From the mo­ment you ar­rive, The Break­ers will im­press the most dis­cern­ing of guests with the amaz­ing ar­chi­tec­ture, first-class ser­vices and end­less ameni­ties. With 140 acres of pris­tine acreage in the heart of Palm Beach, The Break­ers has re­mained one of the most iconic prop­er­ties in the United States for well over 100 years. Af­ter burn­ing down twice in the early years, it was re­built to ex­ceed the ex­pec­ta­tions of even the great Henry Fla­gler; who had a vi­sion for the role that this ho­tel would play in the de­vel­op­ment and long-term growth of Palm Beach.

The con­tin­ued ex­cite­ment sur­round­ing The Break­ers Palm Beach is largely due to the ded­i­ca­tion of the long­stand­ing fam­ily’s own­er­ship and de­ter­mi­na­tion to main­tain the prop­erty’s in­tegrity, and al­ways look­ing to the fu­ture. $25 mil­lion has been in­vested an­nu­ally in re­cent years for cap­i­tal im­prove­ments and on­go­ing re­vi­tal­iza­tion to pre­serve (and mod­ern­ize) this mon­u­men­tal piece of Florida his­tory.

The Break­ers fea­tures 540 rooms and suites; 36 holes of cham­pi­onship golf; 10 Har-Tru ten­nis courts; lux­ury spa; a breath­tak­ing ocean­front with a half-mile of pri­vate beach, Mediter­ranean-style beach club; four ocean­front pools; a Fam­ily En­ter­tain­ment Cen­ter; eight dis­tinc­tive restau­rants and eight bars; and an ar­ray of on-site bou­tiques. Ar­riv­ing to The Break­ers, you im­me­di­ately re­al­ize you are in a place un­like any­where else. Though there are many rea­sons to visit The Break­ers Palm Beach, here are our top five rea­sons to plan your own get­away.


1. Beach Club Bun­ga­lows

The Beach Club and the mul­ti­ple pools make a great re­treat along the beach. The South Pool is a fa­vorite be­cause of the lo­ca­tion and mix of ages re­lax­ing in and around the pool: and these Bun­ga­lows are some of the best in Florida with a ded­i­cated concierge and nice over­all setup with seat­ing in­side and out – com­plete with a tele­vi­sion in­side, bath­room, shower and more. (Ask for #25, when avail­able!).

2. Fla­gler Club

A “ho­tel-within-a-ho­tel,” Fla­gler Club pro­vides an en­tirely new level of ex­clu­siv­ity for guests within these newly ren­o­vated 25 rooms and suites. The per­son­al­ized team here goes above and be­yond to cater to their guests from start to fin­ish – all in a very glam­orous and bou­tique set­ting. This ex­pe­ri­ence is the best of both worlds: com­plete ac­cess to the re­sort and its ameni­ties, then re­treat to your pri­vate floor, re­plete with ad­di­tional ameni­ties and one-of-a-kind perks.

3. Fla­gler Steak­house

Though many of the din­ing op­tions at The Break­ers are fan­tas­tic, Fla­gler Steak­house is sim­ply a must-ex­pe­ri­ence dur­ing the stay. Lo­cated down the pic­turesque palm-lined drive, this clas­sic Amer­i­can chophouse is up­stairs from the golf club­house, and pro­vides a dy­namic menu with ex­cep­tional ser­vice. En­joy the meal in­side while din­ing un­der the dra­matic beamed ceil­ing, or out­side on the ter­race while watch­ing the golfers bat­tle The Ocean Course.

4. Golf

Golf is a rit­ual at The Break­ers. The Ocean Course is on the prop­erty, and is his­tor­i­cally sig­nif­i­cant as it was Florida’s first 18-hole course. About 10-miles away, The Break­ers Rees Jones® Course is wor­thy of the time spent get­ting to the club. Both cour­ses are only open to re­sort guests and mem­bers, so they both make you feel like you are a mem­ber for the day.

5. The Spa:

Af­ter a com­plete ren­o­va­tion, this new spa is per­fec­tion. Ev­ery de­tail is ex­e­cuted beau­ti­fully in a posh yet very com­fort­able environment. An ex­ten­sive list of body, hair, nail and beauty ser­vices are avail­able to guests, and ev­ery­one is en­cour­aged to fin­ish the spa ex­pe­ri­ence on the exclusive spa ter­race for a few added min­utes of pure bliss. For best re­sults, take ad­van­tage of the Sig­na­ture Spa Suite Ex­pe­ri­ence (for one, or two guests) with the spe­cialty Tammy Fender or OSEA treat­ments.
