ORLANDO, FL—A Margaritaville Resort community led by Margaritaville Holdings LLC, and Encore Capital Management is under development here. The Margaritaville-branded resort will be comprised of a hotel, vacation ownership and vacation homes.
Inspired by the lifestyle celebrated in Jimmy Buffett’s songs, amenities will include many experiential opportunities such as FinCity arcade, St. Somewhere Spa, a planetarium, Son of a Sailor fishing school, paddleboarding and kayaking.
The 300-acre community will be located on U.S. Highway 192 near State Road 429 in western Osceola County. The project will include an expansive aquatic amenity and lake with beach area. The community will also feature 170,000 sq. ft. of retail and a regional water park.
Ancillary to the Margaritaville Hotel, Encore is developing its own proprietary brands for food and beverage outlets, which will be owned and operated independently by Encore or its subsidiaries.
“There is no other lifestyle brand that knows how to vacation like Margaritaville and we look forward to building this destination experience in Orlando. This vacation resort, offering such a variety of lodging options, will make Margaritaville available to everyone looking for a part of paradise in Orlando,” said John Cohlan, CEO, Margaritaville Holdings LLC.
