Around Valentine’s Day, or any time of the year for that matter, spending the day together at one of our many luxurious Orlando spas tops our list of best date day experiences. Bliss out by the pool, unwind in a Jacuzzi or eucalyptus-infused steam room, or experience side-by-side massages in a couples’ suite. Yes please!!
Several spa trends are sweeping the nation and finding a home at many of our Orlando spas. Here are a few new experiences to tempt you to have a splurge-worthy spa date sometime soon.
Topping trends this year in the health industry is CBD, the non-psychoactive derivative of cannabis (hemp) that’s said to soothe muscles, reduce chronic pain and bring about a sense of deep calm. Oils can be taken orally but the Waldorf Astoria Orlando Spa chooses to massage the CBD oil directly into the skin during a 50-minute treatment inside its sprawling, two-story, 24,000-square-foot refuge. This massage uses Cannabliss Organic, a full spectrum CBD hemp oil (grown organically in Colorado) infused with a blend of ancient Korean herbs to nurture, ease muscle and joint aches, reduce inflammation and soothe irritated skin. The organic full spectrum hemp oil used in Cannabliss products has a CBD concentration of 87% (most other hemp oils have only a 30% concentration).
While on site, guests can utilize the tea lounge, separate men’s and woman’s wet lounges, tranquility lounge with zero gravity wave loungers and the outdoor pool area.

SALT ROOM THERAPY
Several local spas, including Mokara Spa and The Spa at Shingle Creek, now offer a Himalayan Salt Stone Massage, but the Waldorf Astoria Orlando Spa has recently built their very own salt room. This stunning space, crafted with Himalayan salt bricks, rich wood and a salt stone floor, is the perfect place to chill for thirty minutes while the salt works its magic on your sinuses, respiratory system and skin. This two-person experience is a great add-on to a couple’s massage. Learn more here.
St. Somewhere Spa at Margaritaville Resort Orlando also boasts a rejuvenating salt room.
