Rooms & Rates
Golfers and families visiting Orlando but not interested in staying at a theme-park property can opt for the serene Villas of Grand Cypress. Less than 10 minutes by car from Walt Disney World Resort, the hotel’s 1,500 acres of palm trees, tropical flowers and rolling golf courses are a world away from the crowded mega resorts just a few miles away.
With only 146 Mediterranean-style suites and villas spread throughout the property, the resort feels secluded and fills its expansive grounds with a plethora of amenities and activities for guests. In addition to a 45-hole golf course designed by Jack Nicklaus, PGA instructors offer lessons for all skill levels at the Academy of Golf, considered one of the country’s best.
Beyond the greens, guests can fish, boat, bike, swim and play tennis on the property. The resort also offers free shuttle service to Disney, SeaWorld and Universal theme parks. Guests have access to a kids camp at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress, next door, which includes crafts, movies, cooking classes and hiking the resort’s trails. The resort has two restaurants, including one of only two Forbes Four-Star restaurants in Orlando, giving guests the choice of steak and seafood or a family-friendly clubhouse.
All accommodations were renovated in 2013 with deep leather sofas, plush carpeting, wooden blinds and bathrooms with stacked stone walls, freestanding tubs and rainfall showerheads. Each room has a flat-screen television in the vanity mirror and living area, Keurig coffeemaker, iPod dock and free Wi-Fi. Suites feature full kitchens complete with full-size ovens, refrigerators and dishwashers. Some villas have fireplaces and French doors opening to wide patios. The home-away-from-home atmosphere is elevated by twice-a-day maid service.
