The Waldorf Astoria Orlando at Bonnet Creek, located within Walt Disney World, has added a Himalayan Salt Room at the resort spa. According to the hotel, the Waldorf Astoria Orlando Spa is the first full-service resort spa in Florida to offer this service.
The new salt room simulates the environment of a "salt cave," lined with Himalayan sea salt bricks that release negative ions to promote deep relaxation. Himalayan sea salt is known in the spa industry to help alleviate a variety of ailments, including allergies, colds, eczema and even jet lag.
Guests can reserve the salt room for a 30-minute ($45) or 60-minute ($90) session. Each session also includes use of the spa facilities, including the Jacuzzi tub and steam room. Two new packages that include Himalayan sea salt therapy include the Himalayan Salt Escape ($218), which includes one hour in the salt room and a 50-minute massage, and the Healing Indulgence package ($338), which includes one hour in the salt room and an 80-minute massage.
