There are also new features available to customers such as the pool and cabana area with a lazy river as well as a swim-up pool bar, full service spa with sauna, treatment rooms, and a state-of-the-art fitness center.

Everyone deserves to treat themselves every once in a while. Retreat Pool and Cabanas offer guests a chance to relax, soak up the sun and escape into a picturesque oasis.
