El Conquistador Resort Undergoes Redesign

Spread over 500 acres in Las Croabas, Puerto Rico, the 750-room El Conquistador Resort & Golden Door Spa is undergoing a property-wide, $112 million-and-growing enhancement that includes the unveiling of a 2.4-acre Coqui Water Park in 2008, a complete redesign and refurbishment of all guest rooms, and addition of an outpost of the NYC steakhouse Strip House and a 22,650-square-foot ballroom. Robert Barry, David Rockwell and Leo A. Daly collaborated on the design of the enhancements. The water park will feature an 8,500-square-foot infinity-edge main pool, multiple kids' pools, four water slide, an 8,000-square-foot lazy river ride, a 25,500-square-foot sunbathing deck and a special-event area for private functions. The resort recently christened two new luxury high-speed catamarans, which hold 150 passengers, to cut the transport time to the private Palomino Island down to seven minutes. An update to the 26,000-square-foot Golden Door Spa's locker rooms, waiting lounge and soft goods is almost complete. Visit [www.elconresort.com]. (DB)
