Palm Beach

Establishment neighborhood
Craft Haus
11701 Lake Victoria Gardens Ave., Palm Beach
Camp at Craft Haus means a full week of mixed-media exploration: clay, mosaic making, painting, and more, with a different theme each week. Class sizes are limited, temperatures are checked before camp starts each day, and instructors wear masks (children are not required to, though it’s recommended). But what we really love are the Art-to-Go kits—a genius way to keep kids busy in your own backyard. Let your budding artist pick a project from the shop, choose colors, and then have the goods delivered locally or opt for contactless pickup at the store.
goop MRKT
150 Royal Poinciana Plaza, Palm Beach
When the paradisiacal beach community we know as Palm Beach presented itself as the perfect location for our first in-store fitness studio, we jumped right off our rebounders and into the Royal Poinciana Plaza. goop MRKT Palm Beach packs a fitness studio, a washroom for freshening up postsweat, and instant retail gratification for anyone seeking goop goods—from activewear to detox support—all into a 1,200-square-foot space. Designers Jessica Kamel and Christina Akiskalou of Ronen Lev lent their knack for blending clean lines and natural materials to the aesthetic, creating what might just be our dream interior: a store-meets-studio that feels more like a great beach house than a retail space. Guests can sweat it out to signature Tracy Anderson Method classes FundamenTAl and MultiTAsk, as well as endorphin-boosting cardio classes with Jacquelyn Quesada (check out the details and sign up here). Then swing by (after a shower) for trunk shows, skin-care clinics, and other events. The store’s shelves reflect its dualistic nature: Rehydrate with a drink from DIRTYLEMON, pick up a box of G.Tox Detoxifying Superpowder to balance the lively Palm Beach nightlife, and stock up on clean beauty essentials…
Eau Spa
100 S. Ocean Blvd., Palm Beach
You haven’t really lived until you’ve had the Four Hands Essence Facial here; one aesthetician tends to your face, while a second specialist treats your hands, arms, feet, and legs. The Eau Naturale treatment, less over-the-top but plenty restorative, revives skin with layer upon layer of beta glucans (commonly taken in supplement form for glowy-skin support), fatty acids, ellagic acid (linked to skin elasticity), and antioxidants via beautiful, organic, botanical formulas.
The Spa – Tammy Fender
711 N. Flagler Dr., West Palm Beach
The facials at Tammy Fender’s gauzy white studio are transformative—it wouldn’t be hyperbole to say they verge on a sort of spiritual awakening. If you’re ever anywhere near Palm Beach, we recommend moving heaven and earth to make time for an appointment. Fender’s touch is nurturing, soulful, and sure, and the scent and feel of her gorgeous skin care, as well as the herbs, plant butters, clays, and flower essences she customizes for each client, are dramatically revitalizing. She has you choose (unlabeled) essential oils specifically for your treatment, a fantastic reflexologist works on your feet as the facial happens, and Fender walks you through where she sees you in that moment, mentally, physically, and emotionally. You walk out completely at peace, with the best skin of your life.
The Breakers
One S. County Rd., Palm Beach
Originally built in 1896 by railroad tycoon Henry Flagler, the Breakers is OG West Palm. Made up of one hundred and forty acres of prime beachfront, the impeccably manicured property has a real sense of history: the façade mimics an Italian villa, the lobby with its hand-painted fresco ceilings is based on the Great Hall of the Palazzo Carrega-Cataldi in Genoa, and the entryway fountain was inspired by one in a Florentine garden. Tony? Yes, but that’s the point. There are more than five hundred guest rooms on the property, and most recently they’ve opened The Flagler Club, a sort of hotel-within-the-hotel, which features just twenty-five guest rooms, is meant to feel more intimate than the rest of the property, like you’ve just checked into a friend’s guest house for the weekend. (Adam Tihany, who was responsible for The Beverly Hills Hotel, worked on the design.) The grounds are truly labyrinthine, too—with swimming pools, nine restaurants, two golf courses, and a spa. Take a break from the sun and duck into the newly revamped Ocean House, for a lobster sushi roll and the tuna poke bowl.
