Best Place to Play
Views from the Jonathan Adler–designed balconies.
When night falls at Eau Palm Beach, the fire pit on the terrace erupts with gentle flames and guests gather round, s’mores kits in hand. Adult guests, mind you. Why should kids have all the fun? That seems to be the mantra at the oceanfront resort that recently revamped its rooms—and its image—to exude a healthy dose of playfulness. The Jonathan Adler–designed rooms are not for lovers of beige. Big, bold wallpaper and carpet patterns, fearless splashes of turquoise, and midcentury-style bling are not for the faint of heart, but they certainly put you in a good mood. To reinforce the concept, complimentary Champagne flows everywhere, from check-in at 4 p.m. to the lounge at sundown to the spa pretty much anytime. The latter is accompanied by cupcakes, just because. But as the sign at the fitness center reminds you: 1 cupcake = 1 mile. It might as well say, “Life’s short: Play now, work later.”
Enjoy evenings at the fire pit.
