SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Singer Jimmy Buffet's successful chain of properties is making its first appearance on the West Coast in the coming months.

Paradise Point Resort & Spa on Vacation Isle Park in Mission Bay is rebranding into a Margaritaville Island Beach Resort, with an anticipated opening of 2020-21.

The existing property will be renovated and converted for an estimated $35 million. It will feature 462 casita-style single-story guest rooms, waterfront views with a mile of beachfront, Margaritaville food and beverage concepts, new recreational activities and family-friendly amenities.

Margaritaville is a global lifestyle brand inspired by the lyrics and lifestyle of singer, songwriter and best-selling author Jimmy Buffett, whose songs evoke a passion for tropical escape and relaxation.

Davidson Hotels & Resorts will operate the property as Paradise Point Resort & Spa until the hotel is reflagged, and will continue to manage the property following the completion of the renovation and rebranding.

Paradise Point's general manager, Michael Stephens tells 10News, "Some of the first things were investing in is restaurants."

Following last years 22 million dollar guest room renovation, the new project will focus on updating the rest of the property and adding new restaurants.

The resort plans to start the conversion project closer to December 2019 and plans to have all three phases of the project complete by 2021.
