Palm Beach, Florida
Eau Palm Beach Resort And Spa
Glitz & Glam
What it is
A Gold Coast stunner on 7-acres of private beach, with interiors by Jonathan Adler, four restaurants and an exquisite spa.
What it isn't
Unknown. The resort has won myriad accolades year after year, including Forbes Five-Star Award, AAA Five Diamond Award, and more.
What we think
For anyone who thinks Palm Beach can get a little stuffy, Eau Palm Beach is the answer. Jonathan Adler has infused the guest rooms with his colorful brand of retro fun, from sculptural settees to chinoiserie lamps in preppy turquoise. (Amenities are as plush as you’d expect, including a marble-lined bathroom with double vanities, plush robes for cocktail hour on your lanai, and twice daily housekeeping). Of course, if you spend all your time holed up in your room, you’ll miss all the fun: Eau Palm Beach has put together an activities list that could put all others to shame, whether you feel like paddleboarding the warm waves of riding a beach cruiser along the surf. Parents love that the resort is kid-ready with AquaNuts, where littles can don costumes from a treasure chest they’ll find in a “cave.” Disney isn’t the only one making Florida magic.
You're here because
You love nothing more than being pampered like royalty, and their club-level rooms include personal concierge service, meals and bottomless beverages (including beer and wine).
A staffer hands you a flute of champagne as you step in to the 42,000 square foot spa. Here, you’ll float a candle in a wishing well in a bronze rotunda and recline in a fountain-side cabana in the Self-Centered Garden—because here, being self-centered is the entire point. Bliss.
