The Brazilian Court Hotel.

after attending Swim Week in Miami last month, robbie and i headed the hour and a half north for a few days of relaxation in Palm Beach! we had never been before, but heard only amazing things about the quaint location. after doing some research, i decided we had to stay at The Brazilian Court Hotel! this hotel is easily one of our favorites we’ve ever been to and we couldn’t recommend it enough. the location is just two blocks of the beach and the property is so gorgeous. it’s almost like you’re tucked away in a lush jungle! now, don’t let the name fool you. we learned that the hotel itself has nothing to do with Brazil. when it was originally built, the entrance was on Brazilian Street, but after renovations the entrance actually moved to the other side of the property {now Australian Street} and of course the name wasn’t changed.

Chef Daniel Boulud’s award-winning modern French cuisine did not disappoint, and we left feeling delightfully full & satisfied. my favorite part was dessert {of course, you know me with my sweet tooth!} and i’m still dreaming of the delicious peach melba we ended our dining experience with. i highly recommend making reservations here if you’re ever in Palm Beach! i’ve heard their brunch on the terrace is amazing, too. you don’t have to be a guest to make reservations!

The Kennedys loved this hotel, and Sophia Vergara had her rehearsal dinner here, as Café Boulud is one of her favorites! because the pool is so dreamy {see below!}, many brands have shot campaigns on-site, including Lilly Pulitzer and Jack Rogers. i mean, look at that mirror sounded by palm trees. *dreamy*
