The Winds Beach Resort Spring 2012 Newsletter
It’s been a busy winter at The Winds! Our staff has been working hard doing all kinds of maintenance and improvements on the rooms and facilities, upgrading our add-ons for your stays and planning new activities for our guests!
We want to provide guests the best we can offer!

A New Decor And More!

Our philosophy has always been “There’s no standing still in this business you’re either upgrading or falling behind!” All Winter long we’ve been busy improving The Winds continuing to transform the decor of a number of our rooms to the nostalgic beach cottage look that everyone fondly remembers.

We’ve heard many requests for more king beds and we’ve listened to you. We’ve switched our queen beds out for king size in our Azalea Suites and later this spring we will also be changing three bedrooms in each of our six bedroom cottages to one king bed in each bedroom to make them more family friendly. There will still be two doubles in each of the remaining three bedrooms in those cottages. Also six of our Camellia Guest Rooms will have one king bed in them. We’ve also transformed some of our two bedroom units to feature a king size bed with two doubles in the other room.

A number of kitchens and living areas in our suites have new cabinets and tile flooring. Also, our furniture, artwork and bedding are continually being updated to give us a more contemporary look. Also lots and lots of new paint!

We’ve also added a brand new treadmill to the fitness room. This, in addition to the new gym equipment we put in last year, offers all new equipment!  We’ve also resurfaced the indoor pool! Check out all of our improvements on your next visit!

New Wireless Internet

Perhaps one of the biggest improvements at The Winds is our new wireless internet system. We had many problems with our previous system and made the decision to start all over with a new system.  It has been in place since this past fall and our guests seem to be happy with the new system. We apologize to any guests who may have had a problem with the old system and hope they will be pleasantly surprised by our new WiFi!

Ocean Isle & Area Events

There’s a whole lot of good times to be had at the beach this year – festivals, a concert series, fishing and golf tournaments and more.
