In Palm Beach, about ten minutes from the Beach Club
The Brazilian Court has a convenient location close to numerous great shopping spots, like chichi Worth Avenue. But the Beach Club is about a 10-minute drive away. There are other beaches just a few blocks away, but getting to them requires crossing busy streets.
Palm Beach is an enclave of the uber-rich. The area is filled with grade-A golf courses, high-end shops, and upscale restaurants -- and obviously, beautiful beaches (although many are private).
The historic, 80-room Brazilian Court gives off a glamorous, British Colonial feel -- the courtyards feature tinkling fountains, the lobby is decorated with gorgeous rough wood ceilings and rich colors, and mahogany accents warm up the 80 elegant rooms. The property also features some brand-name cachet -- a restaurant from famous chef Daniel Boulud and a salon from celebrity stylish Frederic Fekkai. But don't be fooled by the hotel's name -- though access to the Beach Club is free for guests, and a free shuttle will drop you off, the beach is about a 10-minute drive away. Those hoping to be directly on the beach may consider staying at the trendy Omphoy.
