ORLANDO, Fla. — The Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Fla., is set to become home to the largest Four Seasons luxury resort in the world, according to a recent announcement from the team at Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts.
The existing Osprey Ridge 18-hole golf course will be renovated and subsequently managed by Four Seasons, with the resort construction beginning in December.
The property will include 444 rooms, 40 Four Seasons Residence Club units, 90 Four Seasons Private Residences, a rooftop restaurant, a spa with 18 treatment rooms, three pools, a lazy river and more.
The US$360-million development deal is a joint venture between the Toronto-based Four Seasons, the New York-based Silverstein Properties and Dune Real Estate Partners. Four Seasons acquired the land from Disney in August 2008 and will retain a 30-per-cent ownership interest in the project in addition to operating the resort.
The new property is expected to open in 2014.
