Philosophy of Nature


Nature is what inspires everything we do at The Palms Hotel & Spa, from the décor to products & services offered to our core company values. Our commitment to preserving the environment and to care for the world we live is expressed in all elements of our guest experience, and beyond into the local community.

Nature inspires our décor

The tropical climate, exotic flowers, palms and trees in the gardens, the proximity to the crystalline waters of the Atlantic Ocean, the white sandy beaches, marine life and dune vegetation surrounding our sanctuary – all influence our décor and ambiance. Natural products are used wherever possible, and many furnishings feature patterns and colors inspired by the environment surrounding the property

Nature inspires our cuisine                

Essensia Restaurant & Lounge’s natural gourmet cuisine follows a farm-to-table philosophy, offering a seasonal selection of wholesome global cuisine with emphasis on premium local and sustainable ingredients. Working with local farmers and carefully selected purveyors, including an on-site Chef’s Organic garden, The Palms’ signature restaurant provides healthful and flavorful dishes made with locally sourced ingredients, sourced in a vibrant and distinguished style.

 Nature inspires our spa                     

The hotel’s Aveda lifestyle spa is a 5,000-square foot facility, featuring holistic treatments and rituals set to deliver a highly personalized experience to pamper and relax with natural and botanically derived Aveda products. All Aveda products are made of pure flower and plant essences, largely organic and in tune with the environment as per Aveda’s core mission “care for the world we live in, from the products we make to the ways we give back to society”.
