The 216-room luxury lodge at the Bowling Green, Fla., resort, designed by Alberto Alfonso, officially opened January 17. Amenities include three restaurants, floor-to-ceiling glass in guestrooms and suites, a 7,000-sq. ft. grotto-style spa called AcquaPietra, and a rooftop lounge.
Streamsong Resort’s centerpiece, a 216-room luxury Lodge, officially opened January 17, unlocking the full experience of the property’s 16,000 natural acres. Streamsong features critically acclaimed golf, world-class bass fishing, a sporting clays facility, a grotto-style spa, food offerings, vistas, wildlife and more.
C&RB featured the resort in the November 2013 cover story (“Putting the Pieces Together at Streamsong Resort”).
“Our mission at Streamsong is to redefine what guests, particularly golfers from all over the world, should expect from a luxury resort,” said General Manager Richard Mogensen. “With the opening of the Lodge, our guests can now experience this incredible place in its entirety. From a breathtaking natural environment to luxurious accommodations, fantastic dining and incomparable guest service, Streamsong will no doubt emerge as one of the most unique destinations in the United States and the world.”
At the resort, guests can experience Streamsong Red, designed by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw, and Streamsong Blue, designed by Renaissance Golf Design (Tom Doak). Streamsong guests can also take guided excursions on the property’s prolific bass fishing lakes; explore bird-watching and wildlife along a tranquil nature trail; test their aim at the resort’s sporting clays facility; indulge in European spa treatments; and take a dip in the lakeside infinity pool.
At the Lodge’s three restaurants, guests can enjoy a culinary journey with dishes to tempt every palate. They can savor contemporary Italian cuisine like osso buco, stone oven-roasted duck breast and chicken involtini at SottoTerra; indulge in traditional Floridian comfort foods like Apalachicola oysters, conch chowder and buttermilk fried chicken at P2O5; or sample pub-style small plates including sriracha glazed chicken skewers, warm blue cheese potato chips and buffalo pork rinds at Fragmentary Blue.
Award-winning architect Alberto Alfonso designed Streamsong’s Lodge to showcase and celebrate the property’s natural environment. Guestrooms and suites feature floor-to-ceiling glass and offer stunning views of the property’s lakes and surroundings. AcquaPietra, a 7,000-sq. ft. grotto-style spa with seven unique pool experiences and nine treatment rooms, represents the prehistoric seas that once covered the region. Fragmentary Blue, the Lodge’s rooftop lounge, provides the perfect spot for sunrise and sunset viewing and stargazing.
The property’s golf clubhouse—which opened in January 2013 and is also designed by Alfonso Architects—features banquet space with sweeping water views, 12 guestrooms, Restaurant Fifty-Nine, a steak and seafood-themed restaurant, and a bar, lounge, and golf shop.
