Spa Remodel

The big project this winter at Rosario Resort on has been our spa restoration and renovation. It has been awhile since the fiberglass coating on the pool has been repaired. Here is a picture of it before painting...

The former boutique area is becoming a relaxation area for guest enjoyment pre and post therapy treatments. This is the Moran Mansion's former recreation area and the tile work is amazing!

In searching for leaks, we stripped the dry wall to the original concrete walls, uncovering a few hidden windows and the original paint colors of the stucco wall (notice the mustard color halfway up).

Here is another original color on one wall with a mysterious oval and iron hook. When looking very closely at an original Moran picture of the area, we discovered this was where a moose head had hung!
