Orlando, FL, August 11, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Orlando’s most exciting vacation resort destination, The Grove Resort & Spa, is gearing up for a January 2017 grand opening of 184 unit first phase. The entire project, consisting of 878 residences will be sold fully furnished as two- and three-bedroom vacation home condominiums. The owner then has the option to place the unit in the resort’s hotel rental program. Onsite property management company Benchmark Hospitality International will facilitate the hotel rental program and provide service to the resort guests.
It is anticipated that upwards of 90% of vacation home sales at The Grove will be contracted through local Realtors. The Grove Resort & Spa is currently offering 12% commission to Realtors and brokers. Prices for a two-bedroom residence start from $255,000, while three-bedroom residences start from $294,900.
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 Central Florida annually. Sitting on 106 acres overlooking the natural beauty of Lake Austin and adjacent to a nature preserve, the pristine setting should remain unchanged for years to come. Here, owners and guests have the unique opportunity to experience Florida at its best – naturally.
The Grove Resort & Spa will feature a world-class, family-friendly water park and amenity package with the first surf simulator at any Orlando vacation home community or hotel, a lazy river winding more than 725 feet (221 meters), three swimming pools collectively known as The Springs, a large zero-entry resort pool and dining options that include three restaurants and multiple bars. While owners and guests will undoubtedly want to spend time at Walt Disney World®, Universal Studios Florida®, SeaWorld®, LegoLand® and the rest of Orlando’s world-famous theme parks, The Grove also provides the ideal respite from the crowds.
“Whether you’re six or 60, you’ll find something amazing to do at The Grove,” says The Grove’s Director of Operations David D’Ambrosio. “Kids of all ages will enjoy splashing in the beach entry pool or riding the water slides, while the adults relax poolside or in a private cabana. Guests who want to truly unwind can choose from a variety of treatments at Escape Spa.”
The Grove Resort & Spa is owned by a joint venture between certain affiliates of Westport Capital Partners LLC and BTI Partners, with BTI Partners as the development partner. The Woodlands, Texas-based Benchmark Hospitality International, with nearly 40 years of hotel development and management experience, and over 5,000 rooms and 40 resorts, hotels and conference centers globally, will manage the property as member of its signature Benchmark Resorts & Hotels portfolio. Hotels in the Benchmark portfolio boast more than ten AAA Four-Diamond Awards, several Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards/Top 500 Hotels, as well as international recognition from Conde’ Nast Traveler and Forbes.
