Those who have previously frequented the White Elephant resort while cruising New England will now be able to step ashore in Florida’s Palm Beach for a similar experience. Housed in the former Bradley Park Hotel on Sunset Avenue, the 32-room White Elephant Palm Beach is a welcome addition to the White Elephant portfolio of stunning properties.
Listed with the Landmark Preservation Commission, the structure and façade of the old Bradley Park Hotel remain, while the interiors have been completely rebuilt, thereby showcasing the history of the existing building while bringing it in line with the contemporary style of the sister property. Like its Nantucket counterpart, the White Elephant Palm Beach has been designed in the spirit of a grand home with a neutral color palette as opposed to the bright pinks and greens that are more typical of the Palm Beach area. Two penthouse suites, 17 large suites and 13 guest rooms all have their own private outdoor space, while the U-shaped outdoor courtyard with patio and pool is the social heart of the hotel. Each room has been given a New England feel, with custom-designed furniture and soft furnishings giving a classically stylish finish. The penthouse suites boast living rooms, fully equipped kitchens and terraces; the three-bedroom Park Suite, which offers views over Bradley Park and the Intracoastal Waterway, can be expanded into a four-bedroom suite, while the two-bedroom Palm Suite, which faces that ocean, can be expanded into three bedrooms.
Upon entering the property guests are welcomed by a seven-foot white elephant statue, while further works of art are displayed throughout the communal guest areas and accommodation. For gourmands looking for something new in Palm Beach, The White Elephant Palm Beach has a branch of Lola 41 as its signature restaurant, serving international cuisine and local seafood specialties. All guests have complimentary use of Priority Bicycles and BMW cars, and of course, your Northrop & Johnson broker can organize a charter yacht for cruising the Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean.
The White Elephant Palm Beach opens its doors in November.
