EAU PALM BEACH
WHERE SWEET STAYCATION DREAMS COME TRUE
Photos & Article by Lauren Johnson
This luxurious seaside retreat is one of only two Forbes Five Star resorts in Palm Beach and 8 in Florida. A stay at this intimate and elegant property will have you saying goodbye to keeping time as soon as you check in! Upon arrival, you are welcomed with a sparkling glass of champagne and escorted to your room. The oceanfront rooms are a favorite, where you can enjoy the sound of crashing waves below you and uninterrupted views of the Atlantic Ocean. The Lanai Rooms allow you to step out your door and into a private lanai where you only need to push a button to receive personalized service from an attendant.
If you like the idea of personalized attention and your very own space to soak up the breathtaking ocean views along with the cooling sea breezes, the oceanfront cabanas are just divine! You can rent them for the entire day and then personalize them to add all of your favorite things! From Dom Perignon and chocolate covered strawberries, to Chef Inspired meals and chilled towels, all would be delivered to you oceanside. There is also an adults only pool nearby which is flanked by lovely lounge chairs to soak up the sun, as well as a newly opened bar area! And trust me, if you are staying at the EAU on a Saturday, find your way over to that adult pool for a special surprise at around 2:30.
Another reason many people return again and again is to “Pause, Play and Perfect” at the Eau’s 42,000 square foot award winning spa. This is not your everyday spa experience, as you will quickly realize upon entering into this tranquil wonderland. The Eau Zone starts your serene journey through this magical space, where upon completion of your treatment, or even before it begins, you can relax and soak up some “me” time in the “Self-Centered Garden” while sipping on champagne, or perhaps you are feeling a little playful and would prefer to hang out in the swinging chairs while listening to the burbling of the nearby fountain, my personal favorite.
If a delicious meal is part of your plan, you would never need to leave the property! There are the Farm to Fork selections
at Angle, which has luxurious seating and glowing candlelight, creating a warm and romantic ambiance. If Italian food is what you savor, look no further then Polpo and their fine selections, which can be enjoyed indoors or out. The Octopus is out of this world! If you are like me and like dining al fresco, then Breeze is your scene for craft cocktails and ocean views while you dine. The latest addition to the Eau dining experience will be a Sushi restaurant which should be near completion by this Spring.
If you love luxury, serenity and stunning ocean views then you must plan your next girls trip or a romantic getaway at The Eau. I promise you, it will be EAUmazing!!!
