KISSIMMEE, FL (July 27, 2010) — Club La Costa Resorts & Hotels has announced its first resort in the world-renowned tourist destination of Orlando in Florida, USA.
The company has purchased Encantada, a resort with its own natural lake just 8km from Walt Disney World at Kissimmee, Orlando, the heart of America’s theme park capital.
Encantada joins the growing portfolio of Club La Costa mixed use resorts. Further global expansion is expected this year as the company continues its quest to create a worldwide network of resorts.
In addition to internationally-famous theme parks, Encantada is close to dozens of other attractions, entertainment and sports, including a number of first-class golf courses.
CLC chairman Roy Peires said: “The announcement of our new resort has already caused a lot of excitement among our members who can look forward to a resort exhibiting Club La Costa high standards in this sought after destination.”
