The color palate of the suites and rooms are vibrant and reminiscent of Santorini meeting Capri and landing in Palm Beach. For pure comfort with beach front access, let us book you an Eau Lanai Terrace Suite overlooking the ocean with easy access to both pools, so you can simply walk out of your room right onto your private oceanfront paradise. This resort is all about enjoying the sunshine and the Atlantic Ocean, so hang out on the huge oceanfront terrace with firepit, book a beach cabana for some pampering, or partake in the available aquatic sports, boating, fishing and three Har-Tru tennis courts.

What we love about Eau (meaning water in French) is their commitment to sustainability. They have partnered with Loggerhead Marinelife Center, whose mission is 'To promote conservation of ocean ecosystems with a special focus on threatened and endangered sea turtles'.
