I had the chance to
look at a model room and was absolutely bowled over by its upscale, elegant
decor. Beds are covered in white duvets with red and green accents. There are
soft sheets, comfy new mattresses, and suede-covered headboards that reach to
the ceiling. A sleek, glass desk, contemporary lighting, and a soft green
armless sofa sitting under a copper-lined mirror only adds to the beauty of the
Carpeting and wall coloring is a soft chocolate, and a 32-inch LCD
TV, set in a shallow wall unit, is a real bonus. Baths still have the same brown
and cream marble floors, but that is where the similarity ends – now the sinks
are flat, rectangular wonders set in a stainless steel and frosted glass vanity.
The foyerÂ´s two closets are designed with frosted glass panels set in
rich wood with a vanity in the middle that hides a refrigerator and coffeemaker.
I canÂ´t wait to stay here when the much-needed redo is completed. The garden
wings, desperately in need of renovation, are first in line for the refurbishing
– check with reservations or the resortÂ´s front desk before booking.
Complete Guestroom Makeover for Disney’s Polynesian
Over the next twelve months until summer of 2006, the
Polynesian Resort will undergo a dramatic room redo sure to please.
Staying with a South Seas style, the new look will be more sophisticated and
sleeker. Tall bamboo and rattan headboards sit above lovely queen beds covered
in a batik spread in shades of rich orange and brown; new mattresses
and softer sheets are also part of the package. An upholstered, rattan easy
chair with ottoman sits in the corner, and carpeting is a fun, batik print in
chocolate and beige hues. A daybed sits below a hand-carved mirror. A beautiful
bureau offers six drawers and a desk at one end, and built into the wall above
it is a 32-inch flat-screen TV. The foyerÂ´s two closets, designed of soft, blond
wood, has a vanity in the middle that hides a refrigerator and coffeemaker. It’s
going to be great!
