An Arorangi-based resort is reopening its renovated pool area after guest-friendly closures for upgrades, offering complimentary Wi-Fi and breakfast as thanks for patience.

The Edgewater Resort and Spa took advantage of the low season occupancy at the start of 2024 and kicked into renovation works and revitalising the well-known pool area.

Through their renovation works, the management and staff will be reopening its resort pool on Monday, March 18.

In a statement, Andrew Moros, sales and marketing manager, Island Hotels Limited, said that after undergoing extensive renovations since January 22, guests are invited to experience the revitalised pool area.

Moros said during the renovation period, the resort ensured guest comfort and satisfaction by providing a temporary pool onsite and granting access to the sister resort pool for guests aged 18 and over.

Additionally, as a gesture of gratitude for guests’ patience and understanding, complimentary Wi-Fi was offered throughout their entire stay, along with a complimentary upgrade to a cooked buffet breakfast daily.

Moros said that to commemorate this significant milestone, a special reopening ceremony will be hosted on Monday at 8am and the ceremony will commence with a traditional blessing of the pool by Orometua, Papa John Andrew, followed by a heart-warming song performed by the dedicated housekeeping team.

Melissa Gosselin, general manager of the resort, said: “We are proud to unveil the newly renovated pool and express our gratitude to our guests for their patience during the renovation period.”

“The reopening ceremony promises to be a memorable event, and we look forward to welcoming our guests to celebrate with us.”

In addition to the reopening ceremony, guests can look forward to a host of exciting activities and amenities at the poolside activities hut, ensuring an unforgettable experience for all.
