Among the recent improvements promoted by Enjoy, it can be highlighted the renovation of the casino, the opening of the OVO Nightclub in 2014, the hippest nightclub in Punta del Este, and the OVO Beach parador in 2015. In 2019, the resort opened a large, modern heated pool of international standards.

Furthermore, in response to its role as a local and international reference company, Enjoy Punta del Este focused on promoting sustainable policies and responsible environmental management.

In this way, it was distinguished in 2019 and 2020 with the Energy Efficiency Certificate (CEE), an award granted by the Ministry of Industry, Energy and Mining to energy efficiency measures successfully implemented by candidates, in an effort to contribute to achieving the goal established in the National Energy Efficiency Plan 2015-2024.

In the two editions of CEE, the resort presented measures to replace traditional lighting fixtures with LED technology implemented in 2016 (CEE2018) and 2018 (CEE2019), a significant project carried out in all its facilities.

This initiative, in turn, is part of another set of actions that aim to comply with the principles of the Sustainability Program that the establishment carries out with the objective of preserving the environment and taking care of natural resources.

Meanwhile, in a clear demonstration of its efforts to develop new lines of business
capable of adapting to current times, to the most diverse social, economic and health contexts and to the needs of users, the resort developed, an online gaming platform in the "Social Casino" format.

This company's proposal brings a new form of entertainment for users, allowing them to access slot machines, bingo, poker, virtual roulette and black jack from their mobile devices or computers, from anywhere.

This casino format allows people to play, but not earn money in return, but participate in Enjoy Club points, Enjoy's loyalty program, and can redeem them for excellent benefits, such as hotel stays, spa days and consumption in different restaurant chains.
