Sun, swaying palms, sand, seafood and superbly stylish hotels make the dream Florida holiday. Book a stay with Culture Trip and you can relax long before you arrive.
Cruising away from the Port of Palm Beach sets the bar extremely high for the rest of any voyage: the beautiful beaches, boutique shopping, supreme golf and vibrant culture you wave goodbye to are among the best in South Florida. Any day spent around West Palm or the islands will be exceptional – enhanced by a night or two at one of the local luxury hotels. Hanging around before or after your cruise? We’ve compiled our shortlist of the best hotels near the Port of Palm Beach, all bookable via Culture Trip.
Why stay at the Brazilian Court? Where to start? There are the elegant, airy studios with wisteria-pattern wall panels and snow-white bedding. There’s Café Boulud, by super-chef Daniel Boulud, where French- and Italian-accented food is served on the warm-breezy terrace. There’s the year-round outdoor pool, edged by designer chaise lounges; and the round-the-clock fitness center, if you’ve overdone it on the caviar-loaded blinis and champagne. You don’t simply stay at the Brazilian Court; you experience it with all five senses.
Why stay in any old hotel when you can really roll out the Palm Beach lifestyle at this Singer Island resort? Gazing around your ocean-facing condo with a full kitchen and a dreamy balcony, you’ll probably decide to hang around all day. Amenities are impressive. There’s a spa – SiSpa, popular for therapies including a 50-minute Glowing Mermaid facial – and two outdoor pools. The natural assets are awesome, too: long stretches of white-sand beach that bring the lucky ones flying south every winter. If you’ve got the time to really explore, Peanut Island is the place to drop an anchor and crack a cold one.
It’s got a central location in West Palm Beach, but it’s all about subtlety and tranquility at this cool check-in. Simple rooms are spick-and-span – unobtrusive decoratively, as this is a corporate hotel, with media and work centers. Weekenders love it, too, for the generous healthy lobby breakfast and the fitness-center workouts. It’s handy for the Norton Museum of Art as well. There’s a bar, but you’ll need to step out for lunch and dinner. Top tip: carouse around the eating and drinking spots on Clematis Street, the historical heart of Downtown West Palm Beach.
