Great Getaways: Lake Nona Wave 

10 Reasons to book a stay at this cutting-edge resort in Orlando.

Not every resort in and around Orlando has a connection to Mickey, Minnie, Chewie or Hermione Granger. Here are 10 great reasons to book a stay at Lake Nona Wave, one of the state’s most innovative hotels:

1. Since its debut in December 2021, the Wave has dazzled with its inspired commitment to technology and wellness in a way that elevates mind, body, soul—and the guest experience. 

2. The seamless approach to technology includes View Smart Windows that employ predictive intelligence to automatically adjust tinting in response to the sun and weather conditions outside. Rooms also have Toto smart toilets and voice-automated controls—but that’s just the beginning. 

3. Five of the rooms—the Well+ech collection—feature innovations connected to health and rest, including the Restorative Bed by Bryte, a science-based sleep experience that optimizes temperature and mattress comfort; and Smart Nora, a sleeping aid that lifts your head when it detects snoring. 

4. Dynamic works of art, colorful décor and vibrant common areas all serve to stir the senses. The creative vibe extends to an outdoor sculpture garden that boasts eight globally renowned sculptures from the private Lewis Collection—including the bronze Charging Bull by Arturo di Modica. 

5. Guests have complimentary access to Lake Nona Performance Club, just a short walk from the resort. The state-of-the-art fitness facility spans some 130,000 square feet has a mind-boggling array of offerings—a 42-foot climbing wall, more than 150 exercise machines with TechnoGym technology, an aquatic center, a cycling studio with cutting-edge spin technology, an indoor track—and dozens of classes, ranging from tai chi and barre to yoga, Zumba and meditation sessions. 

6. The wellness benefits don’t end there. Customers also receive preferred pricing for offerings at the Chopra Mind-Body Spa, with services like an energy-renewing detox massage, an ayurvedic circulatory massage, and a synchronized full-body balancing treatment performed by two massage therapists.  

7. Resident experts in holistic wellness, precision longevity sleep therapy, trauma relief are available via private consultation for assessments and to discuss guests’ specific needs. 

8. Executive chef Guillaume Robin, a veteran of Michelin-starred kitchens, stirs the culinary senses with bold flavoring and adventurous dishes at Bacán, the hotel’s ode to Central and South American influences. Featured entrees include branzino a la plancha with wild rice, peas and mint; and an 8-ounce filet mignon served with hominy and pico, oregano, pickled mustard seed and Romesco sauce.  

9. The Living Room Bar serves up small-plate dishes and handcrafted cocktails. The bright and airy Haven, which overlooks the pool, brings the outdoors inside through floor-to-ceiling windows; its Mediterranean menu includes mahi mahi souvlaki and crab saganaki with feta. After the dinner hour, the Haven’s elevated design serves as a chic backdrop for cool tunes and evening cocktails.
