Take a Break and Head to the Breakers in Palm Beach


By: Christopher Roney

There are two things I love: One is a beautiful Renaissance-style Mediterranean hotel.  The other is the spaciousness of Florida beaches. Actually, I'm pretty sure there's more than that, but these two seemed the most appropriate for the moment because I'm about to tell you about The Breakers in Palm Beach, FL.  One thing about American hotels is that they have a style all of their own, and it's rare to see European sensibilities packed up and smuggled over international waters to find a home in good ole US of A.  However, the breakers is a lovely exception to that rule.  I'm not sure how they snuck it through customs, but The Breakers brings the Italian Renaissance to Palm Beach, and its 140 acres give that style the room to breathe that it has a little more trouble finding in its native Italy.

On the property, you can find 36 holes of championship golf, 10 tennis courts, a beach club, and an extensive children's club. All this has been registered as a National Historic Place, thanks to its 100+ year history in the hotel business.  Fine dining, four oceanfront pools, and a full-service spa are all just an arm's reach away.  Not only that, for the family-minded, the hotel can connect up to five rooms together, so you can be perfectly flexible finding the arrangement that works best for your party.  As if that weren't enough, take to the seas and the skies with organized water sports, hot-air ballooning, or an air boat tour.  It's almost too much take in in just one trip.  So maybe you'll have to stay at The Breakers in Palm Beach twice.

Tory Burch Lounge for Mother's Day at Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach


By: Mary Winston Nicklin

Four Seasons Resort Palm BeachMother's Day is just around the corner, and hotels are getting creative with special packages to honor moms. One of the best we've seen is at the Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach, where they're opening a Tory Burch Lounge in the hotel's Living Room. While sipping complimentary Prosecco cocktails, moms can browse the Summer 2011 collection (from tunics to trendy accessories) before getting spoiled with mini treatments in The Spa and complimentary gifts from the Amala all-organic luxury cosmetic line. Last but not least: a sumptuous Mother's Day Brunch with a gourmet buffet that's guaranteed to tempt the taste buds (a lot more than eggs benedict!) From noon until 6 pm, the brunch costs $100 per person, and $30 per child aged 5-12.
