2. Tell us what is so special about this location.
SINGER ISLAND was first settled by the Seminoles in the mid-1800s, and modern-day Singer Island was named after Palm Beach developer Paris Singer, a son of the Singer Sewing Machine magnate Isaac Singer, who built a home in Palm Beach in 1917 and picnicked on the island with friends. The island is about five miles long and half a mile wide and enhanced by parks, marinas, hiking and bike paths, as well as 4.7 miles (7.6 km) of white sand beach. Today, Singer Island is a picturesque, upscale, and pristine residential destination, longtime home to professional golfer Michelle McGann, and rocker and E Street Band member Clarence Clemons. Singer Island is the setting of several Fredrick Exley novels.

Amrit Ocean Resort & Residences, where Eastern principles and Western luxury meet and where spirituality and science, ancient wisdom and modern technology unite, offers a new paradigm of mindful living with unlimited potential. Amrit is purpose built to offer both residents & guest inspiration, guidance, and the means to embark on a personalized path towards greater physical and mental well-being.

Amrit has been developing its programs over the past several years by partnering with experts such as spa designer/consultants, Susan Harmsworth, founder of ESPA International and Amy McDonald founder of Under a Tree and the renowned Himalayan Institute, a leader in the field of yoga, meditation, spirituality, and holistic health.

Amrit blends technology and mind/body therapies to offer a customized, immersive 24/7 experience designed around the Five Pillars of Wellness: Nutrition, Fitness, Mindfulness, Relaxation, and Sleep.
