Casa Domo, Casa Isabel and Casa del Sol, the beachfront villas with spectacular ocean views, were completely revamped with such features as soothing white polished cement floors, walk-in closets, new jacuzzis and stunning Mexican chic decor – highlighted by stylish sofas in exotic colors, embroidered cushions, hand-painted accents and Mexican art work. The new master bathrooms are exceptionally large and beautifully apppointed, including vanity area and oversize showers with two showerheads. In Casa del Sol, the Presidential Villa, doors open competely to a newly enlarged terrace with a new infinity pool offering comfortable and luxurious indoor-outdoor living.

Exhibits are rotated throughout the year, showcasing a variety of artists and styles.
Estrella Azul, the “Blue Star,” is an inviting new rooftop lounge decorated in shades of blue where cocktails are sipped while enjoying extraordinarily colorful sunsets and  gazing through the telescope at the sea of stars above.
