Visitors flock to Palm Beach for stunning beaches, luxurious accommodations, terrific food and a touch of old-school glamor. The Four Seasons is the place to stay to experience the best that Palm Beach has to offer, all while being pampered by the property’s exceptional staff. The resort boasts great food, terrific activities, a plush spa and a sustainability commitment you can feel good about.
Recently renovated, the property’s rooms are luxurious and relaxing. You can expect custom silk patterned wallcovering and beautiful hand-tufted wool rugs. A new category of first-floor guest rooms have been created that include expanded balconies that lead directly to the pool deck and the ocean. For a splurge, consider the Grand Ocean Suite, where you can enjoy ocean views from the living room, dining room and bedroom. The public areas are filled with oversized nature prints and comfy couches with a beachy vibe.
Multiple pools and an expansive beachfront
The highlight of most Palm Beach visits is spending time lounging by the pool or enjoying the beach. Many properties in Palm Beach only have a narrow strip of sand to enjoy; however, the Four Seasons is happily situated on a relatively wide strip of sand where you will find an abundance of space. And if you prefer to stay poolside, you can choose between the more sedate adult pool and the more raucous family pool. Either way, you will be well-taken care of by the incredibly cheerful pool staff.
Four Seasons activities
For the ultimate Palm Beach experience, you need to experience the area’s most iconic activities. First up is polo. The Four Seasons has arranged for several unique polo experiences. You can watch a match with leading polo player, Nic Roldan, enjoy a private one hour lesson that comes with all the gear you need and a champagne picnic or give the kids a kid-friendly lesson with Nic where your polo prodigy can learn the basic swings and riding techniques.
And it wouldn’t be Palm Beach without tennis. The property has two tennis courts and an amazing pro on-site who managed to miraculously improve my game after just one lesson. And if you are yearning to hit the open seas, the hotel can arrange a private yacht which can take you to the best spots for snorkeling, fishing or on a sunset cruise complete with savory treats. And for getting around, the Four Seasons provides two house cars: a fully electric Porsche Taycan and Tesla Model X. Bikes are also available and are another perfect way to enjoy Palm Beach.
Palm Beach has an exceptional dining scene and the Four Seasons has some of the area’s best restaurants. Florie’s is the first restaurant in the country to partner with Mauro Colagreco, the chef behind 2019’s world’s best restaurant. This is the place to find Mediterranean-inspired dishes, many prepared with live-fire cooking and many made with locally-sourced ingredients. Signature appetizers include heirloom tomato and peach carpaccio and Florida snapper crudo. The house-made paccheri pasta cacio & pepe is outstanding and the stone hearth oven produces a splashy whole salt crusted dorade that arrives with seafood and saffron rice pilaf. Date and coffee tiramisu is a great way to end the meal.
For something more casual, head over to Seaway. Here you can enjoy an ocean view with a terrific selection of dishes that feature seafood and ingredients indigenous to South Florida, all cooked with a bit of Latin influence. Wild Gulf shrimp cocktail or a snapper ceviche are a refreshing way to start your meal. A “Namaste” grain bowl and the catch of the day will help you feel both full and virtuous. Then you can splurge on the key-lime pie or mini churros topped with dulce du leche.
Palm Beach is a favorite destination for inter-generational travel. Families with kids will have multiple group activities they can enjoy together. The Four Seasons provides access to paddleboards, kayaks and boogie boards and a place to play beach volleyball, soccer, basketball and croquet. Kids can try a cooking class or join the complimentary “Kids for all Seasons” programming that includes activities such as arts & crafts and sandcastle making.
And if you need to relax after all that activity, head over to the very calming spa. Here, you can indulge in a variety of massages that use locally sourced products, try “Oceanique” body treatments where you are cradled on a warm water mattress in a glow of chromotherapy or indulge in a state-of-art facial treatment.
And you can enjoy your holiday knowing that the Four Seasons is committed to sustainability. The property has been recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Department of Energy as an “ENERGY STAR” certified property for its highly-rated energy efficiency and performance standards.
