The Breakers has been a Palm Beach landmark since railroad tycoon Henry Flagler first unveiled the resort in 1896. But the Florida oceanfront resort doesn’t rest on its laurels. The family which owns The Breakers invests a minimum of $30 million each year in capital improvements, and the new amenities are getting quite the buzz. There’s now a boutique “hotel within a hotel” called Flagler Club, and an impressive new indoor-outdoor spa.

The Breakers recruited top spa designer Sylvia Sepielli, responsible for the magnificent spas at The Gainsborough Bath Spa and Zurich’s Dolder Grand, to work on the spa renovation along with Peacock + Lewis Architects and landscape architect Gregory Lombardi Design. The result is a luxurious new destination spa to complement the 6,000-square-foot Ocean Fitness, the top-notch gym which opened a year ago.
