ORLANDO, FL. - ette hotels, a contemporary luxury hotel group founded by hotelier Alex Ekbatani, launches ette hotel Orlando, the first in their portfolio which is set to open its doors early this Summer. Out to redefine the luxury hospitality space, ette hotels will feature a sophisticated look and feel with a focus on high-touch service and personalized experiences.
“We are in the business of customized service and the most luxurious details,” noted Alex Ekbatani CEO of ette hotels. “ette is the culmination of unique 5-star experiences and elements to create a sense of place that’s earthy, true, timeless, and elegant (ette).”
Located four miles South of the famed theme parks, the 126-room property will welcome guests with an exterior entryway lattice with vines and a 35-year-old olive tree symbolic of peace and prosperity. From the Italian Calacatta marble laden lobby space, to the Tuscan-inspired courtyard which leads to the lush and tranquil pool deck, designed in partnership with Bonetti/Kozerski, ette hotel will elevate and enliven the senses, embodying elegance with ease.
“At every turn, ette will surprise and delight guests,” added Ekbatani. “We are discerning and we know it. Every detail has been thoughtfully crafted to holistically uplift the guest experience. We’ve sourced and selected the best partners and premium products for our dining, spa and in-room offerings.”
In partnership with Michelin Star Chef Akira Back, ette hotel will offer unparalleled culinary experiences, encompassing two floors. Guests can enjoy non-alcoholic mixology drinks around the lively main floor bar or take refuge in the velvet lined, hand-chiseled, sentient seats. For heartier provisions, Salt & The Cellar, a Mediterrasian focused restaurant, will serve breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. The dining space spills into a verdant courtyard featuring a linear fountain, adorned by a fragrant herb garden.
Ascend to the 6th floor rooftop and discover Chef Back’s LIPA, the creative crossroads of old-world and new-world Asian haute cuisine, complemented by a zero-alcohol bar and lounge offering instagram-worthy concoctions. With a unique vantage point, hotel guests and locals alike will be able to soak up the roofdeck, panoramic park views and extraordinary nightly fireworks.
A distinctive, not to be missed, attribute is the world’s first open-concept back of house laundry service, where guests can view first-hand how Italian linens and towels are meticulously pressed and folded. Tumble dry takes on an entirely new meaning as ette’s laundry specialists work their magic displaying a symphony of cleanliness.
This notion of transparency, perceptive service and wellness as a lifestyle carries over to The Spa at ette, which will provide services for everyone from the modern minimalist to the unruly naturalist, a welcome retreat for rejuvenation or a full reset.
Rooms vary from well-appointed suites and wellness suites, replete with a Peloton bike and Technogym weights, to Queens and Kings. Sleek chrome lighting fixtures illuminate each room and are fabricated exclusively for ette in California. Le Labo and Salt & Stone products encased in a custom lacquer box will be luxurious, memorable in-room touches for guests. Additional amenities include space for intimate parties, weddings and executive meetings; and a state of the art luxury gym outfitted by PENT Fitness. Known for providing fitness products for luxury yachts and villas, ette hotel is pleased to be the first hotel in Florida to feature PENT Fitness.
Ette hotel’s impeccable service, adept staff and exceptional dining options will make for a perfect getaway, weekend destination, or culinary adventure. Hotel guests as well as locals will depart, yearning to return.
