Visitors to Orlando often forget that vacations here aren’t merely about theme parks, but relaxation as well. And between theme park adventures and hours of sightseeing in Orlando, vacationers can enjoy some wonderfully indulgent “me” time at one of the city’s luxurious and pampering spas. Ranging from intimate to expansive, classic to nontraditional, European to Balinese, there’s a spa for every taste in Orlando – and each is ready to help you find solace and serenity in the midst of whatever excitement you have planned during your trip.
Looking for a foreign escape without actually having to leave the country? Then head to the Mandara Spa at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel, a Balinese themed spa complete with its own meditation garden and “Meru” temple. Guests will soak in warm colors, rich wood accents, and exotic décor while they get pampered with a variety of beautifying and relaxing spa treatments at this tranquil retreat. You’ll feel all your stress drift away when you enjoy the spa’s specialty, a Balinese Massage, which uses a combination of aromatherapy, acupressure, pressure point, and traditional Balinese massage techniques.
If you’re hankering for something a little closer to home, then look no further than the Spa at Reunion Resort, which prides itself on offering guests the comforts of home – in an actual house! Remodeled from a former model home, this intimate and cozy spa offers a spa concierge to every guest, who ensures that you have the most relaxing stay possible. And though the setting might be quaint and homey, don’t be fooled – the treatments are just as top-notch as the most expensive spa’s, and among them is a particularly luxurious Caviar Facial that will have you feeling like royalty.
But perhaps ultra-lavish, extra-refined spas are more your style, and if that’s the case, visit the Canyon Ranch Spa at the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center. Winner of the 2008 Mobil Four Star Award, this beautiful and well-equipped facility offers everything you need to refresh and rejuvenate your spirit, from a steam and sauna room to a Tea Relaxation Room.
Just as pampering and relaxing as the facilities of the Canyon Ranch Spa are its extensive and varied treatments, especially the signature service “Euphoria.” During this 100-minute massage and body treatment, guests receive a scalp massage, warm botanical body mask, and a revitalizing bath and full-body massage. If that doesn’t provide you with a sense of euphoria, nothing will!
