Fantastic Oceanfront Suite

Think about a cool oasis in the heart of a sizzling hot beach scene. Then dream of everything you would fill it with. They're all right here, where we've thought of everything you've ever wished for and more, and created a sprawling one-bedroom suite to fit it all in. You'll begin at the foyer, where the odyssey continues down a hallway and opens up into a living room complete with oh-so-comfy full-size couch and swivel chairs nestled on a plush rug. Immediately, the soothing tones of beige, grays and neutrals complemented by warm wood furnishing and bamboo flooring set the mood for a beach atmosphere kind of life.

Here, the state-of-the-art in-suite Bang & Olufsen entertainment center holds court, starting with the wall-mounted 42" LCD TV with DVD player and AV output for laptop plug-in, Tivoli alarm clock/radio with iPod docking station, delightful Munchie Box, and the most tastefully compiled media library from Whatever/Whenever®. With an extremely oversized work desk that runs the length of the living room under the LCD TV, juiced with High Speed Internet Access and a dual-line cordless phone with voicemail and conference features and full laptop A/V video input via our sophisticated connectivity panel, combining work with pleasure has never been so easy and fun. For a breath of fresh air, go directly to the oversized wraparound balcony where more plush seating awaits for lavish lounging with spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean as its setting. But that's not all.

Make a detour (or a beeline) to the bedroom where the center of attraction is, as always, the king-sized signature W bed with pillow top mattress, crisp 350-thread-count sheets, goose-down comforter and pillows, with a custom-designed headboard glowing amber light that paves the way to slumber. "Ooh" over the walk-in closet or "aah" at the unique wicker, tear drop-shaped decorative accents that also double up as floor lamps of multiple sizes. You might make the large, separate bathroom your final destination, but the fun doesn't end you sink into either an oversized bath tub or walk-in shower with Bliss Spa sink side six bath amenities. Close your eyes, and imagine you're bobbing away in the serenity of the sea!
