Festiva Atlantic Beach Owners: we have an important update regarding your favorite beach destination. Due to the catastrophic damage caused to the region in September 2018 by Hurricane Florence, it’s necessary for Festiva’s Atlantic Beach Resort to remain closed through November 2019. This is necessary to ensure that the repairs are done correctly and thoroughly in the wake of all water and wind damage that was caused by this historic storm.
If you are an owner at Atlantic Beach Resort in Phase II or Phase III whose week has been impacted by the hurricane, you should have received emails from us as we’ve gotten the updated information. We have also sent mailed letters to all owners with impacted weeks. If you have not received communication from us, please contact Festiva’s Owner Services to ensure that we have your current contact information. If you have a reservation at Atlantic Beach Resort but you are not an owner there, please contact the entity that confirmed your reservation, if you have not already heard from them.
We realize this news is not what vacationers who love Atlantic Beach want to hear, but it is the reality of cleaning up in the aftermath of a major hurricane that devastated the entire town. Resources are scarce, and it takes time to receive insurance funds, formulate a plan, secure contractors, and rebuild. Virtually every resort in the area is going through the same process.
You can view our previous blog post update for more detailed information on the damage. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this act of God has caused, and we are working as fast as we can to get this problem resolved as soon as possible.
Atlantic Beach Resort Will Emerge Better Than Ever
With that said, every cloud has a silver lining, and we’re planning to restore Atlantic Beach Resort and make it into the best it’s ever been. Phase 2, the larger phase, suffered more extensive damage during the storm and is being completely gutted and renovated.
Phase 3 is smaller and suffered less severe damage, so work there will focus on repairs instead of a complete renovation.
Below are conceptual renderings of the planned renovations for Phase 2, with all new furnishings, lightings, paint, flooring, fixtures, appliances, and electronics. It will be a whole new experience at Atlantic Beach. Once again, we thank you for your patience, and we will continue to update the situation at Atlantic Beach Resort as renovations and repairs are made.
