Waldorf Astoria Orlando spa opens Himalayan salt room

The new Himalayan salt room at the Waldorf Astoria Orlando Spa.

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.
