P3 Design Collective completes $150M Caribe Hilton restoration

Caribe Hilton in San Juan, Puerto Rico, completed its more than $150 million restoration following a 15-month closure.

Park Hotels & Resorts, which owns the property, worked with P3 Design Collective, a design firm based in McLean, Va., to design the resort’s new incarnation.

In terms of design, there are touches inspired by San Juan, the property’s location, as well as its history. Included in the renovation project were the guestrooms and suites, food-and-beverage concepts, the fitness center, the spa, the tennis center (in collaboration with Puerto Rican Olympic gold medalist Monica Puig), and the landscaping.
