Orlando’s Newest Family Vacation Resort Makes Its Debut

The Grove Resort & Spa

Developing a new vacation resort that will capture the imagination of visitors to Orlando, Florida is no easy task. Making it unique in every way may seem impossible – until now. The Grove Resort & Spa, Orlando’s newest and most exciting vacation resort destination, is poised to be one of its most popular as well. Located in the vibrant corridor just west of Walt Disney World® Resort, The Grove is built on one of the area’s last pristine preserve settings. This location is reminiscent of “Old Florida” – private and serene – but is just five minutes from the excitement of Orlando’s world-famous theme parks. Here, in Orlando’s native woodlands and lake country, The Grove Resort & Spa offers the opportunity to own a vacation home at a luxurious resort in a family-friendly environment.

With the addition of onsite hotel management group Benchmark Hospitality International, the resort is ideally poised to cater to the needs of its owners and guests. The Grove offers owners the unique opportunity to vacation in their own condominium residence while enjoying all of the amenities of a world-class resort hotel, including room service, housekeeping and round-the-clock maintenance. When they’re away, they can include their residence in the resort’s hotel rental program, where guests will enjoy the hospitality and service for which Benchmark Hospitality International is known.

Offering 878 premium residences in three phases for sale from the $250,000s, now is the ideal time to discover all that The Grove Resort & Spa has to offer.

“The Grove Resort & Spa brings a new level of comfort, activities, relaxation, fun and amenities to families interested in owning or vacationing in Orlando.”


A Site To Behold

The Grove Resort & Spa is ideally located just five minutes west of the Walt Disney World® entrance, and just minutes to the 20 major theme and water parks that attract 66 million visitors to Orlando annually, including Universal Studios Florida®, SeaWorld® and LEGOLAND®. The Grove sits on 110 acres overlooking the natural beauty of Lake Austin and is secluded from the noise, neon glare and traffic of competing resorts. Adjacent to a nature preserve, owners and guests have the unique opportunity to experience Florida at its best – naturally.

The richly appointed Valencia restaurant is the ideal spot for any meal of the day. Take a peek into the chic, club-like Zest Lounge, or make your appointment for a relaxing facial or massage at Escape Spa and fitness center.

Cool Off, Splash Around, Catch a Wave

Nothing is more refreshing than making a splash in the crystal blue water of a sparkling swimming pool. At The Grove Resort & Spa, we take water to whole new level. Our resort gives you all kinds of ways to enjoy the Florida sun with two themed water recreation areas. The Springs resort pools are the perfect place to unwind. Each of the three, oversized freeform pools is designed for unique experiences and views of Lake Austin. The Springs Bar & Grill enables you to splash away the day and have full food and beverage service whenever you desire. With an oversized spa and plenty of loungers alongside each pool, you’ll never want your day to end. The Springs is strategically located for relaxation, located at the quiet end of the resort. It’s just the right spot to read a great book, take a lazy nap or indulge in a refreshing cocktail poolside.

If you’re looking for a more exciting water experience for the whole family to enjoy, Surfari Water Park is the place to be. This is a water experience you won’t soon forget. A meandering lazy river is the coolest way to see all action. Cascading waterfalls, water cannons and overhead bridges ensure that a trip around this lazy river isn’t “too lazy!” The daredevil in you will want to check out our state-of-the-art surf simulator – the only one of its kind in any Central Florida hotel or vacation home resort. Here you can experience the thrill of catching a big wave on our Surfari surfboards. You’ll be the Big Kahoona on this shore! Never content to bring you the basics, we thought of everything at Surfari Water Park. There is a complete children’s play pool and splash zone and a giant zero-entry resort pool. Longboard Bar & Grill is right in the center of it all, so you can enjoy tasty snacks, burgers, drinks and treats then get right back in the action. Our sports court stands ready for a quick game of hoops – ideal for a good warm-up before all the water activities.

Maybe we should have called ourselves The Grove Resort “Water Thrill Park” & Spa!


In Tune With Nature

With jogging paths, walkways, boardwalks, barbecue and picnic areas, The Grove Resort & Spa gives you unique and unspoiled settings to enjoy a very active vacation. A canoe trip, paddle boarding and electric motor boat cruising are all available to get you out there enjoying the Florida sunshine on our very own protected and private 20-acre Lake Austin.

Find Your Place In The Sun

The Grove Resort & Spa is attracting global interest, with buyers from Canada, the United Kingdom, China, Central and South America, to name a few. Savvy traveling families are no longer content with inconsistent and limiting hotel experiences. With more and more international travelers spending increasing amounts of time on their vacations, vacation home rentals are the ideal choice. When investors and owners research the facts and compare the value, construction, location, financial backing and on-site hotel management, it is easy to see why The Grove has become one of the fastest growing vacation home properties in Orlando and beyond.

Central Florida, and Orlando specifically, are experiencing exploding growth. With one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country, an affordable housing index and tax-friendly environment, Orlando continues to also be a leading real estate market in North America. Millions of dollars are being spent in the Orlando area on infrastructure in anticipation of record growth and to retain the title of  “Leading Vacation Destination in The World.” Consequently, the area is no longer only attracting tourists to the area. Major companies are finding the combination of low taxes, high quality workforce, top-rated schools and of course, the Florida sunshine, an attractive place to relocate to and invest in. Orlando has made major strides in attracting substantial developments in the healthcare, education, high tech, clean energy, manufacturing and aerospace industries.

“It appears the time is right to seek opportunity in Orlando.”
