Bikini Beach Resort Renovation
The Bikini Beach Resort in Panama City Beach, Fla. has undergone a total renovation, blending its Old Florida feel with modern amenities and design to create a new experience for guests.
Over the past year, the hotel lobby and rooms have all been updated – along with the addition of 14 brand new rooms, bringing the hotel to 100 total guest rooms. A North parking lot was added for ease of transportation.
New Bikini Beach Resort amenities include …
- 100 total rooms
- New interior and exterior paint, plus new hotel sign
- Upgraded full bar with swinging chairs
- Grassy, open area for lounging or special events
- Strongest available Wi-Fi
- New furnishings and paint
The entire property now feels new. But there’s one thing that hasn’t changed – the nostalgic charm that longtime guests have come to love.
“We were able to take a dated smaller property and add more units without overwhelming the beachfront footprint,” says General Manager Russell Kinslow. “We infused the old with the new to embrace the vintage vibe, while updating it to give guests the modern amenities and design they expect.”
One way the renovation team accomplished the careful balance was to restore the original terrazzo floor from the 1960s to a clean, modern finish.
“During the renovation process, we were dedicated to keeping or restoring as much as we could,” says president and CEO of Innisfree Hotels Ted Ent. “We didn’t want to lose what made this a classic property by rebuilding. Instead, we’ve made updates that will delight guests both old and new.”
