Luxetips Travel! Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island Beach Resort & Spa: Luxury, Natural Wonders, and Superb Service
Life is fleeting and precious. Each day commit to do something in fulfillment of your dreams.
I am so missing my family’s Spring Break vacation in a major way. It was the absolute best family vacation we ever had. The number 1 reason it was so awesome is because we kicked it off with a stay at the luxurious and most hospitable Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island Beach Resort & Spa. While there, we experienced the best customer service ever, perfect luxury, superb dining and the best natural wonder experience in the U.S.
The Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island Beach Resort & Spa located on Singer Island is a 5 star resort boasting the only all suite property on the island, a pristine private beach that is home to nesting Loggerhead and Leatherback turtles and an award winning restaurant featuring a 300 bottle wine list.
First, the Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island Beach Resort & Spa is a gorgeous property. When you enter the lobby you are greeted with gorgeous decor and stunning views of the private beach and ocean. In addition, the lobby and other areas of the resort are filled with the best aromatherapy you can imagine. The scent is luscious and puts you in a relaxed mood.
After checking in, I was fortunate to have a superb lunch at the award winning 3800 Ocean restaurant. The restaurant decor is simply fab! More importantly, having a meal at 3800 Ocean restaurant is the ultimate dining with a view experience.
Stunning. While dining, you can see the resort’s private beach, Reef tiki bar huts and the natural reef, which is the third largest reef in the world and attracts divers from all over.
The food at 3800 Ocean is fantastic! I had this Kale salad with a nice welcome mimosa. Delish!
The restaurant has a full chef staff and guests can have a special private and custom meal at the Chef’s table. The meal is created based on your preferences and can be reserved via the hotel’s concierge.
After lunch, I checked out my accommodations and when I walked into my suite, it simply took my breath away. Luxury on so many levels….
Our one bedroom suite featured a beautiful kitchen with all stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and comes fully stocked with all the kitchen and dining ware you need. The suite also had a full size washer and dryer, which certainly came in handy since we were traveling as family of 6.
The suite also has a pull out sofa included in the full living area.
The bedroom was simply beautiful. The bed was the most comfortable bed ever with plush bedding and pillows. While sleeping in the bed, I felt like I was wrapped in a cocoon.
The bathroom was equally as stunning. It was open, airy and featured a full deep spa tub, a separate shower big enough to fit a small family 🙂 and luxury cotton towels and amenities.
After checking out our accommodations, we ventured down to check out the property’s pools and hot tubs. The resort has two pools, an infinity pool with a view of the ocean and the lagoon pool that features waterfalls and slides. It is the perfect place for kids and for adults to lounge and enjoy the sun.
In addition to the 3800 Ocean restaurant, the Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island Beach Resort & Spa also has two other more casual dining options: The Reef Tiki bar featuring the cutest tiki huts and my favorite, the Lagoon Cantina.
The Lagoon Cantina is located at the Lagoon pool and guests can either order from their lounge chairs and have their meal and drinks brought to them or they can visit the Cantina’s bar area for casual dining. My family had a delicious lunch there of burgers, fish sandwiches and chicken fingers. Yum! The adults had the absolute best drink called the Leblon Caipirinha. It was so delicious and refreshing, I can’t wait to go back to get another one. LOL!
While at the resort, I had the opportunity to receive a tour of the property and history of Singer Island from the GM, Mr. Amidon. My time spent with Mr. Amidon was priceless. The most amazing thing he told me about the property and Singer Island is that Singer Island is the number one beach in America for nesting Loggerhead and Leatherback turtles. Who knew??? Because Palm Beach County is home to this natural wonder and phenomenon, the county has a Loggerhead Marine Life Center that boasts a world renowned turtle hospital. Injured turtles are rescued and healed at the hospital. When they are ready to get back to the ocean, the marine doctors take the turtles back to the beach and release them while onlookers cheer. Fabulous.
Mr. Amidon gave me a little tidbit that has been life changing for me and my family. He told me that the turtles usually come to the beach to nest around 10pm at night. I was so excited and told the kids lets relax and take a nap and at 10pm we are going down to the beach to see if we can see some turtles nesting on the beach.
All 6 of us walked down to the beach at 10pm and we may have walked 12 feet before we saw a huge Leatherback turtle on the beach! We were all stunned! Two Florida Wildlife officials were observing the turtle as well and we all gathered around to see this beauty.
What we saw I have only seen on the Discovery Channel. We witnessed the Leatherback turtle digging a huge hole in the sand and actually laying eggs. I could have fainted. I told my family, if we left and went back to Georgia right after this, this would be the absolute best vacation and experience of my life. Done and done.
We didn’t realize how rare this sighting was until the Wildlife officials and a couple of Palm Beach County residents witnessing this miracle with us said they all had lived in the county for 25 plus years and they had never seen this happen in real life. I knew then what we witnessed was special, rare and meant to be. We all will remember this experience for a lifetime.
The next morning, I took a brief tour of the property’s SiSpa which was recently voted by Conde Naste traveler as one of the best resort spas in the world. The spa features the one of a kind Hydra Facial and is all the rage. The spa also offers massages, scrubs, and mani/pedi services. One of the features of the spa that I loved was the private couples massage/spa room. This room features two luxury massage tables, a deep spa tub and shower. It is the perfect romantic treatment for couples. Loved it!
Lastly, I have to rant and rave about the customer service I experienced at the resort. Every and I mean every, Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island Beach Resort & Spa employee, went out of their way to ensure we all felt special…even the kids. The valet, bell hops, bartenders, waiters, concierge, front desk attendants, and pool attendants were one of a kind. And I must say I have visited and reviewed a lot of 4/5 star resorts and the customer service at this property was the absolute best I ever experienced. Seriously.
I highly highly recommend this property as a family or couple vacation option. It has so much to offer: it caters to kids and adults with the same attention to detail and as a parent I appreciate it. It is Singer Island’s best kept secret, but now the secret is out! My family and I have committed to visiting this property once a year.
