FORT MYERS, FL (March 28, 2012) –– The Lubner Group, internationally respected for its award-winning hospitality design work, has recently completed the total renovation of the individually owned one-bedroom beachfront suites at the iconic Casa Ybel Resort on Sanibel Island, Florida.
According to Dan Lubner, President of the Lubner Group (www.LubnerGroup.com) and Clive Daniel Home (www.clivedaniel.com) in Naples, Florida, “Our design professionals created a timeless design by blending the true essence of Sanibel’s Island spirit with a tropical color palette and natural textures for this popular property.”
Inspired by the resort’s beachfront location, the Lubner Group selected a design embracing a relaxed island lifestyle for the new furniture packages, crafting custom furnishings in warm wood tones, accented with rust and orange as a companion to matching draperies and soft golden walls.
Condominium owners were offered two options in selecting their sofa sleeper upholstery and drapery fabrics, enabling them to add their personal touch to the total design. All artwork was retained from the previous design since it reflected historical elements of the property. The Lubner Group plans on completing renovations to the reception and lobby area later this year.
Added Froilan “JR” Ramirez, Resort Manager, “Our owners are delighted with the final results and are committed with us in providing guests with an exceptional resort experience from every aspect of their Casa Ybel vacation.”
In addition to the 40 condominiums, there are also 74-two-bedroom timeshare villas on the 23-acre Gulf-front property, a massive pool area, six tennis courts and legendary Thistle Lodge restaurant. The condominiums are managed by Casa Hospitality Services, a division of Casa Ybel Resort Partnership. The fixed-week timeshare units are managed by Hilton Grand Vacations.
The resort is located on the site of Sanibel Island’s very first resort, built around 1890. During Casa Ybel’s first decade, the Thistle Lodge became the favored gathering spot for celebrities and statesmen, including Thomas Edison and Henry Ford. By the 1920s, the Casa Ybel Hotel had become a full-service resort.
The Lubner Group provides purchasing and design services for commercial and shared-use properties such as timeshare resorts, hotels, fractional ownership and private residence clubs plus developers of high-rise condominiums and single-family communities in North America and abroad.
With corporate offices and warehouse located in Fort Myers, Florida, plus an additional office in Orlando, the Lubner Group is an affordable, single-source provider of interior design, manufacturing and purchasing-related services for hospitality industries. The Lubner Group provides custom-designed furnishings that are unique to each property, often at a lower price than assembly-production products. Lubner can be reached at 239-292-3717.
