The honor is achieved by less than 4% of properties. “We are truly pleased to be recognized with this very prestigious distinction,” said Jeffrey Oliasami, general manager of the resort. “The Renaissance World Golf Village Resort is now part of a very elite group of hotels to have earned this rating, and we’re very proud of our team for accomplishing this great feat.”

To receive the AAA Four Diamond rating, a lodging establishment must consistently reflect upscale and extraordinary characteristics in both physical attributes and level of guest services. To achieve the distinction, the AAA inspector determines that the property meets Four Diamond guidelines, and then the property is evaluated by an anonymous inspector who reviews the property in 12 critical service areas, which includes measurement of over 300 guest interaction points.

The Renaissance World Golf Village Resort and Convention Center was also recently honored with the Medical Meetings M&D Award. Did you know that the property is the largest hotel and convention facility between Orlando and Atlanta? There’s over 86,000 square feet of function space conveniently situated along the village walk next to the World Golf Hall of Fame and the IMAX Entertainment Complex.

But with all the good things that are happening at the Renaissance Resort at World Golf Village, the resort refuses to rest on its laurels.  According to General Manager Jeffrey Oliasami, the Renaissance will continue to make guest-friendly changes and introduce new amenities that enhance the property and guest experience.
