With the limitations of the past year, for many, health and wellness unfortunately took a backseat. Now, with a new year, for many it’s time to bring wellness and beauty back to the forefront. With a renewed focus on the importance self-care has not only to one’s physical being, but also to one’s mental wellbeing, Derek Hofmann, Senior Director of Spa at The Spa at Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort, notes that Spa patrons are prioritising their health and wellness now more than ever.
“I think 2020 has truly reinforced just how important self-care is, not only to our physical health, but also our mental health,” says Hofmann. “When we care for our bodies, the effect is so much greater to our overall wellness. This year, many of our guests have come to realise just how essential making the time for regular spa treatments truly is.”
The Spa at Four Seasons is able to support those with New Year resolutions related to health, beauty and fitness, with its robust offerings for facial, body, skin, hair and nail care. The Spa also offers Vitality Drip therapies in conjunction with Dr. Olga Ivanov.
New for the winter season is the Reset & Recover Package – aimed at helping one recover from 2020 and reset for the new year. The package includes:
- 50-minute spa treatment; choice of the Classic Massage, Active Enzyme Facial, Mindful Matcha Body Scrub, or Classic Manicure and Pedicure
- Choice of one Vitality Drip treatment
- One 50-minute personal training session
- Freshly squeezed juice or smoothie from Ravello’s juice bar
This package is USD 500 per person, or USD 1,000 per couple, for those who would like to “reset” together in one of The Spa’s couple’s suites.
Additional treatments can be added on, for the ultimate Spa day. The Reset & Recover Package is available to book through March 12, 2021.*

Those seeking to continue their active, fit lifestyle will revel in golf, tennis, a fitness centre with on-demand classes, healthy culinary options, and much more. Orlando is known as the theme park capital of the world, however, in addition to the thrilling attractions and dazzling entertainment, the destination is truly a sports and recreation haven.
“Many people often put health and fitness on the backburner during their Orlando vacation, when really, it can be fully integrated,” says Thomas Steinhauer, Regional Vice President and General Manager of Four Seasons Resort Orlando. “For guests who want to be consistent with their healthy lifestyle while on vacation, the Resort makes it easy, as truly there is something offered for all ages and interests to enjoy.”
Many guests who visit Four Seasons spend their time enjoying the magic of Walt Disney World Resort as well as the on-site resort amenities at Four Seasons Resort Orlando.
