Palm Beach Daily News - - TODAY -

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.
