Wequassett Resort and Golf Club, located on Cape Cod in East Harwich, Massachusetts, is one of the country’s premiere destinations for leisure and business travelers. Situated on 27 acres that overlooks Pleasant Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, the property boasts 120 luxurious guest rooms and suites, four restaurants, two swimming pools, two beaches, four Har-Tru tennis courts, an 18- hole championship golf course, and 20,000 SF. of indoor meeting space complemented by 10,000 SF of spectacular outdoor waterfront space for weddings and events. A member of Preferred Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc., Wequassett Resort and Golf Club recently earned coveted Five Star recognition by Forbes Travel Guide, making it one of only 76 hotels nationwide to receive this distinction.
Anthi Frangiadis Associates, (AFA) enjoys an ongoing consulting relationship with the resort’s leadership team, and is considered a valued partner in helping the property create and deliver an exceptional guest experience. Beyond establishing a unique sense of place through architectural design and interiors, the design team works to offer innovative solutions to improve operations, meet environmental requirements, and maximize the flexibility of public spaces. Wequassett Resort and Golf Club’s exclusive stature and location within an environmentally sensitive area present distinct challenges. Guest service must be exemplary at all times, requiring that all site improvements be completed within the four-month time frame when the resort is closed following the holidays – no matter how large or complex the project and regardless of weather delays.
Additionally, permitting must be proactive to allow adequate time for approvals. The key to AFA’s success consists of a comprehensive and meticulous planning process with many team members that minimizes the possibilities for surprises. Multiple engagements have resulted in significant improvements to the resort property since 2007.
