Hutchinson Shores Resort & Spa
by Roberta B. Turner

Hutchinson Shores Resort & Spa is located just north of Palm Beach on Florida’s Treasure Coast. This oceanside resort is a combination of a beachside retreat and Florida luxury.  Florida’s Treasure Coast is home to some of the state’s most beautiful beaches, and Hutchinson Shores Resort is just steps from Jensen Beach’s pristine sand and surf and the Atlantic Ocean.  The resort offers beach attendants and beach service.

This AAA Four-Diamond hotel has 178 guest rooms and suites with an interior design that reflects the ocean’s colors of blue, green and pearl. The rooms are appointed with modern amenities and offer a variety of views from oceanside to poolside.

The interior design of the resort is unique from the moment you enter the lobby and are greeted by a living greenery wall, random pieces of driftwood, and a glass swordfish sculpture in the center of it all.

In addition to the beach, the resort offers a choice of two different pools.

Reflections Pool offers families a sun-drenched pool deck, complete with a hot tub and pool bar. Poolside pergolas are available for daily rentals and feature an outdoor living space design, complete with lounge furniture, and provides shade from the sun. The Dune Pool is a secluded beachside heated pool, centrally located in front of Drift Kitchen and Bar, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.

Drift Kitchen and Bar presents a contemporary al fresco and indoor dining environment overlooking the Atlantic Ocean featuring freshly-caught seafood, prime cuts, delicious  salads and house-made pastas. Families enjoy poolside dining at Reflections Pool Bar with an all-day menu featuring an assortment of light bites, sandwiches, burgers, wraps and a children’s menu.  Adult guests enjoy the Dune Beach Bar for light bites and cocktails.

Hutchinson Shores Resort provides guests with a full fitness studio to enjoy in addition to The Opal Spa. Treatments include signature massages, facials, reflexology sessions and ocean-inspired body treatments in the nine-treatment room boutique spa.

The resort also features weekly activities for guests to enjoy and include a sandcastle building contest, scavenger hunts, dive-in movies, yoga and various other activities.

The resort’s location provides a variety of attractions, museums and outdoor activities guests can enjoy, including golf, surfing, kayaking, snorkeling, boat tours, art galleries, museums, a mall and Downtown Stuart.
