The Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress will offer our SAGA Convention Attendees so much more than a comfortable place to rest at the end of your busy stitching and smocking day.
Need to catch up on email or check-in with family members? High speed wireless internet is included in your resort fee. For your convenience, you room also includes a “cool box” to store beverages or snacks during your stay.
And, when you’re ready for sleep, A Good Night from YogaAway, a complimentary 11-minute yoga class accessible on your TV, is designed to relax your body and mind as you prepare to rest.
There are some awesome included recreational opportunities to take advantage of before or after classes or during scheduled free time.
An enhanced lagoon pool, located along the 1,000 feet of white sandy beach of private Lake Windsong, features 12 waterfalls, heated and non-heated pools, two whirlpools, new Water Slide Tower Pavilion, new Water Jet Splash Zone, new children’s Rock Climbing Stations, rope bridge, walking paths, and expansive, wrap-around sundecks. On the Rocks, the pool and beach bar, is right there to ensure you are well-hydrated!
You can get a feel for Florida’s natural environment by taking a spin around the lovely 1,500 acre property on one of the complimentary beach cruiser bicycles. Or, take a ride with the whole family or some friends on one of the old-fashioned, canopied surrey bikes. If jogging or walking is your sport, there are three varying trails, ranging from 1.3 to 4.7 miles, perfect for an invigorating workout.
But the options don’t stop there! Consider taking a leisurely ride in a paddleboat or relax in a kayak (also included in your resort fee). The hotel also offers hydro bikes, canoes, aqua cycles and sailboats.
Is golf your game? (Perhaps this can be an incentive to bring your husband along.) You can play 18 holes on any of four championship Jack Nicklaus-designed courses on the property. The new 18-hole course brings Scottish Links to Florida, complete with 12-foot pot bunkers, stone walls, and more. Greens of Lake Windsong will test your short game on an Executive 9 hole, Par 3 course. The Hyatt will supply the clubs, tees, scorecards, and a complimentary golf ball. (Golf fees apply and reservations are required for all courses.) For the more casually inclined, there’s also a nine-hole pitch ‘n’ putt course.
There is also an expansive fitness center (included in your resort service fee), accessible 24 hour a day, as well as tennis, racketball, and basketball courts.
The Hotel also offers a spa and salon if you want to pamper and treat yourself to a mani-pedi or facial!
Dining options also abound. Seven restaurants and bars offer everything from coffee and cocktails to island fair, including steak and seafood, as well as casual dining for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
So whether you want some quiet, relaxing downtime or are looking for an invigorating workout Florida-style, you’ll find an abundance of options to make your stay at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress during this year’s Convention the best ever!
