Experience: Rest and Relaxation at The Omphoy Resort & Spa

Recently, I had the pleasure of staying at The Omphoy Resort and Spa in Palm Beach, Florida. The moment you walk through the door, you can sense that everything at this property is designed to reduce your stress and help you unwind… and it’s spectacular. Strategically located right on the beach, even the name “Omphoy” signals its purpose.

A combination of the Hindi word “Om”, meaning “peace” and the Celtic word “phoy” meaning “gift”, the resort is well-named. From the warm woods to the way that the light is engineered to highlight the design elements, the property has been designed for rest and relaxation. The food is excellent. Another diner suggested that I order the avocado filled with crab, I did, and it was delicious. The breakfast buffet is not to be missed; with a wide variety of fresh-cut fruit, egg-white frittata, and three different kinds of artisanal muffins, this buffet is a perfect beginning to a restful day. The instant juice machine provides an additional dimension of health by offering a potent Vitamin C infusion to help kick your day off right.

The view from the balcony of my room was amazing, somehow providing views of both moonrise and sunrise. The design of the suite is special, as well, with a suspended beam at the head and the foot of the bed, draped to appear as a four-poster. The bathroom design was one of the most high-styled I have ever experienced in a hotel—very dramatic. White fixtures contrast with the dark wood to make a dramatic statement, though I had a bit of a problem getting in and out of the bathtub, because the sides were so deep.

Also not to be missed is the onsite spa. Though the spa is small, it offers a wide variety of services, including eight different kinds of facials (one for teens and one for men), eight types of massage and two body wraps, plus integrative medicine, organic, and med-spa offerings. I was surprised to see a long list of waxing and nail services too. The spa even offers massages after 8 p.m. for late arriving guests. No matter what you’re looking for in a spa, this one appears to have it (a sauna in the ladies locker room too).

Looking for a great place for R&R? You’ll definitely find it at The Omphoy.
