Hi everyone! I just came back from an AMAZING staycation at the Westgate River Ranch in Florida. This resort is unlike any other I’ve stayed before because you get to camp in a tipi glamping tent.

The Westgate is known for their Orlando hotels, and I have to admit I wasn’t familiar with their other properties. 

Here are five reasons why the Westgate River Ranch is an excellent staycation choice.

Oi! Eu acabei de voltar de um fim de semana TOP no Westgate River Ranch. Um resort em um rancho, onde você tem a oportunidade de se hospedar em um teeppe (aquelas cabanas de índio americano).

O Westgate é conhecido por seus hotéis em Orlando mas tenho que admitir que até recentemente eu não conhecia nenhuma de suas outras propriedades.

Aqui estão cinco razões que fazem do Westgate River Ranch a escolha perfeita para uma staycation.

 

* Thank you, Westgate River Ranch, for hosting my family. Although my visit was sponsored, this post reflects my opinions and experiences.

* Obrigada, Westgate Resorts pelo convite. Esse post reflete a minha opinião e experiência.

1 – NOT FAR

1 – PRÓXIMO

A dude ranch vacation at Westgate was closer than I thought it would be! The resort is located about 1h30 drive from Orlando and Tampa, which makes it a perfect weekend escape if you live in Florida, or a great add-on to your Florida vacation.

You will definitely need a couple of days to relax from the theme parks before going back to your routine.

 

O Westgate River Ranch é mais próximo do que eu imaginava! Esse resort fica localizado a uma hora e meia de Orlando e Tampa, perfeito para uma escapadinha no fim de semana se você mora aqui na Flórida.

Para quem mora no Brasil, o resort pode facilmente ser adicionado ao roteiro para você relaxar depois da maratona de parques. Afinal por todo mundo precisa de uns dias de descanso depois de visitar Orlando, né?

2 – ACTIVITIES

2 – ATIVIDADES

There is so much to do at the Westgate River Ranch, it’s impossible to get bored. You can do as much (or as little) as you want.

You will find activities suitable for everyone in your family. You can book recreation even if you are not staying in the resort, so if you live nearby, make it a day trip!

Here are some of the activities we got to try:

 

 

 Existem tantas coisas para se fazer no Westgate River Ranch que é impossível você ficar entediado. Existem atividades para todos os gostos e idades, com certeza você vai encontrar algo que te agrade.

Você pode agendar atividades mesmo sem estar hospedado no hotel, então se você mora por aqui: daytrip!

Algumas atividades que fizemos foram:

Horseback Riding

Skeet Shoot/ Tiro ao alvo

Don’t laugh, but this was my first time shooting a gun! Yes, my shoulder as a little sore the next day, and no, I didn’t hit any target, but this was a TON of fun.

Eu nunca tinha atirado uma arma antes e apesar de não ter acertado nenhum alvo e me diverti demais e já quero praticar novamente!

3 – GLAMPING TENTS

3 – CABANAS DE GLAMPING

The Westgate River Ranch offers a wide range of accommodations to fit any family size and budget. You can choose from a camping site, a two-bedroom cottage, and anything in between.

My husband and I love the outdoors, but we are very different people when it comes to accommodations taste. He enjoys camping, I prefer a luxury stay.  

Glamping is the perfect solution! A tipi hotel is a unique experience you will never forget. You are in the middle of nature, but without sacrificing comfort. 

 Another great benefit of staying in one of the tipi rooms is that activities, breakfast, afternoon snacks, and golf cart rental are included!

 

O Westgate River Ranch tem uma enorme variedade de acomodações para todas as pessoas e orçamentos. Você pode escolher desde acampamento até chalés de dois quartos.

Minha família AMA natureza, mas quando se fala em acomodação eu e o meu marido temos o gosto oporto; ele gosta de acampar e eu prefiro um hotel cinco estrelas 

Glamping (glamour + camping) é a solução perfeita, e uma experiência que você não vai esquecer NUNCA

As cabanas teepee de luxo também oferecem uma série de outros benefícios! Quem fica hospedado nesse tipo de quarto tem atividades, café da manhã, lanchinho da tarde e aluguel de carrinho de golf incuídos na diária!

4 – AMENITIES

4 – AMENIDADES

 The Westgate River Ranch has a lot of amenities to make your life easier during your stay. 

 Believe me, you will appreciate them! As I mentioned, the resort is secluded, which means that a run to a grocery store is not as easy as you might think.  

I definitely recommend you stop at a grocery store on the way to the resort if you plan to grill or cook in your cottage. We didn’t, but we didn’t miss anything because the general store has sandwiches, pizza, and hot food items.  

The Westgate River Ranch also sells Starbucks coffee on the property!

They also have a gym, laundry facilities, a restaurant, and a marina.

O hotel possui diversas amenidades para facilitar a sua vida e acreditem você vai agradecer por isso!

O resort é super recluso e dar uma passadinha no supermercado não é a coisa mais fácil.

Se você pretende fazer um churrasquinho ou cozinhar enquanto estiver por lá, planeje o seu supermercado antes. Se você como eu quer passar longe da cozinha, a General Store tem sanduíches, pizza e buffet que varia diariamente.

Outra coisa importante o Westgate River Ranch também tem uma Starbucks! 

Além disso, o hotel possui uma lavanderia, academia, restaurante (estava fechado quando visitamos) e uma marina.

5 – SAFETY MEASURES

5 – MEDIDAS DE SEGURANÇA

I haven’t been to a hotel since the quarantine started, and things that I normally wouldn’t worry are a concern now.

I was VERY impressed how the Westgate River Ranch is handling things, especially when it comes to the activities.

Face coverings are mandatory on the petting farm, airboat and stables, for example. Not only that, but they disinfect EVERYTHING in front of the guests, which made my stay much more relaxing.
 

Desde que a quarentena começou, essa foi a primeira vez que nos hospedamos em um hotel e eu não vou negar que estava um pouco ansiosa 

Os cuidados do Westgate River Ranch me impressionaram! Especialmente quando se trata das atividades.

Máscaras são obrigatórias para entrar na fazendinha, estábulos, ou ir no airboat por exemplo. Só só isso mas absolutamente TUDO é desinfetado na frente dos hóspedes, o que fez a minha estadia ser SUPER relaxante.
