The Spa at The Breakers

A dramatic $8 million full-scale renovation has transformed Palm Beach’s coveted destination for personal renewal.  The new indoor/outdoor spa evokes The Breakers’ seaside sophistication and Italian influence with a calming, modern style envisioned by internationally renowned designer Sylvia Sepielli (U.K.’s Spa Village Bath at Gainsborough Bath Spa, Dolder Spa in Zurich). The stunning, contemporary aesthetic features clean lines, artisan elements and a soothing canvas of elegant shades of white; the four elements of ocean, touch, botanicals and tradition add inspiration.  The theme “held in our hands” expresses The Spa’s commitment to nurturing and healing each guest with heightened comfort and care, manifest by expertly-trained, intuitive staff and their warm, genuine service.  
The curated menu is based on the highest-quality treatments derived from organic and natural products/ingredients: 

  • Tammy Fender — Palm Beach-based line of custom-blended 100% botanical, holistic skin care for face and body 
  • OSEA — powerful marine-based formulations with pure essential oils 
  • ERBE — authentic, hand-crafted Italian skin and body care with custom formulas dating back to 16th-century Italy; The Spa at The Breakers is the first and only U.S. location to feature ERBE spa treatments

  • Premium spa retail showcases authentic Italian, local and hand-crafted products.  Purchases packaged in custom-designed FEED bags; proceeds of the bag benefit organizations fighting hunger nationally

13 Years & Still Tasting…

Master Sommelier’s Annual Wine-Blending Journey Ensures Resort’s House Varietals in League of Their Own

Each year in June, The Breakers’ Wine Director & Master Sommelier, Virginia Philip, and several colleagues travel to France  on an annual wine-blending journey, to customize the finest proprietary blends of house wines exclusive to The Breakers. Launched in 2003, this yearly program was born from Philip’s passion to elevate the caliber of house wines, and supported by an extraordinary labor of time, talent and resources.  The Breakers debuted its first custom-blended house wines in 2004, and they have been re-blended annually ever since.  In 2014, a new partnership began with Mas la Chevaliere, a vineyard in the Languadoc region of the South of France near Béziers.   Virginia and her fellow team members burrow in the winery’s tasting room to blend and re-blend each variation of wine until the house wines are absolutely perfect.  The Breakers’ four house varietals —  Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon — are poured at its nine restaurants, in-room dining, and served at hundreds of premium banquet events.  In all, 40,000 custom-crush bottles are opened each year.
