Construction has started on The Retreat, a massive amenity village located in Sunterra, a master-planned community in Katy, TX.

The Retreat will feature a resort-style pool with a water slide, lazy river, splash pad and more. A large clubhouse — featuring a fitness center, meeting rooms and event space — will overlook the amenity village, which will cost an estimated $12 million.

“The Retreat will provide a fun, safe environment for friends anf family to relax and enjoy time together,” said John Brian, Regional President of Starwood Land, developer of Sunterra.

Other features of The Retreat include tennis courts, a soccer field and a multi-use courtyard with an area for outdoor games. An event lawn, outdoor fitness lawn, shade structures and a playground for all ages complete the area.

“The Retreat has been designed for both active and passive recreation — there is something for everyone,” Brian said. “More than 600 families have chosen to make Sunterra their new home in 2023.”

The amenity village, designed by KGA DeForest Design, is planned to open late 2024. It will be one of two amenity villages planned for Sunterra. The Retreat is a complementary amenity to the Sol Club, an additional amenity village within Sunterra that will feature a Crystal Lagoons® amenity. The Sol Club is currently planned to open in 2025 and will cost approximately $21 million.

Sunterra was ranked as Houston’s top-selling master-planned community in 2022, per a report published by Robert Charles Lesser & Co. (RCLCO) and continues to be the number one selling community in Houston in 2023. Twenty-three builders offer homes in the 2,303-acre master-planned community, which is planned for approximately 7,000 homes. Homes in Sunterra are priced from the $300,000s to the $800,000s.
