Imagine a hotel where the pulsating energy of an entire community collects within its walls. That’s the Wave Hotel, opening in 2021. The hotel is currently under construction, and will be one of the most beautiful and memorable destination hotels in Central Florida.
First announced in 2017, the Wave Hotel is situated in Lake Nona Town Center, the beating heart of the community, where locals gather in the evenings to rest, recharge and reconnect with family and friends. In fact, the hotel is positioned as an extension of the Town Center, welcoming all — travelers and residents alike — to spend time within its common areas, which connect to the Town Center’s spacious green lawn and myriad dining, shopping and entertainment opportunities.
The building, designed by renowned architectural firm, Arquitectonica, will host more than 200 guest rooms, an elegant lobby and more than 5,000 square feet of meeting space. Food, beverage and retail options will occupy the ground floor, giving visitors a glimpse into Lake Nona’s forward-thinking mission through elevated experiences and excellence in hospitality.
The design of the building reflects Lake Nona’s vibrant and transformative qualities. Waves, by definition, are phenomena that transfer energy through matter and space, and that’s exactly what guests should feel as they enter and stay at this vibrant hotel. Guests should feel a transfer of energy and, at the same time, should feel in tune with their own biological, mental and emotional energy as they experience memorable moments within its walls.
The Wave Hotel is outfitted with some of the technologies created in Lake Nona itself, including View Smart windows, which automatically change their tint depending on weather and lighting conditions. This is the perfect capsule example of what Lake Nona sees as one of its main missions: innovative collaboration in technology and design. The Wave Hotel is inspired by energy, and infused with excellence in hospitality, amenities, decor and service.
Located just minutes from Orlando International Airport (MCO), the Wave Hotel will be ideal for both business and leisure travelers. Guests traveling for work will be centrally located to Lake Nona’s business campuses, as well as Medical City, and just minutes from UCF and downtown Orlando. Here for play? Just a jaunt down SR 528 will put you in the heart of Orlando’s tourism district with access via I-4 to the theme parks.
The Wave Hotel’s focus on community and wellness make it an ideal place to rest and recharge after a long day of meetings, fun with family, and is a vibrant place for all to enjoy the fully equipped bar and resort-style pool deck.
The Wave’s “high frequency” ideals are in perfect sync with the pulse of commerce and community. Park your laptop in the living room lobby and take in the spacious communal area where people connect with an ever-changing pulse of commerce and entertainment, or stay up a little bit past your bedtime at the pool deck lounge. The Wave has something for everyone, wrapped up in a modern, connected, innovative package: Welcome to the anti-routine.
