Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress • Orlando

Perhaps the best way to describe Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress is positively indescribable. This sprawling 1,500-acre resort puts families and business people alike a mere mile from Walt Disney World® and near Universal Orlando® and SeaWorld® Orlando. But oh so far away from the hustle and bustle!

With 779 newly updated guest rooms and suites, the award-winning hotel resort is known for attentive service and upscale amenities. You can start your “escape” at Lake Windsong, the hotel’s spectacular 800,000 gallon, half-acre, free-flowing lagoon pool. It borders a 1,000 feet long private sand beach replete with 12 waterfalls; swimming pools; whirlpools; water slide tower and water jet splash zone; plus kid’s rock climbing stations and rope bridge. Other water activities are paddleboats, kayaks, hydro bikes, canoes, aqua cycles and sailboats.

For landlubbers, there are hiking and nature trails, tennis courts, a 45-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course and world-class spa. Be sure to indulge in the resort’s large choice of restaurants and lounges including Hemingway’s Restaurant, Market and LakeHouse Restaurant. There are also complimentary shuttles to all major theme parks.
