Genuinely affordable luxury for every vacation style — that’s Reunion Resort in a nutshell. Where else can you stay in a beautifully-appointed 1700-plus square-foot condominium villa, with full living and dining rooms, 2 full bedrooms with private bathrooms with garden tubs and separate showers, full kitchens with premium appliances, granite countertops throughout and a spacious private balcony — for what you would spend on your standard suite in a major hotel chain? For the price of your average cramped hotel suite, you and your crew can spread out and enjoy — it’s your home away from home (except you don’t have the make the beds)!
Of all of Salamander’s Florida resorts, Reunion Resort, located right in the middle of the state, is probably the most diverse in their Sunshine State collection. From championship golf to top-rated spa; family fun and entertainment to the ultimate in luxurious romantic indulgence; even the on-the-go activity buff — Reunion is the place for it all.
For golf fanatics, Reunion is the only resort in the world you can find 3 separate championship golf layouts designed by the golfing greats Tom Watson, Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer, all with three distantly different golf course layouts.
For activity buffs, there are tennis, running, hiking and biking trails, a fully outfitted fitness center with personal trainer available, yoga classes and fitness bootcamp.
For couples, it’s a haven of luxury, pampering and romance, with the best in fine dining and a spectacular 360 degree view of Central Florida from the chic, South Florida-style 11th floor pool, lounge and 5-star restaurant.
For families, Reunion might just be kid heaven with its on-site 5-acre waterpark, including a lazy river, 150-foot waterslide, interactive water playground, water games, and a beach volleyball court, as well as the Seven Eagles activity hub, featuring a sloped-entry pool, outdoor billiards, ping pong, and game room. Off-site, there’s Disney (9 miles away), and Universal (21 miles away), and Sea World (16 miles away), and the Orlando Eye, and Aquatica, and… everything else that Orlando and Central Florida has to offer. They’ve even developed a quasi-golf game which uses soccer balls and feet instead of clubs and golf balls…perfect for kids of all ages to enjoy.
Even the accommodations reflect Reunion’s diversity. Along with the Grand Reunion villas mentioned before, you can rent an entire luxury multibedroom home in one of the 13 “neighborhoods” throughout the resort (with so many to choose from, there’s sure to be one to meet your particular style and needs), or one of the 1, 2 & 3 bedroom villas in Seven Eagles & Heritage.
Add to that a top-rated spa and unequaled dining at one of 7 locations around the property, and there’s really no reason to ever leave (unless the kids just insist on dragging you to a theme park). Affordable luxury, unparalleled service, spacious accommodations, restaurants with mouthwatering fare to satisfy any palate, and a personalized Salamander Experience to make your vacation memorable, all just an easy 2-hour drive from the Oldest City. Getting away in style has never been easier or more affordable.

INSIDER TIP: For a fun family/group bonding experience, cycle through Reunion Resort’s 2,300 acres of serenity on one of the waterpark’s Suri Bike rentals. “We are passionate about creating unforgettable experiences for our guests throughout our 2,300 acre property in the heart of Orlando. We strive to thrill our guests with the unexpected and that’s exactly what our hippest restaurant, Eleven, delivers from its roof-top pool deck with nightly views of the fireworks from nearby Walt Disney World.” — Carlton Grant, General Manager
