The ultimate Palm Beach getaway…
Our 4-day Palm Beach trip was honestly my favorite trip we’ve taken in a while. I can’t tell you how much I loved this little town – it had been 10 years since I’d been there and I could have stayed another week easily. It’s a VIBE – between the colorful pink and pastels everywhere you look, the incredible al fresco restaurants and the chic hotels, I was in heaven.
We went in mid-March which was perfect weather for both laying by the pool but also walking around (I imagine summer there is a little brutal). I’d definitely recommend wintertime from late November to April.
The Breakers Hotel was expansive, beautifully laid out and service was 10/10. I’d definitely stay there again. While the actual décor and lobby design is a little more traditional than my own style, it feels luxurious and grand, like a proper old school resort, and you get that feeling as soon as you step into the lobby with its impossibly high ceilings and arches. I loved walking to the coffee shop every morning – the Breakers has a beautiful courtyard area with multiple shops (really good ones – resort wear, shoes, jewelry) and an amazing coffee/gift shop, where we’d grab our morning drinks. I saw a lot of non-hotel guests meeting for breakfast in this area and if I lived nearby I’d be there all the time too.
I also loved The Colony Hotel, which is worth seeing just for the décor alone – think pink flamingos, tassel armchairs, Beverly Hills hotel style. However, it’s a lot smaller and feels more boutique – I think it’s the perfect place to stay for just one or two nights or to come have lunch by the pool, but for multi-day trips, I’d prefer the Breakers for its relaxing and spread out feeling.
Christophe and I were in town to see my grandparents, who are in the Boca area, so we spent some time with them there – thus, we only had a few meals in Palm Beach but below is where we went:
The Breakers – go to HMF, their large lobby bar – it was quite a scene
The Colony – go for lunch by the pool
Honor Bar – one of my favorite Montecito restaurants has a location here
Renalto’s – beautiful, charming bougainvillea-lined courtyard and incredible Italian food
Lola 41 – trendy sushi spot with a buzzy bar, both indoor and outdoor seating
Palm Beach Grill
Shopping at The Royal Poinciana Plaza – chicest outdoor mall with a great juice spot and all the best stores
Shopping/strolling down Worth Ave – Palm Beach’s version of Rodeo, but so much cuter
Walk along the Palm Beach Lake Trail
Morakami Museum & Japanese Gardens – 35 min drive from Palm Beach but we went here with my grandparents and it was a beautiful afternoon
I had so many more recommendations from friends and followers that we didn’t get to but here is the list:
