Accommodations range in size (the Deluxe Ocean View room, for example, is 475 square feet while the Preferred Club Presidential Suite is 2,917 square feet), but each space offers luxurious amenities to guests.

NTX installed an audio system, video system and lighting control system in every guest room, as well as the hall areas.

The Red Vine Piano Lounge is one of the resort’s six bars and lounges. This venue was outfitted with a high-performance dual-channel amplifier, six ceiling speakers, and microphones to be used by the musicians and presenters.

In addition, ceiling loudspeakers were installed in every restaurant. The hotel offers “Unlimited-Luxury” privileges, which include all premium wines, beers and top-shelf beverages, making these areas popular destinations that were enhanced by audio systems.

The trio of heated pools was equipped with weatherproof audio systems. Video conferencing systems were installed in the boardrooms and convention centers. Inside the theater, NTX installed an analog 16-channel mixer and compact (but powerful) subwoofer and speakers.

Long hours went into such a complex automation system. One moment that stands out during the project was seeing the final result of designing a hybrid CATV system.

“It took us a few nights to have it finally working, but until the on-command guys jumped in and started messing with it, we finally came together and had over 600 CATV connection points working,” recalls Suero.

NTX considers the project’s greatest achievement to be the implementation of the lighting control system. Far from a series of recessed lights, this system illuminates the dressing rooms, the hydrotherapy cabins, the reception and offices of the spa, as well as all of the rooms, halls, restaurants, bars, and boardrooms. The company was also pleased with its installation of mobile lighting and audio equipment for the theater.

“The client was completely satisfied with the project,” says Lino. “A contemporary, adults-only, elegant hotel needed an automated system practically invisible that went along with the unlimited luxury of a world-class resort.”
