Eau Palm Beach brings a new sense of style with new-fashioned luxury that is more relaxed, spontaneous and genuine in a setting reminiscent of a Palm Beach estate. It’s wild, fun and invigorating – a place where you can kick off your shoes, loosen the tie, and drop the mask. Eau Palm Beach is a breezy, blissful outpost – where it’s always sunnier, friendlier, warmer.
Situated on a private beach on seven acres of oceanfront with lush tropical gardens, guests are welcomed with champagne, breathtaking ocean views and cooling tropical breezes. Indulge in the warm Florida sunshine, sumptuous accommodations, your own private cabana and the award-winning Eau Spa. Miles away from mainstream, the resort radiates the New-fashioned Palm Beach Luxury.

"Luxury is the enjoyment of comforts and pleasures such as staying in a hotel where the service is effortless and the staff attends to your every need without ever asking."
We had the exclusive opportunity to sit down with Nick Gold, Director Of Public Relations for the Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa.
What was the design inspiration for EAU Palm Beach?
Our oceanfront resort features 309 guestrooms and suites and is located along seven acres of private beachfront in Manalapan, FL – just minutes away from the Town of Palm Beach. We recently completed a complete re-envisioning of our guestrooms, and worked collaboratively with the iconic designer, potter and author Jonathan Adler, who also happens to be a part-time resident of Palm Beach. Each room channels a “Capri meets Santorini meets Palm Beach” vibe! The rooms feature new exclusive furnishings designed by Adler, one-of-a-kind art commissions by notable artists Donald “Drawbertson” Robertson, Leila Jeffries and Jenna Snyder-Phillips, classic photographs by Slim Aarons and design details that incorporate classic Chinoiserie-inspired décor and color combinations of vintage Palm Beach
What is unique about your property?
Our spa, Eau Spa, is a destination spa and is one of the most unique spas in Florida, if not the country. In 2015 it was awarded the Forbes Five Star Award, one of only some 40 spas in the world to have such a distinction. The spa features 42,000 square feet of space, 19 treatment rooms, a separate men’s and women’s area with water features and a self centered garden. The spa is unique in that it is not a health and wellness spa, but a spa that is about relaxation and distressing while having fun. The spa encourages its guests to enjoy champagne and cupcakes throughout their visit.
What was important about having Frette in your property?
Frette products set the standard for luxury hotels and resorts around the world, and guests come to expect Frette products when they stay at a AAA Five Diamond property such as Eau Palm Beach Resort.
How does the Frette product add to the design of the hotel?
Frette products are an integral part of our hotel.
What are the most important decorative elements in your hotel?
The appropriate use of color in the room; great artwork; unique accent lighting; and multiple seating areas.
What are your three most important elements when designing a bedroom/room?
Creating an environment that is restful and not overly designed. Elements include:
1) A comfortable bed
2) Luxurious bedding
3) Great lighting
What does it feel like to wrap yourself in Frette?
Wrapping yourself in Frette feels amazing – the products are soft to the touch.
How do you define luxury?
Luxury is the enjoyment of comforts and pleasures such as staying in a hotel where the service is effortless and the staff attends to your every need without ever asking.
If you only have 72 hours in Palm Beach what would you recommend doing or seeing?
Stay at Eau Palm Beach and enjoy the spa and amenities of this AAA Five Diamond property; venture in to Palm Beach and talk a leisurely stroll along world famous Worth Avenue. Be sure and check-out the ‘vias’ or alleys behind some of the shops. Take a tour of the Flagler Museum, Henry Morrison Flagler’s winter home – Whitehall – which is now open to the public. A visit to Palm Beach would not be complete without a tour on the water where you can see some of the country’s most beautiful estates up close. Also visit Peanut Island in middle of the intra-coastal. This is where you will take a tour of the bunker where the US Secret Service hid President Kennedy and his family. A visit to Palm Beach should also include a stop at the Norton Museum of Art, the Norton Sculpture Garden and a visit along Antique Row in downtown West Palm Beach – where some of the top interior designers purchase items for their clients.
What's your favorite restaurant in Palm Beach?
In addition to Angle at Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa (under the direction of Chef de Cuisine Manlee Siu), I highly recommend Bistro Chez Jean Pierre – since 1992 it’s owned and operated by a family from Normandy, France where guests will enjoy authentic French cuisine – including Dover sole, steak tartare and much more (and don’t forget to try the fries!).
