Coraltree Hospitality to Manage Lake Nona Wave Hotel in Orlando, Florida

USA, Greenwood Village, Colorado. November 11, 2020

Tom Luersen, president of CoralTree Hospitality, today announced that the company will manage the Lake Nona Wave Hotel in Florida. The 234-room luxury lifestyle hotel, located in the vibrant Lake Nona Town Center, is scheduled to open fall 2021. The Wave Hotel is the vision of Tavistock Development Company and will become a centerpiece of the Lake Nona community urban core.

"We are so excited to be a part of such a vibrant new hotel project," said Luersen. "The Wave Hotel is going to be the social living room of the Lake Nona Town Center. The hotel's location, brand promise, design and service philosophy are reflective of its name, drawing from the energy a wave creates. We look forward to making this concept come to life through thoughtful programming and service that anticipates guests' needs."

Designed by Arquitectonica to be the striking signature epicenter of the Lake Nona Town Center, the hotel's dramatic design inspiration is verticality and movement. The 234-room property will offer 18 suites including two presidential suites of 2,354 square feet. Each room will be appointed with a modern design and personal amenities to make the guest stay even more enjoyable.

The Lake Nona Town Center is a 100-acre, open-air neo-urban district and regional entertainment destination featuring a wide variety of shops, restaurants, offices and hotels all interconnected with green spaces, walkable vistas and the latest in autonomous transportation. The hotel's living room lobby will invite guests and the local community to explore the Town Center plaza, creating a seamless connection between the neo-urban core and the rest of Lake Nona. The lobby is inspired by an eclectic art gallery, welcoming guests with intimate seating areas, communal workspaces, as well as a cocktail bar and game room. On the second floor, the hotel will offer a three-meal restaurant, bar and lounge that overlooks the pool deck. The hotel's signature restaurant will be open for dinner and will provide expansive views of the Town Center plaza.

The pool deck promises to be a popular destination for guests. Located on the third level rooftop, the pool deck will offer cabanas, intimate seating and an area for private events. For the fitness minded, the Wave Hotel will offer a Technogym-powered fitness center and outdoor yoga terrace.

The hotel also promises to be a draw for groups, meetings, galas and social gatherings with more than 10,000 square feet of flexible event space.

The hotel is thoughtfully designed with new technologies such as View Smart Windows, which will enclose the entire structure. View Smart Windows are said to be the most intelligent glass in the world and possess an energy-efficient design solution that instinctively blocks heat and glare but not the view, maximizing comfort and a connection to the outdoors.

"Lake Nona began as a desire for smarter, more sustainable everyday living and quickly became one of the best-selling master designed communities in America," said Rasesh Thakkar, senior managing director of Tavistock. "Lake Nona has redefined what a master-planned community looks like and our centerpiece hotel - The Wave Hotel - will be an elevated reflection of our mission for Lake Nona, which is to create the ideal place that inspires human potential through innovative collaboration. We are thrilled to bring such experienced hoteliers as CoralTree on board to help us launch and manage this exciting, new hotel."

Located minutes from Orlando International Airport, Lake Nona is a 17 square-mile, master-designed community with thousands of residents, hundreds of businesses and millions of visitors each year. Created by Tavistock, Lake Nona is built on partnerships and innovations that bridge the connection between live, work, stay and play. An idealized city of the future, Lake Nona is an environment designed for people, institutions and businesses to thrive.

Hotel Law: Protecting Guest Privacy

Every business is obligated to protect their customers from identity theft but unfortunately, data breaches have become all too common. In an effort to protect a guest's right to privacy and to safeguard their personal data, the European Union passed a General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that could hold hotels legally liable for any breaches that expose a customer's sensitive personal information. Though the GDPR only pertains to EU citizens' data, any international business that mishandles their data can be legally responsible. Another legal issue of concern is the fight involving hotel "resort fees." Several states attorney generals have recently filed suit against two major hotel chains in an effort to litigate this practice. Their suit alleges that these companies are "engaged in deceptive and misleading pricing practices and their failure to disclose fees is in violation of consumer protection laws." The suit seeks to force the hotel chains to advertise the true price of their hotel rooms. There are several other legal issues that the industry is being forced to address. Sexual harassment prevention in the workplace is still top of mind for hotel employers-particularly in New York and California, which now statutorily require harassment training. Hotels and motels in California will also soon be required to train all their employees on human trafficking awareness. Immigration issues are also of major concern to hotel employers, especially in the midst of a severe labor shortage. The government is issuing fewer H2B visas for low-skilled workers, as well as J-1 visas for temporary workers. Though there is little hope for any comprehensive immigration reform, hotel lobbying groups are actively seeking legal remedies to alleviate this problem. These are just a few of the critical issues that the December issue of the Hotel Business Review will examine in the area of hotel law.
