Spa Spy: Day Spa & Beach Retreat at the Four Seasons Resort, Palm Beach

Four Seasons

I suppose it’s not an absolute shocker that I had an amazing time at the Four Seasons.

With the esteemed reputation of the luxury resort I figured I was in for a treat… but I didn’t exactly realize how big of a treat until I got there. My experience was SO good. (Like better than that one time I got a pedi at the Ritz good.)

The spa encompasses this totally chic yet sophisticated atmosphere with ocean inspired décor. It’s one of the largest spas I’ve ever visited, complete with several relaxation rooms, a whirlpool room, steam room, showers, locker room and dressing parlor, and what seemed like an endless amount of treatment rooms.

An assortment of cookies, teas, and citrus infused waters were displayed at every turn throughout the rooms. The relaxation areas are fully stocked with healthy treats like nuts and cranberries too. (But seriously, try the cookies.)

The Day Spa & Beach Retreat package I received includes a 50 minute spa treatment, so I selected the Organic Custom Facial. My facialist, Patrick McElhenney, was amazing. He was super attentive and very knowledgeable. The Four Seasons offers a menu of ad-ons to enhance your facial experience, so I added the Kate Sommerville Deep Enzymatic Exfoliant. Best idea ever! It’s a yummy smelling papaya and pineapple combination that worked wonders on my skin.

While my skin was soaking in all of the goodies, Patrick gave me a serious shoulder massage which was equally amazing. (Thank you, Patrick!) On my way out, he mentioned that I absolutely had to try the showers before I leave. I don’t usually stick around too long after spa treatments (places to go, people to see, yada yada), but I’m so glad I took his advice! The showers in the spa have 6 adjustable shower heads (3 on each side) as well as a main overhead faucet, and a portable shower nozzle. Amazing organic rosemary mint bath products are also provided. No lie, best shower I’ve ever had. Who knew?

As you can tell, the spa was the highlight for me, but the Day Spa and Beach Retreat package also includes other awesome perks like complimentary valet parking, lunch, and access to beautiful Palm Beach for the day. In addition to this treatment package, the resort is offering other fun specials like the Watermelon Basil Vodkatini Pedicure. (I think I know what I’m going to try next time!)

It was truly the most relaxing spa experience I’ve had to date. It’s also dangerously close to where I live… so if I ever drop off the radar, I’m probably at the Four Seasons… taking a shower.

    I also just visited the Spa at the Four Seasons with my daughter and we had so much fun. It was my daughter’s first spa treatment and they made her feel so welcomed and comfortable. I agree, the showers were the highlight! Can’t wait to return.
