Clearwater Beach, Florida
Wyndham Grand Resort Clearwater Beach opened on January 21st, and is already making a splash amongst travel enthusiasts as one of the most exciting new oceanfront resorts in the country. Sitting along the Gulf of Mexico in the west central area of Florida, each of the 343 guestrooms has an unrivaled view of either the water or the nearby marina. You can walk out onto your balcony or terrace to get a great view of the sunrise or sunset every day you’re out there. The modern décor is said to have been inspired by the pristine-sugar white sands, the azure waters of the Gulf of Mexico, and the warm trade winds that welcome you each day.
Clearwater Beach provides the perfect atmosphere for all types of vacations, whether you’re adventuring out with the family or planning a romantic rendezvous with that special someone. Lounge out on the spacious sundeck along the shimmering outdoor pool and the ever-relaxing whirlpool. Keep up with your workouts at the third floor fitness center, or treat yourself to the soothing treatments and healing hands of the therapists at the full service Pallavi Spa.

West Oahu, Hawaii
Atlantis Ko Olina is as much of a historical accomplishment as it is a hospitality accomplishment. The resort will be the first Atlantis property in the United States. Joining in the west coast’s Ko Olina resort community, the Atlantis property will rest between Ko Olina Resort’s Kohola Lagoon 1 and Honu Lagoon 2.
Spread out over 26 acres, Atlantis Ko Olina will introduce two hotels and condominiums to the hospitality market in Hawaii, featuring about 800 guest rooms and suites, 524 residences, and plenty of on-site amenities. Guests have plenty of options for restaurants, bars, retail boutique, shopping, and more. Atlantis Ko Olina features a Beach Club, a spa and fitness center, an aquarium, and event space for special occasions. At this stage, the resort simply has the green light; Oceanwide Hawaii hasn’t released information about the total cost, the architect and general contractor assignment for the project, or the completion date. But considering the architectural beauty of Atlantis resorts coupled with the exciting Hawaiian atmosphere, we couldn’t be more excited!
