Our greatest regret, I think, was that we did not take advantage of the spa and all the spa services offered. But with our stay being so short we really just wanted to take advantage of the warm sunny weather. The Spa itself is beyond. With over 42,000 square feet of space, it is truly a playground for adults to unwind and relax. For images and more on the spa click here. Really do click!
Now to the dining. Temple Orange is where we ate breakfast every morning. Careful to keep our diets in check we ordered egg white omelets twice and created our own. They were divine. To die for actually. There's also a buffet which looked absolutely fabulous, but that was more food than we wanted in the morning. We also ate lunch there one day. I ordered the Salade Nicoise which didn't disappoint, and a healthy portion of seared tuna, and my partner ordered the Ratatouille Bowl with slow cooked veggies, freekeh, chickpeas, arugula and tahini. Also divine. The restaurant is open throughout the day. You're on vacation, after all and shouldn't have to adhere to any meal schedule!
Prefer to eat Poolside, then Breeze Ocean Kitchen is where you'll order from... That sublime Mahi Mahi taco was from Breeze.
The folks at Eau describe Stir as "a relaxing place to enjoy the hotel's atmosphere adjacent to the lobby with a light menu available. By night, experience the transformation as Stir becomes the center of evening activity. Choose your favorite libation to enjoy on the oceanfront terrace around the firepit. Enjoy light bites, appetizers, cocktails and specialty coffees alongside live entertainment on the weekends. On Thursday evenings, enjoy our Butcher's Block featuring indulgent selections of meats and cheeses, and on Fridays and Saturdays, treat yourself to fresh sushi at our weekend social." We enjoyed many of their creative libations and glasses of wine both inside by the fireplace and outside by the firepit.
In addition to the fine dining, the myriad of activities offered to children of all ages, the hotel boasts a state of the art fitness center with yoga, pilates, and sculpting classes for guests at a nominal fee for those who make fitness a priority.

As the sun sets, the lobby is illuminated over with 100 candles. On Friday and Saturday, guests are offered complimentary Champagne and invited to toast the new Palm Beach lifestyle. Other new events include "Living Room Session" musical performances; weekend nights punctuated by the electric sounds of the hottest DJ's; Asian street food evenings and hand-rolled sushi paired with expertly mixed Sake-tinis.

Our stay at this fabulous luxury resort was all too short. The staff were courteous, pleasant and helpful. There was always someone on hand to assist us with our every need. The rooms are glorious and pristine. The food and beverage were of the highest quality. While we had not hear of Eau Spa and Resort, it is now on our radar and we look forward to our return to take advantage of all they have to offer!
And for you, the best part, prices are very reasonable off season. I have a BIG Birthday is in June... hint-hint! ;)
