Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa Makes A Splash With Its Multi-Million Dollar Lazy River Waterpark
The resort’s $7.1 million waterpark expansion adds a new aquatic attraction to Florida’s west coast
Bonita Springs, Fla. – (November 18, 2016) – Southwest Florida’s iconic Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa, a TripAdvisor “Hall of Fame” resort, today opens its $7.1 million waterpark attraction, the lazy river. The much-anticipated addition includes three, three-story waterslides with two speed slides and one inner-tube slide all totaling 900 feet of winding, thrilling fun. The waterpark also includes a 1,095-foot heated lazy river. Adding one acre to the hotel’s existing two-acre pool area makes Hyatt Regency Coconut Point’s complex one of the largest resort poolscapes in Florida.
The lazy river and its dining and relaxation areas, designed by EDSA architects and built by Manhattan Construction, create a new aquatic attraction within the resort, while complementing the area’s natural beauty with more than 5,000 native Floridian plants and trees. This addition joins the resort’s existing 2,700-square-foot Waterfall Pool with cool water cascades, 5,000-square-foot heated Adventure Pool with a 140-foot corkscrew slide and free-form lagoon-style pool, as well as an adults-only heated pool with an adjacent hot tub. The lazy river water park is open exclusively to registered hotel guests.
“The addition of the lazy river allows us to deliver a unique destination for both families and groups that leverages our year-round tropical climate,” said Brian Kramer, general manager of the resort. “We knew that visitors already enjoyed our engaging pool area, so we wanted to expand on that idea and take it to the next level to create a one-of-a-kind experience on the west coast of Florida.”
In addition to the $4.1 million renovated meeting rooms and ballrooms that debuted earlier this year, the lazy river and water park will serve as a multifunctional recreation area, while also bringing new culinary offerings with both a food truck, serving a seasonal menu of cuisines, and the newly renovated Corkscrew Pool Bar.
