Resort and Beach Facilities Reopening Update
We are quickly approaching the day that members have been waiting for! There has been a flurry of activity around the resort as LaPlaya prepares for our reopening this Friday, November 17th. We thank you for your patience during our recovery from Hurricane Irma and while we wrap up our resort and club renovations. Here is a brief list of what can be expected upon the reopening this Friday.
Beach and Pool Service will resume as normal. Nick and his team will be on hand to assist with beach and pool set up and cabana rentals. The Tiki Pool may experience intermittent closures as renovation work on the Gulf Tower is concluding.
Member Locker Rooms will be available for use. New furniture has been ordered for the locker rooms and will be arriving early next week. New lockers have been ordered as well and are expected to be delivered the first week of December! The member locker rooms will each have a limited number of lockers available until the new ones arrive. To help accommodate, we will have an attendant on hand at the locker rooms to help with bag storage and any other needs you may have.
The Tiki Bar will be open for their regularly scheduled hours. Mark, Rob and the team have been working diligently to get everyone's favorite spot back up and running. Tiki Bar received a new thatch roof and other new appointments to help give it an updated and refreshed look. Tiki will also be featuring a new food menu. Just a reminder that the NFL Sunday Ticket will be available to watch your favorite team play.
The new resort lobby is finished and is absolutely beautiful! We encourage all members to stop by and check out the new and exciting look.
Baleen will be open for service beginning with the lunch shift on Friday. Just as the lobby did, Baleen has also undergone an extensive and exciting renovation. Chef John and Chef Brooke have developed a creative and flavorful new menu for your enjoyment.
Resort and Club Valet: All valet traffic will continue to be temporarily directed through the Club entrance. The resort valet will remain a construction entrance as we wrap up renovations. Different options are being examined to alleviate potential valet congestion during higher traffic periods.
SpaTerre: Services will once again begin this Friday. Nate and the SpaTerre team have some wonderful new products available.
Fitness Center: Normal class schedule and hours of operations will resume this Friday.
The Club Dining Room is still undergoing repairs and is scheduled to reopen on Friday, December 1st. Club administration 239-254-5000 and Club concierge 239-254-5008 will be available to assist with any needs or requests.
Please keep in mind that some of these items are subject to change as we finalize work on the various projects. We once again thank everyone with their patience and understanding during this challenging time, but more than anything we're grateful for the outpouring of encouragement and genuine concern for the well being of the staff. We're excited about the new look and positive changes that have been made and know that you will be as well.
