Next Jet Set Destination – Brazilian Court Hotel & Beach Club
As the weather begins to turn, jet setters start fueling up for their next destination. We’ll be letting you in on some of our favorite travel spots and great deals here at HipHamptons. Our pick for fall is the Brazilian Court Hotel & Beach Club in Palm Beach which is only two blocks from the ocean and a walk to Worth Avenue’s famous five star shopping. Travel & Leisure’s World’s Best Hotels 2010 ranked them #1 in South Florida and #3 in Florida State.
It’s only a hop skip and a jump from Islip to West Palm airport and you can revive your summer tan at their swank private beach club and sun drenched highlights at their Frédéric Fekkai Salon & Spa.
If the walls could talk you’d hear echoes of Gary Cooper, Greta Garbo and Judy Garland among other luminaries who have stayed at this Palm Beach landmark hotel. The rooms have been redesigned by Florida based interior designer Leslie Schlesinger who also consulted with famed Palm Beach landscape architect Mario Nievera to preserve the hotel’s Monterrey-villa roots and blend it with the spirit of Provence and the Mediterranean.
Flowing fountains, secluded courtyards, lush pools, and old world charm with modern amenities make you feel that you’ve entered a sophisticated wonderland. And at your beck and call is a 24 hour concierge who’s there to have you at “hello.”
For New Yorkers like us who are huge fans of the award-winning chef Daniel Boulud, the Brazilian Court boasts Café Boulud serving breakfast lunch and dinner both in the elegant dining room and al fresco. Executive Chef Jim Leiken is adding his flare to the ever popular dining destination. The sexy bar is the place to sip fine wines and spirits, enjoy live music, and meet the most interesting people (shhh we won’t tell.)
While you’ll want to be enjoying all the gorgeous amenities and interior and exterior spaces of the hotel, if you’re channeling Greta Garbo and want to be alone, you can enjoy Café Boulud’s fine fare and Frédéric Fekkai Salon & Spa services in the privacy of your own room.
And if your BFF is of the four legged variety, you will be glad to know the Brazilian Court Hotel & Beach Club welcomes dogs up to 20 pounds.
Be sure to check out their art gallery and special authors’ breakfast series while you’re there.
Note the hotel is also a wedding and conference destination.
