Grande Lakes Resort

Orlando, Florida

A Destination Apart

The Grande Lakes luxury resort development is located at the intersection of John Young Parkway and Central Florida Expressway. The site is near the Orange County Convention Center and Sea World and is situated centrally between Walt Disney World, Universal Studios and the Orlando International Airport. The resort is themed around historical Floridian architecture which parallels Mediterranean regions. The 1,000 key JW Marriott takes its theming from Moorish Spain and the 584 key Ritz-Carlton takes its design from Mizner and classical Tuscany, Italy.  

The complex is a popular destination resort, featuring an 18-hole signature golf course designed by Greg Norman. A highlight for visitors is the many pools, which utilize water in unique ways to create unparalleled experiences appealing to families as well as more intimate, private gardens and outdoor function spaces.
