There are things you expect from a family resort near Disney World, and there are things you expect from a Ritz-Carlton Resort. Making these two worlds seamlessly coexist is The Ritz-Carlton, Grande Lakes. It is comfortable and very family friendly without ever losing what you have come to expect from Ritz-Carlton.
Architecturally inspired by the grand palazzos of Italy, the property has 582 guest rooms with garden, lake or golf course views. For ease and convenience, be sure to book one of the 56 Club Level rooms providing access to breakfast, light snakes, hors d'oeuvres, beverages and sweets included in the room rate. A dedicated concierge and computer station on the Club Level, provide a level of service and convenience that make it easy to take care of any last minute business, or to plan activities during the stay.
The guest rooms offer a private balcony and are nicely appointed with marble baths, contemporary decor, terry cloth robes and twice-daily maid service.
While the resort is convenient to all of Orlando's attractions, there are plenty of activities on-site and there is no need to leave the property. From the Greg Norman-designed golf course, planned children's activities, to a world-class spa, there is plenty to fill the day. An unique feature of the Golf Club includes the Caddie Concierge Program that pairs each golf group with a professional attendant to help with course navigation, hole descriptions, yardage stats, etc.
To keep the kids occupied, reserve a spot at The Ritz Kids Club providing supervised activities for kids 5 -12, with a variety of fun activities including fish feeding, lady bug release, butterfly gardens, bocce ball court, playgrounds, etc.
For the nature lovers, explore the eco-tour on Shingle Creek, or sign-up for guided kayaking on Grand Lake. Bird watchers must experience the guided bird watching tour on the over 300 acres of natural surroundings.
No stay would be complete without a pampering spa treatment at The Ritz-Carlton Spa.

Arrive for the treatment early to relax in the co-ed lounge, sauna, steam room and whirlpool. Be sure to have lunch or a snack in the café.
