A spa will also be added.

The complex will feature eight treatment rooms, two couples’ treatment rooms, a relaxation room and men’s and women’s locker rooms with separate sauna and steam rooms. A variety of massage, facial and body treatments will be offered, as well as a beauty salon with full nail, hair and waxing services.

The refurbishment will also include a complete renovation to the main lobby including a new reception check in area, upgrading and expanding the resort’s main dining area and Italian restaurant, the construction of a new entertainment area, extension of the main pool deck area, the addition of a new beach bar and grill and a new wedding gazebo.
