The Villas of Grand Cypress Resort in Orlando, Florida, is ready to reveal a whole new look. Located within minutes of the city's top entertainment attractions, the resort has spent the past four months transforming its 146 villas, the first phase of a multi-faceted resort-wide renovation. Now, the 1,500-acre luxury resort is inviting guests to "be the first" to experience the more than $100,000 per villa investment with a special offer.
The "Be the First" package includes:
• Accommodations in a newly renovated Club Suite
• $50 resort credit
Rates for the "Be the First" package start at $295 in March and $245 in April. Package is based upon availability through April 30, 2013 and does not include resort fee or tax.
Overseen by Florida-based interior designer Lori Rapport, the renovation showcases spacious new guestrooms that offer modern interiors featuring streamlined decor, natural materials and neutral palettes that create a sense of serenity and calm that mirrors the natural beauty of the resort. The reimagined design welcomes guests to a refined and welcoming environment, creating a relaxed and comforting sanctuary for couples,family vacationers, business travelers and golf aficionados alike.
"We're absolutely delighted with the results of the resort renovation, which keeps the Villas of Grand Cypress as one of the top luxury destinations in Orlando," said Mark Cox, General Manager, who added that the work has "created a unique destination for travelers to experience the excitement of central Florida then retreat to the calming surroundings of our resort."
Living areas throughout the new Club Suites and Villas are spacious, inviting and residential in style. Fine furniture in Italian and Mid-Century Modern styles includes American Leather sofa sleepers and club chairs. Pulling inspiration from the area's surroundings, custom-designed woven carpets from Axminister feature the magnified lines of topographic maps that evoke the natural landscape. Artwork includes eye-catching original bronze sculptures, custom chandeliers and expressionist designs. Select villas offer sleek dining room tables generously sized for ten and gas-lit fireplaces. Double plankbase moldings, doors and window casings are framed by natural American Walnut. Stylish beds with upholstered headboards illuminated by ambient bedside lighting are inviting with elegant bedding, plush pillows and 300-thread-count linens. Outdoors, guests can enjoy expansive private patios or decks overlooking the fairways or waterways of the North Course.
Five-piece bathrooms sparkle with rich Zebrano wood, natural Shabui stacked stone, crisp white porcelain, polished chrome and glistening clear glass. Freestanding glass encloses a walk-in shower equipped with a European shower tower featuring body jets, a hand held shower head, and a rain shower head. The bathrooms also showcase deep-walled bath tubs set upon stone platforms and custom quartz counters with double sinks topped with polished chrome Kohler faucets and illuminated mirrors integrated with a 19" television.
Rapport's contemporary, yet classic, vision is the perfect recipe for the Villa kitchens where top-of-the-line, stainless steel GE appliances share space with quartz countertops, stainless steel sinks and polished chrome fixtures. Walnut wood cabinets feature stainless steel hardware, while the floors are encrusted with porcelain tiles.
