Luxury Monterey Bay Resort Unveils Dramatic Upgrades

Luxury Monterey Bay Resort Unveils Dramatic Upgrades

APTOS, Calif., October 1, 2014 – Seascape Beach Resort, recognized as one of the premier coastal conference centers in California, unveiled dramatic upgrades to the resort lobby, front desk, 17,000-square-feet of conference space, and Sanderlings Restaurant and Lounge. The seven-month, $1.5-million refurbishment transformed the resort’s atmosphere with casually elegant styling.

Reclaimed, wine-barrel wood was handcrafted into a custom front desk and a 100-year-old, local elm tree was used in the construction lobby tables. Janene Bourgerie Cayton’s design studio oversaw the upscale lobby and front desk plans, while local artist Sam Schnaible designed and created the custom pieces.

As part of the resort’s upgrades, the 15 conference and banquet rooms, with spectacular ocean views, received floor to ceiling upgrades along with new ergonomic chairs and efficient break stations and capacities for every meeting configuration.

The award-winning Sanderlings Restaurant and Lounge also feature new wood tables, wood floors and a custom, reclaimed elm-tree wood bar in the lounge for a stunning first impression for that much-deserved beverage after a long, productive day.

“It is really a dramatic change for us,” said Jim Maggio, General Manager at Seascape Beach Resort. “Plus, the project represents a great way to reuse materials.”

Seascape Beach Resort opened in 1993 and today offers 285 spacious deluxe suites and one and two bedroom beach villas with fully equipped kitchens or kitchenettes, fireplaces and private balconies with dramatic breathtaking views of the majestic Monterey Bay. In addition to all the comforts of home, this Four-Diamond resort’s 17 miles of secluded beachfront property spans the entire resort and provides a myriad of options for groups to hold team-building programs, themed events and beach parties.

“Our repeat leisure guests and corporate groups are the foundation of our resort,” Maggio said, “and I’m sure they will do a double-take with our new look, especially as they enter the new lobby.”
