Escape to the ultimate boutique luxury hotel of Palm Beach – The Brazilian Court Hotel.
The grounds of the Brazilian Court Hotel are a lush green, dotted with glorious palms and a rich architecture that possesses two inviting but private courtyards. The intimate and lush courtyards beckon at least a few minutes of your time – perfect for that afternoon cocktail or morning cafe au lait. There are so many secluded enclaves, which are reminiscent of a storybook. Although the Brazilian Court Hotel is secluded and intimate, it is in a central location. One gets the best of both worlds. You can have your cake and eat it too. Welcome to the heart of Palm Beach.
Within a short walking distance from the Brazilian Court is Worth Avenue, a beautiful shopping district that has a European touch. Waltz down Worth Avenue, where you can find Chanel as well as Tiffany & Co. Spend some time at the golden beaches of Palm Beach. Don’t worry about essentials. The Brazilian Court has a beach bag packed with beach essentials and more – towels, water, magazines, and more – quite the treat.
Return to the splendor of the Brazilian Court, and dip into the pool amidst a beautiful courtyard surrounded by palm trees. The poolside is a delightful serenade of a courtyard.
You’ll feel like a movie star at the Brazilian Court.
Onsite at the Brazilian Court Hotel is the Frederic Fekkai Salon & Spa, to add that extra glamour to your already fabulous and fashionable stay. Indulge in a spa treatment to make your stay even more relaxing.
Speaking of glamor, during our stay, it was impossible to ignore the care and attention every guest received from the staff. It is something wonderful to be taken care of with such sincerity at a historic luxury hotel. This care and attention appeared effortless at the Brazilian Court.
The rooms at Brazilian Court are delicate havens that include wonderful features
Jazz music lightly filled the air as we entered the room. The soothing music complimented the luxurious and relaxing ambiance of the room. The rooms at Brazilian Court are delicate havens that include wonderful features such as Provence-style wood shutters, mahogany crown molding, and imported linens. The bedside stand, with a live orchid, was a perfect touch to the peaceful and elegant ensemble of the custom-designed room.
The bathrooms include Ultra Air Jet baths with customized hyrdo-thermo massage menus. Can you say Heaven?
It is possible to reserve a room with a private terrace, to add that extra air of a secretive outside enclave.
Dining: Café Boulud
Café Boulud is a work of art. Our dining experience was exquisite. It is recommended reserving a table prior to your arrival in Café Boulud, and we couldn’t agree more. This restaurant is the epicenter of fine French cuisine, to be precise – French-American cuisine with a dash of South Florida.
We started our evening with an order ‘From the Garden’: Walt’s Tomatoes and Stuffed Squash Blossoms. Walt’s Tomatoes arrived with Burrata and Saffron-White Balsamic Vinaigrette. The plump Tomatoes fit perfectly with the succulent Burrata, and the Saffron-White Balsamic Vinaigrette added a tasteful touch.
Secondly, we had a selection from ‘Le Voyage: Martinique’ portion of the menu. This portion of the menu highlighted cuisine from Martinique. We experienced the Feroce d’Avocat. With Peekytoe Crab, Avocado, and Pickled Fresno Chile, this dish is a surrender to the senses.
For our Main Course, we chose the Mushroom Risotto and Olive Oil Poached Halibut. The Mushroom Risotto was a wonderful and creamy dish. The Olive Oil Poached Halibut was accompanied with Chorizo, Lettuce, and Turnip. The Olive Oil Poached Halibut was masterfully executed to perfection.
For Dessert, we experienced the Fluffernutter and Flambè Martinique. The Fluffernutter with Hazelnut, Grapes, and Meringue, came with a separate “Bagged Lunch”. The “Bagged Lunch” was a traditional Fluffernutter. The Fluffernutter we experienced was a nectarous combination of nutty flavors with fruity undertones.
The Flambè Martinique with Coconut, Banana, Pineapple, and Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum is an extraordinary dessert that tantalizes and delights the taste buds.
The Mignardises were a lovely treat, arrayed in an artistic fashion. They provided that light and pleasant finale to an unforgettable dining experience.
Executive Chef Rick Mace surely captures the essence of what it is to celebrate fine dining.
Café Boulud offers private dining rooms and the terrace, a prime location for celebrating any special occasion. This summer Café Boulud debuted a Guest Chef Series. Three renowned local chefs joined Executive Chef Rick Mace in the kitchen, each on a specific evening. The last evening for the Guest Chef Series, on September 15th, will include Chef Clay Conley, a James Beard award-nominated chef of Buccan, Imoto, and Grato. Each night of the series includes a prixe-menu, at $95 per person, inclusive of one cocktail and wine pairings throughout the dinner. Reservations are recommended and stop 24 hours before each event.
It is a sublime escape to stay at the Brazilian Court Hotel – the ultimate boutique luxury hotel in the heart of Palm Beach. Thank you for hosting us.
