The Spa at The Breakers:
A Destination for Tropical Pampering and Renewal
PALM BEACH, FL – Many discerning guests who travel to The Breakers Palm Beach crave the chance to disconnect from the demands of a stressful routine, and they count on The Spa at The Breakers as a destination for rejuvenation. The theme, ‘revitalization as necessity’, is not only a pursuit of the resort’s leisure travelers, who range from couples, friends and multigenerational families; but a goal of colleagues who escape from their offices to convene for organizational renewal.
The Spa at The Breakers offers a haven for pampering and renewal that is complemented by its prized-oceanfront location. It is the proud recipient of the 2012 Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Award and recognized as one of America’s Best Hotel and Resort Spas, reflecting the resort’s commitment to deliver the best spa experience to its customers with services of the highest quality.
Situated adjacent to the resort’s Mediterranean-style Beach Club, the 20,000-square-foot indoor/outdoor spa exudes a relaxed feel of residential elegance that was recently enhanced with a complete refurbishment. There are 17 treatment rooms, including several Spa Suites that accommodate a series of services in one indulgent experience. Massages can also be enjoyed in outdoor settings such as the Oceanfront Sanctuary or private, day-use bungalows, both with direct views of the Atlantic Ocean.
Many treatments incorporate sea and citrus ingredients indigenous to Florida, with the benefits of their purifying properties. Through its partnership with renowned aesthetician Tammy Fender, a pioneer in pure, organic, custom-blended skincare, The Spa at The Breakers offers its guests an all-natural skincare option with the Tammy Fender Holistic Facial. The Spa is the first full service resort in the world to offer this rejuvenating treatment, which incorporates the unique powers of holistic healing and 100 percent organic, custom-blended products developed by Tammy. The Breakers also continues a successful partnership with Guerlain; The Spa at The Breakers was the first free-standing spa outside of Paris to offer the exclusive Guerlain facial and the Orchidée Impériale facial, utilizing Guerlain’s highly effective skincare products and facial techniques.
The Breakers menu of services is regularly updated with new and interesting signature treatments that focus on personalization. According to spa expert Mark Mantegna, The Breakers’ director of quality & service, “Each is a masterful interpretation of the spa ‘classics’ – whether massage, facial or one-on-one fitness – that pampers and revitalizes with an extraordinary sense of caring, while tailored to each guest’s particular needs and preferences.”
Signature treatments include:
Personal Retreat Massage: Completely customized to incorporate various therapeutic techniques tailored to one’s individual needs. Whether the intention is to be pampered or to de-stress, the guest simply advises how much time is available and the master therapist will deliver a highly personalized massage experience.
Orchidée Impériale Facial: An indulgent experience that capitalizes on the rejuvenating, strengthening and anti-aging properties of the orchid flower, found in Guerlain’s Orchidée Impériale Cream and simultaneous masks. This treatment reshapes, smooths and brightens the skin, and incorporates a hand, scalp and foot massage and optional facial waxing.
A Walk On The Beach Pedicure: This completely organic, "facial for the feet," incorporates natural elements from the sea to exfoliate and invigorate the skin. The experience includes a refining exfoliation, a seaweed enriched mask, and an intensive, moisture-replenishing massage completes this marine-inspired treatment.
Fitness Assessment: Performed by a certified personal trainer. Includes a full body examination that tests endurance, strength and flexibility; and a complete body composition analysis using state-of-the-art equipment. Upon conclusion of this assessment, guests are provided with all results and a program for at-home use.
One of the biggest distinctions of The Breakers’ Spa experience however, is the warmth of its environment, propelled by the inviting manner of its well-trained, highly skilled staff. It is the quintessential, therapist-driven spa. Consistent with the standards of this legendary Five Diamond resort, spa employees are assessed for their dedication and passion for guest comfort, to create an ambiance that is welcoming and calming, as much as they are evaluated for their technical expertise and skill in providing spa services. The Spa’s team members are passionate about their profession and bring to each service an extraordinary amount of experience and sense of caring. “We know that our associates directly fuel guest satisfaction, and in turn, that is what makes our Spa the successful operation that it is,” continued Mantegna.
At check-in, guests are escorted to a locker area with steam and sauna (separate facilities for men and women) and receive a robe and slippers. Guests customize their treatments by selecting a male or female therapist as well as their preference for lighting and conversation levels. One can relax in between treatments in a comfortably appointed lounge or a tropically-landscaped outdoor courtyard with views of the Atlantic Ocean.
