**Reunion Resort**- Located a short 30 minute drive away from Orlando International airport and only a 10 minute drive to Disney – the AAA Four Diamond rated Reunion Resort is a welcome oasis of calm.
The Resort encompasses 2,300 acres of lush landscape and nature preserves, providing a peaceful respite in the midst of the magic and mayhem of Orlando’s glittering attractions. Leaving crowds and long lines far behind, the resort features 360 resort style accommodations ranging from luxury villas to private 3-12 bedroom vacation homes. Reunion Resort is designed for gatherings with their villas and suites ranging from 700sq ft to 2350 sq ft with all the comforts and amenities of home.
Recognized by Golfweek, Golf Digest and GOLF Magazine as a top golf destination resort, Reunion is the only location in the world featuring three signature championship golf courses designed by golf’s greatest legends: Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Tom Watson.

**Nicklaus Course** – This parkland-style layout is smooth and flowing, with long horizon lines and elevated tee boxes and greens. Yet The Nicklaus Course, a signature design by Jack Nicklaus, can be as deceptive as it is beautiful. Designed to tempt golfers into hitting risky shots with potentially big payoffs, the course challenges the golfer to step up to the ball with a carefully organised series of shots in mind.
**Palmer Course** – Innovatively routed on hilly, roller coaster-like terrain, Arnold Palmer’s 6,916 yard, par 72 signature course boasts dramatic elevation changes – up to 50 feet in some places, creating a unique variety of risk/reward shots. That varied menu of shot-making opportunities is further ensured by 6 tee locations on each hole, a variety of natural preserve areas, generously wide fairways and strategically placed bunkers across all 18 holes.
**Watson Course** – Highlighted by fast, firm and wide rolling fairways, a variety of deliberately placed bunkers and large greens, the 7,154 yard, par 72 Watson Course, is as much about strategy as it is about length. Demanding a well thought out approach from every player regardless of skill, this course puts a premium on a solid short game with spacious green complexes where club selection can vary from putter to lob wedge to three-wood
As for golf tuition, Reunion Resort is the only resort in America with an ANNIKA Academy and Frankly Golf Putting Academy on site.
Reunion also features seven casual and fine dining options including an award-winning rooftop steak house, elegant indoor and outdoor meeting spaces, six hydro-grid clay tennis courts, a full service boutique spa, 10 community pools and a 5-acre water park including slides, a water playground and a 1,000-ft. lazy river, which Travel Channel named among their top 10 “Over the Top” waterparks in the world. Condé Nast Traveller and Travel + Leisure have also named Reunion as a Top Destination for families in the U.S.

As well as the waterpark to keep children (and adults alike) happy for hours, there is a children’s club, Kids Crew, for guests from ages 4-10 years with organised games and activities.
The award-winning Tennis Centre features six Hyrdro-grid courts and has teaching professionals available to assist and a full service tennis shop.
Choose from one of the 6 restaurants onsite catering for poolside snacks, to Sushi to Italian or to the award winning, Eleven, which is located on the rooftop of the Reunion Grande and has a 360 degree view of the resort.
If you are looking to explore the rest of the sunshine state on your holiday, there are many local attractions on offer with the less known but definitely worth a trip are The Orlando Tree Trek Adventure Park which is an aerial adventure course suspended in a pine forest at 10-60 feet off the ground. The Harry P Leu Gardens are beautiful botanical gardens set in a 50 acre oasis – perfect for nature lovers. The Orlando Airboat Tours will help you discover the ‘wild’ side of Florida, as you search for alligators and other wildlife who call the swamp their home. The Kennedy Space centre is a must for both young and old – NASA’S launch headquarters, where you can train in flight simulators, meet astronauts and could even witness a launch (if the timing is right).
From spending the day at the local attractions or a day on the golf course, or splashing around the water park, playing tennis on six lit courts or even rent a bike – you can relax and enjoy your evening by catching the daily Disney fireworks display from the pool deck and the comfort of the resort.
