Jan 14 Four Seasons Resort Orlando Top Suites
Luxury in Orlando? I know this concept is hard for some to fathom, but it’s certainly the reason I decided to write my book “The Luxury Guide to Walt Disney World Resort”. However, I never really imagined there would be accommodations quite so luxurious as what can be found at the Four Seasons Orlando Resort, in particular, the ultimate in luxury, a suite on its covetable 16th floor. This is serious splurge territory!
The one-bedroom Presidential Suite with 2,750 square feet connects to four bedrooms including one Grand Suite. Cream chenille and beige contemporary furnishings and walnut hardwood flooring abounds throughout the suite’s massive great room. Under vaulted ceilings are two living areas, a dining area, and two wall-mounted gas fireplaces. In one living area is a sectional sofa and easy chair centered round a leather coffee table. Centered in the room is an Asian-style area rug topped with six occasional chairs and a sofa with peach accents and double glass coffee tables. The dining area holds a dark wood table seating eight in cream-colored leather chairs and the adjoining bar has two Sub-Zero wine coolers. A Bose sound system and motorized drapery add to the luxury. An office is just off the dining room as well as a service kitchen with a small oven, undercounter refrigerators, sink, and Miele coffee machine. Surrounding the entire great room is an 800 square-foot terrace with plenty of seating, a dining table, and potted palms. Views are of Spaceship Earth, the golf course, the pools, and miles of the surrounding area.
The Presidential Suite’s master bedroom has a silver accent wall with crystal sconces, king bed facing outward to the view, two soft gray chenille easy chairs with ottoman, and shimmery drapery studded with crystals. And best of all is the media screen and projector, concealed in the ceiling, dropping down electronically for viewing.
The master bath sparkles with a tile and glass mosaic flooring, freestanding tub in front of a picture window overlooking the bedroom’s private balcony, two vanities, each with a slanted sink basin built into white marble, in-mirror TVs, massive dual head marble shower, and separate toilet area. Separating the bath and the bedroom is a marvelous closet room with leather seating, tons of drawer and hanging space, and a large mirrored vanity. While the Presidential Suite is number 1601, it connects off the entry hall to room numbers 1608 and 1610 to form a 3-bedroom suite with a single entry; both guestrooms are a standard size, one with an accessible bath. There is also a half bath off the main entry hall with Toto Washlet.
The Royal Suite offers a more masculine feel with a rich taupe and truffle palette complete with plenty of shimmering accents in its 3,300 square feet. The suite’s entry, off which you’ll find a half bath, features an espresso granite and French blue limestone patterned floor with white Venetian plastered walls. Two captivating crystal chandeliers survey the great room below, flanked by two gas fireplaces surrounded in granite and black mosaic glass. Very reminiscent in size and amenities as the Presidential, here are two living areas and a dining area seating ten. Sectional rugs in taupe and cream tones warm up the espresso marble flooring, and the ice blue silk drapery adds a shining touch. There is also a separate office with sofa and desk. The big bonus is a media room with giant-size screen, sound-absorbing metal panels, oversized sectional sofa, silk and wool hand-knotted carpeting, and easy chair.
The master bedroom and bath offers the same layout as the Presidential but with silver and black tones with an accent wall of ebony and starburst-patterned crystal.
The suite’s terrace at 1,000 square feet lends itself to the perfect impromptu cocktail party, offering an intoxicating view of the Magic Kingdom® Park fireworks, golf course, and resort pools from the 8-person outdoor dining table and a slew of sofas and chairs. The Royal Suite connects to enough bedrooms, two of which are Grand Suites, to create a 9-bedroom penthouse residence if so desired.
Now if you really to experience the ultimate resort experience go ahead plan for a top floor buy out, perfect for extended families and friends. This would include the nine-bedroom Royal Suite with three living rooms, the four-bedroom Presidential Suite and eight separate guest rooms beyond these suites. Who would have thought Orlando could ever be this luxurious?
