What’s So Great About Jupiter, Florida – II

This post originally posted HERE on June 2, 2015

The start of summer is upon us! If you’re a regular reader of this blog you know I’m kind of obsessed with my home town Jupiter, Florida. Living and working in this town is really great! However, sometimes I forget to take time to actually enjoy all the wonderful things and places our little town has to offer. So for the last couple of weeks, I’ve made a point to enjoy a little bit of our local flavor!

The juices at 3 Natives are so yummy! My favorite is the “Lean & Green”.

We caught The Helmsman at Harbourside Place the other night. It was quite lovely!

I’ve enjoyed several classes lately at Kula Yoga Shala. It’s an awesome studio here in Jupiter!

Not in Jupiter, but just a short drive away, we enjoyed lunch at Sailfish Marina.

I know it’s hard to believe that someone living in Jupiter, Florida would ever want to leave! This year, 2015, is the year my closest girlfriends all turn 40. We all decided to meet up and celebrate together, with a few other friends and all our husbands. Our destination, Costa d’ Este, Beach Resort & Spa in Vero Beach, Florida.

They prefer the guests stay out of the fountain, but it sure is tempting!

From their site:

“As a top ten celebrity-owned hotel of the world*, Costa d’Este Beach Resort & Spa is a haven from the ordinary. The twin five-story, Miami modern inspired towers define chic sophistication with sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean. Costa d’Este Beach Resort & Spa offers the pinnacle of unpretentious luxury for the most sophisticated travelers and laid-back beach enthusiasts alike. Vero Beach, Florida is often referred to as the “Hamptons of Miami.” This unaffected resort town offers the experience of Florida of yesteryear, with shorelines that still reflect an unprecedented natural integrity.”

For several years now I’ve had a thing for boutique hotels. The Costa d’ Este is now one of my favorites! The style of the hotel, the amazing food, the super friendly staff, the gorgeous pool, our ocean view room (LOVE), being beachside, and the complimentary mojitos all help you feel pampered and relaxed!

We spent a good portion of our day lounging at the pool.

Located right in the heart of Ocean Drive Shopping District, there are a ton of cute little boutique stores and many restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. Although, you may not even want to leave. We enjoyed the most delicious breakfast at the The Wave Kitchen & Bar, right in the hotel. Be sure and try the Cuban inspired Eggs Benedict…it is amazing!!

I highly recommend upgrading to the oceanview rooms. You can’t beat that view!
