Amrit Ocean Resort, a luxury beachfront wellness resort located in Singer Island of Palm Beach County, recently opened. Spanning seven beachfront acres along the Atlantic Ocean, this wellness-focused property merges Eastern principles with Western luxury. 

Meaning “elixir of life” in Sanskrit, Amrit (pronounced Ahm-rit) is a transformative wellness retreat where all offerings are rooted in five pillars of wellness: mindfulness, nutrition, fitness, relaxation, and sleep. These guiding principles inspire all areas of the property, including Amrit Wellness & Spa, which includes 103,000 square feet of spa and wellness facilities spanning four floors; 155 wellness-inspired guest rooms; five dining concepts; and more than 10,000 square feet of event and meeting spaces.

Conceptualized by architecture firm S&E Architects and interior design firm Bilkey Llinas Design, the resort exudes tranquility and elegance through every bespoke detail. Managed by hospitality and management company, Highgate, Amrit is part of the Preferred Hotels & Resorts L.V.X. collection, representing renowned properties that feature the finest accommodations coupled with attentive, engaging, and exclusive personal service. 

“After much anticipation, we are thrilled to officially open our doors and invite visitors from near and far to experience a true fusion of wellness and luxury at Amrit Ocean Resort,” says Reggie Cooper, general manager at Amrit Ocean Resort. “Amrit is the next generation of luxury wellness resorts, and we are excited to enhance our guests’ minds, bodies, and spirits. After two decades of dedication by the Barot family, their vision for a place designed to enrich lives through the engagement of the five pillars of wellness and collaborating with personalized wellness coaches, has finally come to life. Many developers have aspired to create this next-generation space, yet few possess the visionary insight required to reach this point.”


Amrit offers 155 wellness-inspired guest rooms, including 25 suites, many featuring oversized balconies with views of the Atlantic. Additionally, Amrit offers 40 luxury two-bedroom sky villas, which boast panoramic views of the Atlantic and Intracoastal Waterway and oversized balconies. Room amenities include a rain shower and soaking tub, luxury bath salts, soaps and scrubs, lit makeup and shaving mirrors, custom Amrit spa robes and slippers, in-room dining services, yoga mats, wellness mini bars, turndown service, and access to daily scheduled fitness and wellness activities.


Considered the heart of the resort, Amrit’s four-story, indoor-outdoor spa and wellness facility offers bespoke experiences and services encompassing the five pillars of wellness. Amrit is revolutionizing the wellness experience using a combination of European, Chinese, and Indian wellness traditions and techniques, including exclusive offerings such as the firstindoor-outdoor hydrothermal water therapy circuit in Florida and one of the few luxury hammams in South Florida. Additionally, Amrit has collaborated with board-certified physicians and medical practitioners to offer integrated wellness assessments and services. Amrit Wellness & Spa also features two retail concepts—Codage Paris and Biologique Recherche. Select programs are supported by Amrit’s exclusive, patented Personal Wellness Support System (PWSS). For those looking to enjoy Amrit’s wellness offerings and hotel amenities on a regular basis, a Wellness Club Membership is available.

Integrated Wellness Services

Amrit Wellness & Spa also offers integrated health offerings, including targeted health assessments in personal wellness, nutrition, Bio-Well energy flow, metabolic fitness, and more, conducted by on-site certified experts who assist guests in creating their personal wellness roadmap. After the assessment, personal wellness guides recommend one or more of Amrit’s Integrated wellness services, such as flotation therapy, acupuncture, sound wave therapy, color and light therapy, Tibetan sound bowl chakra balancing, and Ayurvedic treatments such as abhyanga, shirodhara, and udvartana massages, among others. Amrit also offers infusion therapy in a dedicated infusion lounge in partnership with Dr. Ara Suppiah, a functional sports medicine doctor who utilizes IV infusions to assist with performance and recovery.
