(PRWEB) March 18, 2008
The luxurious San Juan resort, La Concha, has just re-opened in partnership with the Marriott Hotels Renaissance brand. Considered the hottest Caribbean vacation destination in the Condado area of San Juan, the new resort is where the rich and famous play, celebrities mingle and the beautiful people indulge their passions and celebrate life.
Indeed, La Concha has undergone a renaissance. Newly re-opened after a complete renovation, the resort maintains the original architectural elements that made it San Juan's premier resort 50 years ago, while completely modernizing it for the 21st century with decidedly upscale elements for the ultimate in style, class and comfort. La Concha truly sets the trend for a new breed of modern luxury, unmatched by any other San Juan resort.
The structure itself is the crowning achievement of architects Toro & Ferrer, the creators of this masterpiece, and Marvell & Marchand and Jorge Rossello, who have brought it back to life. They have created a sleek, modern space where the hip and haute meet and mingle, and where hot Latin rhythms are juxtaposed with cool serenity for an unforgettable experience.
La Concha Resort's open-air lobbies allow the warm Caribbean breeze and intoxicating tropical fragrance to add to its natural ambiance. La Concha's signature seashell restaurant created by renowned architect Mario Salvatori, has been called "a marvel of engineering and architecture" and "one of the high-water marks of Puerto Rico's national architecture." Beyond the lobbies and restaurants, La Concha's spectacular ocean-front rooms and exclusive pool cabanas offer a truly exceptional world-class Caribbean vacation experience.
