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
Eau Beach Resort and Spa is wonderful. We had perfect weather, excellent food and service and we were placed in a fabulous Johnathan Adler appointed suite overlooking and listening to the beach waves and watching the swaying coconut trees while swinging on the balcony. We were so pleased to hear the sounds of Arturo Romay’s guitar playing tonight during cocktails- Arturo is a true talent, and his passion for music is felt in each song he plays. A wonderful addition to a very special place! Thank you for another fabulous stay.
my second time at the Eau, which is beautifully renovated- everything about the hotel, from furniture to fixings to wall paper was stunning. Plus a great gym- good equipment and a yoga room- could have been colder but modern equipment and quiet. The service was amazing-- everyone was genuinely nice, friendly and helpful. We spent 3 days at the adult pool- super relaxing and great service by the staff and they were vigilant about maintaining the pool rules. The pool side service was amazing and quick and the food at the hotel was delicious. I wish i could go back in a week! i heard they may be renovating again and I hope not because the property is beautiful .
We have had the best stay at Eau Palm Beach- perfect weather, excellent service and gorgeous accommodations. This trip has only been made sweeter with the sounds of Arturo Romay’s guitar playing tonight during cocktails- Arturo is a true talent, and his passion for music is felt in each song he plays. A wonderful addition to a very special place! We can’t wait to hear him play again later this weekend!
Almost everything about our stay at the Eau was wonderful. Everyone on the staff was extremely friendly and accommodating to our family. The resort and beach are both beautiful and although it isn't in the most desirable of locations, you don't really feel it when you're in the hotel.
The one downside of this place is that they food just doesn't live up to the cost. The one dinner we ate at the resort was insanely expensive and the food just isn't great. If you stay here, I'd recommend exploring Palm Beach/Delray for much better food at a fraction of the cost.
No other way to describe it, stunning. The rooms are super clean and Beautiful. All the views from the rooms are Amazing, you can hear and see the ocean. Eau Palms is first class all the way from being greeted with Champagne to the doorman walking you to your room. The pools are all sparkling clean, the aroma in the entry way is inviting. The ocean front is just gorgeous. Highle Recommend
