following others in Naples, FL; San Diego, CA; Santa Fe, NM; and Scottsdale,
AZ.  Baleen features ocean-inspired cuisine with regional and local flavors.
The restaurant offers candlelit dining inside as well as on an outdoor
elevated terrace, overlooking the pools and the sparkling Atlantic Ocean.

  The Shores Resort & Spa now features SpaTerre, the signature spa brand of
Noble House Hotels & Resorts.  The 2,500 square-foot Indonesian-inspired
SpaTerre is designed to incorporate the style and traditions of east and west
cultures while promoting health (body), peace (soul) and relaxation (spirit)
through global, cross-cultural spa experiences.  Decorated in a tropical theme
featuring palm tree murals and grass wall coverings, all set in a laid-back
Colonial style, the spa features six treatment rooms, including a couple’s
massage room, wet room with Vichy Shower, facial room, manicure/pedicure room
and a private steam room.  The treatment rooms feature claw-foot tubs and some
include private showers.  The Shores also features a new fitness center, with
state-of-the-art exercise equipment.

investment of more than $151,000 per room, which includes a luxury bed
package; a hi-tech package including a 42-inch plasma flat-screen television,
DVD/CD player, wireless and hi-speed Internet access; amenity decor and new
wall designs.  The new beach style theme features a blend of painted rustic
furniture, bright colors and soft textures.  Upgrades to the oceanfront guest
room balconies were completed earlier this year.

  Meeting space renovations includes a variety of improvements, such as new
carpet and furnishings, as well as the addition of a boardroom overlooking the

with spectacular water views, for corporate and social events. The space
features the new Ocean Terrace perfect for intimate social gatherings to
larger corporate events.

outdoor tiki bar, all with panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean.  The Shores’
welcome experience has been extensively enhanced, with renovations to the
Porte Cochere including landscaping and distinctive lighting.  The lobby of
The Shores reflects the new beach style of this resort, with upgrades
including new furnishings and redesign.  An eclectic mix of Colonial and
tropical style furnishings with rich, bold colors recreates the casual
elegance of an East Coast beach house.
