U.S. News Review

To put it bluntly, The Brazilian Court Hotel & Beach Club is gorgeous — from the mahogany furniture in the guest rooms to the plush white lounge chairs around the heated outdoor pool. And according to recent guests, the on-site function space is ideal for weddings. Previous visitors describe the accommodations as beautiful and comfortable thanks to Colonial decor, jet bathtubs, 1,000-thread-count sheets and wet bars. (If you'd like access to your own private balcony, travelers say you'll need to request a room facing the courtyard.) While you're here, you'll have access to the tables at the highly acclaimed Café Boulud, which serves of decadent plates of innovative French cuisine. And if you need some pampering, head to the on-site Frédéric Fekkai Salon and Spa, which boasts a long list of services. The Brazilian Court also caters to four-legged travelers with special welcome treats and pet-friendly amenities. This luxury hotel is on Australian Avenue in Palm Beach, less than 2 miles from Clematis Street and the Norton Museum of Art.

Critic Reviews

Philadelphia Magazine

“The hotel still boasts a Hollywood-on-vacation vibe that's blissfully more Cary Grant than Kimye.”

Condé Nast Traveler

“Built in 1926 and recently renovated, this Palm Beach landmark is made up of lush courtyards and classic Spanish-Mediterranean architecture.”


“The Brazilian Court has a convenient location close to numerous great shopping spots, like chichi Worth Avenue.”


“Star chef Daniel Boulud's Cafe Boulud at the Brazilian Court Hotel and Beach Club in Palm Beach is sublime. Chef Zach Bell carries out his boss's signature French dishes with ease, grace, and skill that's unparalleled in these parts.”
