The Site

The Breakers Palm BeachFounded in 1896 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, The Breakers Palm Beach is one of America’s legendary resort destinations.  The 540-room, Italian Renaissance-style hotel resides on 140 acres of oceanfront property in the heart of Palm Beach.  With the commitment of its original ownership, The Breakers has invested $250 million over the past 15 years in its ongoing revitalization and enhancement of its multi-faceted amenities – most recently, the dramatic transformation of shoreline into a luxurious beachfront experience.  The resort’s timeless atmosphere has been renewed in a style of residential elegance, from its magnificent interiors to its artfully designed landscape.  Highly personalized service indulges couples on a romantic getaway as much as it energizes multi-generational travelers with a family-minded philosophy.  Capital expenditures averaging $25 million a year will continue to be reinvested in the property for the long term, to ensure it remains appealing to future guests for decades to come.

The resort features 36 holes of championship golf, including The Ocean Course and The Breakers Rees Jones® Course; 10 tennis courts, a 20,000-square-foot luxury spa; a breathtaking oceanfront and Mediterranean-style beach club with a half-mile of private beach, featuring luxurious beach bungalows for daytime-rental, five pools and four whirlpool spas; a comprehensive Family Entertainment Center, an extensive program of family and children’s activities, and a variety of water sports.  The Breakers also features a broad selection of distinctive restaurants ranging from casual to fine dining, as well as an array of on-site boutiques – all wholly owned and managed by the resort.  The Breakers is recognized as a AAA Five Diamond property.
