A tasteful Mediterranean Revival mansion with plenty of Palm Beach panache. The ultra-high-ceilinged, marble-floored lobby is kitted out like an elegant living room: floral loveseats, overstuffed chairs and striking lamps atop end tables. And at the back, floor-to-ceiling glass gives way to the Stir Terrace & Bar (great for happy hour) and the pool. Jewelry and clothing boutiques front the Eau Spa, which features an enclosed garden, huge urns holding lime trees, a giant chessboard, hanging hammocks and innumerable water features that patrons are encouraged to splash around in. The public areas are regularly patrolled by service staff supplying sparkling wine and cupcakes.
Bed and Bath
Refined guestrooms are filled with walnut furniture, chaise lounges, throw pillows and floor-to-ceiling drapes in caramel, camel, green and Victorian-inspired floral patterns. On the beach side of the building, sliding doors lead to surprisingly long balconies with ocean views. The bathrooms are truly remarkable: Multi-faucet sinks run the length of the mirror, the glass-enclosed shower’s embedded heads cleanse you from above and the sides, and gigantic freestanding bathtubs are ideal for couples. Red Flower products, organic and soothing, up the relaxation factor.
Food is a focal point. The intimate restaurants — Angle, which has decor with medieval flair, and the larger Temple Orange, which has a chic European aesthetic — offer globally oriented farm-to-table fare, with produce like butter lettuce and Brussels sprouts from nearby Swank Farms. Still, the menus don’t shy away from imported luxury items (caviar, cheese, game) or fancy techniques (emulsions, infusions, gelées). Lunch at the Stir Bar & Terrace and at Breeze (located right on the seawall) features lighter options from the dinner menus; breakfast is a lavish buffet. Cocktails in the lobby lounge are an elegant precursor to an evening out, especially when Sushi Jo is in the house rolling his finest concoctions. The Zen-centric facilities at the Eau Spa (pool cabanas, sensory treatment rooms, a scrub and polish bar) make it a destination in its own right. Treatments meld ancient methods with up-to-the-minute technologies. Exercising is also an extreme pleasure here, with two pools and beach access for swimming, snorkeling, sailing and parasailing. In addition, bicycle rentals, basketball, volleyball, tennis and yoga are all available (as well as the Aquanuts underwater-themed club for children, and Camp Coast for teens).
In the Area
The downtown Lake Worth scene, a causeway trip away, is less luxe and more organic, with live music clubs, a lively arts scene and livelier locals frequenting the bars (Propaganda plays host to indie bands). For a vibe similar to Eau, head to Palm Beach’s famous Worth Avenue, where Saks Fifth Avenue anchors all manner of designer boutiques, including Cartier, Chanel and Gucci. For a blend of the two scenes, hit Clematis Street. Located in downtown West Palm Beach, this hipster neighborhood offers all manner of diversions, including dinner at the rocking Mexican restaurant Rocco’s Tacos. Nearby, and as titillating for kids as for their parents, CityPlace presents more than 100 shopping, dining and entertainment options. During the day families should check out Phipps Ocean Park, which has a renowned tennis center and the Palm Beach Zoo. A little farther afield, Lion Country Safari is the state’s only drive-through adventure.
How to Get There
Stay here and listen to Arturo Roman in the lobby. I was amazed by the music and style of his playing. You could really tell he knew what he was doing!!!!! He plays the guitar like is a second nature!!!! We listen for a very long time and could listen for ever!!!! We ate dinner by the fire in the lobby and listen to the soothing and amazing music. Would definitely go again!!!!!
We had an amazing 3rd anniversary at Eau Spa! It was the most romantic setting in the couples room with a outside garden and private tub. The hydra therapy jacuzzi in the locker rooms was to die for and the comfy swinging chairs in the outdoor relaxation area is bliss. Our massages and pedicures were top notch. This is a perfect get away for a couple looking to reconnect!
Not the cheapest place to eat but superb for a special occasion, tables are set out on the terrace overlooking the blue blue sea, the view is just wonderful , help yourself to a fabulous buffet with just about anything you can think of & for an extra $25 you are treated to as many champagne cocktails as you can politely manage.Wonderful place for that special celebration or just spoiling yourself on holiday.
Beautiful resort. Gorgeous interior and spa. Very nice heated pools with "tranquility pool" for adults only. Great staff and exceptional service. Live jazz in lounge was nice. Special events like sushi night are a nice touch. Management takes good care of you. Get a massage at the spa with Josephine-best ever. Very good food with in-room breakfast being our favorite: exceptional lox/bagel, yogurt parfait and fresh squeezed OJ. Suite 216 is something special with perfect location ocean front and big balcony. Open one of the two sets of sliders and park the room-service breakfast table right there looking at the ocean. Great location between Palm Beach and Boca.
This resort goes above and beyond the standard word of excellence! The service the club level the food the people the staff! We even can’t back it feels so much like home! The rooms are decorated top notch and happy with a fun flair! The lobby is beautiful and tasteful! Smells amazing! Can’t say enough good things! Don’t make a mistake and pick a different resort at palm beach you will be disappointed and beg to switch! There’s even outdoor swings on the porch! Delightful!
