Bonaventure Resort & Spa
This lovely, inland resort features an excellent array of amenities at reasonable prices.
Palm trees on either side of a portico welcome visitors to this 23-acre resort, which has been transformed with a $100-million renovation. Graced with the amenities of a first-class property, it appeals to all but those in search of a sunny beach --- it’s located inland, not far from the Sawgrass Mills outlet mall. It's an attractive spot for conferences, and the availability of wedding planners, catering and banquet services also makes it a convenient and lovely place for weddings. Pleasantly furnished guest rooms are done in a British colonial style and feature amenities such as flat-screen or LCD TVs, marble baths and high-speed wireless Internet access. Suites offer balconies with views of the pool and golf courses (the adjacent Bonaventure Country Club offers hotel guests special rates on its PGA Championship courses). The pool at the hotel dazzles with a waterfall, and refreshments are available at the attached Cabana Bar & Café. Other dining options include Ireland's Steakhouse and Banyan Restaurant. Adding to the resort atmosphere is aLaya spa, offering a Zen garden, 30 treatment rooms, a Pilate's studio and organic OSEA skincare products.
