Cape Arundel Inn & Resort Unveils New Luxury Rooms as Summer Season Begins

KENNEBUNKPORT, ME. May 2, 2017 – The Cape Arundel Inn & Resort, on exclusive Ocean Avenue in Kennebunkport, ME, has launched six newly designed luxury accommodations known as the Rockbound Bungalows. Adjacent to the gracious Victorian-era home that is the Main House of the resort, these six rooms provide guests with expansive front-porch views through sliding French doors of the Atlantic Ocean just across the street.

Inspired by the seaside setting, the Rockbound Bungalows are infused with soft grays, shades of sky blue and polished aqua, with deep coral accents. Each 400 square-foot, king-bedded room features luxurious Frette fabrics, metallic detailing and contemporary finishes including hardwood flooring, velvet headboards, onyx side tables and custom marble vanities. Equipped with a breakfast bar, each room has a sitting area surrounding a gas fireplace.

To celebrate, the resort is offering a value-added “On The Rocks” package that features a two night stay in the newly designed Rockbound Bungalows. Outfitted with a sleek bar cart fully stocked with customized mixology essentials, guests can sip their cocktail creations from a private balcony overlooking the ocean. A noon departure will ensure ample time to savor morning coffee with a classic Kennebunkport view. Available now through June 22, 2017, package rates start at $379 per night.

Guests in the Rockbound Bungalows and Ocean Suite can also choose to dine al fresco while soaking in their ocean view. The three course dinner requires 72-hours’ notice and is $99 per person, plus $50 per person gratuity, excluding beverages and tax.

Welcomed as privileged visitors to the summer estate of friends, guests of Cape Arundel Inn & Resort will find 14 distinctly appointed, supremely comfortable rooms and social spaces, including the award-winning Ocean restaurant. Named one of OpenTable’s “100 Most Scenic Restaurants in America,” Ocean features inventive French-inspired seafood cuisine from Executive Chef Pierre Gignac in a warm atmosphere with stunning views of the Atlantic. Ocean is serving dinner Wednesday through Sunday from 5:00-9:00pm (seven nights a week beginning May 21st) and breakfast daily for hotel guests.

In addition to the Main House, Cape Arundel Inn & Resort expands to include 15 wooded acres in a secluded cluster of private vintage homes just five minutes away. The Club House features an additional 14 rooms, a three-bedroom cottage, a heated outdoor pool, expansive lawns and the library with a vintage pool table, oversized fire place, and full bar.

Social Media: Engagement is Key

There are currently 2.3 billion active users of social media networks and savvy hotel operators have incorporated social media into their marketing mix. There are a few Goliath channels on which one must have a presence (Facebook & Twitter) but there are also several newer upstart channels (Instagram, Snapchat &WeChat, for example) that merit consideration. With its 1.86 billion users, Facebook is a dominant platform where operators can drive brand awareness, facilitate bookings, offer incentives and collect sought-after reviews. Twitter's 284 million users generate 500 million tweets per day, and operators can use its platform for lead generation, building loyalty, and guest interaction. Instagram was originally a small photo-sharing site but it has blown up into a massive photo and video channel. The site can be used to post photos of the hotel property, as well as creating Instagram Stories - personal videos that disappear from the channel after 24 hours. In this regard, Instagram and Snapchat are now in direct competition. WeChat is a Chinese company whose aim is to be the App for Everything - instant messaging, social media, shopping and payment services - all in a single platform. In addition to these channels, blogging continues to be a popular method to establish leadership, enhance reputations, and engage with customers in a direct and personal way. The key to effective use of all social media is to find out where your customers are and then, to the fullest extent possible, engage with them on a personal level. This engagement is what creates a personal connection and sustains brand loyalty. The February Hotel Business Review will explore these issues and examine how some hotels are successfully integrating social media into their operations.
