    Default Streamsong Resort

    We're just back from a 2-day trip to try out the Streamsong Resort, which is in, well, Nowhere, Florida. Never heard of it? Neither had we until recently. But this is definitely going to be on our radar in future for a truly terrific get-away-from-it-all option.



    Streamsong is 30 miles south of Lakeland, which in turn is mid-way between Tampa and Orlando. The resort features 2 championship quality golf courses (adding a third later this year), plus a blissful spa, 5 restaurants, a superb pool area and a wealth of activities, including bass fishing, archery and trap shooting. The rooms are superb, the service is excellent and all the food that we tried (in 3 of the restaurants - we'll have to go back for the other 2!) was delicious, especially the Italian specialities of SottoTerra. It also has a great back-story as a forming mining site that has been beautifully restored to nature, and with its wildlife (you can spot gators cruising around the main lake from your room!).

    We'll be writing it up for the Telegraph in due course, but also wanted to highlight it here for those who want to see a bit more of the 'real' Florida. It's not a cheap place to stay, but rates can be as low as $169/night in off-peak periods, and that would be an absolute bargain.

    Looks very nice too, especially for golfers.

    I get a bit of a 60's futuristic vibe from the look of it.

    Absolutely, Seth. Do you remember Marineville in Stingray? Well, this is it, as a hotel!!

    And yes, TF, it is brilliant for golfers, but it's actually too good just for them!

    Just make the tower a bit smaller, put a bar in it, and add a lake with some gators at the front
