The Brazilian Court Hotel & Beach Club in Palm Beach

The Brazilian Court Hotel & Beach Club in Palm Beach is a luxurious enclave in an already luxurious destination. Located in Palm Beach it's one of the top hotels in the area. In fact it's more than a hotel, it's a home away from home for the well-heeled. Like more and more top hotels they accomodate long-term stays making it a cross between a hotel and a residence...and not just any residence... 

If Palm Beach was a woman she'd be introverted, gorgeous and well, just a little bit "uppety"...but when you get to know her she'd take you to a world you never knew existed and you'd like it! The Brazilian Palm Court, also home to the famous Cafe Boulud, warmly welcomes its guests, they are after all coming back home...often, back to one of their many homes.  

Brazilian Court is minutes away from high-end shopping on Worth Avenue and steps away from the beach. If you prefer to use the private beach the hotel offers a complimentary shuttle (a BMW with your own private chauffeur) to the beach area. It's worth going to the beach just to enjoy the shuttle ride and drive past some of the world's most exclusive real estate.
The white drapes and lush vegetation welcome you into this private enclave located right at the heart of everything in Palm Beach. I love being able to see right through to the inner courtyard.

Cafe Boulud (see post about my dinner there)


The Ballroom
The inner courtyard with comfortable reclining white chairs, the murmur of elegant fountains, the soft brushing sound of lush palm trees over your head...one could sit here all day long and not get bored.

One of the common areas

You all know how I feel about crisp, top quality bed linens...passionately!

The fountain...I can still hear its soft gurgling...ah, Palm Beach I miss you!

The bathroom in my guest room was, as you can see, pretty substantial. On the other side was a large bathtub. Double sinks in the center...room to break out some dance moves in the shower. I spend a lot of time primping and preening in the bathroom and I felt very comfortable spending time in this one! 

The pool. Small and intimate...perfect for lounging poolside.

Inner Courtyard and Cafe Boulud at night. If you are planning to spend time in Palm Beach then you simply must do it at the Brazilian Court...you'll get to feel as though you're not some stray visitor but a resident, someone who truly belongs, and that is a priceles feeling.
