Seriously, you haven’t lived until you’ve had a pampering at the Eau Spa Palm Beach Resort & Spa. (If this sounds familiar it’s because I gush about this epic spa on the regular.)
The place is a design masterpiece, 42,000 square feet of relaxation. Features of the spa include the Eau Spa Beautique, The Self-Centered Garden, Private Villas, Scrub and Polish Bar, Bath Lounge, Eau Zone Relaxation Lounge, 19 Treatment Rooms, and the Salon. Every last detail is perfect. Eau Spa is a departure from traditional appointment-based treatments, enveloping guests in a calming wonderland, encouraging an individualized spa experience. It’s truly like stepping into a fantasy world.
I’ve been to the spa before, but recently took a trip to experience the Queen of Hearts treatment package for the first time. Best decision I’ve ever made!
Every treatment begins with a stop at the wishing well which I love. You light a floating candle, make a wish, then place the candle into this stunning pool of water.
After my wish, I had cupcakes and Champagne for breakfast before being treated to a 60-minute Hammam Scrub & Massage by Tammy (who was absolutely amazing). She applied a mixture of ground coffee and citrus to my entire body. It smelled awesome and totally transformed my skin! Fun fact: The Eau Spa actually has its own Scrub and Polish Bar where you can whip up your own custom scrubs to use and take home.
To wash off the scrub, I was drawn a bath fit for a queen in an opulent private boudoir. My bath was in a – wait for it – outdoor roman tub. I was literally taking a bubble bath outside, looking up at the sky, surrounded by lush trees. I felt like a movie star.
After my private garden bubble bath, I received a 60-minute Eau Naturale Facial by Lorraine. It was wonderfully relaxing and my skin has never looked better.
After that, I frolicked in the Eau Spa’s amazing outdoor water playground.
I felt like a kid again except for the fact that I was sipping a Blueberry Lavender martini. Somehow, my friends at the Eau knew I might like that.
(In fact, I liked it so much that I grabbed the recipe and will be posting it in a separate post very soon!)
Needless to say, I want to live at the Eau Spa. If you also want to live at the Eau Spa, you should check them out while their summer specials last! They are offering 40% off regular prices on select treatments. Specially priced services include the One Love Facial (90 minutes for $252, regularly $420), The Imperial Geisha (90 minutes for $178, regularly $296), No Fluff and All Buff ($60 minutes for $165, regularly $275), Garden of Eden (90 minutes for $285, regularly $475), and the treatment I was just gushing about, The Queen of Hearts (155 minutes for $286, regularly $476).
On your way out, don’t forget to visit the Eau Spa Beautique. They carry a beautiful assortment of gifts, clothing, accessories, and more – including Kevyn Aucoin makeup. And we all know how I feel about Kevyn Aucoin.)
If you are in my neck of the woods, you need to book an appointment at the Eau Spa stat. Even if you aren’t in the Palm Beach area, I strongly recommend booking a flight soon. It’s that good.
I feel bad for any spa I review after this one because it’s going to have serious shoes to fill. But you don’t have to take my word for it – Eau Spa was recently dubbed one of the top spas in the world by Conde Nast Traveler.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go book my next appointment.
