For over 50 years, The Abbey Resort and Avani Spa has offered high-end resort amenities on 90 acres of beautifully manicured grounds in Fontana, Wisconsin. A quick drive getaway from Chicago, the resort allows organizations to take in the destination resort feel without the hassle of destination travel on Lake Geneva’s only full-service resort.

The Abbey Resort has newly renovated guest rooms and some 40,000 square feet of indoor-outdoor meeting space. From facilitating team-building activities or brainstorming in a sunlit room, to cruising on the water for dinner and hosting an awards banquet in a windowed pavilion, the Abbey overs a memorable backdrop for your events. Through Dec. 1, 2023, the resort is offering discounted room rates and a choice of three enhancements:

  • Upgrade premium bar selections with a Maple Bourbon Old Fashioned cocktail using Wisconsin’s own Driftless Glen single-barrel pick spirits at no additional cost.
  • Upgrade up to five guests to the premium Harbor View guest rooms at no additional cost.
  • Drop quoted guest room rate by $5.
  • Take an additional 5% the Encore audiovisual bill.
  • Avani Spa will be your guests’ oasis with a two-for-one pick. One Sunrise Yoga session or mindfulness session for your group along with a discount of 10% on all scheduled massage, salon, or wellness services.
  • Upgrade from a standard menu break service to a homestyle scratch-made biscuit bar or healthy fruit smoothie bar.

The hotel’s recent renovations include entire-room upgrades to 300 guest rooms, all meeting and event spaces, common guest public areas including a full lobby renovation, guest hallways, and other public areas. The recently modernized 35,000-square-foot Avani spa now includes 16 luxury treatment rooms, two new couples’ suites, two salt and infrared relaxation areas, updated spa and salon services menu, steam and sauna rooms, a revamped fitness center, and a large private pool.

In addition, the hotel offers the 240 West restaurant for fresh farm-to-fork dining with stellar harbor views, an indoor temperature-controlled pool with separate children’s wading area, hot tubs, complimentary bicycle and sports equipment rentals, and an on-site marina.
