4 luxurious hotels in Florida’s Palm Beaches

Florida’s Palm Beaches is comprised of 38 towns and cities that make up Palm Beach County including Palm Beach, West Palm, Jupiter, and Boca Raton. It’s a destination filled with luxury resorts, world class shopping, fine dining, and 47 miles of beaches along the Atlantic Ocean.

Drive down the segment of A1A known as Millionaire’s Row to see extravagant mansions owned by dignitaries, celebrities and CEO’s on one side, and the sparkling sea opposite. Keep going all the way to Boca Raton, stopping at Boynton Beach and colorful Delray Beach for some east Florida charm. The Palm Beaches, established in 1834, is one of the first resort destinations in the US. It’s a place with history and fresh, vibrant energy too. There are a variety of beautiful luxury hotels to choose from; here is a selection of four top rated options mixing traditional Palm Beach with modern opulence.

Four Seasons Palm Beach

The Four Seasons Palm Beach is a five star hotel that exceeds expectation. As soon as you walk in the door, everything is taken care of for you and worries fall by the wayside as the welcoming staff anticipates your needs before you even think of them. An elegant beachy décor in silver, white and blue hues is modern and fresh. The magic of this hotel is that it manages to be sleek and ultra luxurious but at the same time, very easy going and relaxed. Everywhere you go, a friendly staff member makes you feel at ease while the surroundings soothe the soul.

Four Seasons Palm Beach Pool

Put the kids in the complimentary Kid’s Club and visit the gorgeous spa for a signature Ocean Bliss massage. Then go have lunch at the Atlantic Bar and Grill on the beach with views of bright orange beach umbrellas against a backdrop of turquoise and cobalt seawater. This unassuming al fresco restaurant has amazing food, like their Blackened Tilapia Sandwich with local plantains and killer Key Lime Pie. On weekends, you can even get fresh coconut water straight out of the coconut. Jove offers an upscale dining experience with its fun metallic atmosphere and Italian themed menu.

This resort is great for active people. Get a complimentary beach bike—and not just any beach bike, but a luxurious bright green Electra Townie cruiser to ride around town. Swim laps in the pool until 9 am, after that it becomes a family friendly spot with people splashing in the water and relaxing poolside. You can also hop on a Wave Runner, take surfing lessons, paddle board, or chill out on a float with rentals available at the stand on the beach. The Four Seasons Palm Beach has something wonderful for everyone and is so fabulous it’s painful to leave.

The Brazilian Court Hotel

The Brazilian Court is an intimate AAA Four-Diamond boutique hotel that offers quiet tropical luxury. Spanish-Mediterranean architecture surrounds two beautiful courtyards filled with lush plants. The pool area is especially relaxing. Dark wood, regal colors, and Provence-style wood shutters in the rooms combined with banana and palm tree fronds lend a feeling of escape, as though you are in a secret hideaway.

The hotel is known for its restaurant, Cafe Boulud, created by celebrity chef Daniel Boulud. Walk two blocks to Worth Avenue, for exclusive luxury shopping, art galleries and fine dining. The hotel is also just a couple of blocks from the ocean. They offer complimentary beach chairs, umbrellas and even a ride to the beach in the hotel’s BMW.

The Chesterfield

Modeled after an English bed and breakfast inn, The Chesterfield is another AAA Four-Diamond boutique hotel located just two blocks from Worth Avenue and the ocean. It is a registered historic property in a posh neighborhood setting perfect for evening strolls.

Chesterfield Palm Beach suite

Each room is unique with its own personality, some with pops of color and some in elegant black and white. A combination of safari animals and English equestrian artwork reflects the owners’ South African and British background. Enjoy Afternoon Tea in the library or relax by the pool nestled in a quaint little courtyard. Stanley Tucci, Isabella Rossellini, Lauren Bacall, and Margaret Thatcher are among notable guests who have enjoyed the charm of The Chesterfield’s cozy atmosphere.

Boca Raton Resort & Club

A massive, sprawling 356-acre property, the Boca Raton Resort and Club offers old world charm on one side of the intracoastal waterway, and modern elegance on the other. Choose from several architecturally different accommodation styles including the Yacht Club, Bungalows, the Tower, Beach Club and more traditional rooms in the main building known as “The Cloister,” designed by famous Palm Beach architect Addison Mizner in 1926. A complimentary shuttle or boat will take you back and forth, and you may use all amenities no matter where you stay.

Boca Raton Resort Club Boca Spa

The Boca Beach Club is the modern beachside part of the resort. Rooms are fresh with luxe style, easy access to the ocean and beautiful views.

    Excellent information, as usual. I always wanted stay at the Boca Hotel. Maybe I’ll try it now. They seem to have expanded in many ways since I was in Boca many years ago.
