San Juan, Puerto Rico (January 11, 2012) — It’s the hottest address with the coolest look: with a $2.5M renovation well underway, the San Juan Water Beach Club Hotel is ready to take its rightful place as the ultimate playground for grownups and the local Mecca of hip, with music designed by international DJs, lively parties and celebrity stopovers. Located on the exclusive corner of famous Isla Verde beach, the hotel takes its cues from the sapphire-blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean and incorporates them into its swanky décor. Along with its friendly, personalized service, the “Water Club” is set to raise the bar for boutique hotels once again in Puerto Rico.
According to the new General Manager, José Torres, “The Water Club has all the right stuff to take the Metropolitan Area’s luxury boutique hotel experience to the next level and we’re having just as much fun with our new concept as our guests are.” With 15 years of experience, Mr. Torres is well positioned to help the resort retain its leadership position as one of Puerto Rico’s top hotels. His youthful enthusiasm paired with his proven ability and knowledge of the inner workings of resort properties give him invaluable insight into what makes a unique property like the Water Club tick—and what to do to make it a success.
The perfect combination of comfort and luxury, 80 guest rooms including stunning suites feature ocean front views, partial ocean views, and city views. Plush beds dominate the space, with new pillow-top king sized mattresses made up with pristine, high-thread-count linens. Enhancing the guest experience, new creative touches include the “Tu Deseo” (My Wish List) wish board mounted in each guest room. From extra towels, a sunrise aqua yoga session, to local fruit with their room service breakfast, “Tu Deseo” will allow guests to express themselves and make their stay more enjoyable. A boutique gym and ocean front business center round out the offering.
Renowned as the hot spot for local residents and tourists, Mist offers comfortable seating areas for rooftop relaxation, swimming pool, signature cocktails and a decadent Island-Italian-Spanish-fusion menu featuring Socializers—small plates you can share—prepared with fresh, locally grown ingredients.
The new restaurant Zest on the ground floor welcomes guests with a unique subaquatic atmosphere and a modern experiential cuisine menu featuring sustainability-sourced ingredients, each dish infused with a unique scent meant to stimulate every sense. The Water Club’s entire culinary operation is under the careful watch of new Executive Chef, local celebrity Raul Correa Soto, the 2008 Cattlemen’s Chef Challenge Champion, and collaborator for El Nuevo Día’s “Por Dentro” Food Section and Primera Hora.
Even the Beach Experience has been re-engineered. Electronically connected to the hotel and restaurant, the Water Girls offer fast and unique service with a Beach Party menu built on user-friendly foods.
Room rates for The San Juan Water and Beach Club Hotel range from $199 to $359 per night, based on double occupancy. Stay tuned for more at http://waterbeachhotel.com/.
