One of five properties in resort-heavy South Florida to be crown the coveted AAA 5-Diamond award in 2014, the Eau Palm Beach (a former Ritz Carlton until 2013) rests on a seven-acre oceanfront stretch known as Manalapan, 20 minutes from Palm Beach proper.
It lives up to the area’s swank reputation, but does so without being overly stuffy. Rooms are gorgeous and all come with balconies with ocean, pool or garden views. Expect complimentary amenities like in-room Wi-Fi, turn-down service and fun take-home souvenirs like an Eau beach bag, flip flops and a journal.
While service throughout the hotel is exemplary, over-the-top pampering takes place in the 42,000 square foot Eau Spa. Sip champagne and snack on decadent cupcakes in "water garden" before slipping into one of the treatment rooms. Readers of Conde Nast Traveler rated it as one of the top 25 spas in the world in 2014.
In addition to typical resort activities like tennis and sunbathing, the resort offers complimentary morning beach yoga and boot camp sessions, dive-in movie nights and themed cocktail parties for adults. Kids are VIPs here, too, with a choice of several camps—AquaNot, Kids Camp or Coast or the Tweens Club, both offering social, sporting and adventure activities.
Foodies love the place for its signature restaurant Angle, in which a steakhouse meets modern day supper club featuring some of the best cuts of beef from cattle ranches throughout the United States. In addition to steaks, chef Matthew McGhee is known for his Osetra caviar tacos which exemplify Eau’s MO of being ritzy but not traditional. There are are three other casual dining and drinking options here making it very easy not to have to leave the premises.
From the press:
"If the Breakers is too mammoth for your taste, consider the Eau. A lot
warmer than the Four Seasons, the Eau...lacks pretension and feels more like a boutique
hotel" -- Frommer's
"Fun, whimsical, and extremely luxurious experiences at the Eau Spa" -- Conde Nast Traveler
