The Breakers Palm Beach doesn’t do anything halfway. The resort is legendary for (among other things) its personal guest services and attention to detail.
Perhaps nowhere is that more evident than at the Spa at The Breakers. One of the country’s top spa destinations, The Spa at The Breakers features 17 treatment rooms (including the great Spa Suite), men’s and women’s locker rooms; a sauna and steam on the men’s side and steam on the women’s side; salon; Quartz Room; ice fountain; fresh snacks and juices; and private outdoor courtyard with pool.
Unpretentious and inviting, the Spa at The Breakers is a great place to spend an hour, a half-day or even an entire day.
“Nothing that is sterile,’’ said Spa Director Amy Retay. “Everything here is very inviting. You don’t have to watch your step.’’
And that’s the message Retay wants to get convey.
“Come here and disconnect,’’ Retay said. “Our population is in such a hurry to move, move, move. And a lot of a our guests come in right at the times of their appointments. But there’s a reason we ask them to come early – so they can enjoy everything we have to offer.
“We try to think of everything our guests would like or use and make them accessible. We try to Identify how a guest wants to feel and the areas we can target for them. Whether it’s a massage or a facial, how can they benefit from it? We do a lot of training with our therapists to see that they ask those questions.’’
Some of those answers come in the Spa’s three new three, half-day experiences, each inspired by the resort’s oceanfront location in South Florida.
For example, the “Sea You at The Breakers,’’ three-and-a-half hour experience -infused with organic, marine-based ingredients and cold pressed essential oils – is an anti-aging treatment that firms the skin, reduces fine lines and leaves a luminous glow. The experience features a begins an 80-minute OSEA Body Wrap with a dry brush exfoliation, followed by an Undaria Seaweed Body Mask to rejuvenate and tone the skin; 50-minute OSEA Vitamin Sea Brightening Facial; and a 50-minute mini manicure and pedicure that includes a Sea You at The Breakers polish created exclusively for the resort by renowned nail brand essie.
The three-hour “Sunshine State of Mind’’ experience features the orange blossom – Florida’s state flower – incorporated in a 50-minute Orange Blossom Custom Massage to release muscle tension; followed by a 50-minute Orange Blossom Facial to restore balance, clarity and hydration; and a 50-minute mini Orange Blossom Manicure and Pedicure.
The “Build Your Own Spa Day,’’ offers guests 10 percent savings when packaging three spa and/or salon services during one visit.
“With our guests, the biggest trend is they just want to walk into a treatment room and say, ‘I have an hour or two and this is what I want you to address,’’’ Retay said. “That’s when we can truly customize the experience. Each table has hot stones, oils and all the different music channels. So, how much time you allows us to out you with one of our highly-trained providers will meet your needs.’’
