The Four Seasons Palm Beach Resort isn't just for visitors. Many residents book the hotel for a yearly staycation or to host a high-end wedding or important business meeting. As if it weren't luxury enough, the Four Seasons is closing down at the end of May for a full-body renovation inside and out.
For starters there will be a can't-miss feature right outside the front door: a 5-story, 45-foot wide Banyan Tree picked out by landscape architect Fernando Wong. He said he wanted to make a bold statement upon entrance and selected the 100+ year old tree as the focal point. The tree is currently rooted in Tequesta and it is so large that it will have to be transported in five parts.
Guest rooms will be totally redesigned and have bigger, better, and more beautiful balconies with teak wood hand rails and pale-colored tropical tiles. A new type of first-floor room will have extended balconies leading directly to the pool, while upper level guests will also have direct access to the pool with new exterior stairways.
Speaking of the pool, a second one is being put in for adults only! The pool deck is getting totally redone too, adding cabanas, aesthetic furniture, and a brand new poolside bar with an oceanfront view.
A new signature restaurant will have an open kitchen, grandiose lounge and bar, and a "pergola-style" dining terrace outside.
The Four Seasons Resort is getting a makeover you not only get to see but also get to experience with features like a new pool, bar, restaurant and more. Its reopening in the fall is a good excuse for residents to take a weekend away from the kids (but not too far) and for northerners to take a trip to Florida.
