Reunion Resort is a Salamander Property located just off the beaten path in Kissimmee. Literally, it’s a hop, skip, and a jump from all of the area’s highlight destinations, but figuratively – it’s a world away from it all. Situated on more than 2,000 acres of land, Reunion Resort is the only resort in the world featuring three signature golf courses (designed by golf legends Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Tom Watson). Additionally, Reunion Resort is home to 11 pools and a water park. The property boasts an assortment of villas and suites ranging from 700 to 2,350 square feet – each with a fully-equipped kitchen. Guests enjoy complimentary high-speed wireless internet and complimentary parking.
Aside from a vast array of amenities available to resort guests only, Reunion is happy to welcome visitors to enjoy their spectacular on-site dining options. We were recently invited to a delicious event, “A Taste of Reunion”. which allowed us to partake in some of the spotlight menu selections available to the public at Reunion Resort’s Grande Lobby Sushi Bar, Forte, and Eleven.
Grande Lobby Sushi Bar is aptly located just off the side of the lobby. It’s a fantastic introductory stop for a light dinner, snacks, or evening cocktail. On select nights, Chef Michael Ha delivers “HAsome” freshly prepared sushi with a heaping helping of personality. I’m a bit ashamed to admit that this was my first experience with sushi, but Chef Ha was thrilled to give me an enlightened introduction (even offering to feed me if I found the chopsticks confounding). I agreed to try whatever Chef Ha suggested, and after years of avoidance, I have to admit… I think I’m a sushi fan! My top recommendation is the “Grand Reunion Roll” –
Shrimp Tempura, Cucumber, Steamed Shrimp, Toasted Sesame Seeds & “HA” Special Sauce. It goes wonderfully with “Alex’s Signature Sangria”. Trust Chef Ha’s suggestions for sauces, and enjoy a blast of intertwined flavor that compliments and contradicts so blissfully! The atmosphere of the Sushi Bar is inviting and comfortable for a quick and easy evening out, individually, as a couple, or with a group of friends, and best of all – the prices are fair!
