San Antonio — with its stable and diverse economy, fast-growing manufacturing and strong military investment, medical providers and energy industries, and flourishing tourism industry with more than 26 million visitors annually — demonstrated how it is possible to dodge recession. To keep up with the growing demand, the hospitality sector is highly attentive to client satisfaction, thus improvement works are part of the blooming industry.
After several months of planning, La Cantera Hill Country Resort, managed by Destination Hotels & Resorts, has finalized the multimillion-dollar transformation plan that will impact its entire 250-acre footprint. The plan will constitute the most extensive upgrade the resort has received since its opening in 1999.
The plan consists of the construction of a new, freestanding destination spa, contemporary pools and family areas. The San Saba Courtyard is scheduled to get a complete redesign, including a new event lawn. The front entrance will be reconfigured, as well as the lobby and lobby bar. A junior ballroom, expanded meeting and convention space, an dredesigned restaurants, bars and lounge concepts will also receive a facelift.
“Because the magnitude and impact of the project will prevent our associates from providing our guests with our customary offerings and services, the resort will suspend overnight accommodations and restaurant operations during the major phase of construction, from Nov. 3, 2014, through early April 2015,” said resort Vice President & Managing Director John Spomer.
Both golf courses and their clubhouses and event venues will remain open and operate as usual during renovation.
