Marriott's Barony Beach Beach Club


One of Marriott’s Vacation Club International’s most beautiful beach locations! This 255-unit oceanfront resort highlights the curves that I enjoy developing in my landscapes. As Senior Project Manager, I was tasked with the master planning, entitlements and full landscape architectural services for this facility.

The goal in designing this resort pool area was to cater to the needs of all of the guests from young to old, small to large crowds, providing spaces that everyone can call their own and using the natural environment to its greatest potential.

As Senior Project Manager for preparation of redevelopment plans for this Caribbean beachfront resort, my team and I focused on identifying elements that would bring this resort from a AAA rating of 2 stars to 4 stars. We identified opportunities and constraints, prepared conceptual diagrams of how the resort could be redeveloped and, most importantly, how it can be phased to maintain revenue and minimize impact on guests throughout the redevelopment process.
