Orlando is a favorite family destination because of its vast array of theme parks, amenities and eateries that appeal to every member of the family. But theme parks and themed-eateries are only part of Orlando's allure. The Reunion Resort, part of the Salamander group of upscale resort properties, is a perfect place to get away from the hubbub, high entry fees and crowds of theme parks and treat the whole family (grandparents included) to some great golf, a spa experience, good food and/or onsite amenities including a water park. Best of all, the whole family can enjoy eliteclass luxury and service at midlevel prices.

The Reunion is a 2,200-acre luxury golf and vacation resort on the outskirts of Orlando, convenient to all of Orlando’s attractions. The resort offers a variety of accommodations, ranging from one, two, and three-bedroom Villas plus multibedroom Vacation Rental Homes which include large living and dining areas, full kitchens, patios and balconies.

Vacation Rental Homes also include a range of guest features like private swimming pools, game rooms and even putting greens. The villas in the main tower also include inbuilding access or a very short stroll to several of the Reunion’s restaurants. The resort is built around its prime attraction—54 holes of golf. There are Arnold Palmer, Tom Watson and Jack Nicklaus signature courses and a golf academy within the resort. Unlimited golf packages are available.

There is also an on-site spa salon with five treatment rooms and a full menu of spa services at the resort. The Reunion also has a water park on-site, bicycle rentals and fitness classes to appeal to family members of all ages. Dining options include the upscale Eleven restaurant on the 11th floor of the main tower, the Forte Italian restaurant, a sushi bar and three more casual eateries, including one adjacent to the water park.
