During the renovation, all 500+ guest rooms will be refurbished. The furnishings, flooring, lighting, kitchen appliances, bedding, and bathrooms will all receive upgrades. The resort is also building two new three-bedroom villas. These timeshare villas will feature private entry, a garage, patio, and private pool.

The resort will also add a new food & beverage station, seating area, and entertainment area.
