Concierge.com's insider take:

Palm Beach is known for many things—personal net worth that's through the stratosphere and Worth Avenue (Florida's answer to Rodeo Drive), for starters—but it has never been known for luring the younger, hip set. So, the summer 2009 introduction of the Omphoy Ocean Resort, six miles south of Worth Avenue, is noteworthy as much for what it is as where it is. Its successful reincarnation from a lackluster Hilton property to a bastion of beachy Zen attracts hipsters from New York and Europe. Leslie Schlesinger, of Palm Beach's Brazilian Court Hotel, is behind the impeccable Asia-meets–South Florida design sense here. In the guest rooms, flooring of cool metallic-hued porcelain tiles and sunny orange and blue accents complement the dark wood furnishings. Most of the 133 rooms have ocean views and balconies; connecting doors in some rooms (left over from the Hilton days) turn one-room suites into two-bedroom condo-style accommodations that are ideal for vacationing families. Bathrooms, while not overly spacious, make good use of the boxy original footprint, too, with glass and tile showers and separate toilets. The hotel is revered in Palm Beach foodie circles for famed Miami chef Michelle Bernstein's eponymous outpost, her first outside of that city. The restaurant's floor-to-ceiling windows pair dramatic ocean views with dishes such as crispy whole branzino and cioppino packed with stone crab and scallops. The only drawback to the hotel's pretty pool is that it's located on the street side of the hotel, but there's a perk for beach lovers: The hotel's stretch of sand is wider than what you find at other properties a few miles south.—Terry Ward

From the readers of Condé Nast Traveler:
At this 18-month-old "modernist, angular block," the colorful design extends from beige-and-white rooms with bronze-tile floors and beds that "seem to float" to cabanas with orange seating and electric-blue backlighting. Michelle Bernstein's Mediterranean dishes such as shrimp tiradito are served in a contemporary space with floor-to-ceiling views of the Atlantic. Exhale Spa offers fitness sessions as well as body treatments.
