I Care & They Matter -The Zen of Hand-Crafting the Right Drink for the Right Guest at Terranea Resort

In this day and age of global marketing... Where can you get something unique? Something made especially for you? From clothing to coffee.. you can travel the world and find the same brands, same style, same flavors. Sure that creates comfort and familiarity for the unadventurous.  But for many tourists, especially high calibre 5 Star resort clientele, there is still the desire for custom attention, a sense of uniqueness, something made exactly for them...


When I was a little girl, my father was in the Air Force, and we were stationed in England. On vacation in Venice, Italy, I still remember the tiny turquoise stallion handcrafted for me out of glass. That magical aura of an artisan building a jewel, a treasure in front of your very eyes, to then extend it out to you, for you to enjoy in your own hands! I experience that sharing of hospitality daily: Welcoming each individual to Terranea with unique  handcrafted custom made beverages, greetings of warmth and attention, information and caring. The Lobby Bar is where they first relax, shake off the dust of the city, and settle in.  It is where I demonstrate: I Care & They Matter.

Jillian Gotlib - Creative Mixologist, The Lobby Bar at Terranea Resort

I have been here from the beginning and love being a part of this great resort!  Having grown up in Europe I was privileged to meet people from many different cultures, and experienced many different customs and cuisines.  It has long been a dream of mine to welcome guests and serve up magical memories in a spectacular oceanfront setting... Until Terranea Resort was created, my dream was on hold!  It is such a joy seeing it evolve, contributing to return patronage, and helping to build Terranea’s great reputation and success!
