Eau Palm Beach was also awarded the Five-Star designation for its spa. The dual honor makes the resort one of only 21 properties in the United States that earned top marks for both its hotel and its spa.
“First and foremost, all credit for this tremendous achievement of Forbes Five-Star ratings for both the resort and spa goes to our immensely talented group of hoteliers. They go out of their way each day to deliver among the world’s best service to our guests and loyal members of the local community,” said Eva Hill, president, Britannia Pacific Properties, Inc., the holding company which owns the Eau Palm Beach property. “When we set out to create this independent brand, our goal was to meld the absolute best in service with the essence of the Palm Beach lifestyle and this accolade is a testament to how the Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa brand has resonated with guests both globally and locally in the Palm Beach community.”
