Suspended inches above a shallow pool, a crescent-moon-shaped chair sways, beckoning guests to sit and trail their toes in the ripples. Weightlessness is the goal at Eau Spa, where men and women in white robes float from room to room as lightly as champagne bubbles, buoyed above everyday worries by the sound of trickling water. Today's Reserve selection invites you to dip your toes in tranquility with a spa day at Eau Spa, which includes:
- 60-minute champagne shimmer pedicure
- 90-minute EauSsential Perfect facial
- DIY scrub-and-polish-bar experience
- Complimentary glass of champagne
The 42,000-square-foot spa at the center of the Ritz-Carlton's five-star and five-diamond Palm Beach resort explicitly encourages guests to be self-centered—that is, balanced and at ease in their own relaxed bodies. Many of the spa's treatment areas surround the Self-Centered Garden’s oasis, letting in calm breezes and natural light. The layout also makes for an easy post-treatment path from pedicure chair to waterfall bench to tree-shaded cabana.
As carefully considered as the aqueous ambiance is, Eau Spa also asks guests to take a hand in setting the mood. Before the spa day begins, guests will select colored lighting, aromatherapy scents, and a soundtrack for their day of sensory bliss. Then, they’ll share a toast with their own toes during the champagne shimmer pedicure. The treatment exfoliates the feet and legs, preparing pores to soak up maximal goodness from a footbath with essential oils, a warm paraffin wrap, and a leg massage. After pampering leg muscles, spa techs stimulate the face with minute electric currents, stoking circulation while toning muscles. Physician-formulated ZO Skin Health products amplify the face-lift-like effect with high concentrations of ingredients designed to spur elastin and collagen production.
Finally, a stop at the scrub-and-polish bar swaddles the entire body in a unified sensory experience. A spa mixologist helps select scents and ingredients to soften and exfoliate the skin, then blends them into a scrub, a body butter, and a mist. With one-of-a-kind salves in hand, guests then retreat to the sauna, steam room, showers, or heated lounge to spend some quality time with their own skin and rediscover any cool birthmarks they’d forgotten about.
