Clearwater Beach's New Sandpearl Resort Unveils To The Public Tampa Bay's Newest Luxury Beach Club

CLEARWATER BEACH, FL (April 9, 2007) – Coral Hospitality has appointed DJ Jones as Director of the Sandpearl Resort’s Beach Club, an exclusive membership offering club-style amenities, priority access to resort facilities, and personal services. The 253-room, eight-story luxury hotel will be the first new beachfront resort on Clearwater Beach in over 25 years, and will feature a lagoon-style pool with private cabanas, a signature restaurant, full-service spa, meeting & event space, and a selection of enrichment programs.

Jones brings a successful combination of hospitality and residential marketing, most recently serving as director of sales and marketing of Genesis Designer Homes, a Savannah, Ga., based residential homebuilder with over $40 million in annual revenues. Other past positions include sales executive of Ryland Homes in the Ohio Valley and Tampa, Fla., divisions and director of sales at the Residence Inn by Marriott at the Cincinnati Airport. While in both positions, Jones was awarded “Sales Rookie of the Year.” She also received Ryland Homes’ top honor for sales, the Emerald Award, which recognizes achievement in sales, leadership and training. Jones earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology from Boston College.

“The Beach Club is one of the unique aspects of the Sandpearl Resort to the Clearwater area,” stated Stuart Arp, General Manager of the Sandpearl Resort. “Jones’ past experiences in hospitality and marketing make her the ideal person to introduce this concept to area residents.”

In her new position, Jones will be responsible for marketing the equivalent of a lavish beach home, but at a fraction of the cost. The Sandpearl Resort’s Beach Club will offer 300 memberships, which will go on sale to the public on May 1, 2007.

Jones and the current Sandpearl Resort team are in the pre-opening office located at 600 Cleveland Street in Clearwater until the resort opens.
