Marriott International (NYSE: MAR) will introduce its luxury JW Marriott brand in Puerto Rico in 2011 with a 371-room resort and spa under a recently concluded management agreement with Redwood Capital Advisors and Coco Beach LLC, a joint venture of Empresas Diaz and Janna Hospitality.
The resort will be located approximately 20 miles east of San Juan’s Luis Munoz Marin International Airport on a 27-acre oceanfront site and will be part of the existing 1,000-acre, master-planned development called Coco Beach Resort. Included in the development is an existing 36-hole championship, Tom Kite-designed golf course which was host of the 2008 Puerto Rico Open.
“We are delighted to introduce our highly acclaimed JW Marriott brand in Puerto Rico and simultaneously to increase our JW Marriott brand presence in the Caribbean, one of the world’s most popular holiday destinations,” said Ed Fuller, president & managing director of international lodging for Marriott International.
"Puerto Rico is a major market for us both for leisure and business travel and we are confident that this JW Marriott resort and spa will be successful from Day One.”
Accommodations at the JW Marriott Coco Beach Resort & Spa will be luxuriously and elegantly appointed and will feature plush bed and bath amenities, flat screen television, high speed internet access and voice mail and in-room safe.
For dining and entertainment, the resort will have an open, casual all-day restaurant with terrace seating offering beach/pool views, a specialty dining restaurant and a beach/pool bar. A focal point of the public areas will be the resort’s spacious lobby, bar and lounge which will change character throughout the day and invite guest to linger over coffee, gather with friends or colleagues for impromptu meetings or simply to relax.
For recreation, the resort will offer a 17,775-square-foot world-class spa and fitness center, an outdoor swimming pool, facilities for water sports, access to the championship golf course, a 6,370-square-foot casino and a kid’s club. Other amenities will include an executive club lounge, 24-hour room service and a business center.
For conferences and social events, the JW Marriott Coco Beach Resort & Spa will offer 20,919 square feet of meeting space including a 12,000 square-foot ballroom divisible into multiple sections, seven individual meeting rooms in varying configurations, two board rooms and five hospitality suites, one of which is divisible into two sections.
