The Palm Beaches in Florida announces the return of its Spatober wellness month. Taking place throughout the month of October, Spatober offers pop-up events, healthy dining deals and spa and wellness offerings at venues throughout Palm Beach County. The wellness event returns after a two-year hiatus.
“Since we last held Spa & Wellness Month in 2019, the pandemic has greatly inspired many of us to prioritize wellness, with a greater focus on taking the time to recharge mind, body and soul. Several of our legendary resorts and luxury spas have undergone significant renovations with new enhancements that focus on wellness therapies and expanded facilities,” said Jorge Pesquera, CEO, Discover The Palm Beaches. “We’re excited to have Spatober return, allowing everyone the opportunity to experience some of the fresh new offerings available throughout America’s First Resort Destination.”
This year’s event focuses on self-care and general wellness, with a variety of reformative experiences of serenity and relaxation. Enjoy a kick-off party at Eau Palm Beach on Oct. 3 at 9 a.m. Take advantage of special treatments and deals from hotel spas throughout the region, including Tideline Ocean Resort & Spa, The Seagate Hotel & Spa and Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island Beach Resort & Spa.

Five Tips to Help Minimize Potential Travel Problems
Not a word was spoken as I settled into a cozy spot on the outdoor terrace just outside the main lodge at Volcanoes Bwindi Lodge in Uganda.

I sat among a handful of fellow adventurers, each sitting silently beneath the night sky for one collective goal. Moments earlier, we learned a troop of mountain gorillas had made their way down the mountain near our lodge, and we left our meals to instead sit in eager anticipation of hearing the guttural grunts of the primates below. The chills on my arms never left me that night, even as I made my way up a stone pathway to my personal banda (guestroom). Thankfully, sleep came quickly for me that night as I drifted into dreams of what my next day would bring.
You know what you’re going to get at an Aman hotel, and also you don’t. Expect peerless service, obsessive attention to detail, architectural elegance worthy of a fashion magazine, a holistic approach to wellness and astounding levels of comfort. But each property is also intimately connected to its setting, and that’s where the surprises lie.
