A project of this prestige drew the interest of hospitality experts from around the world. Our process began with identifying and vetting the interior designer, project architect, local contractor, and architect of record – establishing an international design and construction team best suited to help our client achieve their goals. Educating ourselves in Dominican importation procedures, taxation, and local labor practices, we navigated language and cultural barriers, an ambiguous regulatory process, and a complicated tourist district tax benefits program to maximize the budget. Additionally, we extended the scope of renovations by a third – all without exceeding the original project budget.
What began as a renovation project evolved into a nearly complete rebuild of 300 guest rooms and suites, meeting and event space, restaurants, common areas, and lobby. These efforts also included new duct work, kitchens, pool, deck, replacement of two roof structures, MEP systems upgrades, windows and glazing, and life safety systems. No small feat – but a necessary adjustment to achieve Marriott’s vision for this high-performing retreat.
RETURN TO GRANDEUR. RETURN TO THE COMMUNITY.
Upon opening in 2015, the new Renaissance Jaragua exceeded client and guest expectations, offering a modern, uniquely beautiful, and luxurious Caribbean experience for this flagship Marriott property – restoring a historic, iconic resort to its former grandeur, and giving its community a landmark to call their own again.
