The Ritz-Carlton Spa Orlando, Grande Lakes

Orlando's home for tropical tranquility
From citrus body polishes to orange-inspired manicures and pedicures, Florida’s famous fruit is the basis for many of the treatments at the 40,000-square-foot Ritz-Carlton Spa, Orlando, Grande Lakes, which also has a lap pool, meditation room, fitness center and salon. 

Bindi, Thai and shiatsu massage are offered along with Shirodhara and Javanese Lulur rituals. Kids and teens have their own menu, including treatments such as the Ritz Kids fizzing manicure and pedicure or kids massage. Fitness consultations and salon services are also available.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • The Grand Lakes spa has its own Spa Café, where you can enjoy a healthy breakfast, lunch or snacks during your visit. You’ll have plenty of options, but we recommend trying the vitale flat bread with prosciutto, semi-dried tomato, asiago cheese and herbs, or the blue crab salad with crab and asparagus, herb cheese and champagne vinaigrette.
  • Adults aren’t the only ones who can enjoy being pampered at this family-friendly retreat. Kids and young adults aged 2 to 17 are invited to visit the spa and enjoy one of the four treatments on the Kids and Teen Spa menu. 
  • A no cell phone policy in place to respect the comfort of your fellow guests and to help create a calm, peaceful ambience free of everyday distractions, it’s also there to help ensure you have plenty of time to focus on the experience and to enjoy the facilities without checking your voicemail, sending a quick text message or catching up on emails.
Things to Know
  • Spa Café is open Sunday to Thursday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and stays open one hour later on Fridays and Saturdays.
  • Kids aged 5 to 12 years old can also go to The Ritz Kids Club while you enjoy your spa visit. Activities here include splashing around in the pool with toys, running relay races, participating in video game challenges, going for sunset bike rides and even doing some pastry decorating.
  • Note that you must accompany your kids for the whole treatment, and that only kids aged 16 and up are given access to the spa’s pool and recreation facilities. 
  • Everything from street clothes to formal wear are perfectly acceptable attire. Once you arrive, you’ll be given a robe and a pair of slippers to change into, and can stow your clothing and personal items in one of the lockers conveniently provided to all guests.
  • Consider leaving your designer handbags or expensive jewelry in your guest room or at home, however, since the staff asks not to store valuables anywhere on the premises.
The Treatments
  • To fully relax the body and the mind, try the Energy Balancing Treatment. This completely customized service includes a guided meditation, chakra balancing and reiki therapy all accompanied by the blissful scents of essential oils.

  • For a romantic experience, enhance your couples massage with a sensual soak afterward in a private hydrotherapy tub. Chocolate-covered strawberries and flutes of champagne add to the ambiance.

  • After the Farm Fresh Body Glow, you will not only feel amazing, but your skin will look supple and youthful. Exfoliate with a seasonal scrub and rinse off in the warmth of a seven-head Vichy shower before enjoying a scalp treatment and luxurious heated lotion application that wraps up the relaxing, head-to-toe experience.
The Facilities
  • Make sure to arrive before your service to fully enjoy the saunas, lounges, steam rooms and a whirlpool that will certainly enhance the experience.

  • Registered spa guests also have access to the 24-hour fitness center on property that provides a wide range of free weights, strength and cardio machines. Or try one of the classes (yoga, barre or cycling) before rewarding hard-worked muscles with a massage.

  • Continue treating your body by stopping in for a healthy bite at the spa café Vitale. Enjoy a flavorful salad, smoothie or fresh-squeezed juice while sitting outside overlooking the pool or inside the well-lit sunroom.
