At this point, it’s pretty standard that luxury resorts have high-end pools available to guests. But a new property being built in Florida took that idea to a whole new level. Evermore Orlando Resort will feature an eight-acre pool that resembles a lagoon.

The unique amenity is part of a billion-dollar-plus redevelopment of the former Villas at Grand Cypress that will open phase one in 2023. The 1,100-acre resort complex borders Walt Disney World and will eventually include 10,000-bedrooms spread among single homes, villas, flats, and a luxury Conrad hotel.
A 20-acre tropical beach complex lies at the heart of the resort and features an eight-acre crystaline water amenity by Crystal Lagoons called Evermore Bay. While it looks like a natural lagoon, the proprietary design is like a massive pool that uses up to 100 times fewer chemicals and takes just two percent of the energy required by a conventional swimming pool filtration system.

You’ll be able to safely lounge as you would in a typical pool, but it’s also large enough to engage in classic lake-like watersports. Cabanas and private fire-pits along the sandy edge enhance that beach-like feel. Other amenities will include a food hall, gourmet market, restaurants, private event space, and a new 18-hole Nicklaus Design.
