The Spa at The Breakers: A Destination for Tropical Pampering and Renewal
PALM BEACH, FL – Many discerning guests of 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 where revitalization is honored as a necessity in the context of wellness and pampering. Leisure travelers and day visitors to this luxury spa include couples, friends and multigenerational families; as well as colleagues who escape from their offices to convene for organizational renewal.
Drawing on its prized oceanfront location, the 20,000-square-foot indoor/outdoor spa is situated adjacent to the resort’s Mediterranean-style Beach Club and exudes a relaxed feel of residential elegance. It features 17 treatment rooms, including several Spa Suites that accommodate a series of services in one indulgent experience. Massages can be enjoyed in outdoor settings to appreciate the sights and sounds of the Atlantic Ocean.
The Spa is the proud recipient of the 2013 Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Award, reflecting the resort’s commitment to deliver the best spa experience to its customers with the highest-quality services.
Treatments utilize the finest products and many incorporate sea and citrus ingredients indigenous to Florida with the benefits of their purifying properties. The Spa’s offerings also reflect its long-standing partnerships with two premium yet distinct brands:
Renowned aesthetician Tammy Fender, a pioneer in pure, 100-percent organic, custom-blended skincare, expresses The Spa’s commitment to all-natural, holistic offerings such as the Tammy Fender Vitality Facial. The Breakers was the first full-service resort in the world to feature this rejuvenating treatment, which incorporates the unique powers of holistic healing and custom-blended products developed by Tammy.
Guerlain, the legendary name in high-performance Parisian skincare, cosmetics and fragrance, is presented in the form of classic, luxury treatments that utilize its highly effective skincare products and facial techniques. The Spa at The Breakers was the first free-standing spa outside of Paris to offer Guerlain facials, and today, The Spa at The Breakers offers the exclusive Orchidée Impériale Facial. All aestheticians on staff are expertly trained in this facial treatment.
The Breakers menu of services is regularly updated with new and interesting signature treatments that focus on personalization. According to Tricia Taylor, The Breakers’ general manager who oversees The Spa, “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, smoothes 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.
Personalized Health & Wellness Coaching: Includes a range of tailored services from whole-self assessments to guidance on stress management, healthy eating and shopping, meditation and mindfulness. Our certified Wellness Coach is a longtime practitioner and teacher of yoga and Pilates and can customize a program to meet your desired goals.
One of the most important distinctions of The Breakers’ spa experience, however, is its warm environment, thanks to its well-trained, highly skilled staff who make it the quintessential, client-centered spa. Consistent with the standards of this legendary, Five Diamond resort, spa employees are assessed for their commitment to guest comfort and to creating a welcoming and calming ambiance, 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 intuitive attention. “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 Taylor.
At check-in, guests are escorted to their respective locker area 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; fresh-pressed juices and healthy cuisine from the adjacent Beach Club Restaurant are also available for guest enjoyment.
