The Renaissance World Golf Village Resort and Beach Club in Jacksonville/St. Augustine, Florida is now offering an “American Hero Rate” to active and retired members of the U.S. military, to U.S. firefighters, and to U.S. police officers. This enables these American heroes to take in charming and historic St. Augustine, visit pristine Atlantic beaches (including a private beach club), take advantage of great shopping at nearby outlet malls, and experience the many other offerings at the resort and in Northeast Florida.
The “American Hero Rate” starts at just $109 per room, per night. In addition to deluxe accommodations for two, the special rate also includes complimentary breakfast-for-two in the resort’s Villagio Italian Grille restaurant. The offer is valid through December 31, 2012, based on availability. Blackout dates may apply.
“Our nation’s military personnel, law enforcement officers and firefighters make so many sacrifices, for which we’re truly grateful, and we’re offering this special rate so that they can enjoy a relaxing getaway at a beautifully remodeled resort, with so many recreational options,” said Jeffrey Oliasami, general manager of the AAA Four-Diamond resort.
To take advantage of the special rate, members of the U.S. military, U.S. firefighters and U.S. police officers simply need to ask for the special rate upon booking, and then show their appropriate supporting ID upon check-in.

Those taking advantage of the special rate also will enjoy privileges at the exclusive Serenata Beach Club, which features a breathtaking setting overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, as guests of the resort now enjoy privileges at the private beach club. At Serenata you will be able to enjoy an oceanfront clubhouse; an adult pool with dedicated lap lanes; a pool with a cascading 12-foot waterfall; another pool with water features; a Mediterranean-inspired dining room with a view of the Atlantic; an outdoor bar; a fully-equipped fitness center; and optional scheduled activities.

Located within the lush 6,300-acre World Golf Village, The Renaissance World Golf Village Resort completed many enhancements in 2011, which included the opening of Villagio; the opening of The Resort Shop, which serves Starbucks coffees and breakfast fare, sandwiches, salads, and desserts, and an array of gifts and souvenirs; the expansion of its outdoor event and recreational space La Terrazza; and the expansion of its pool deck with new seating areas.
These enhancements follow a $10 million resort-wide renovation that was completed in 2008, which included the complete remodeling of guest rooms and suites, a dramatically-renovated lobby, newly-remodeled guest room corridors, and an expanded fitness center with state-of-the-art equipment.
Recreational options at the resort include two championship golf courses (Slammer & Squire and King & Bear). Guests also have access to four additional golf courses within 15 minutes of the resort, for a total of 108 holes of golf. Additionally, the resort features a sauna, pool, hot tub, and full-service concierge.

In addition, guests can take golf lessons at the renowned PGA TOUR Golf Academy.
To make it easy for its guests to enjoy the area, the resort provides a complimentary shuttle for individual guests (based on availability) to and from historic downtown St. Augustine. This enables guests to easily visit such sites in St. Augustine, which was founded in 1565, as the historic Castillo de San Marcos fort, The Fountain of Youth, and shopping on the charming, brick-paved St. George Street. Additional options in downtown St. Augustine include The Oldest Wooden Schoolhouse, and a variety of water activities.
