This may have been our favorite day so far. By far the most relaxing. We spent the entire day at the Spa at the Ritz Carlton Grande Lakes. This spa is ENORMOUS! It’s 40,000 square feet, 3 stories and has its own private pool area just for spa guests! We loved every treatment that we got. The staff was so wonderful and SO good at what they do (people were telling us they drive all the way up from Miami just for these specific spa therapists). The Ritz has many treatments that only they do and no one else. Stacey got an eco rooftop hammock massage. Basically you are put in a hammock on top of a green sustainable rooftop with fresh herbs surrounding you and given a massage from underneath the hammock. Sound like heaven? It is. I got an ashiatsu massage which means someone stood on my back and massaged me with his feet. It was like getting my muscles gently ironed out. Both of these were our favorite massages we had ever had.
There’s just so much to do here. We had morning yoga and were greeted with fresh fruit and yogurt afterwards. We got facials, manicures, pedicures (ask Kyle about his toenails) and were just treated like royalty all day. If you can’t afford an entire day of treatments, we would suggest getting a “Martini Manicure” and then spending the rest of the day in the pool or steam room. At the Ritz Carlton Spa, you take every care, worry, ache or pain that you have and leave it at the door, because once you step inside you’re in paradise.
