Combining the best parts of vacation rentals and upscale hotel resorts, Villatel Orlando Resort developed in partnership with Villatel’s sister company, Baseline Property Group, made its debut in the heart of Orlando’s tourism district, International Drive, in November 2023.
Offering top-tier private villa rentals with hotel-style standards and amenities, the extraordinary $500 million resort is situated on 77-acres, just minutes from the area’s most iconic attractions—most notably, the Universal Orlando theme park (approximately eight minutes down the road, the Walt Disney World theme parks, and the highly anticipated, multi-billion-dollar Epic Universe theme park slated to open in 2025.
“We’re thrilled to welcome guests to Villatel Orlando Resort as we unveil the first phase of a new kind of hospitality that will truly change the way people travel,” Stephen Lobell, CEO of Villatel, said. “Our concept reimagines the short-term vacation rental space by offering a custom product that’s consistently beautiful and clean, and a service level that’s always reliable. For any guest debating the merits of booking a hotel room or a vacation rental in Orlando, our response is: why not get the best of both? Your own fully equipped kitchen, expansive living spaces, game loft, pool, en-suite bedrooms, and a variety of resort amenities, all cleaned and serviced to upscale hotel standards.
Exciting Immersive Experiences
Immersive experiences are one of Villatel’s core trademarks and a big part of what distinguishes its product from the market. The team of in-house creative powerhouses at Immersive Scenic Studios, another sister company of Villatel’s, is dedicated to dreaming up, modeling, fabricating, and building the most extravagant and detailed themed kids’ bedrooms and entertainment spaces—ranging from home theaters to arcades to game lofts.
With so much to do inside, leaving isn’t a requisite. But if you’re ready to hit the parks or other local attractions, Villatel’s concierge-style service provides support and recommendations.
In 2024, Villatel Orlando Resort, will further transform the guest experience with the debut of its custom-built resort amenity center, which will feature a state-of-the-art community clubhouse, grand pool, adventure waterpark featuring multi-story slides and lazy river, fully-equipped fitness center, full-service restaurant and grill, wet and dry children’s playgrounds, plus bocce, basketball and pickleball courts.
“As excited as we are to bring the first set of villas to market for guests to enjoy, the launch of our remaining 400-plus units and sprawling water park and amenity center will really take this destination to another level,” Willatel added.
Upon completion in 2025, the entire resort will boast 526 units comprising 256 apartment-style suites and 270 grand single-family homes of varied sizes.
Villatel Orlando Resort combines the comforts of home (and then some) with the luxuries of a world-class resort. It caters to travelers of all kinds, from families looking for an extraordinary adventure to couples seeking a fun and romantic getaway to friends looking to have a great time.
With its premium accommodations, unrivaled amenities, and unbeatable location, Villatel Orlando Resort is making its mark on the hospitality industry.
