Palm Beach, Florida
Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach
What it is
A glamorous 210-room retreat on Palm Beach Island with a VIP-ready spa and a three-Michelin starred chef helming its Mediterranean restaurant.
What it isn't
Adults-only. Littles are treated like honored guests here, with movies-on-the-beach, cookie decorating parties and sandcastle making in their Kids for All Seasons program.
What we think
For preppy Palm Beach revelers, Four Seasons delivers perfection. Most rooms are adorned in breezy blues and whites that reflect the adjacent Atlantic Ocean, plus Deco-inspired rounded furniture in ivory and sunwashed sea glass hues that are pure Florida (note the glimmering, mosaic-tiled floors underfoot in each bathroom). If you’re practically a mermaid and will be spending most of your trip by the sceney, Art Deco-inspired pool, it’s worth asking for an Ocean-View Cabana Terrace Room for its direct entrance to the pool deck.
You're here because
Unsurprisingly, service is topnotch; amenities all ages can enjoy include dive-in movies in the pool, a house car for zipping to nearby sights, and plenty of pampering by the ocean (staffers will happily clean your sunglasses, spritz you with Evian, or loan you a stand-up paddleboard).
Four Seasons enlisted Chef Mauro Colagreco—the Argentine-Italian helming the world’s best restaurant, Mirazur—to direct their menu and experience at Florie’s, and it shows. One bite of their local burrata with citrus salad, which is dusted with basil, coriander seeds, and Sicilian pistachios, and you’re in edible heaven.
