By Camelia Bulea, Associate Editor

Woodbine Development Corp. recently unveiled interesting details regarding the $35 million renovation and expansion of its Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa in San Antonio.

“While much of what this resort offers is about tradition, we want to reward our loyal guests with new experiences and capture group customers who needed more function space than we were able to provide in the past,” said John Field Scovell, CEO & president of Woodbine.

According to an official statement, the transformation includes:

  • Updating all 500 guestrooms to include amenities like a Hyatt Grand Bed mattress and an oversize granite-top vanity in the bathroom.
  • Doubling the indoor function space from 35,000 square feet to about 70,000  with the addition of a 20,000-square-foot ballroom and 12,000 square feet of outdoor garden event spaces.
  • Replacing the existing plants and trees with plants that are native to the Lone Star State. The final enhancements to the resort will also include extensive exterior landscaping and energy-efficient LED lighting.
  • Adding a wave machine and tower slide to the resort’s water playground, which will be expanded from four acres to five. Plus, the Hyatt will also boast a 22-foot-tall tower slide.

The renovation project will be completed in two phases: The guestrooms renovation project will be in progress through March 2, 2013, while the ballroom and meeting space expansion will be complete by September 2013.

Apart from Woodbine, which is managing the project, the team also includes HKS Hill Glazier Studio, the architect of record; Hardin Construction Co. as general contractor; WATG and Wimberly Interiors providing interior design services.
