Bringing People Back Together

If you’re like most people, you’ve probably been feeling an overwhelming urge to get away from life’s daily slog. Perhaps you’re tired of seeing family solely through a laptop screen or have had enough of cooking dinner nightly. You let your mind wander to a place where the kids are splashing playfully in a pool while you sip a cocktail nearby. And you can practically feel your golf club connect with the ball, cutting down the fairway. But enough with the daydreaming. It’s time to make this a reality with an escape to Reunion Resort & Golf Club, a destination that is close to home but puts you in a completely refreshed state of mind.

Reunion is a place of “timeless relaxation,” says Anthony Carll, general manager. “Our spacious accommodations lend themselves well to families, multi-generational travelers and golf enthusiasts looking to walk in the footsteps of golf’s greatest legends in our three signature championship golf courses. We want Reunion Resort to be the place where families, groups and loved ones come together and reconnect with those who are important to them.”

Spanning 2,300 sprawling acres, Reunion Resort is ideally located within minutes of the thrills found in Orlando’s world-famous theme parks and attractions. For groups of all sizes, whether single or multiple families, college friends and even corporate conferences, Reunion boasts hundreds of resort-style accommodations ranging from spacious suites and condos, one- to three-bedroom villas to private three- to 14-bedroom vacation homes. 

The extraordinary amenities on the property blend luxury, comfort, service and style. Among its most popular attractions are Reunion’s unrivaled signature championship golf courses, says Carll. Reunion Resort is widely recognized as a top golf destination, and was recently recognized as a 2021 Golf Digest Editors’ Choice Awards winner. 

“Unique to Reunion, golfers will find 54 holes designed by three of golf’s greatest legends—Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Tom Watson. You won’t find anything like this elsewhere,” he says. “Our undulating greens and smooth fairways are sure to serve up challenges for guests of all levels.” 

Although its golf courses draw people from far and wide, Reunion caters to every personality with myriad offerings, including a water park, 10 pools, dining, tennis and pickleball courts, playgrounds, and even amenities inside the vacation homes, such as game rooms, in-home movie theaters and bowling alleys.

With 10 community pools across the property, hot tubs and our five-acre water park, guests are never too far from a relaxing swim. An on-site water park features a gentle lazy river, umbrellas, shaded cabanas, lawn games and an interactive children’s water play area.

Those looking to stay active while on vacation can try their hand at pickleball, even if for the first time. “Our lessons are taught by our certified, in-house tennis and pickleball professional,” adds Carll. “Families looking for outdoor activities will enjoy footgolf, miniature golf and bocce ball, or riding around the resort on our rental bicycles and surrey bikes.”

The day’s activities are sure to work up an appetite. Whether looking for an upscale experience serving premium steaks and top-flight wines or casual fare for those on the go, guests are sure to find something at one of the six dining venues across the resort. 

Reunion not only ensures every guest’s vacation experience is second to none, but special events as well, whether arriving for a corporate meeting, a golf outing, a convention, a wedding or social event. “With more than 25,000 square feet of meeting space and conference facilities, the resort offers the flexibility to accommodate groups of various sizes and needs. And when it comes to hosting safe meetings and events, the health and comfort of our guests, members and employees continues to be of utmost importance,” Carll says.

“At Reunion Resort, we specialize in assisting groups set the stage for a uniquely unforgettable event, offering impeccable amenities and spectacular venues for both indoor and outdoor events from concept to completion.”

Throughout their stay, guests will witness the impeccable customer service provided by the staff at Reunion. Their dedication has contributed to the AAA Four Diamond-rated Reunion Resort recently being named one of the “Top 30 Resorts in Florida” by the Conde Nast Traveler’s 2020 Readers’ Choice Awards. 

“This past year has been unlike any other, to say the least, but every day I am encouraged by the lengths our team members will go to keep our guests smiling, and that is what I hope our guests remember when they think back on their Reunion Resort experience,” says Carll.

To truly grasp what your stay at Reunion will accomplish, look no further than its name. Designed to bring people together in one place where each individual will find something to fit their ideal vacation dream, Reunion is the escape we all need right now.
