A Day at Eau Spa at Ritz-Carlton, Palm Beach


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Eau Spa is nothing like I have ever experienced. It is an experience versus a treatment. A journey versus a visit. A self-indulgent treat that every person should enjoy at least once!

I felt like a kid in a candy store. Every turn offered some new and different experience and time just seemed to slip through the cracks. And it just so happens, right by the front desk you will see a clock projected onto the lobby floor. The clock actually goes backwards with the idea that time here does not matter. Perhaps, the underlying theory is that a visit here can actually turn back the hands of time, due to the result of feeling younger.

First things first, shopping! I visited their creatively named bEAU-tique which offers some unique items such as women’s clothing from around the globe, Cornelia skin care products, and featuring their signature scented products in Lemon grass and Green tea.

Next I was escorted to the check in area which is, a beautiful room that houses a wishing pool. After I answered some questions on a Personal Care Guide, I was lead over to make a wish. I was given a spa wish card and told to make a wish. I then placed a tea light into the water and “pushed” my wish officially into the universe.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      I spent some time in the warmth of the Florida sun in the Self Centered Garden, lounging on a floating chair while dipping my toes in a cooling shallow pool of water. Around me, lush green vegetation, contemporary plush furnishings in bright jewel tones like greens and blues, water falls everywhere. The sounds were enough to clear my mind. A  man in white offered me a chilled towel to wipe my brow and another surprise; a lavender-vanilla ice cream shot in honor of the Ritz Carlton’s Summer Ice Cream celebration.

Lunch was served waterfall side at a nice table for one. Just me,  dining on delectable grilled chicken, Caesar Salad with a mix of grape tomato salad, and yummy olives at a table for one! While nibbling on my guiltless salad I spoiled myself with a refreshingly sinful Blueberry Caphinira.  And to top off the deliciousness, I was sure to try out a couple of the scrumptious mini chocolate cupcakes the spa is known for.

It’s time for my appointment and Massage Therapist, Mel has arrived to lead me to the Play Villa. Eau Spa does not have just any old treatment rooms. They actually have villas for one or for two with outdoor private patio decks equipped with showers and some even have outdoor baths! The Crushed Pearl Body Smoother made me feel like royalty as a mixture of crushed pearls and minerals were rubbed into my skin to polish and soften. After an invigorating outdoor shower in the privacy of my very own deck, I returned to the warm massage table to be massaged from head to toe in a Pearl body oil that left me soft ,with a lustrous finish.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  Next, I return to the Eau Zone, the garden view waiting area, and within minutes I’m whisked away by the friendly nail specialist, Lori, who will be performing a Champagne Shimmer Pedicure on me. talk about champagne taste, the cool part about this pedicure is a solution of champagne and oils are literally poured over your feet in addition to a traditional pedicure. Lastly, a warm paraffin wrap and a thoroughly relaxing leg massage before my polish of choice. Lori even brought me a glass of bubbly to sip on and a yummy cupcake to enjoy during my treatment.

To top off the amazing day, I headed to the Bath Lounge and dosed off for a few minutes on a heated tile lounger located in the relaxing room. The Bath Lounge consists of a room with a jumbo sized Jacuzzi, steam room, sauna and even a steam shower.

My spa fantasy has come to an end, but before I leave I take advantage of a full range of the Signature scented Green Tea and Lemongrass lotions and products to freshen up before I depart. The scent lingers as I write this and I remember the Spa fantasy that came true for me and I hope some day for you.
