With a 40,000-square-foot, 40-treatment room spa, Greg Norman-designed 18-hole golf course, 11 impressive dining options (including the award-winning fusion eatery Norman’s) and a serene, palm tree-lined pool with private cabanas (each complete with its own personal concierge), The Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes is a decidedly grown-up getaway in notoriously “family-friendly” central Florida.
Of course, this luxe resort also makes the ultimate landing pad for a trip with the little ones—thanks to its close proximity to the area’s major attractions and theme parks, including Walt Disney World Resort and Universal Studios Florida, not to mention its extensive Ritz Kids program, which offers a host of supervised activities from swimming and pool games to outdoor excursions and sports.
Should your entire brood be in tow, the 3,804-square-foot Royal Suite is Ritz-Carlton’s largest accommodation in the US, offering plush décor, three bedrooms (with the option of adding a fourth guest room for a total of 4,293 square feet) and gorgeous lakefront and golf course views, seen from seven private balconies ($12,000 a night).
