“Our overriding objective is to make improvements enhancing all aspects of our guests’ experiences,” says Mark Adams, President & CEO of Coconut Bay Beach Resort & Spa. “Each year we set our priority action list using the suggestions and wishes our guests share with us and because we’re independently owned and operated, it’s easier for us to make them a reality.”
Coconut Bay’s 250 rooms have been deep steam cleaned. New sofas have been installed in the adults-only Harmony Wing’s fourth floor rooms, while the remaining sofas have all been reupholstered. New in-room directories were created and have been reintroduced into rooms, though supply-chain disruptions delayed the same for soft goods. Now scheduled for completion prior to the holiday season, the new room décor and amenities will include drapes, bed runners, pillow shams and lumbar pillows.
In addition to a new wedding office, there are new restrooms at the Wedding Center, plus improvements are underway in the creation of the resort’s first official Bridal Suite, conveniently located adjacent to the Center. This spacious suite will provide everything the bride and her party need to get ready for the ceremony, including a large mirror, a makeup counter with seating, plentiful outlets and natural lighting. The group will also enjoy sparkling wine and light refreshments from the serving buffet.
Guests will experience a fresh, new entryway on arrival, with new pavers on the front drive along with fresh stain on the lobby furniture and refinished partitions handcrafted by the resort’s carpenters. The resort’s sundry shop, Kilibwi Corner, has been expanded, plus the lobby restrooms have been renovated with new tile, fixtures and mirrors.
PETER JOHN’S LOUNGE
The resort’s spacious, multi-use lounge received a complete makeover that includes new carpeting and a refresh colour palette. New furniture gives it a more contemporary look for evening cocktails. After 9 p.m., Peter John’s becomes an adults-only space where guests can enjoy live entertainment, Rum Tastings at the Sugar Cane Rum bar, and the weekly Chocolate Extravaganza. And the Piano Bar now features a granite countertop where guests can participate in karaoke and singalongs.
SPORTING VENUES & FACILITIES
The resort’s four basketball courts and four night-lit tennis courts have all be resurfaced. Over at CocoLand Waterpark, the island’s largest waterpark, the enclosed 400-foot Coconut Cannon and the 300-foot Coconut Coaster have been re-caulked and polished and are now “superfast,” according to General Manager Zachary Frangos, who personally put them to the test. The waterpark’s 1,500 foot-long Lazy River was also resurfaced and repainted and also includes new railings on the overpass for spectators. And at the CocoLand Kidz Klub, the team was hands-on in choosing a fun colour palette for the 50,000 square-foot refresh.
