New Tavistock Hotel Collection will bring one of the most ambitious Crystal Lagoons projects in the U.S. to Orlando
Billionaire Joe Lewis’ Tavistock Group announced the launch of the new Tavistock Hotel Collection that will oversee two new hotels planned to break ground in Lake Nona this year. The new entity will oversee a “growing” hospitality portfolio, including the Tavistock Lake Nona Resort and the Tavistock Town Center Hotel in the southeast Orlando community.
In the first one Crystal Lagoons US, Corp. will develop an 11-acre recreational, manmade lagoon with crystalline waters that will be a centerpiece of the new, luxury resort development within the 7,000-acre development of Lake Nona in Orlando, Florida. This will be the largest planned Crystal Lagoons project in the U.S. to date.
Apart from featuring one of the nation’s largest man-made lagoons, bringing the “beach” to Central Florida in 2020, the project will feature 250 guest rooms and 80 condos, and it will be built between the Lake Nona Golf & Country Club and the USTA National Campus. It’s expected to appeal to athletes, leisure travelers, incentive groups and families. Amenities will include 20,000 square feet of meeting space, an expansive rooftop lounge, a 120,000-square-foot beach volleyball venue, and a major fitness and spa campus. Miami-based Arquitectonica is the project architect.
Crystal Lagoons is an international innovation company, founded by scientist Fernando Fischmann, which has developed a patent-protected technology that allows the construction and maintenance of unlimited-size crystal clear lagoons at very low costs.
