The busy lives that event professionals and their attendees lead can often leave them feeling drained at the meeting’s end, but what if your guests left an event feeling more refreshed than when they arrived? The experts at JW Marriott Bonnet Creek Resort & Spa in Orlando, Florida, which is opening in early 2020 with 516 guest rooms and 50,000 sq. ft. of event space, have some tips for helping guest leave rejuvenated and inspired.
Health and wellness are of the utmost importance, especially on the road. Embrace the joyful energy that comes from being naturally relaxed and refreshed. Scheduling some downtime so attendees can take advantage of rejuvenating massage and facial treatments can go a long way toward helping them focus during the keynote. Express pods located and Spa by JW allow for holistic wellness to enrich mind, body and spirit.
A dip in the warm, outdoor pool or a relaxing soak in a whirlpool as the sun sets over Bonnet Creek, a nature preserve, as we bring nature inside to create moments of focus and calm.
Offering morning yoga by the pool or rooftop—JW Marriott Orlando Bonnet Creek—allows attendees to choose a healthy start to the day. Back that up with fruit and yogurt as an alternative to pastries and coffee.
That same rooftop terrace could be the site of a dinner that starts with a jazz quartet, locally inspired dishes under twinkling lights and a toast by the glow of nightly firework displays from nearby Walt Disney World. Signature restaurants and personalized catering services onsite connect attendees to the destination we nourish the soul through inspiring dining options.
Leave the marathon treks for the fitness track, however. When all the meeting space is on one floor, that allows attendees to mingle while providing plenty of space to spread out. JW Marriott Bonnet Creek’s 22,000-square-foot Griffin Ballroom and 8,000-square-foot Palm Ballroom nourishes the spirit with abundant natural light, while Griffin Ballroom Foyer and many of the breakout spaces offer floor-to-ceiling windows and inspiring views.
When it comes to sunshine, more is better. And when it is time to focus on the presentation, there are blackout curtains and an advanced AV system for that. We offer thoughtful areas with inspired programming.
