The embodiment of luxury, Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa, has recently embarked on an extensive, multi-million-dollar re-imagination to its social spaces, on the heels of its 8th anniversary. It comes as no surprise that this oceanside retreat, which offers a quintessential, modern Palm Beach experience, has earned the prestigious Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Award for six consecutive years. Situated on seven pristine oceanfront acres, among the most beautiful stretch of beach in Palm Beach, the resort features an underwater paradise with snorkeling steps from the shore thanks to a huge coral reef which is home to thousands of colorful tropical fish, an added bonus to the relaxed glamour that is the ethos of Eau Palm Beach. The resort combines oceanfront luxury with whimsical decor by Jonathan Adler, along with impeccable service and unexpected experiences, including al fresco dining at Breeze Ocean Kitchen, the island’s only oceanfront beach restaurant, two oceanfront pools, tennis courts, state-of-the-art fitness center and world=class spa.
You may find it hard to leave your deluxe accommodations but you’d be remiss to miss dinner at Angle, an upscale contemporary American restaurant with white-glove service and a singularly seasonal focus. Led by Executive Sous Chef Matthew Gale, the menu’s inspired interpretations of classic signatures include; Filet Carpaccio with Sweet & Sour Shallot, Wasabi, Sesame, Ponzu, Wonton; 6 oz Filet Mignon with Whipped Potatoes, Asparagus, Béarnaise; Mushroom “Crepinette” with Mushroom Farce, Cabbage, Sweet Potato hash, Haricot Verts, Tomatillo; Toasted Brioche, Honey Roasted Peanuts; and Warm Duck Rillette with Pain Perdue, Pumpkin Butter, Brandied Apples, Pickled Cranberries. The dining destination features an award‐winning wine list curated by the resort’s beverage team, and a Champagne Bar, open from 5:00 p.m. until late, offering champagne-by-the-glass, craft cocktails, including tableside Manhattans and artfully crafted small bites. Angle is open for dinner Tuesday through Saturday, 5:30 – 9:30 p.m. Visit anglerestaurant.com.

Both of these destinations are a short drive/ride from Eau Palm Beach Resort.
