Earlier this summer, the resort unveiled a new blue-hued outdoor oasis called Indigo Pool & Bar, which features 10 regular cabanas, along with a larger VIP cabana.

The pool area also features a first-ever complimentary poolside sunglass concierge, who will tighten and care for guest’s shades, as well as a pop-up poolside shop offering Oliver Peoples fashion eyewear.
