Q: What makes a luxury hotel?
From the very beginning, we were determined to create a one-of-a-kind hotel experience truly deserving of its luxury reputation. We wanted a hotel that stood apart in Orlando’s crowded hospitality sector—and what better way than to start with the name itself. ette stands for earthy, true, timeless, elegant. Every decision we made from that point was based upon those four concept pillars, from architecture to glassware choices; services to brand names.
We believe a true luxury hotel experience begins the moment you enter the property. All your senses become engaged by what you see and hear, of course, but taste, touch, and smell are just as important. Maybe even more so.
Taste is the obvious starting point for us at ette. Executive Chef Akira Back delivers luxury in spades. He is a Michelin star recipient who has opened over 20 restaurants in countries around the world. At Salt & The Cellar, Chef Back takes taste to places most diners will never even approach with his innovative fusion of Asian and modern cuisines!
Step up to the Fragrance Bar at ette and take your sense of smell on vacation through its collection of unique, exclusive perfumes. Le Labo is an special favorite and its delicate fragrance permeates all the common areas in the hotel, as well as the shampoos, soaps, and conditioners in every guest room.
All your senses become engaged by what you see and hear, of course, but taste, touch, and smell are just as important.
Speaking of guest rooms, the elegant, relaxing, European vibe addresses every creature comfort our guests need, while the Suites go above and beyond with in-room Peloton machines, Technogym gear and yoga mats.
The Spa delivers a whole-body luxury experience for guests, with exceptional healing techniques, therapies, massages, and skincare treatments from skilled healers. Exclusive product lines like Natura Bissé, Tammy Fender, and Florivera add their names to the ette hotel definition of luxury. And the pool is a veritable oasis punctuated by bespoke, Missoni-lined conversation spaces, plush Frette terry towels, Salt and Stone sun products, and an exquisitely crafted poolside menu of mocktails and delicious Akira Back offerings.
So, what really makes a luxury hotel? Consider this my personal invitation for you to come experience the earthy, true, timeless, elegant details.
