Aimbridge Hospitality Announces Opening of the Resort at Coco Beach, A Hyatt Affiliated Hotel in August 2019

Full-Service Hyatt Affiliated Hotel Opens in Puerto Rico and Redefine Resort Experience

USA, Dallas, Texas. September 16, 2019

The new Resort at Coco Beach, a Hyatt affiliated hotel and one-of-a-kind premium wellness experience, is now open in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico. The 579-all suite oceanfront property on the island's serene northeast coast is situated on a secluded 1,000-acre peninsula within a private development. The resort is managed by an affiliate of Aimbridge Hospitality, LLC, North America's largest independent hotel management and investment firm. The hotel is expected to be rebranded as Hyatt Regency Coco Beach Resort later this year, following the completion of brand enhancements and updates.

Formerly the Gran Meliá Hotel, the property was acquired by Monarch Alternative Capital in partnership with Royal Palm Companies and an affiliate of Aimbridge Hospitality, LLC. in 2019, following Hurricane Maria. The Resort at Coco Beach then underwent an extensive multi-million dollar renovation, creating 300 direct employees with 525 direct jobs upon the opening of the hotel.

Accommodations at The Resort at Coco Beach include 480 junior suites, 93 deluxe suites, five club suites and one presidential suite. Each airy, expansive unit is decorated in soothing neutral shades and enjoy all modern conveniences, such as complimentary Wi-Fi, large flat screen televisions with pay-per-view, premium bath amenities, a coffeemaker, laptop safe, hair dryer, iron and ironing board, refrigerator, and air conditioning.

Amenities designed to foster the experience feature three expansive swimming pools, the full-service Rainforest Spa, wellness center and salon, and daily activities that include tennis, volleyball, basketball, jogging, and golfing on two world-class Tom Kite-designed 18-hole championship golf courses. Additionally, a dedicated concierge service provides lifestyle management, transportation, travel and vacation planning, and personalized service.

The hotel offers four onsite food and beverage experiences:

Water's Edge - Caribbean-style buffet serving breakfast, lunch & dinner made from local ingredients

Prime 787 - Upscale, fine-dining environment offering prime steaks and fresh local seafood

Nori - Asian fusion experience serving sushi, sashimi, ceviche bar and teppanyaki grill

Pasión by Chef Myrta - Gourmet culinary experience offering Puerto Rican cuisine

Lobby Bar - Casual bar featuring craft cocktails and live entertainment

"The Resort at Coco Beach was designed to embrace and nurture the mind, body and soul," said Dave Johnson, chairman and CEO at Aimbridge Hospitality. "We aim to center on the guest's experience and look forward to providing the ultimate escape for each of our guests."

"We are excited with the reopening of this important hotel as a Hyatt property," said Carla Campos, executive director of the Puerto Rico Tourism Company. "Tourism development is a key driver of economic growth and a priority for the Government of Puerto Rico. The Island offers highly competitive incentive packages and benefits, which makes us an ideal destination for investors, developers, and hotel management leaders such as Aimbridge Hospitality. We're looking forward to all that is to come for the future of Hyatt Regency Coco Beach Resort."

Beyond redefining the resort experience for leisure guests, the property applies the same high-touch experience for the meetings and events market, with 41,208 square feet of total function space and state-of-the-art meeting facilities all backed by a dedicated offering seamless service.

Food & Beverage: New Technological Innovations

In the past few years, hotel food and beverage departments have experienced significant growth. Managers are realizing just how much revenue potential this sector holds, both in terms of additional revenue and as a means to enhance the guest experience. As a result, substantial investments are being made in F&B operations as a way to satisfy hotel guests but also to keep pace with the competition. Though it has been a trend for many years, the Farm-to-Table movement shows no signs of abating. Hotel chains are abandoning corporate restaurants and are instead partnering with local chefs to create locally-influenced dining options. Local, farm-sourced ingredients paired with specialty beverages or local wine also satisfies the increasing demand from Millennial travelers who are eager to travel sustainably and contribute to a positive impact. A farm-to-table F&B program also helps to support the local economy, which builds community goodwill. Also popular are "Self-Serv" and "Grab & Go" options. These concepts stem from an awareness that a guest's time is limited and if a hotel can supply them with fast, fresh, food and beverage choices, then so much the better for them. Plus, by placing these specialty kiosks in areas that might be traditionally under-utilized (the lobby, for instance), they can become popular destination locations. Of course, there are new technological innovations as well. In-room, on-screen menus allow guests to order from any restaurant on the property, and some hotels are partnering with delivery companies that make it possible for guests to order food from any restaurant in the area. Also, many hotels are implementing in-room, voice-activated devices, so ordering food via an AI-powered assistant will soon become mainstream as well. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these developments and document what some leading hotels are doing to expand this area of their business.
