Poolside Paradise and Pampering Spa
Unwind by the poolside, where guests can enjoy a variety of mixologist-crafted cocktails, delivered straight to their lounge chair. Whether you’re lounging at the adult pool or joining in on the fun at the all-inclusive pool, refreshing libations are never far away. Its a good thing you don’t have to leave the grounds because one drink is not enough!

Spa and Wellness Facilities: Relax and rejuvenate at the 18-room Spa at Four Seasons, where guests can indulge in luxurious treatments and unwind in state-of-the-art relaxation lounges.  Our favorite, aside from the incredible massage treatments – the multi-faceted showere that gives you a taste of different invigorating showers from the toprical regions to the arctic. Definitely recommend indulging yourself at the spa! Our hour flew by too quickly, and we found ourselves yearning for more the moment our treatment concluded.

Explorer Island Water Park: Dive into fun at the resort’s private water park, featuring thrilling water slides, lazy rivers, and interactive splash zones for the whole family to enjoy.

Retail Therapy and Exceptional Service
Explore the resort’s boutique shops, offering trendy clothing and unique finds that elevate your staycation experience. From designer labels to one-of-a-kind treasures, you’ll discover the perfect souvenir to commemorate your time at the Four Seasons Orlando.

Championship Golf Course: While we didn’t experience the golf course, for those golf enthusiasts – you can Tee off on the Tom Fazio-designed 18-hole championship golf course, surrounded by stunning natural landscapes and breathtaking views.

 Michelin Dining Culinary Delights:  Indulge your palate in a Gastronomic Journey at the resort’s array of restaurants, each offering its own unique culinary experience. From Italian delicacies to inventive dishes, there’s something to tantalize every taste bud.

Capa Steakhouse
At Capa, guests are treated to a rooftop dining experience overlooking beautiful Orlando, with a nightly fireworks show adding to the ambiance. Savor the mouthwatering pork belly and robust steak, perfectly paired with sides like corn polenta and garlic mashed potatoes. Don’t miss the Spaniard tomato bread, a savory delight that complements the rich flavors of the menu. Our experience here was inpeccable – and our server, wayne was top notch  – along with all of their staff!  Well deserving of their Michelin Star!

Capa recently received recognition from the Embassy of Spain with the prestigious “Restaurants from Spain” certification. This certification recognizes quality, authentic restaurants in the US that represent traditional Spanish menu items and incorporate authentic products imported from Spain. The certification committee found that Capa’s menu comprises 48 percent Spanish dishes, with descriptions in both Spanish and English. Offerings include Spanish Iberico ham, charcuterie, Marcona almonds, sherry vinegar, Pimentón de la Vera smoked paprika, and Spanish cheeses. Additionally, Capa carries a wine list with nearly 60 percent of wines from Spain, as well as some Spanish liqueurs. The presence of several Spanish-speaking team members, another important criterion for certification, further qualified the restaurant.

At Ravello, immerse yourself in the flavors of Italy with an array of pasta, pizzas, and seafood delights. Indulge in the delectable swordfish, expertly prepared and bursting with flavor. While dining at Ravello, their onsite sommelier was so knowledge in helping us choose the perfect wine to complement our meal – making our experience something unforgettable!

Ravello is the Resort’s modern Italian restaurant, serving pizza, bread and pasta made entirely from scratch, and numerous Italian specialties. Guests love Schenardi’s housemade limoncello and charcuterie, and the delicious fresh pasta. In June 2022, Ravello received a recommendation in the first Michelin Guide for Miami, Orlando and Tampa, while sister restaurant, Capa, on the Resort’s 17th floor, is rated one Michelin star.
