Tao Group Hospitality has confirmed plans to debut its first Tao-branded resort in Orlando, US, promising a destination to relax and recharge.

The group will build Tao Hotel Orlando in partnership with Unicorp National Developments.

Tao Group’s partner Rockwell Group has been roped in to design the facility, which is expected to include upscale features similar to the group’s other branded locations.

The upcoming property, which is likely to open in 2025, will comprise a Tao Asian Bistro, rooftop experience, meeting area, a fitness centre among other facilities.

Further, the new hotel will be located close to O-Town West, a 350-acre mixed-use luxury community development in Southwest Orange County.

Tao Group Hospitality co-CEO Noah Tepperberg said: “A hotel was the natural evolution for us. We’ve had the honour of working with some of the world’s top hotel developers, and we’re really excited to create a property that truly reflects the Tao lifestyle.

“The Tao Group Hospitality clientele has evolved with us over the years and is looking for something that can provide them with more than just a few hours of fun at one of our locations.

“Boasting over 40 million visitors annually, Orlando is the perfect place for our first branded resort property.

“More than just culinary and nightlife, Tao is a lifestyle, and this large-scale venture provides the ultimate opportunity to bring that experience to life.”

Tao Group Hospitality has been active in the entertainment and culinary industry for over 20 years. The group runs nearly 70 branded locations in over 20 markets across the globe.

The group plans to open nine branded locations this year and ten more in 2023.
