CLC Regal Oaks, a Kissimmee-located luxury holiday resort designed and operated by CLC World Resorts & Hotels, a leading European developer, has opened for business to public acclaim as well as making an impact on the local economy.
Florida Governor Rick Scott has written to praise CLC World for building a resort which has carved out its place in the local community and congratulated it for being included in the Orlando Business Journal’s list of top construction projects and playing its part as a job creator.
Already 50 new jobs have been created in the Osceola County area and once the resort is fully open the company expects to hire another 50 to 75 employees.
The resort’s centrepiece is its $9 million clubhouse, housing reception services and facilities. More than 75% of units are now operational with the completion of 347 two-, three- and four-bedroom townhouses, and 102 more are under construction. The town houses are sold freehold and made available to the holiday rentals market via CLC World’s Leisure Sales division.
The resort offers an oasis of retreat from the nearby famous theme parks and other attractions and is just 4 miles from Walt Disney World®. It opened early in March and holidays have been in full swing with buoyant bookings for all market segments, including family vacations, sports groups and corporate parties. The resort is a virtual sell out for summer, with year-round bookings expected to be further stimulated by its showcasing at IPW.
The company took up the challenge of translating its British and continental successes into success in the U.S. and has keenly embraced the American Dream – CLC Regal Oaks is its second Orlando resort.
Resorts Management Director Laura Sherman said: “CLC World knows what it takes to deliver great holiday accommodation, with contemporary, sophisticated continental décor, intimacy, excellent resort facilities and a 24-hour full resort service. Orlando’s fabulous amusements and theme parks are only part of the holiday and what we offer is a home-from-home experience to unwind in beautifully appointed townhouses. Since opening we have enjoyed a great response from guests – we have been inundated with requests for future bookings and there has been a lot of interest from potential buyers.”
“We are just a few minutes’ drive from restaurants, shops, bars and golf courses, close to the quaint town of Celebration and within walking distance of the lively entertainment at Old Town, and we are an important addition to the Kissimmee/Orlando markets,” Sherman added.
The clubhouse leads through to a free-form swimming pool surrounded by a sun-deck which extends over a natural lake and the extensive facilities include a mini aqua park, tennis court, fitness center, mini market, business center and more. A resort restaurant is opening soon.
A CLC Regal Oaks team will promote the attractions of the resort at the IPW 2015 from May 30th to June 3rd. IPW, the U.S. travel industry’s premier international marketplace, is coming back to Orlando, FL for the first time since 2010. The Orange County Convention Center will host more than 1,100 exhibitor booths and more than 5,000 visitors, comprising international and domestic travel buyers and international journalists, will pass through its doors.
“The IPW offers a spectacular stage for us to set out just what makes CLC Regal Oaks such a special place and we are very excited by the opportunity. We have important plans in the pipeline that we are hoping to unveil soon so watch this space!” said Sherman.
