Florida is a vacation hotspot for a lot of good reasons. Its nickname is the Sunshine State so you are guaranteed beautiful warm, sunny weather almost year round. Florida also boasts some of the best beaches on nearly all of it’s borders, over a dozen major theme parks, and an International airport to make traveling convenient.
Central Florida is also home to one of the most incredible resorts you will ever visit: Reunion Resort.
Tucked away in Kissimmee, Florida only 20 minutes away from Orlando International Airport and only six miles from Walt Disney World you’ll find Reunion Resort—an exclusive 2,200-acre vacation wonderland for families or couples.
The Perfect Relaxing Vacation
Recently we traveled to Orlando for a family vacation and spent some time at this beautiful resort. Reunion Resort was the perfect balance of being relaxing while still offering plenty of fun for the kids.
6 Reasons To Stay at Reunion Resort in Kissimmee, Florida
1. Luxury Villas and Vacation Home Rentals
When you book your stay at Reunion Resort, you can choose from luxury resort villas or high-end vacation home rentals.
The Reunion Resort Luxury Villas are upscale rooms that include one to three bedrooms, a large dining area and living room with plenty of room for friends and family to gather, and multiple bathrooms. The best part of booking a villa—daily housekeeping is included! There will be no tidying up on this trip!
If you prefer a more home-like ambiance, try the Reunion Resort vacation home rentals. This is what we did and it was fabulous!
The kids LOVED exploring all the house had to offer, and photo bombing my photos. 🙂
Our vacation home felt like paradise. The benefit of renting a vacation home is that you get access to Reunion Resort’s perks and amenities with a little more privacy. Unlimited water park entry, golf access, complimentary shuttle, and in-room dining are all available with your vacation home.
We tried in-room dining and I highly recommend it.
With in-room dining at your vacation home rental, you get a vacation from cooking as well; Reunion Resort brings your meals to you! I can’t even tell you how nice that was!
2. Kid-Friendly Fun
Let’s face it, all kids really want to do on vacation is swim in the pool and Reunion Resort has multiple beautiful swimming pools and even their own 5-acre water park equipped with twisting water slides and a lazy river. The kids were in heaven.
The house we stayed in even had its own private pool.
There is plenty to do outside the pool as well. There is volleyball, bike riding, tennis, giant chess, ping-pong, some great playgrounds and plenty of resort events to keep them entertained for days.
3. Delectable Dining
For me, the pinnacle of any vacation is that I can enjoy delicious food without having to cook it! When it comes to dining, Reunion Resort has six incredible restaurants ranging from fine dining at Eleven to a casual poolside grill and even the Grande Lobby Sushi Bar to choose from. There is no reason to ever leave the resort once you’re there. Now that’s my idea of the perfect relaxing family vacation.
We had a delicious meal at Eleven where all our five kids tried calamari for the first time…and liked it! Of course they thought it was a different type of onion ring and we didn’t tell them until we got home that they actually ate squid!
One of the highlights of our stay in Florida was seeing all the beautiful sunsets which you have an amazing view of at Eleven. You can also see the Disney World fireworks from the balcony, it is pretty magical.
If you don’t feel like getting dressed up to go out, you can get in-room dining which I highly recommend. The Reunion Resort caters beautiful, delicious meals and brings them right to your home! It is stress-free living to the max.
4. World-Class Golf
If you like golf, then you’ll love the world-class golf courses at Reunion Resort designed by three of golf’s greatest icons Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson, and Arnold Palmer. That’s an unforgettable opportunity!
5. Special Events
There are always plenty of things going on at Reunion Resort. If total relaxation is what you want, you can definitely stay by the pool or enjoy your beautiful room. But if you’d like to get out there and do a few things without leaving the resort, check out the Reunion Resort Event calendar which tells you all the fun things going on around you.
6. Relaxing Spa Treatments
For adults, Reunion Resort offers the one thing you want most of all: rest and relaxation. Visit the spa and salon for ultimate pampering.
I got the hot stone massage which was exactly what I needed. The soothing music and sensation of warm stones on all of my stress points had me in the most relaxed state—nearly asleep but still awake enough to thoroughly enjoy it.
It was the perfect way to end my stay at Reunion Resort.
You know those vacations that feel like you need a vacation from your vacation when you get home? Reunion Resort was absolutely nothing like that. We arrived home fully relaxed and happily reminiscing about all the fun memories we made there.
If you’re looking for a fun family vacation in a beautiful place that is completely stress-free and relaxing, you’ll love Reunion Resort in Kissimmee, Florida. Just don’t tell your kids about the squid until after you get home!
