From dining at lauded restaurants to shopping in Worth Avenue’s upscale boutiques, there is no shortage of elevated activities in the coastal town of Palm Beach. This level of luxury also speaks to Palm Beach as a relaxation destination, especially when enjoying a glass of champagne in a secluded garden post-massage as one can at this week’s pick of Eau Spa.
As part of five-star Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa, Eau Spa spans 42,000 sq ft of wellness space on the grand Palm Beach property. Nineteen treatment rooms allow guests to personalize their experiences, from the scents, to the music to the lighting. The focal point is a Self-Centered Garden where trickling fountains and lush flora create a serene space to find your center, whether in a swinging chair, cabana or dipping pool. Within the expansive spa, intimate Garden Villas provide a private setting featuring generously sized tubs, outdoor showers and lounging areas for unwinding as the Florida sun beams. Reflect by the Wishing Well or work up a sweat at the Fitness Center and Movement Studio.
Based around the concept of “Pause, Play and Perfect,” the treatment menu at Eau Spa is both comprehensive and customizable. “Pause” centers on relaxing, curating a sensorial experience around scents of lavender and mint, blue color therapy and chilled out music; “Play” focuses on citrus and eucalyptus scents, red color therapy and upbeat music; “Perfect” concentrates on results-driven beauty treatments with ginger and vanilla scents, gold color therapy and a mix of stimulating tunes. The spa offers and array of massages, body treatments, couple’s treatments, skin care including HydraFacial MD, and a MENu of services tailored exclusively to males. Before an event, guests can visit the on-site salon for hair, nails, makeup and waxing, then extend the bliss past your trip with a custom kit from the Scrub & Polish Bar.
For something special, book the 3001: A Face Odyssey facial treatment that uses ‘space’ technology of plant stem cells with the highest concentration of proprietary peptides in the world to lift skin. Then, add a bit of bubbly to your spa day with the sumptuous Champagne Shimmer Body Luster, using crushed pearls, natural teas and warm champagne oil to smooth, polish and hydrate skin. Top it off with an iridescent pearl manicure designed to reduce age spots and soothe tired hands with crushed pearls, natural teas and warm paraffin.
With brightly colored interiors designed by Jonathan Adler, the most luxurious accommodation to retire to after a spa day is the Commander-in-Chief Suite. Oceanfront views meet bold yet elegant decor in this spacious two-bedroom suite with a balcony looking out over the Atlantic.
