Opulence and passion abound in Palm Beach

EAU Palm Beach Resort and Spa delivers on promise to rejuvenate, renew

The moment you walk in to this stunning beachfront property, a unique scent takes over your senses, a scent that leaves you yearning for more. We found out that this “signature scent” was custom blended by Votivo – titled Palm Beach Breeze, it is truly unforgettable [and available to take home]. Pairing the scent with the visuals of endless Carrere marble, urns brimming with seashell keepsakes and crystal chandeliers as far as the eye can see, the glamour of Palm Beach is ever present.

Aside from the beauty of the surroundings, the staff proves eager to please and “My pleasure…” becomes the answer to all of your requests. After learning of the accommodations at the front desk, a member of the bell staff thoroughly reviews the property from top to bottom, leaving no stone unturned. If this is your first visit, you’ll certainly benefit from the brief, but complete rundown of the property. The warm-up to the amenities is quick and painless, as the property is laid out for convenience and ease, a quick
reference by way of finger pointing is all you need.

Making your way to the guest rooms, the appointments are elegant and simple. A large entertainment center houses the mini-bar, complimentary water and coffee and ample supplies of dark and milk chocolates show up at each turn down. Many of the rooms have balconies – you’ll want one – overlooking the grounds. The property is laid out thoughtfully, as views of swaying palms and the resort pool are highlighted by the blue hue of the ocean and styled fountains along the perimeter. The bathrooms are complete with the beautiful combination of glass and more marble from floor to ceiling, as a soaking tub and a fully enclosed shower are complemented by the make-up mirror [a must for her] and plush towels. The king bedroom also comes complete with a love seat for little one, as it doubles as a bed once the time for tired eyes arrives. The high thread count sheets put icing on the king-sized cake. From the world-class spa to the children’s amenities, four dining options, a separate adult pool, and a business center – complete with work stations and private rooms, the property lacks nothing for the guest experience. Many properties can seem to go on forever; this resort, while not small, delivers on the intimacy of a small resort but boasts an extensive list of amenities that sprawl out over several acres. The shores of the barrier island of Manalapan provide an ocean of crystal blue and a characteristic breeze relieves guests from the summer swelter.

If you’re a couple seeking a break or a business traveler, the amenities afford you the ability to be without interruption, as the spa, adult pool and lobby bar “Stir” are great places to unwind. Gorgeous furniture and lobby lounges accommodate several parties at a time and food service and cocktails are served throughout, including the outdoor patios by the fire pit. One of the highlights for couples [or kids] is the table top S‘mores fire pits, an absolute must do!

Eau Spa 2For families travelling with children, the amenities for kids rival any resort and exceed expectations. AquaNuts lives up to its name, as staff provide water borne programming and other fun that suits children from ages 5 through 12. For teenagers, there’s Coast, set up to provide a dance scene, DJ equipment and good times. The best part of the trip can sometimes be the opportunities for everyone in the family – EAU provides these moments…now to the spa!

If the spa getaway and a sensual retreat are your goal, this is the place for adults to hunker down. Conde Nast rated the 48,000 square-foot spa as one of the top 25 spas in the world. You’ll believe it once you’re swinging in the “Self Centered Garden” complete with swinging chairs, waterfalls and reflecting pool. It’s definitely a unique setting, another must.
There is truly something for everyone on property or a short drive away. Worth Avenue is unparalleled in its world class brands for shoppers and the eclectic Delray Beach is 20 minutes south down the coast. The fishing is outstanding and the diving equally excellent, as you’re four miles to the Gulf Stream. If you’re looking for a resort that delivers an outstanding visit, it can be found about four hours from our neighborhoods, not a far cry to extraordinary.
