5 Ways To Pamper Yourself While In Orlando


When talking about the benefits of our Orlando vacation rentals, and all the reasons why we’re the best place to plan a getaway in the sunshine state, we often focus on all that our vacation home rentals can offer to your family or large groups who might want to have fun together.

But staying in an Orlando vacation rental isn’t always about taking the kids to Disney World or hosting a family reunion with relatives that you haven’t seen in years. Sometimes you just need to get away from it all, to pamper yourself and restore a little bit of the vim and vigor that your hectic life has sapped away.

That’s why the team at VacationPoolHomes.com has decided to put together a list of all the ways that you can pamper yourself when you book an Orlando vacation rental.

The luxury starts by choosing one of our lovely villas, homes, or condos rather than a hotel. Why be boxed into a tiny room, one of hundreds that are stacked on top of each other in the Orlando area, when you could experience one of our 5 bedroom homes with multiple bathrooms, living areas, outdoor dining areas, and yes, even your very own private pool?

Just being able to create some privacy for yourself, choosing to cook meals (or order takeout!), do your laundry (or wear your bathing suit the whole time!), or even just binge watch your favorite Netflix show on the large screen TVs included in every Orlando vacation home, can sometimes be pampering enough! But if you’re seeking a truly self-indulgent vacation, follow these tips for pampering yourself in style.

1. Visit One Of The Disney Senses Spas

That’s right, Disney has “attractions” for adults as well! The Disney Senses Spas, located on property at Grand Floridian or Saratoga Springs, are an amazing opportunity to nurture your senses and experience premium spa treatments. The full-service spa and health club is set in the Victorian Era (because it wouldn’t be Disney without the theatrics) and offers massages, body treatments, a full menu of facials, manicures, and more. Spending an afternoon in one of these spas is the best way to prepare for the next step of your pampering journey…

2. Plan A Luxurious Dinner Or Meal

Once you’ve been massaged, cleansed, moisturized, and polished, you shouldn’t waste all that wonderful relaxation by simply going back to your Orlando vacation rental. Take yourself out for a night on the town that starts with a luxurious dinner. The Orlando area is home to many top tier restaurants that would be the perfect way to show off your glowing skin and perfect nails.

May we suggest reserving a table for two at Capa, the 17th-floor rooftop steakhouse at the resort? Or perhaps The Flying Fish Café which offers a five-course prix-fixe chef’s tasting wine dinner? If your significant other prefers beer to wine, you might want to grab a table at the nearby Big River Grille & Brewing Works, which just so happens to be the only working brewpub at Walt Disney World Resort, hosts Brews & Bites, a brew and food pairing experience. But since you wisely booked an Orlando vacation rental instead of staying on resort, why limit yourself to these options? There are literally dozens of romantic, luxurious restaurants in Orlando that will treat you to mouthwatering food and stunning ambiance.

3. Go Shopping

Maybe the way that you truly like to indulge is with some good, old fashioned retail therapy. In that case, may we suggest treating yourself to a full day at the Orlando International Premium Outlets? You’ll be able to browse all the best brands at prices you’ve never seen before! There’s also the Mall at Millenia, The Florida Mall, Lake Buena Vista Factory Stores, and Disney Springs at Walt Disney World. Just make sure you have enough luggage to bring your purchases back home!

4. Swim Under The Stars

Feeling a little introverted? That’s no problem at all. Our Orlando vacation rentals offer unparalleled privacy while also ensuring that you’re never more than a few minutes away from your favorite amenities. It’s written right there in our name–we specialize in vacation homes that have their own pool! So if you feel like putting on some jazz music and taking a dip after the sun has already gone to bed, you can do so! The warm Florida sun will have warmed the water so completely during the day that you won’t have to worry about catching a chill.

5. Get Cultured

Pampering yourself isn’t only about eating delicious meals, getting manicures, and midnight swims, however. Sometimes the most luxurious experiences are those that stimulate your mind as well as your senses. That’s why we highly recommend making some time for a visit to one of Orlando’s many amazing art galleries or museums. There’s the The Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art, home to an amazing collection of Tiffany stained glass, the Orlando Science Center, The Holy Land Experience, The Mennello Museum of American Art, and the Wycliffe Discovery Center.
