Globetrotting Cindy just got back from the The Ritz-Carlton, Palm Beach which reopened following a whopping $120-million renovation. If you’re looking for distressing ocean views and the best pools in Palm Beach, there is nowhere better to spend a long weekend.
Take your choice of spacious guestrooms, luxurious suites or their famous Presidential Suite. For dining, the Terrace restaurant (the only oceanfront terrace dinning in Palm Beach) features a fire pit that is ceremoniously lit each evening – perfect for torching S’Mores.
The highlight of the property has to be their new $30-million Eau Spa, which opened in March 2009. The 42,000-square-foot haven is unlike any spa I have ever seen, and is the grand finale of the resort’s four-year transformation project. For a private day, a spa day with the girls, or a romantic retreat with your man, visit one of the 19 treatment rooms, most with private gardens. You’ll find an open air garden with hanging chairs suspended above a reflection pond, the first of its kind “scrub and polish bar” where guests can mix up their own scrubs and polishes with the help of an on-site mixologist, a bath lounge, three couples spa villas with oversized tubs and outdoor rain showers, and a fitness center offering yoga and spin classes.
Here are some of my favorite spa specials that are currently running. Best of all, every treatment includes their signature mini chocolate cupcakes. YUM!
