If you’ve been considering a Walt Disney World honeymoon, there’s a private oasis that makes for the most romantic hotel stay, a best-kept secret located inside the resort’s property gates. The magical Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort is tucked away in the Golden Oak residential community at Walt Disney World, and the incredibly luxe hotel is just a 10-minute drive from the Magic Kingdom and brings Four Seasons’ world-class service—and stunning hotel design—to the house of mouse.
A favourite getaway for the celebrity set (Paul McCartney, Mariah Carey and model Lily Aldridge have slept here), the Four Seasons Orlando is set on a 27-acre property. The resort has 443 guest rooms (68 are suites) with the premiere ones boasting views of the community and surrounding forest, lakefront and golf course or the Magic Kingdom (you can see fireworks every night from your balcony if you have a park view!)
To indulge the kid in you, take a trip down the resort’s lazy river and waterslides before enjoying the quiet and sexy chicness of the adults-only pool. Another equally sensual spot pour deux is the resort’s incredible spa, which includes four couple’s suites and two couple’s spa bungalows. For a unique treatment try the exclusive Sticks and Stones massage, which uses smooth basalt stones and birch sticks to soothe away any wedding stress. Another cool service the spa recently launched is the Vibrational Sound Therapy, a 50-minute restorative treatment that’s all about good vibes and mental harmony which is achieved through sounds via custom Himalayan singing bowls placed on and around the body.
For foodies, the Four Seasons is a particular delight. At Ravello, executive chef Fabrizio Schenardi brings a taste of Italy to Florida—the fresh pastas and pizzas are standout dishes. Capa, the contemporary Spanish steakhouse on the hotel’s 17th floor, has a stunning terrace for romantic dining al fresco. For some added pixie dust during your stay, Ravello also plays host to a “Goofy and Pals” breakfast—you never know what very famous Disney faces you will see there.
Not only is it the perfect honeymoon spot, Four Seasons Orlando is a stunning wedding venue. From opulent, grand ballrooms to intimate lakeside venues (there are two that can house up to 20 people), there’s a perfect spot to suit every style of wedding.
