The Abbey Resort in Fontana, Wis., has recently completed renovations that improved their 334 guest rooms, upgraded their outdoor hot tub, and added waterslides to their kids' pool and new features to the toddler-friendly splash pad. The resort is situated on the shores of Geneva Lake, which inspires the nautical theme of their guest rooms.  With plush new bedding, carpeting, paint and sofa sleepers, guests will appreciate the comfort of Abbey Resort's updated spaces.

“As one of the most reputable resorts in the area, we know our loyal patrons expect us to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to renovations,” says Sara Schmitz, marketing director for the property. “We strive for excellence in hospitality in all we do, and we are confident our guests this summer will be pleased with the crisp, clean feel of our refreshed guest rooms, and they will enjoy the updates to our outdoor pool areas.”

The renovations that took place over the last year are part of a four-year program aimed at updating the facilities at Abbey Resort. They have touched nearly every part of the property, including two bars and a coffee shop, lounge areas, the 35,000-square-foot Avani Spa, the iconic A-frame that makes up the exterior of the building, the entryway and lobby, and meeting and banquet facilities.

“Over the past four years, we have put a great deal of effort into elevating the guest experience through the completion of major property renovations,” says Schmitz. “We are delighted to show this commitment to excellence across the board at The Abbey Resort.”

The SaaS platform, Wix.com, has released a new builder for business owners, planners and venue operators to create customized seating maps. Users can also assign ticket pricing based on the location of individual seats, and any variation of seating can be mapped, including tables, rows of seats, areas with general seating (e.g., a standing-room-only area), reserved VIP sections, or a combination of options.
