Margaritaville Resort to open in Orlando

by Jane Kitchen | 03 Sep 2015

Margaritaville Holdings, along with Encore Capital management, will develop a Margaritaville Resort in Orlando. Inspired by the lifestyle celebrated in Jimmy Buffett’s songs, the resort will include a hotel, vacation ownership, vacation homes, and a 5,000sq ft (465sq m) St. Somewhere Spa.

“Margaritaville is about escapism, relaxation and vacation, and we are excited to partner with Encore to develop such an exceptional experience,” said John Cohlan, CEO of Margaritaville Holdings.

While still in the planning stages, the spa is described as a wellness facility with treatment rooms, a fitness centre and steam room, and will have a tropical theme, in keeping with Buffet style. It will also include yoga, paddleboard yoga and exercise classes.

The 300-acre Margaritaville community will also include an expansive aquatic amenity and lake with beach area, a “FinCity” arcade, planetarium, “Son of a Sailor” fishing school, paddleboarding and kayaking, as well as 170,000sq ft (15,794sq m) of retail space and a regional water park.

Margaritaville hotels and resorts can be found in Pensacola Beach, Florida, US; Bossier City, Louisiana, US; and Pigeon Forge, Tennesse, US; with a 350-room oceanfront resort opening this month in Hollywood Beach, Florida, US.
