The AAA Four Diamond-rated Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island Beach Resort & Spa has unveiled the results of a $6.8-million renovation that has infused the popular resort with a relaxed, breezy coastal style. The new design blurs the lines between indoor and out, bringing ocean-inspired colors and textures in, while encouraging guests to step out and enjoy the fresh air and beachfront setting.
Dominating the lobby is the inviting, oval-shaped great room where, between soaring wood-paneled columns, conversational groupings of curved-back sofas, lounge chairs, and glass-topped tables encourage guests to gather for a drink or relax for a moment and charge their personal electronics while waiting for friends and family to arrive. Furnishings are light and airy, with upholstery in a textured, natural shade that evokes the Florida sand and accent pillows in ocean blues and greens. The undulating pattern of the great room’s new carpeting is reminiscent of ocean waves, creating a sense of movement that draws the eye outward to a monumental fountain, refinished in opalescent mosaic tiles, that serves as the focal point of the newly renovated patio. Here, guests can lounge al fresco under the Florida sun by day, shaded by patio umbrellas, and starry skies by night.
Floor-to-ceiling windows in the great room and in the bar and lounge flood the area in natural light by day. In the evening, lights are dimmed and the ambience transformed. At the entrance to the bar and lounge is a new communal high top for up to 14 guests, creating a relaxing space to mingle while waiting to be seated for dinner at the resort’s signature restaurant, 3800 Ocean. Charging stations throughout the bar area let patrons power up their personal electronics as they relax. Under-lighting casts the entire bar in a warm glow, while accent lights on the back bar showcase the inventory of bottles. In the lounge area, banquettes are newly upholstered in a pattern of natural and blue with deep ocean blue seats, and tufted with nail head trim. Dramatic hardwood flooring – whose stripe effect of light and dark woods recalls the deck of a vintage Chris Craft yacht – extends throughout the restaurant and lounge and has been sanded and stained to restore its original beauty.
Throughout the resort’s 193 one- and two-bedroom guest suites, thicker, more textured carpeting feels luxurious under bare feet and provides more visual interest, with a tonal effect that evokes waves and sand. Walls have been painted in clean white, and sofas and lounge chair fabrics are soft and subtle for a relaxed, coastal feel. New throw pillows with a turtle pattern are inspired by Singer Island’s resident sea turtle population. (They are also a nod to the resort’s ongoing support of the nearby Loggerhead Marine Life Center, through sales of plush turtles that are displayed in-room.) In the guest bedrooms of two-bedroom suites, beds are set against a bold photo mural of driftwood rising out of the sea. The water is tinted bright turquoise in an otherwise black-and-white scene, providing a jolt of color that carries through in the turquoise throw pillows adorning the crisp white bed linens. All guest patios retain their original teak outdoor furniture.
Perfect for sophisticated meetings, social events and once-in-a-lifetime wedding celebrations, the resort’s 3,600-square-feet of meeting and event space have also been refreshed. Spaces include the 1,631-square-foot Colonnade Ballroom, the Flagler Boardroom, Singer, Mizner and MacArthur meeting rooms. New carpeting gives the rooms a sense of depth, movement and water, and walls have been lightened to be more inviting.
