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.

Revenue Management: Maximizing Profit

Hotel Revenue Management continues to evolve at a blistering pace. Driven by technological innovation and new distribution channels, there are some dynamic opportunities for expansion in this fast-growing field. The technology is primarily designed to help revenue managers further refine their operations and pricing models to maximize hotel profit. For example, hotels can't be all things to all people, so a key strategy is to precisely identify their target audience. By employing geo-targeting techniques and analyzing behavior such as previous bookings, on-property purchases and online shopping practices, there is an increased capability to define guest demographics. By segmenting customers in more specific ways, hotels are able to create more personalized experiences which, in turn, allow managers to optimize their room rates. It is also an effective way to fulfill the unique needs and preferences of the individual. Another methodology is to consistently monitor the competition's pricing strategies. There are software tools that analyze a competitor's current rates, and then allow a hotel to make its own pricing adjustments. It is also a useful means to conduct forecasting models. Other technologies that are being integrated into a revenue manager's toolkit include Artificial Intelligence in the form of automated algorithms, and Voice Recognition (VR) for data inquiries, rate changes, and booking behavior. Predictive and analytic software programs are also being leveraged to provide more forward-looking data, instead of the usual reliance on historical performance. These metrics allow managers to be more proactive - rather than reactive - with their revenue strategy. The October issue of the Hotel Business Review will examine these developments and report on how some leading hotels are executing their revenue management strategies.
