It’s official: The Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach is moving ahead with a large renovation project that’s been in the works for a few years. Just announced, the multimillion-dollar makeover will shutter the resort on May 29, right after the Memorial Day holiday weekend, with construction to last the duration of the summer. The officially press release describes the project as “inspired by Palm Beach’s relaxed yet glamorous resort style and the heritage of the famously elegant island.”
The renovation is being overseen by designer Martin Brudnizki and architect Leo Daly. Expected to reopen in November, the resort is open for bookings starting November 1.
What’s in store at this 24-year-old icon? Redesigned landscape architecture by Fernando Wong will contribute to a new arrival experience. Channeling a “coastal laid-back lifestyle”, guest rooms will be redesigned in a residential style with new bathrooms, balconies, and all the latest technology. The resort will also introduce a new category of first floor rooms with extended balconies and direct pool access.
A big focus will be the beach experience, which will be enhanced by remodeling the pool deck, dotted with teak chairs and cabanas, and adding an additional, adults-only pool. Last but not least: The Four Seasons Palm Beach is upping its gourmet game with a new signature restaurant in partnership with a Michelin-starred chef; expect a show kitchen, cocktail lounge and outdoor dining terrace. There will also be a new beachfront restaurant. Stay tuned for more details!
