We wrapped up our week in South Florida at what I truly feel is Florida’s hidden GEM!! This place is nothing short of spectacular from the design aspect, all the way down to the aroma throughout the property! If Hutchinson Shores Resort isn’t on your bucket list yet, I can guarantee it will be by the end of this post!
Walking in to HSR, we were greeted by beautifully sculpted pieces of sand art, massive ceilings, and a breath of Opal Collection’s signature scent filling the air, mixed with a salty ocean breeze! The front desk attendants were all as friendly as can be with huge smiles and giving the Palm Beach County vibe in my all time fav-Lilly Pulizter! These girls definitely added a little extra spunk to our check in and had us ready to play!
We were so lucky to experience a full tour of the resort, getting a bit more knowledge about it’s inspiration, the process behind the carefully selected design, and we even snacked on freshly baked cookies that are delivered daily to each floor’s guest pantry!
HSR definitely blows away most other resorts we’ve stayed at with their attention to detail! Even outside of the resort’s lobby and guest rooms were so many details that set HSR apart from other resorts! We spent a ton of time in the pool area and down on the beach because of the activities and play areas for kids young and old! We were obsessed with the sand art that surrounded the sand castle pit and beach games!
Of course with long days in the sun and splashing in the pool, the boys were hungry…often! So, we paired our play time with amazing meals from Hutchinson Shores Resort’s very own DRIFT Kitchen + Bar and Reflections Pool Bar (we mayyy have also had a few sips from the Dunes Bar as well!).
The poolside dining here was the boys’ favorite! They love having lunch by the pool so they don’t have to change in and out of their swimsuits for a meal! Just because they’re sticklers for munching in swim suits doesn’t mean we don’t like upscale dining with amazing views! James and I were obsessed and completely enamored by the beautiful wall to wall windows in DRIFT Kitchen + Bar and their daily house made pastas!
From breakfast parfaits to brick oven pizza and seafood entrees, DRIFT kills the kitchen game! Everything we ate was full of flavor and aromas we’ve never experienced before!
When staying at an oceanfront resort like HSR and after exhausting your body of all the sun and sand it can possibly take in a single day, a clean guest room comfortable beds and linens is something we all crave! Had the beach and pool not been calling us to wake up and play every day, we would have stayed in bed relaxing for the entire length of our entire trip! K and I cuddled in the uber plushy robes while James took in the ocean views with Col on the balcony! The design and detailing in the guest rooms had me ready to come home and remodel our entire house off of Hutchinson Shores’ guest room design!
This resort topped our list when it comes to guest services, design, and overall luxury! We can’t wait to be back!!
