LOCAL NEWS

Good news for all owners at the Royal Floridian and Royal Floridian South! 

Tripadvisor recently released its annual Travelers’ Choice Awards list of top 25 beaches in the United States. Ormond Beach has made the list for 2021. “Very nice beach, very close to Daytona, yet a little less crowded. There are plenty of activities and dining choices within walking distance.”  Sea you at the beach! 

Are you in town April 2 or 8? Travis Tritt and The Lacs “Rise and Shine Tour” will be performing live at Destination Daytona.  

Travis Tritt is a popular Southern rock-influenced artist. He continues to stay true and relevant to country music fans across the globe. In addition to many hit singles, he has amassed more than 30 million in career album sales, two Grammys, three CMA Awards and a devoted fan base coast-to-coast.  

Clay Sharpe and Brian King know it better than most. As The Lacs, they take all that they’ve witnessed, roll it up in a unique sound they call “dirt rock” and lay down the truth as they see it. 

RESORT NEWS

With 2020 being an extremely challenging year for both Royal Floridian and Royal Floridian South, Association Resort projects were slowed deliberately in some instances and unfortunately in others! We will continue to move forward with planning between the Southwind Management and your respective Board of Directors in order to make your resorts the best the area has to offer. By your participation and commitment to your HOA the resorts can continue to succeed and offer a fantastic vacation experience. 

The largest setback for Royal Floridian Resort projects has been the “pause” of the villa renovations. As a result of the pandemic, the Board and Management Team were forced to place Phase Four on hold. Two main reasons contributed to the pause. The first being the closure of the resorts April-May due to the pandemic disrupted planned vacations. Rooms blocked for the renovation needed to be released to allow owners to fulfill 2020 usage. Secondly, due to the lack of supplies available and the inability to confirm materials for both constructions and room refurbishments, there was no choice but to pause the renovations. I am pleased to report that Phase Four will move forward at the end of 2021 and into 2022. Phase Four will include villas on the South end of the building on the fourth and third floors. 

RESORT IMPROVEMENTS

Royal Floridian Improvements

 During the annual maintenance week all villas underwent an annual Maintenance inspection and Housekeeping deep clean. Maintenance project includes review of all Fire Safety components, all mechanical and electrical components and overall condition of the rooms. In addition, all villa door locks were replaced with Onity Trillium RFID system. This upgraded lock system is major step forward to in lock technology and security.

 Pool Deck and Parking Garage Repairs

You may notice on the upper deck some discoloration when you visit, some minor concrete repairs will be ongoing each year to address new issues or problems that arise. In 2015 the upper pool deck underwent major repairs, areas that were not repaired (as they were intact and in good condition at the time) are showing some signs of spalling. The Board and Management teams are being vigilant and addressing as troubled areas arise.

The Royal Floridian South Board approved replacing all front door jambs and doors during maintenance week 2020. Unfortunately, the ripple effects of pandemic hindered the progress significantly as doors failed to deliver on promised dates. The project was pushed back several weeks and due to the delays in materials we only managed to repair the 5th floor doors entries as villas needed to be released for owner usage. We have now received all doors and this project will resume in December 2021 into 2022.

  • The project will handle the corrosive beachfront environment:
  • Remove metal frames, doors and will be replaced with resin plus fiberglass systems
  • All doors anticipated to be replaced by February 2022
