Sunlight Resorts has several new luxury resorts in development in the Sunshine State, with the first scheduled to open on Dec. 28, 2020.
The Resort at Canopy Oaks in Lake Wales will be the newest premier RV resort on the East Coast, and is now taking reservations and inviting the public to a New Year’s Eve celebration, as well as a Grand Opening celebration.
Breaking ground at the beginning of 2021, Sunlight Resorts will also begin construction on two additional resorts located in Ocala, Florida, and in Sebring, Florida. All three properties bring an elevated suite of amenities to the RV resort landscape.
The Resort at Canopy Oaks is a 435-acre property located in the heart of central Florida on over 200 acres of green space that encapsulates the mother-nature feel with a Florida vibe. The first phase of this 1,000-site resort will consist of over 400 over-sized RV sites that are a minimum of 45’x90’ with a 20’x70’, all being concrete pads with full hookups and 50amp service. Surrounded by premium landscaping, the five different site types range from Standard to Platinum, including waterfront options. All sites include a fire ring and a picnic table, while upgraded sites featuring brick paver patios and encased fire pits. Platinum sites include a built-in outdoor kitchen and stainless-steel grill. For those traveling without an RV, the resort offers 14 two-story spacious cottages that accommodate up to six people.
Residents and visitors can expect an experiential visit with the superior grounds and activities at Canopy Oaks. The resort boasts modern amenities and a unique portfolio of offerings that include a convenience store, pizza and sandwich shop, spa, hair and nail salon, coffee and ice cream shop, an arts and crafts center, a business center, and most notably a Tiki Bar. As a signature structure, Sunlight Resorts will showcase distinctive full-service Tiki-bars at all of the Florida properties.
The expansive state-of-the-art clubhouse features a banquet kitchen, a first-class swimming pool with a rock waterfall hot tub, a fitness center, game room, mail room, showers, and laundry room – along with two additional separate bath and laundry facilities. There are also two regulation shuffleboard courts, two regulation bocce ball courts, and eight tournament style pickleball courts. The resort is pet-friendly and offers an outdoor exercise area for dogs.
“One of the goals we are striving to accomplish with this brand is to resolve the challenges that consumers have expressed with other RV parks and resorts around the country, such as small sites, grass parking, small clubhouses, and no trees,” said Tristan Farrell, President of Sunlight Resorts.
“We’ve set out to change that standard while maintaining affordability, and all of our properties will address these issues and go beyond the traditional offerings typical of many resorts today.”
One of the first events being held at the Resort at Canopy Oaks is a New Year’s Party, open to the public. Held at the resort’s Tiki Bar, the celebration includes entertainment and a fireworks display, taking place from 5pm to 2am. Following on Jan. 8, 2021, from 5 to 10 p.m., the Grand Opening celebration for the resort takes place for visitors as well as being open to the public, with participation from the Lake Wales Chamber of Commerce, the Frostproof Chamber of Commerce, and other local influencers.
The other two Florida resorts are expected to open in Fall 2021, with Champions Run Resort offering more than 400 sites in Ocala, Florida; and Sebring Square Resort with over 200 sites in Sebring, Florida. Both properties will offer consistent accommodations and many of the amenities similar to Canopy Oaks, including the signature Tiki Bar.
The Resort at Canopy Oaks is also an ideal destination for vacations, weddings, corporate events, and other special celebrations. For more information on booking an event call (863) 213-0346. To make a resort reservation visit https://resortatcanopyoaks.com.
