THE MAKEOVER AT THE FOUR SEASONS
The Four Seasons Palm Beach closes for renovations May 28, after the Memorial Day weekend, with construction scheduled to begin in June. The property is scheduled to reopen this fall.
“Right now, we are taking reservations as of Nov. 1,” says Laurie Herrick, the resort’s public relations director.
Here are some quick facts about the property’s planned projects, to be carried out by architect Leo Daly and interior designer Martin Brudnizki:
The new signature restaurant will trace the full width of the main resort structure, according to a Four Seasons news release. It will boast an open kitchen, a grand bar and lounge, as well as a pergola-style dining terrace outside. The resort’s beachfront restaurant will be refurbished and rebranded, as well.
The pool deck will be completely redone and a second (adults only) pool will be added. The deck will be dotted with new cabanas, teak lounge chairs and pool umbrellas appointed with gathered pink fabric.
Redesigned guest rooms will showcase hand-tufted wool rugs and custom silk-patterned wall coverings. Teak handrails and pale green cement tiles will frame the redone balconies. The resort will add a new category of firstfloor guest rooms that feature extended balconies leading directly to the pool.
Acclaimed landscape architect Fernando Wong aims to make a dramatic statement at the resort’s entrance – it will be anchored by a five-story, 45-foot-wide banyan tree. Presently rooted in Tequesta, the tree is so mammoth that it will be transported in five parts and reassembled.
