Standing tall in Warrior Pose never felt so peaceful. I’m not an avid yogi by any means, but with the morning sun warming my skin, the soothing sound of the waves breaking against the pristine shoreline, and the ocean breeze gently blowing through my hair, I felt completely connected in mind, body and spirit. Finding inner peace (or peace and quiet in general) is one of the most difficult things to do in a busy lifestyle.  Whether you’re balancing a family and a career, a high-stress job, or stress of everyday life, one thing most people neglect doing is taking care of themselves. Had I never visited the exquisite Jupiter Beach Resort & Spa, I may have never experienced a yoga session quite like this one – where I reconnected with myself and found that peaceful state of being.

Located on the picturesque east coast of Florida, Jupiter is located approximately halfway between Cocoa Beach and Miami. Never heard of this beach town? You’re not alone – consider Jupiter one of Florida’s most precious hidden gems and home to many famous athletes and celebrities such as; Tiger Woods, Celine Dion, Michael Jordan and Olivia Newton-John.  Jupiter attracts many for its low-key and laid back beach town vibe while still being an ideal destination for the affluent.

What makes us love Jupiter so much? Aside from the stunning beaches and endless activities and dining options, we are in love with The Jupiter Beach Resort & Spa! This resort is a luxury hideaway offering effortless elegance and casual sophistication in a tropical atmosphere. With a dedicated staff ready to serve each and every guest, it’s the simple luxuries and an “island time” pace that defines the resort. It is the place when you want to feel like no one can find you. For a local taste, it’s the perfect launch point to explore by bike, boat or board. Don’t be surprised if you fall asleep on a hammock, only to wake up and forget that you’re not in the Caribbean – it will certainly feel that way!

The resort offers 168 rooms (36 suites) plus 4 luxury Penthouse suites, and is an oceanfront property with a limestone reef shoreline. Guests have access to an intimate oceanfront pool that is complemented by a spacious Jacuzzi, comfortable hammocks, and a newly introduced fire pit on the dune overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The resort’s pool area, The Sandbar and outdoor event space underwent an extreme makeover in 2012, making it an ideal destination for outdoor weddings, events or just to enjoy the tropical setting at your leisure. The resort is also home to Sinclairs Ocean Grille – Jupiter’s only oceanfront restaurant. Also on site, guests have access to a luxurious 7,500 square foot spa with six treatment rooms for a truly relaxing and revitalizing experience.

Whether visiting Jupiter to relax at this chic resort, or explore the town a bit, there are plenty of options to get out and enjoy the Florida sunshine! When in Florida, spending a day out on the water is a must and taking a PonTiki Boat Cruise through Florida’s Intracoastal Waterway is just the thing to do! Relax on a comfortable open-air tiki bar built right into a sleek PonTiki party barge. Cruise down the coastal waters while getting some sun with a drink in hand. The island music and fun company will help you leave behind and forget about any stress in your daily life.  The PonTiki is fun for any occasion.  Launching from Guanabanas, you can hop on board for a quick sunset cruise before dinner.  All beverages are included with every cruise.
