Villas of Grand Cypress is located on 1,500 acres in Orlando. It’s just a few minutes away from Walt Disney World, but its tucked-away location makes it seem sealed off from the crowds that descend on the hectic amusement park. A sizeable chunk of the property is reserved for 45 holes of golf, all designed by Jack Nicklaus, and each guest room is within easy walking distance of the fairway. Turning onto the cypress-lined driveway, you can’t help but feel like you are checking in to a Mediterranean-style golf resort — a feeling that’s reinforced once you see the stucco buildings.
Head to the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel for both recreation and relaxation. Our Forbes Travel Guide editors recommend spending some time on the golf course and then treating yourself to a thick ribeye or Key West yellowtail snapper at NINE18, the resort’s dinner-only restaurant.
