Saint Lucia’s Coconut Bay Beach Resort & Spa is fully reopened after completing $3 million in refurbishments over a recent month-long closure.
The enhancements put the focus on improving guests’ experience from dining venues to poolside. The resort’s central dining and entertainment venue, now called The Cove, underwent a complete facelift with stylish and environmentally responsible coastal-casual décor, including new flooring, furniture and booths, light fixtures and new names.
The Flip Flops Burger Bar and Pizzeria is suited for a casual meal, whether an early lunch or midnight snack. Guests can relax in new booths – with device charging stations – at high top tables or grab-and-go on their way to CocoLand Waterpark or the beach.
In the evening, candlelit alfresco dining takes place at Sea Side. The Activity Pool, one of five pools at the resort, has been completely resurfaced inside and out. Guests taking a break from Aqua Fitness and Water Polo can relax in a new Jacuzzi, grab a towel at the new Towel Hut and relax in a lounger on the deck of new pavers surrounding the pool. Improvements continue at the zero-entry Splash pool where a new thatch-covered lounge area offers shade, perfect for taking a break from sun-worshipping or reading a book.
Sports enthusiasts can keep up with their teams at the newly christened Sand Bar or enjoy the day’s live entertainment from culinary lessons to dance lessons and live music. Formerly the Blu Bar, this spot is bigger and better with an extended bar, new stools, furniture and now four television screens.
