This work will be completely finished for the day of starting hotel operations, this action will greatly benefit for owners and users, improving the image and giving and extra value of the housing complex.
The Fives are still working in the landscaping. We started planting 35 coconut palms, which were distributed throughout the resort.
Now we continue this work planting 4 more palms in the Beach Club and we are remodeling the landscaping in the green areas of the Resort and at the entrance to each building.
The use of colors is one of the keys of any garden. The selection of plants and flowers is essential, whereby we have chosen a variety of ornamental plants and brightly colored flowers appropriate for exterior. Assorted green palms now are accompanied by yellow, red, pink and even purple glinks. Set of “Robellini Palm” accompanied by “Croton Petra” and “Rosa Laurel”. “Purple Maguey” have been planted in the main walkways, “Bella on Boat” have been planted in the stems of palm trees. “White Ficus” and “Dwarf Bougainvillea” hedges; “Rain of Gold”, “Red Dracena”, “Red Acalypha”, Varigato Tulip… An exquisite combination of vegetation which gets amazing effects giving a real touch of beauty with nice contrasts to the Resort.
