Caribe Royale Orlando, central Florida’s largest all-suite convention hotel, is about to get even bigger.
The company recently announced it is in the midst of a $125 million phased renovation that will include a complete overhaul of all of its one-bedroom suites, the addition of a grand ballroom, and a new lobby featuring extensive lighting upgrades and a new arrival experience. Construction has commenced on the ballroom and completion is expected in spring 2021.
Phased renovations to Caribe Royale’s 1,215 one-bedroom suites will focus on only one of the resort’s three towers at a time to eliminate disruptions for guests.
Designed in a classic Floridian style inspired by the Captiva Island-based works of American painter and graphic artist Robert Rauschenberg, the complete suite renovations will involve all hard and soft elements, from floors, bathrooms, window treatments, and light fixtures, plus enhancements to amenities including 55 inch flat screen TVs, mini-fridges, coffee makers, and more electrical outlets.
The all-new 50,000-square-foot grand ballroom will bring Caribe Royale’s total meeting space to 220,000 square feet and expand the resort’s offerings for meeting planners and event specialists.
In addition to the grand ballroom, the variety of indoor and outdoor meeting spaces includes three other flexible ballrooms, 54 spacious breakout rooms, three executive boardrooms, 120 fully renovated lakeside villas suited for small breakout sessions, and poolside venues. All meeting rooms offer an in-house audiovisual provider and both wired and wireless internet connections.
“Our reason for being is to make sure every guest gets the ‘Royale’ treatment,” explained managing director Amaury Piedra. “That means treating business and leisure guests to exceptional levels of comfort and hospitality though a spirit of extraordinary generosity that brings a smile to their face during their stay and long after they leave.”
