ORLANDO, FLA. – Visions Resort & Spa, the $170 million landmark resort community underway in Orlando, Fla., has joined as a member of Preferred Hotels & Resorts – the independent hotel brand that represents more than 600 distinctive hotels, resorts, residences, and unique hotel groups across 80 countries – as the newest experience available within the Preferred Hotels & Resorts Lifestyle Collection. Representing premier global properties that offer engaging stays and memorable moments, the Preferred Hotels & Resorts Lifestyle Collection is diverse, authentic, intelligent, and approachable, presenting responsive service and local dining that articulate culture and style.

Developed by Urban Network Capital Group (UNCG), in partnership with Vertical Developments and Concepto Taller de Arquitectura, Visions Resort & Spa will introduce luxury single-family homes, townhomes and an 180-unit condo-hotel designed for short-term stays, as well as 70,000 square feet of complementary retail space. Strategically situated in one of the most in-demand vacation rental markets in the U.S., the wellness-forward, master-planned property will provide visitors with an upscale lifestyle experience that blends seamlessly with functional family fun. Each unit will be delivered furnished with modern, tailor-made decor and high-quality finishes, including granite countertops, Italian cabinetry and premier appliances.

Upon completion, the project will feature a myriad of amenities to create an unrivaled resort destination. A 10,000-square-foot clubhouse will be a playground for all ages, bringing indoor-outdoor recreation for friends and family, entertainment, and dining. Here, guests will enjoy golf and racecar simulators, an arcade, game room, movie screening room, and playroom for kids. Outdoor amenities will run the gamut, from an expansive deck with a resort-style pool that is flanked by cabanas an a wet bar for poolside refreshments, to nearly every type of court one could desire (i.e. pickleball, tennis, badminton, volleyball and more). Wellness-minded individuals will find their Zen in the meditation garden or Pilates and yoga center, or release endorphins sweating in the state-of-the-art gym facility or outdoor cross-training.

“Visions Resort & Spa will introduce an entirely new way to experience one of the world’s most highly sought tourism destinations, and we are thrilled to join forces with Preferred Hotels & Resorts and create intrinsic value in this collective brand experience,” said Robert Thorne, CEO of UNCG. “Our collaboration will reinforce the property’s position as a stand-out product in the market, and we are eager to unlock incredible possibilities for innovation and growth in Orlando.”

Preferred Hotels & Resorts brings strategic advantage to hotel owners, operators, and management companies through brand prestige and global operating scale, supporting the goals of its member hotels by providing strategic group, corporate, and leisure sales, integrated marketing solutions, comprehensive revenue management, global connectivity through reservations services, progressive distribution technology, and individualized guest support. Every property within the portfolio is required to maintain the high-quality standards and unparalleled service levels required by the Preferred Hotels & Resorts Integrated Quality Assurance Program. Through its global collections – Legend, L.V.X., Lifestyle, and Preferred Residences – Preferred Hotels & Resorts connects discerning travelers to the singular luxury hospitality experience that meets their needs and life and style preferences for each occasion.


Located just 10 minutes from Orlando’s main thoroughfare of Interstate 4, Visions Resort & Spa neighbors top-rated entertainment centers and theme parks, such as Disney’s Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studio, Universal Studios and SeaWorld Orlando.
