Lake Nona Will Transform Orlando’s Hospitality Landscape

The hospitality landscape of Orlando is set for an unprecedented rebirth with the launch of the forthcoming Lake Nona community. Dubbed “a smart city with soul,” the 17-square-mile destination will be anchored by the dynamic Lake Nona Wave Hotel. Global practice Arquitectonica will craft the 216-room lifestyle hotel to reflect the vibrancy of its setting. “Our goal is a building whose architecture represents the aspirations of this new town: fresh, vibrant, memorable, and of its place,” says Arquitectonica principal Bernardo Fort-Brescia.

Blue Lantern Studios is envisioning the property’s playful interior design, which will be enlivened by a curated selection of multimedia artworks and dramatic wallcoverings that serve as a backdrop for custom furniture and bespoke lighting. Technology, however, will be the most distinguishing characteristic of the property, which will be equipped with voice-automated in-room controls, in-room tablets, and keyless entry. A bespoke mobile app will allow guests to monitor and curate their entire stay as well.

F&B options will include a signature restaurant overlooking the Lake Nona Town Center Plaza, while a second eatery and lounge will frame views of the hotel pool and its pastel-hued cabanas. In addition to a fitness center and 12,000 square feet of event space, the hotel will be home to the Lake Nona Performance Club. The 130,000-square-foot wellness center will comprise a holistic spa, rock-climbing gym, and indoor golf training facilities. An open-air garden lined with nearly 300 palm trees will also serve as a key outdoor space.
