Coconut Bay Beach Resort & Spa in Saint Lucia has closed during September to undergo $5 million in refurbishments. The resort will reopen on October 1, 2018. The planned enhancements include many behind-the-scenes upgrades designed to improve facilities and the overall guest and staff experience.
Restaurants at Coconut Bay will be the focus of much of the scheduled renovations. The resort’s Jerk Treehouse Restaurant, a poolside eatery constructed around a large sea grape tree, will have its top-floor kitchen expanded to meet the high demand for its Caribbean dishes and signature drinks. New kitchens will also be installed in two of the resort’s four à la carte specialty restaurants, the creole-inspired Calabash and Silk serving modern Asian cuisine. They will both also debut new menus along with the alfresco Seaside and adults-only Veranda where the “Fresh Catch of the Day” signature dish will include locally caught Lionfish.
Coconut Walk, the resort’s main restaurant serving local, American and international cuisine at breakfast, lunch and dinner at eight independent stations, will get a facelift that includes a new lighting scheme, murals and tiled columns. A new oven will help the Coconut Bay’s bakers keep up with demand for their bread, croissants, Danish pastries and more. The Stargazers Lounge will get a new tile floor and furniture including seating around the fire pit.
The fourth floor of the family-friendly Splash wing will get new awnings providing shade to premium category rooms. The zero-entry Splash Pool, one of five pools at the resort, will be completely resurfaced inside and out. The thatch-covered Tiki Canopy will be expanded to the Splash Bar to meet guest demand. For those looking to take in some sun, the oceanfront deck behind the Activity Pool will be replaced to accommodate additional loungers and future private parties.
As part of its commitment to sea turtle conservation, the resort will also be expanding its “Skip the Straw, Save a Turtle” initiative to the adults-only Harmony Pool Bar and the Splash Pool Swim-up Bar where straws will no longer be used. The program previously rolled-out to guests at the Paradise Beach Bar where signage serves both to notify guests of the program and alert them to the resort’s turtle conservation program.
Other improvements will include a new roof for The Cove, the resort’s outdoor dining and entertainment venue; new décor, paint and upgraded changing rooms at the 11,000-square-foot oceanfront Kai Mer Spa; and in the Lobby a duty-free retail jewelry store will open in a prominent location next to the 24-hour Coffee and Tea Corner.
