A project I am extremely proud to have been part of (accessories have all been sourced by moi) is one of the hottest spas to hit Palm Beach in decades thanks to Ritz Carltons 42,000 sq foot extension.
Eau Spa debuts March 2009. Its a truly sublime retreat that offers a distinct setting for adults to engage in a magical spa experience with a variety of sensational beauty treatments and surprising touches throughout.
The Self-Centered Garden is soooo beautiful. You can relax on gently swaying swing chairs while trailing your feet in a pool of shallow water. As sundials tick to the clock of another worlds time you can sunbathe while reading a book or just let go on waterfall benches as a warm embrace of falling water erases stress and tension from neck and shoulder muscles. Then there’s the scrub and polish bar (every girls idea of heaven) where resident mixologists will create a personalised blend of aromatic herbs, soothing oils and gritty sea salts. Still not convinced then listen to this 12 of the 19 Spa Villas offer a private escape in the peacefulness of the rich, natural surroundings. Three special Couples Spa Villas provide an intimate experience far beyond treatments, with lavish garden enclaves, oversized tubs and outdoor rainfall showers for an open-air spa experience to cleanse one’s spirit.
The interior itself is an expanse of gorgeousness, refined and opulent with an emphasis on individuality. I was brought on board to accessorise the spa bringing my own sense of individuality and design sensibility to Palm Beach. So accessories are stamped with the Atelier vibe -think exciting, edgy, eccentric and contemporary.
