St Lucia’s Coconut Bay all-inclusive has reopened after completing $3 million in refurbishments over the course of a month-long closure.

The enhancements focused on improving guests’ experiences from dining experience from dining venues to poolside.

“Our closure was planned, the resort – and Saint Lucia — were unaffected by the hurricanes and we are better than ever,” says Mark Adams, CEO of Coconut Bay Beach Resort & Spa. “The Caribbean is open for business and we’re looking forward to hearing the feedback from guests as we continue to make improvements to our physical amenities and our food and beverage experiences based on their valuable comments.”

The resort’s expansive central dining and entertainment venue, now called The Cove, underwent a holistic upgrade, with environmentally responsible coastal-casual décor including new flooring, furniture and booths, light fixtures and even new names.

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.

Hand-tossed, personal pies are made-to-order in just minutes and burgers share the grill with fish tacos, chicken sandwiches and more.

In the evening, “sophisticated table linens” and candlelit alfresco dining take center stage at Sea Side.

The Activity Pool, one of five pools at the resort, has also been resurfaced inside and out.

Guests taking a break from Aqua Fitness and Water Polo can relax in a new jacuzzi, grab a fresh towel at the convenient new Towel Hut and relax in a lounger on the deck of new pavers surrounding the pool.

The improvements extent to the zero-entry Splash pool where a new thatch-covered lounge area offers plenty of shade, perfect for taking a break from sunbathing or reading.

Sports fans can keep up with their favorite 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 gathering spot is bigger than before, with an extended bar, new stools, furniture and now four television screens.
