The Best Advice For an Orlando Getaway – Don’t Skip The Resort Relaxation!

relaxing vacation ideas

Planning a getaway to Orlando? Lucky you! Orlando boasts more excitement per square foot than almost anywhere else in the world!

Before you get too far into your planning though, we have one, hugely helpful, piece of advice:

Choose a resort featuring on-site relaxation and entertainment.

Spending days in a row at Walt Disney World, for example, will leave you with stars in your eyes, yes, but also weary limbs and a craving for a little R&R. Schedule in time to just be at the resort.

Naturally, you’ll want to spend plenty of time exploring Orlando and visiting all the sites, but spending quality time recharging at the resort is what will fuel your energy to do so!

The Grove Resort & Spa is a brand new modern, residential-style resort in Orlando, located on Lake Austin and just minutes from Walt Disney World. The Grove is an excellent example of the type of Orlando resort offering the best of both worlds: on-site relaxation and fun and a convenient location near Orlando’s finest attractions.

Our favorite ways to relax and enjoy the Grove’s on-site offerings are:

Chill Out Lakeside at Lake Austin

relaxing vacation ideasHow many resorts can boast having their own lake? Not many! Lake Austin is an 18-acre all natural, spring-fed lake at The Grove Resort & Spa Orlando. An oasis all on its own, Lake Austin offers plenty in the way of excitement and relaxation.

  • Rent a fishing pole and peacefully await the catch of a largemouth Bass, Crappie, Bluegill, Catfish, or Alligator Gar
  • Gently paddle your way around the scenic lake in one of the 5-seater swan paddle boats
  • Kayak your way around the lake
  • Hop aboard an electric Go-Float 2 seater boat
  • Gather the entire group and set sail on a 7 passenger pontoon boat, which offers guided fishing tours and family lake tours
  • Or, simply stretch out in the sun lakeside and enjoy the luxury of life in Orlando

Escape to The Luxurious Escape Spa

These are simply the side-effects of a wonderful vacation, and all of which can be restored and rejuvenated at the spa. At the Escape Spa at The Grove, you’ll find an array of spa treatments.

What sets Escape Spa apart from others in Orlando is its intimacy and personalization. There are pre-designed treatments and packages, but you are also welcome to design your own to ensure your needs are met. All of the treatments use organic products and ingredients. A few treatments we recommend include:

  • Age-defying facial
  • Apple stem cell mask
  • Hot mineral body boost
  • Frangipani body nectar nourishing wrap
  • Soothing salt massage
  • Poolside mani/pedi

If your nails need a touch-up or re-do at any point, you can also schedule a mani or pedi! Sandal weather means pedicures are needed much more frequently!
