As the first new hotel opening in San Juan of 2018, Serafina Beach Hotel offers 96 contemporary guest rooms which feature floor-to-ceiling windows and boast dramatic views of the Atlantic Ocean or the adjacent Laguna del Condado, three new dining options including their signature aMare restaurant, the energetic PiñaCo Bar and By the Pool, the hotel's sexy oceanfront infinity poolside lounge as well as three private indoor-outdoor meeting and event spaces.

Designed by New York-based design and branding studio, ICRAVE, Serafina Beach Hotel emanates a youthful, sexy and playful vibe that lends homage to the surrounding Atlantic Ocean and neighboring Laguna del Condado.

Located just 10 minutes from the San Juan Luis Muñoz Marín Airport (SJU) and perched on the breaking waves of the Atlantic, the hotel design draws the ocean in through tones of blue, sea-glass greens, foam whites and driftwood greys.

The subtle and chic approach to the interior spaces is enhanced by bohemian accents, landscape elements, and pops of fresh art by way of native Puerto Rican artists such as Sofia Maldonado and Gerardo Cloquell, whose abstract murals inject an edgy viewpoint.

Each of the 96 contemporary guest rooms at Serafina Beach Hotel measure at 325 square feet and feature oversized floor-to-ceiling windows, which deliver stunning, almost surreal views of the ocean to the north, and over the Laguna del Condado and glowing city night lights to the south.

The hotel's five signature Serafina Oceanfront Terrace rooms feature an airy 140 square foot exterior balcony that extends over the playful pool deck. The unique Positano Ocean Terrace Room, includes a 280 square foot oceanfront terrace with panoramic views and a coastal vibe.

Serafina Restaurant Group will introduce three new dining concepts at the hotel, including the signature aMare Restaurant, serving Mediterranean and seafood cuisine fused with local Puerto Rican flavors, the lively PiñaCo Bar that will offer a rich selection of Caribbean rums, light bites, cold pressed juices, detox shots and refreshing handcrafted cocktails; by day PiñaCo will feature Gustos Coffee, Puerto Rico's finest artisan coffee.

At Serafina Beach Hotel's poolside lounge, By the Pool, guests can soak in San Juan's rays while sipping on vibrant cocktails by the freshwater, ocean-front infinity-edge pool.

All food and beverage venues were designed to be social gathering spaces to encourage guests and locals to mingle at San Juan's newest hot spot.

For groups and larger parties, Serafina Beach Hotel also offers three private indoor and outdoor venues that integrates the hotel's youthful sophistication and relaxed setting to provide the perfect location to host business groups, celebrate milestone celebrations and weddings.

Whether it's in the oceanfront aMare terrace, the Mediterranean ballroom, or the vibrant pool deck, the Serafina Beach Hotel staff will work closely with guests to create memorable and personalized events and gatherings.

Embracing the vibrant culture of Puerto Rico, the hotel's "Experience the Island" concierge service provides guests direct access to authentic and thrilling ways to experience the area such as nightly kayak excursions in the neighboring Laguna, private helicopter tours, culinary experiences, and expert guided tours through the historic and colorful city of Old San Juan, home to three UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
