I recently got to spend a super day at the PGA National Resort and Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida with my friend Liz. Liz lives in Miami and we don’t get to see each other too often so a spa day in Palm Beach Gardens sounded perfect to us! I was even more excited to find out about the fabulous Girl’s Day Out package that the spa currently has!
For just $99 you’ll get to spend the day using the spa facilities, get a mini treatment (your choice of mani/pedi, mini massage, mini facial or salt glo), lunch, babysitting for the day and the use of the famous Waters of the World Pools! Amazing, right? The babysitting is provided by the kid’s club at the resort and I think is worth the $99 on its own probably! Add in the spa facilities, a great lunch and your treatment and I couldn’t believe there wasn’t a waiting list.
Liz and I got to the spa first thing in the morning and got a great tour of the property. The resort pool is zero entry and is breathtaking. The resort is undergoing a massive renovation this summer and I can only image that it will get even better than it already is!
The hotel lobby has a bar right in the middle of it and once per month is the venue for a Girl’s Night out, a free event to showcase local boutiques. I loved the modern decor and it didn’t have a stuffy vibe like some other hotel lobbies have.
The spa entryway was modern and welcoming. The salon is one side and the spa is on the other. We were checked in very efficiently and welcomed warmly by all of the staff we encountered.
They have a really cute boutique in the entryway where all of the creams and treatments are for sale as well as some fun Lily Pulitzer clothing. The selection was really nice for a small spa shop and Liz even bought a bright Lily Pulitzer bathing suit during her visit!
The spa’s signature scent is a fresh apricot and I was able to try out the products in the shower. I LOVED them and was excited to see them for sale in the spa shop as well. They smelled super yummy and I loved how my hair and skin felt after my shower.
There is a female lounge as well as a co-ed lounge where they had teas and fruit available. The locker room was large and the lockers had our robes waiting in them. We both had booked massages a la carte from the Girl’s Day Out Package and had those first. The treatment rooms were decent sized and I had a great massage! After the massage I waited a few minutes in the lounge and was called for my mini-facial. The mini facial was part of the Girl’s Day Out package and was 25 minutes. There was no steam or extraction but I got a great head, face and arm massage as well as some helpful skincare treatments. I left feeling very refreshed! I then went out to the Waters of the World pool area.
The pool area was phenomenal. There was staff at your beckon call, getting towels, adjusting umbrellas, providing water, etc. There were 3 pools and a spa outside. One pool was a regular pool and the other 2 pools had imported minerals – one from the dead sea and the other with sea salt from the Pyrenees in France. This was very unusual and it felt great soaking in the two specialty pools.
Each pool was its own temperature and we spent several hours soaking and getting some sun and shade. We were served our lunch at the pool – with the Girl’s Day Out Package comes your choice of 2 courses. I chose the shrimp gazpacho and the tuna salad sandwich. Liz chose the turkey wrap and the key lime dessertini. Our food was very yummy and healthy and it was nice to share a meal outdoors.
At the end of the day we went back into the locker room area and took the BEST shower I have ever had in these showers. We got to use the apricot scented shampoo and shower gel and found our goodie bags which contained travel sizes of the apricot scented items – yay!
We both left totally relaxed and recharged. Liz told me she had a fabulous day and her favorite part was the dead sea pool and the steam room. We have already made plans to go back and do another Girl’s Day Out at the Spa at PGA National!

PGA National Resort & Spa was kind enough to provide complimentary Girl’s Day Out packages for myself and my guest. All opinions are 100% my own!
