The Grove Resort & Spa Orlando, which debuted its inaugural phase in 2017, has revealed several new additions that have opened or are set to open this spring. The resort's Surfari Water Park, an attraction with two water slides, a winding lazy river, a dual-rider surf simulator and a kids' activity pool, is now open to guests, while Surfari's on-site restaurant, the Longboard Bar & Grill, will open next month.
The Grove's continued expansion also includes the addition this spring of more than 280 suites to the existing inventory of nearly 300 two and three-bedroom guest accommodations. The suites include living and dining areas, full kitchens, screened balconies, and full-size washers and dryers. Also on-site are three pools, a spa, a fitness center and 6,000 square feet of meeting space. Just three miles from Walt Disney World's Western Way entrance, the resort offers kayaking, fishing and paddle boats at Lake Austin Pier, and five dining and drink venues. The 106-acre property will continue to unveil new accommodations and amenities over the coming months; when completed, it will offer a total of 878 guest suites.
