Just in time for Spring Break, The Grove Resort & Spa Orlando is opening the much-anticipated Surfari Waterpark. Orlando is unique in that people can visit nearly any week of the year, but the city explodes in popularity during spring break season. We understand the draw; sunshine, theme parks, warm weather, and resort fun!

Ever since The Grove opened in March of 2017, it’s been incrementally rolling out new amenities. Surfari is the final piece of the extensive lineup of activities available at the all-suite residential-style resort. In honor of spring break season being JUST around the corner, let’s take a closer look at all the fun to be had at Surfari.

Of all water park features, the lazy river is a timeless classic. Even the most energetic kids eventually need a rest and find themselves enjoying the lazy river. Surfari’s lazy river is slow paced, features cascading waterfalls, water cannons, and overhead bridges. Not a terrible way to spend the day, eh?

When in Doubt, Water-Slide It Out

Water slides are also a timeless water park feature, and bring joy to so many. We’ve also found, that for those having a more challenging time fully relaxing on vacation, a few runs down the water slides helps to clear the mind and excite the spirit! Surfari has two water slides, one that is enclosed for a more adrenaline-focused experience, and one that is open so sliders can enjoy the sunshine.

Let The Kids Run Wild in The Jungle Pool


Water parks are a kid’s dream-come-true, and that will prove to be true as soon as kids lay eyes on the two-story jungle adventure pool awaiting at Surfari. This one water park feature, alone, will provide endless hours of excitement for the little ones.

Spring breakers, get ready. Surfari has its grand opening this March, and if you intend to visit for Spring Break, you may well be among the first ever to enjoy it. The Grove Resort & Spa has been working diligently to bring Surfari to fruition, and we can’t wait for you all to experience it.

It’s also worth noting, The Grove is considered a Disney World-area resort, due to its close proximity to the theme park. Not only does The Grove have ample entertainment on-site, but you can also plan a day or two at the iconic Walt Disney World, without going very far.
