Coral Reef Club Adding New Amenity
It has come to light that the Coral Reef Club is now closed for yet another major refurbishment. This time around, realizing that in the highly competitive business of attracting guests to a Caribbean resort requires more than just offering sun, sand and sea, and a place to sleep, Coral Reef Club is building a US$3.5M 5,000sq ft “sleek” and “zen-like” resort spa to offer Caribbean-inspired treatments. It will have four treatment rooms, each with a private garden and there will be a couples’ outdoor treatment pavilion and a hydro pool.
To make way for this stunning new development the Coral Arms block (formerly the Coral Arms Hotel) and other buildings on the beachfront property will be demolished. Mr. & Mrs. Pierce who built the Coral Arms Hotel back in the early 1970s must have turned in their graves now that their dream project which first fell into the arms of the Coral Reef Club [no pun intended] has finally literally bitten the dust. The resort will be closed until October 11 and the spa should be ready by December.
