The area where the wall previously blocked guess entry is now gone and all are officially welcome to explore the new outside area!
The walkway leading up to the resort is lined with palm trees, plants, and a beautiful view of the lake.
Lamp posts and directional signs are also in place around the area to assist guests.
The walkway connecting the main lobby to the Gran Destino lobby isn’t open yet, but it appears to be completed.
lining the front of the new area are these great looking wood benches with a decorative mosaic on top and on the back.
The benches could get hot in the extreme summer heat so be careful when sitting!
The area features large open areas with artificial grass. There is a temporary stage in place for the grand opening ceremony coming up.
Here’s a look at the new resort map which is in multiple locations around the resort.
Here’s a better look at the long hallway that will connect the tower to the rest of the resort.
Over to the left side, there is a very large fire pit area that can be shared with multiple people. While I don’t think this will be used much in the summer, it could be a great feature to have in the colder winter months.
Some other patches of plants are located in pathways.
Overall the greenery adds a tremendous atmosphere and the new outdoor area looks fantastic.
Over toward the front of the resort, we got our first look at the completed bus loop that will transport all resort guests to the parks.
Each station includes a map of the resort, instructions on “boarding the bus”, and a TV with bus arrival time guides.
Finally, this strip at the very top of the front of the tower will be THE place to view fireworks each night.
Gran Destino Tower is less than a week away from opening and we’re so excited to stay here!
