plans to debut a $6.5 million, 12,500-square-foot expansion to its existing meeting space, bringing its total conference area to more than 30,000 square feet. Scheduled to open in early 2017, the new convention area is on the ground level overlooking the outdoor pool. It will connect to the existing convention space via escalators.
The new meeting space includes the 8,000-square-foot Antilles Ballroom, which can be divided into four breakout rooms ranging from 1,060 square feet to 1,961 square feet. Also in the new space is the 1,300-square-foot Bahamas Room and the 1,300-square-foot Coral Room. The new space can accommodate groups up to 700; the existing 18,000 square feet of meeting space can hold groups up to 1,200. The convention spaces feature state-of-the-art technology and tech support from the resort’s onsite AV staff.
