The Holiday Inn Resort continues to enhance the experience for their guests by making little changes to the resort year after year. This year, however, the changes are not little. The Holiday Inn Resort is expanding their Oasis Bar Deck in a big way.

The Oasis Bar Deck is growing by more than 900 square feet of space. This new space will allow for 40 seats at the bar, where there is currently only 12, a stage on the bar deck, along with seating for approximately 200 people to enjoy dining and relaxing.

The Oasis Bar has been underutilized in the last few years – despite the fact that it was only steps from the sandy beaches - because the bar itself is small, and seemed to lack the comforts of a normal bar setting. The view of the water was obscured because the bar deck sat lower than the surrounding gardens. The new bar design lifts the bard deck up to the height of the pool deck, allowing for better views of the emerald green waters. The bar itself will be larger to accommodate more people comfortably, and it will have TVs so you can be watching your favorite sports while enjoying the view of the water and the outdoors.

The improvements to the Oasis Bar will include more services as well. Before, you’d have to walk over and order from the Bamboo Grill if you wanted to enjoy lunch on the bar deck, but the resort plans to have more of an outdoor restaurant feel to the new space, complete with servers for the tables surrounding the bar.

“The new bar is going to be incredible. We’re so excited about the addition of space to the bar deck as it allows us to provide even more great entertainment, great service, and truly enhance the vacation experience for our valued guests.” Says Philip Colvin, Director of Marketing at the Holiday Inn Resort.

Progress on the Oasis Bar has already begun. The resort team has carefully moved the palm trees out of the area temporarily so that the area can be cleared for the expansion. Many of the palm trees will return at the end of the project to surround the new bar area, keeping with the tropical style of the resort.

“We’ll be working hard through the fall and winter to get the new deck completed for spring of 2016,” says Colvin, “but we want to make sure we’re having as little interruption as possible to our fall vacationers so we’ll be making every effort to make this transition as smooth as possible by setting up a temporary outdoor bar on the SunSeeker Deck, and scheduling the work during the daytime while many of our fall guests are out enjoying the area golf courses, shopping, and festivals. Our guests are always our number one priority, and we’ll be working hard to ensure that those who are staying with us during our progress are having a great vacation while we improve upon our resort for their future enjoyment.”

The Holiday Inn Resort truly cares about their guests, and many of their guests come back to see them year after year, that’s one of the many reasons this resort is continuously working to develop the resort, making it even better for those who come to stay with them.

“Our owners believe that the moment you start to be content with how things are is when you start moving backward, backward in your quality, in your service… and we always want to be moving forward, improving our quality, improving our service, and improving our guests’ vacation at the Holiday Inn Resort.”
