Tranquilo Golf Course at Four Seasons Resort Orlando is certified by the National Audubon Society as a certified wildlife sanctuary. The addition of native plants and trees, as well as the creation of naturalized areas on the golf course to provide water and food for local and migratory wildlife, was a key factor in the course’s certification. As part of the enhancements when the course opened, all of the greens were resurfaced with Tiff Eagle Bermuda grass, in addition to improvements to drainage in many key areas of the course. Four Seasons Golf & Sports Club has met rigorous standards to maintain the prestigious Audubon certification since 2014.
Four Seasons worked with EDSA landscaping firm to develop/enhance the 26-acre lakeside environment. There are 114 different plant species on the property, and a total of 1,140 trees. A total of 49 trees were transplanted Live Oak trees, saved from where they once were planted on the golf course (Eagle Pines) which the resort was built upon. There are also 927 palm trees and 72,000 shrubs/ground covers. The abundant landscaping adds to the environment and provides a wonderful setting for native wildlife.
The resort has 10 recycling service stations at main pathways/entrance points throughout the resort and works with several companies to recycle products such as cardboard, wood pallets, metal hangers, and even food waste for compost programs. Four Seasons Resort Orlando has been a Clean the World Partner since 2017, donating 461,000 bars of soap, 200,000 pounds of plastic and 186,000 pounds of cardboard. With this support, Clean the World has diverted 44,533 pounds of waste and has created 138,737 new soap bars from this single property.*data as of January 2022
Green Design Features In-Room and Green Meetings Program
The resort’s guestrooms all feature high-efficiency light bulbs, and thermostats equipped with sensors to best control the HVAC when the room is occupied or vacant. Guests can opt to reduce water consumption through the resort’s water conservation program, where bed linens are not washed daily. All Four Seasons properties offer a Green Meetings program. The program allows meeting planners to select a variety of environmentally friendly options to create the most sustainable events possible. These can include: dry erase boards as opposed to paper flip charts, on-site recycling and paperless conference correspondence, using china and silverware instead of disposable utensils for meals, menus including a generous amount of locally grown fare and the donation of leftover decoration and display materials to local organizations.
Electric Car Charging Stations
Four Seasons Resort Orlando offers eight Tesla charging stations and two General Electric car charging stations for the convenience of our guests who are driving an electric-powered car.
Product Donation to Local Charities
Four Seasons Resort Orlando donates toiletry items to local charities including Clean the World, as noted above, and several homeless shelters. Linens (sheets, towels, blankets) that are no longer in circulation at the resort are donated to the Orlando Pet Alliance. Natural wine corks are donated to Whole Foods, who in partnership with Cork ReHarvest, transports (with a zero-carbon footprint system) the used corks to make post-consumer products such as children’s playground surfaces. With a recent renovation, numerous guestroom furnishings were donated to local charities.
Farm to Table/Dining
The resort’s Food & Beverage team strives to support local farmers and local food suppliers. The resort sources the freshest local seafood from Florida’s Bar Harbour seafood company. The resort also has worked with Lake Meadows Naturals farm in Ocoee, Florida or eggs and farms in Clermont, Florida for produce. Plancha restaurant has operated its own herb garden, and many herbs are featured in the restaurant’s craft cocktails and salads. Plastic straws have been eliminated throughout Four Seasons properties worldwide. Biodegradable paper straws are offered as an alternative.
Four Seasons Resort Orlando supports numerous worthy charitable causes in the form of in-kind donations for silent and live auctions, and event support. The resort’s restaurants, Capa and Ravello, have regularly supported local community events including the Windermere Wine & Dine and the Taste of Windermere, each benefitting local charities, as well as the American Cancer Society’s annual Cattle Baron’s Ball event. Each year, the resort supports the Spring Soiree event for Runway to Hope, benefiting children and families affected by pediatric cancer. This event is the single largest fundraising event in the Orlando area, typically raising more than USD 1 million in an evening. Numerous leaders serve on local boards and committees, including representation by both Public Relations and Catering on the Central Florida Women’s League, a non-profit organization that provides fundraising for Central Florida charities. In addition, over the years, the resort has provided volunteer hours for numerous charitable events and organizations, including the Leukemia & Lymphoma Light the Night Walk event, Give Kids the World, and many others.
