The updated luxury interiors capture the essence of the boutique resort’s beachfront location in a palette of soft blues and mint greens against white and sandy-hued backdrops, with warm and washed wood tones, linen-inspired upholstery, and elegant mirror and satin nickel surfaces.
“The rooms have a lighter look but retain a sophisticated ambience,” said Ron Albeit, general manager for Marco Beach Ocean Resort.
Each of the 78 one-bedroom and 15 two-bedroom suites offers a kitchenette, spacious living room and private balcony overlooking the Gulf of Mexico or lush garden terraces.
Smart TVs were also installed in each suite and allow complimentary access to the internet.
Marc-Michaels Interior Design was the interior designer for both the new guest suites and Gulf Ballroom.
Rebecca Masterson of Marc-Michaels describes the new guest interiors as “airy, beachy and fresh, with a clean feeling. Instead of accessories, the focus is more on the artwork.”
The redesign of the Gulf Ballroom replaced Tuscan colors, treatments and traditional aesthetic with soft grasscloth walls, carpeting with deep turquoise undertones, and sandy draperies that frame Gulf views through large picture windows.
“The lighter colors highlight the ballroom’s incredible Gulf of Mexico views and minimize the separation between indoor and outdoor spaces,” said Albeit.
Known for its Gulf-front location, breathtaking views, intimate environment and personalized service, Marco Beach Ocean Resort features a variety of dining options ranging from beachfront casual to authentic Italian cuisine at the elegant, award-winning Sale e Pepe restaurant; spa and fitness center; rooftop garden; and direct access to four miles of the island’s famed sugar-sand beaches. The resort’s location and amenities make it the perfect choice for vacations, destination weddings and executive business meetings.
