The following improvements have been exceeding guest expectations already:
- All 27 holes of La Paloma Country Club's Jack Nicklaus Signature design golf course received rejuvenation of bunkers and greens. This $600,000 project dramatically changed the aesthetics of the golf course, creating the look and feel of a new facility, while keeping the traditions of this championship layout.
- The La Paloma Country Club Westin WORKOUT fitness center was completely remodeled and outfitted with state-of-the art Life Fitness strength training equipment. Westin Workout amenities are available to all resort guests.
- The six La Paloma Country Club hard tennis courts were resurfaced with the True Bounce Resurfacing System. This process involves layering different consistencies of materials made from recycled tires. (Each court was applied with material from approximately 15,000 recycled tires!)
- New 13-passenger Mercedes Sprinters now offer stylish transport to shopping and dining experiences at the nearby La Encantada shopping center, an elegant refuge for the region's best retail therapy and dining.
- Dramatic and refreshing color adjustment on the lobby portico and façades of every building on property.
- Complete refurbishment of the 177 foot Slidewinder waterslide.
- New landscaping and lighting throughout the property including locally sourced rock and indigenous vegetation.
Additional phases of the resort-wide rejuvenation project will take place in 2013 -- the majority during the slower summer months. These will include dramatic, contemporary enhancements to the lobby, AZUL Restaurant and Lounge and the adjoining mountain-view patio, Kids Club facilities, poolside cabanas and more.
