Interval International, a leading global provider of vacation services and an operating business of ILG (Nasdaq: ILG), announced the affiliation of the Westgate Cocoa Beach Resort. Scheduled to debut in July 2018, the newly transformed 120 villa beachfront resort will include comprehensive upgrades to all guestrooms and the addition of a water park and lazy river.
“We greatly value our long-standing relationship with Westgate, which spans more than 25 years,” said Craig Nash, chairman, president and CEO of ILG. “As Westgate continues to expand its impressive resort portfolio, we look forward to providing our members with even more outstanding vacation experiences.”
“Westgate Cocoa Beach will set the new standard for luxury beach vacations in central Florida,” said David Siegel, founder & CEO of Westgate Resorts. “We couldn’t be more pleased to affiliate this resort with Interval International, who has a history of offering the best locations in our industry.”
Renovations include new exterior finishes, a complete remodel of all interiors, a new lobby and a brand new 75,000-gallon lazy river. Owners and guests will enjoy two and four-bedroom deluxe villas furnished with a bright Polynesian décor and hand-carved tiki sculptures complemented by artistic sea life and flora and fauna murals. Each villa will have a full kitchen with stainless-steel appliances, table and bar seating, living area with sofa sleeper and dining area, and complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi.
Guests will experience a host of onsite amenities, including an exciting new waterpark with a splash pad, two-story slide and a 335-foot lazy river. All of the Villas overlook either the resort’s renovated pool and tiki bar area or the brand-new Polynesian-themed water park. The resort also offers guests an exclusive beach & surf concierge service, heated outdoor pool, video arcade, beach volleyball, and beach rental equipment.
Located along A1A, the pet-friendly resort provides direct access to the area’s white-sand beaches and is just a short drive from popular area attractions, such as the Westgate Cocoa Beach Pier, Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, Ron Jon Surf Shop, and Port Canaveral, one of the country’s top cruise ports.
