Take a deep breath. Do you feel invigorated? That's the effect of clean air, which you'll find in unlimited quantities at our resort thanks to our Breathe Westin® initiative. We're dedicated to providing a comfortable and healthy environment for our guests. Guests are asked to refrain from smoking in all enclosed public areas, including the villas. The balcony or lanai of the villa, if so equipped, is a designated smoking area. A fee may be charged to cover the expense of restoring the smoke-free environment of our villas. In addition, the resort observes local and state smoking ordinances that may prohibit smoking in some public places.
