As part of the incredible transformation, the resort has added a unique and engaging new addition, the Banyan Buddies Kids Club, for the youngest resort guests.

With Banyan Buddies, parents can be assured that their children will stay engaged with an innovative activities menu. Styled as a playful jungle, children will find toucans and chameleons blending in as colorful wall art, along with stadium seating and a complete indoor playground, all under a banyan tree. Available for kids ages 4-12, the resort offers a variety of sessions from 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM, as well as ‘Kids Night Out’ sessions on Friday evenings from 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM - perfect for date night at one of the fantastic celebrity chef-helmed restaurants! Banyan Buddies also offers birthday parties for kids – great for celebrating a special occasion with a group of friends or family! 

Available until September 30th, book any room offer or package and enjoy glorious perks including complimentary Kids Club at Banyan Buddies, complimentary self-parking, and the decadence of early check-in and late check-out. With the kids entertained, parents can indulge in the luxurious spa, play a round on the 99 holes of championship golf, learn the fastest growing sport in America, pickleball, dine at the celebrity chef-helmed restaurants, and more.
