort total of 159 villas.

Marriott’s Oceana Palms, on Florida’s Singer Island at 3200 North Ocean Drive in Riviera Beach, represents the brand’s 50th resort and was designed by San Francisco and Miami-based SB Architects. The second phase will offer views of the ocean from 1,100 square foot villas that feature a gourmet kitchen with GE stainless steel appliances; living and dining areas; multiple LG flat-panel TVs with DVD players; a shower with multiple shower heads in the master suite; and washer/dryer. Each villa accommodates up to eight guests.

Both 19-story towers feature the MarketPlaceSM convenience store and “Reflections” pool bar and grill, the second phase will also accommodate a 3,200 square foot fitness center, “the Den” teen lounge, and back-of-house office space on the first floor in addition to six more floors for parking. The landscape will feature a cascading water feature, a lawn and fire pit for games and gatherings.
