CARSLBAD, CA (November 18, 2010) -– The Carlsbad Inn Beach Resort celebrated its 25th on a beautiful October day on the Coast of Southern California. The lush grounds were the site of a party which included timeshare homeowners, guests, exchangers, local dignitaries, vendors and Grand Pacific Resort Management executives and staff.
Jim Watkins, CEO of Winners Circle Resorts International, who developed the property 25 years ago and David Brown and Tim Stripe current co-presidents of Grand Pacific Resort Management, welcomed attendees who enjoyed music, beverages, hors d’ouevres and entertainment.
To mark the 25th anniversary, the property has undergone some major renovations including an upgrade of the sleeping rooms; The Library and Sunset Room (formerly Terrace Room) are updated with lightening of the dark word, carpet, paint and lighting. Off the Sunset Room, the veranda is getting glass enclosure so nothing to obstruct the gorgeous views of the ocean. The light moss with white trim paint used on the Hotel gives The Carlsbad Inn a French Country look.
The Lobby, public restrooms and vending area also saw improvements in August. Many of the soothing colors used in the guest rooms will carry through the project tying in the sunset hues.
According to Jim Watkins the day was particularly meaningful. “We had perfect weather and a great crowd of well wishers and team members. Some of the folks who were here were original owners of the timeshare condominiums from 25 years ago; others had worked at the property since it was built and many were new faces enjoying our wonderful location, beautiful grounds and fabulous view.”
Randy Chapin, General Manager of the property adds “It was great to see everyone enjoying themselves after a whirlwind summer of changes. Our resort looks wonderful and we’re proud to show it off.”
Carlsbad Inn Beach Resort, built in 1985, is a mixed-used property with vacation ownership condominiums, 61-key hotel, retail and restaurant. Privately owned, it is managed by Grand Pacific Resort Management. For more information www.carlsbadinn.com
