Many of the properties on our short list of world class resorts in the United States that offer top-notch style and service are lacking in character and ultimately turn out to be not much fun. We recently found one, The Resort at Singer Island, that not only lives up to our high expectations, but also impressed us with a high "fun factor". This atmosphere at this exceptional resort, complete with excellent dining, two great pools, and an oceanfront location, is equal parts family friendly and stylishly cosmopolitan. Located on the wide sandy beaches of Singer Island, in Palm Beach County, Florida, this 239 one- and two-bedroom suite resort offers the jet-set traveler the perfect getaway with the added benefit of exceptionally easy access. The Singer Island Resort is perfect for an East Coaster's long weekend getaway, especially when they feel the urge to escape winter’s chill. Many Floridians have found that the simple life on Singer Island, far from the tourist-driven overcrowded beaches, offers them the luxury and pampering of a classic Florida resort without the hassle of traffic jams and tiny guest rooms.

Upon your arrival at the towering resort, a sense of grandeur nearly intimidates first time visitors. Once inside the bright multi-story lobby, however, guests are welcomed by the dramatic décor in warm tones, natural woods, and stunning backlit onyx panels that glow in the evenings. By any standard, the handsome suites at the resort are spacious, and their classically modern décor is both visually exciting yet warmly welcoming. The suites' high-tech kitchens feature stainless-steel appliances, granite counter tops, European wood cabinetry and cookware, and dishes fit for gourmet chefs. Modern amenities, including large LCD TVs complete with Bose CD/DVD players ensure that downtime spent in your suite will be comfortable and relaxing. Each suite is outfitted with a washer and dryer, making your home away from home complete. Luxurious amenities, including plush linens, an exceptionally comfortable pillow top mattress and down pillows, await guests in the bedrooms. From the lobby to the suites - and even in health club and corridors - the fine design and attention to detail is evident and soothing in its thoroughness.

For many travelers the most important features at an oceanfront resort includes dining and outdoor activities. In these aspects, The Resort at Singer Island will please gourmets and thrill-seekers alike. The infinite pool that overlooks the atlantic Ocean, complete with spa tub pools and crisp cabanas, is a refined retreat, as is the wide beach just a few steps down the stairs. The resort's oversized lagoon pool is a riotous blast, from the sloped entry to the torrential waterfall that pummels the calm waters below. Here, there is something for everyone to enjoy. The pool's most popular feature is an exciting waterslide that deposits kids of all ages into the refreshing waters below. Guests should pamper themselves in the exclusive 8,500-square foot SiSpa, a member of Starwood Spa Collection, and treat themselves to an ocean view massage or some of the other exceptional treatment offerings.

The Resort at Singer Island takes the luxury of fine dining to a new level at Solu, an Asian Infused Caribbean Grill that features an seasonal menu with emphasis on seafood and the freshest ingredients fused with a blend of clean, focused Asian inspired flavors. For lighter fare overlooking the atlantic Ocean, guests can enjoy The Reef, which is also a perfect spot for sunset cocktails. The Lagoon Grill poolside serves a great lunch, colorful cocktails and perhaps the island's best burgers. Guests can enjoy the intimate ambience of a city nightclub and signature cocktails at Run Bar, which comes alive at happy hour and again after dinner. There is a lot to enjoy at this stylish resort and guests who find that a visit is not enough, luxury condos at the resort are available.
