The Spa Treatment at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando

    By Ginger Harris

    A check in at the Ritz-Carlton Grande Lakes in Orlando just begs for a trip to the spa to go along with it. And that’s exactly what I did on my recent trip to Orlando.

    I scheduled a much-needed manicure and pedicure at the spa. And what a divine experience it was. Walking in, the scent of the spa’s signature candles and beautiful bouquets of pink roses permeated the air.

    With a spa robe, glass of bubbly and my choice of polish (OPI or SpaRitual) , I soon was deep in the throes of an epic manicure and pedicure. Yummy lotions, a refreshing footbath and perfectly polished nails made for a blissful afternoon.

    Afterward, I hit Tranquility spa to score some of the products used during my service. The shop, which is ripe with beauty pickings, is located just across from the spa concierge. Inside, you’ll find products that pamper from head to toe.

    Looking for a great moisturizer?Check out FarmHouse Fresh Fluffy Bunny Shea Butter or one of my personal favorites, Lollia. You’ll also find products from Paddywax, skincare from Dr. Dennis Gross, Eminence, Kenipp and, for him, Jack Black.

    If you’re in the market for a bubble bath back at your hotel room, opt for Feeling Smitten Bath Wash in delicious scents that sound good enough to eat.

    Or, if you need to upgrade your makeup bag, check out the complete line of Jane Iredale makeup products.

    I promise you’ll find something that makes you feel beautiful.
