Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa, at 100 South Ocean Boulevard in Manalapan (pictured above and below), has earned the coveted fifth star from the prestigious Forbes Travel Guide, and the Eau Spa retained the five-star rating it earned last year.
Eau Palm Beach joins The Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach as the island’s only five-star hotels. Statewide, only five other hotels can boast the honor: Acqualina Resort & Spa, the Manadarin Oriental, The Setai, and the St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort, all in Miami; and The Ritz-Carlton in Naples.
According to Forbes Travel Guide, five-star destinations must be outstanding, often iconic properties with virtually flawless service and amazing facilities. Forbes defines four-star recipients as exceptional properties, offering high levels of service and quality of facility to match.
