Spa Time at the OMNI
By: Cathleen K. Bode
> What better way to spend a weekend with your best friend than checking- in at the Omni Orlando Resort, getting pampered from head to toe at the spa, relaxing in a cabana by the pool, sipping Champagne, nibbling on sinful desserts and catching up on all that ‘girly gossip’? ... absolutely nothing!
Getting away for a weekend with a best friend can be just what the doctor ordered. No stress getting there either, since it’s only a 20-30 minute drive to the beautiful Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate from downtown Orlando, recognized by Conde’ Nast Traveler as one of the top 125 golf resorts in the world.
Through the majestic gates and just past the palm-tree lined boulevard, the $175 million Mediterranean-style resort encompasses 1,200 acres of natural wetlands and is the centerpiece of the ChampionsGate community.
The resort offers luxury accommodations including 720 rooms and suites, two championship Greg Norman-designed golf courses, world headquarters of the David Leadbetter Golf Academy, a signature Mokara Spa, two heated outdoor pools and an 850-foot lazy river where you can leave your cares behind and gently float around on an inner tube. Everything is designed for your relaxation.
Talk about relaxation… In my opinion, nothing is more magical than a wonderful firm massage and a gentle facial. The resort recently announced the addition of Mokara Spa, replacing the The Spa at Omni Orlando, offering a tranquil retreat and the signature treatments and products of the highly acclaimed spa brand. Mokara entices guests to discover a new level of relaxation with premium spa treatments and professional salon services in a serene and sophisticated environment. Guests unwind in the Mokara experience, offering its signature services that combine proven techniques with the latest spa supplements to help relax the body, restore the mind and soothe the senses. The treatment combines a variety of massage techniques and specialty oils designed to help guests re-energize, detoxify and simply relax. A customized, multi-step facial, Mokara’s signature facial, incorporates deep cleansing, exfoliation, aromatic steam, massage and a nutrient-rich mask, which will leave your skin well hydrated and oh so soft!
The resort also features five diverse dining experiences from sushi and sake at ZEN to the Italian herb garden and brick oven flatbreads at Trevi’s. So you and your best friend can eat, drink and gossip the night away.
With the “do-it-all, see it all” mentality in Orlando, Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate offers a remedy for vacation fatigue and “tourist overdose” – relaxation <
