Westgate Resorts reveals details on $14 million transformation of Cocoa Beach resort


Westgate Resorts released details of its new Cocoa Beach resort and invites visitors to experience the finest resort in Cocoa Beach. Coming summer 2018, Wakulla Suites will be completely transformed into Westgate Cocoa Beach Resort after a $14 million comprehensive renovation that is already 50 percent complete. The fully renovated property will boast two-bedroom, two-bathroom and fully equipped high-end condominiums; a tropical-themed water park with a lazy river, splash pad and water play area and a variety of exclusive concierge level services unique to the Space Coast. 

Purchased by Westgate Resorts in 2016, the extensive renovation covers every aspect of the property, including all new exteriors, interiors, lobby and amenities. All the upscale suites will be completely rebuilt from floor-to-ceiling with a sleek, modern design and high-end touches such as stainless-steel appliances and ornate wood finishes. Each suite will feature a living space, full kitchen with both table and bar seating as well two bedrooms and two bathrooms.

The new centerpiece of the beachfront resort will be complimentary guest access to a 75,000-gallon tropical-themed waterpark featuring action slides, a splash pad and a 335-foot lazy river. Centrally located just a few steps from each guest villa, the waterpark will offer lush tropical landscaping and surfing themed décor highlighting the destination’s title as the east coast surfing capital of the U.S.

“Westgate Cocoa Beach Resort will be the most luxurious and exciting resort for families to take a vacation and experience the best of Cocoa Beach,” said Westgate Resorts President and CEO David Siegel. “We have invested over $35 million in projects in the Cocoa Beach community because we believe this is the premier beach destination in Florida.”

Guests of the resort will be able to take advantage of a complimentary shuttle to the nearby Cocoa Beach Pier, which is minutes away. There, beachgoers can enjoy a meal at one of the Pier’s five restaurants, shop at one of the three retail stores, take surf lessons, rent bicycles and enjoy the exclusive Cocoa Beach Pier beach concierge and cabana service.

As part of the renovation project at the Cocoa Beach Pier, groups looking to host family reunions, weddings, executive retreats, incentive trips and others will now be able to take advantage of the finest oceanfront meeting space in Cocoa Beach.

The 3,500-square-foot flexible banquet and meeting space will feature floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Atlantic Ocean as well as a chic bar. The new banquet and meeting space is scheduled to be completed in spring 2018 and will be open for bookings to those not staying at the resort as well.

Located along A1A, Wakulla Suites provides direct beach access for guests and is just a short drive from popular area attractions including Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, Ron Jon Surf Shop and one of the country’s top cruise ports, Port Canaveral.
