The Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes recently announced its $30 million renovation and redesign. The property updates include renovations to guestrooms, the pool and club lounge.

Set to debut in February, the property’s 582 guestrooms will feature nature-inspired design elements, with influences from the property’s 500 acres of lush surroundings. Expect to see soft colors, plush textures and nautical details. Artwork displayed throughout the guestrooms captures the natural movement and stillness of Florida’s water, sand and skies. The rooms boast custom furniture, including upholstered and wooden chairs, a couch and chaise lounge. There is soft, textured, wall-to-wall carpeting throughout the rooms. Bathrooms include a double vanity sink and marble flooring. Guestrooms will also feature added technology elements, including higher-quality internet access and more user-friendly outlet placements.

Indulge in the Seductive Splendor Bora Bora

I had just taken off my sandals, stepping onto the white-sand beach for a late-morning walk to a secluded spot I heard about from a front desk clerk, when I glanced down and saw the time on my phone. It had just turned 11 a.m., which meant it was only 7 am back home, the perfect time to call and say good morning to by husband before he left for work. Not quite ready to head back to my room, I decided I’d test the WiFi signal and made the call as I continued walking toward the shoreline.
