Resort Renovation with Minimal Disruptions
DiamondHead is a landmark beach resort located within the entertainment district of Fort
Myers Beach. A variety of renovations were completed and SunStream’s technical services team
orchestrated a complex strategy. As a fully operational resort, all work needed to be performed
quickly and in a manner that was least disruptive to paying guests. In the end, the resort would
receive a complete makeover for guests to enjoy for years to come.
The renovation plan included several projects that were complex even as stand-alone projects.
Cabañas Beach Bar and Grille received a complete overhaul that included rebuilding and
relocating the bar, adding additional beach seating, and updating the overall restaurant design.
The pool and spas were drained and resurfaced while the entire pool deck was outfitted with
new pavers and furniture. The exterior of the building was updated to a new color which involved
repainting every exterior surface including balconies. Lastly, all standard suites were remodeled to
include new flooring, cabinetry, granite surfaces and tile showers.
The entire cost of the project was $3.2M and was completed within a 2-year period. The technical
services team organized all work into carefully planned segments to minimize its impact on guest
experience and revenue generation. Our team completed an incredibly complex task within a very
controlled environment. The transformation was impressive and very well received by guests and
