June 4, 2016 – CLERMONT, FLORIDA – Representatives of the Summer Bay Orlando Master Association gathered along with Resort Management on Friday, June 3 for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the official opening of the much anticipated 10,500 sq. ft. Recreation Pavilion at Summer Bay Orlando. This gathering marked the culmination of a yearlong development project which has culminated in a new resort amenity positioned to provide Exploria Resorts owners and guests with a large array of opportunities for fun, activities and excitement during their Orlando, Florida vacations.
Exploria Resorts partnered with Wellsboro Construction on a mission to bring a centralized location to the resort with expanded spaces to provide additional opportunities for guests to gather and enjoy a multitude of family vacation experiences. Under the management of Senior Recreation Manager, Ashley Sorto, the new Recreation Pavilion features an Arcade and Prize Redemption Center, Fitness Center, Movie Theatre, Billiards and Game Room, Resort Lounge, and expansive spaces for daily scheduled activities.
Resort guests may also checkout recreational equipment through the resort’s Recreation Team who is based in the Recreation Pavilion. Resort sports court experiences located around the 400+ acre campus include basketball, bocce ball, ping-pong, horseshoes, tennis and volleyball. The 50-seat indoor movie theatre will feature daily, recently released blockbuster hits with popcorn, sodas and candy available for purchase. The theatre space, along with other dedicated spaces, is available for private group movie screenings and gatherings as families celebrate milestone occasions while on vacation together. The new Resort Lounge features a library, coffee station, luxury seating and computers and printers for exclusive use of registered guests. The Arcade features electronic game stations at which guests can earn points to redeem for prizes at the adjoining prize redemption center. A Game Room features gaming consoles with video game checkouts along with large flat screen televisions, a billiards table, and board games. An expansive Fitness Center loaded with state of the art equipment and a multi-purpose Activities Room are the two largest spaces of the Recreation Pavilion, providing round-the-clock opportunities for fitness, fun, and making family vacation memories.
“The Recreation Pavilion will bring families together under one roof and offer multiple gathering spaces to facilitate ‘staying connected” shared Paul Caldwell, CEO/President of Exploria Resorts. “This $2 million dollar facility features an upscale design aesthetic and offers guests an alternative gathering space to the Resort Clubhouse where many of the amenities of the Recreation Pavilion were previously stationed.”
