“The Renaissance World Golf Village Resort and Beach Club is perfect for a girlfriends’ getaway, as the women can relax at a luxurious AAA Four-Diamond resort in a lush setting, as well as enjoy the world-class Spa Laterra, the beautiful oceanfront Serenata Beach Club, golf on one of our renowned golf courses, and the historic sites of charming downtown St. Augustine,” said Scott Selvaggi, the resort’s director of sales & marketing. “Add in the resort’s location just one exit from the St. Augustine Premium Outlets, which features 85 stores, and the group is in for a wonderful getaway.”

Located within the lush 6,300-acre World Golf Village, the resort is the only Northeast Florida resort and convention center to receive the prestigious AAA Four Diamond rating. The honor is achieved by less than 4% of the AAA approved properties.

Situated adjacent to the impressive World Golf Hall of Fame, the resort completed many enhancements in 2011, which included the opening of the Villagio Italian Grille; the opening of The Resort Shop, which serves a full menu of Starbuck’s coffees, breakfast fare, sandwiches, soups, salads, wraps, and desserts, as well as an array of local gifts and souvenirs; the expansion of its outdoor event and recreational space La Terrazza; the addition of a beautiful new fountain called La Piazza; the addition of a picturesque new gazebo; and the expansion of its pool deck with new seating areas.

These enhancements follow a $10 million resort-wide renovation that was completed in 2008, which included the complete remodeling of guest rooms and suites, a dramatically-renovated lobby, newly-remodeled guest room corridors, and an expanded fitness center with state-of-the-art equipment. The resort also boasts a dramatically remodeled nine-story atrium lobby, featuring a Colonial/Asian theme with lush foliage and a colorful 7-story modern hanging sculpture that is reminiscent of open Florida skies.

Recreational options at the resort include the two championship golf courses, a large fitness center with state-of-the-art equipment, a sauna, pool, hot tub, and full-service concierge. Guests also have access to four additional golf courses within 15 minutes of the resort, for a total of 108 holes of golf.
Guests also are an easy walk to the World Golf Hall of Fame, the ultimate destination for the celebration of golf, with fun interactive exhibits, and historic golf artifacts. Also within an easy walk are The World Golf Hall of Fame’s 18-hole real grass putting course, a 132-yard Island Challenge Hole, an IMAX® 3D Theater, and the Walk of Champions. Guests also can take golf lessons at the renowned PGA TOUR Golf Academy.
To make it easy for its guests to enjoy the area, The Renaissance World Golf Village Resort now provides a complimentary shuttle for individual guests (based on availability) to and from historic downtown St. Augustine. The service enables guests to easily visit such sites in St. Augustine, which was founded in 1565, as the historic Castillo de San Marcos fort, The Fountain of Youth, and shopping on the charming, brick-paved St. George Street. Additional options in downtown St. Augustine include the Old Town Trolley Tour, The Old Jail, The St. Augustine History Museum, The Oldest Wooden Schoolhouse, and a variety of water activities.
