PALM BEACH, Fla./ June 10, 2019 (STL.News)
The seaside glamour and relaxed sophistication of The Breakers Palm Beach remains timeless thanks to the resort’s devoted family ownership (heirs of founder Henry Flagler, c. 1896), who reinvest over $30 million each year into the 140-acre oceanfront property. Continuously elevating the guest experience and abundant amenities, highlights of the most recent enhancements and developments include the remodeling of signature suites, new half-day spa programs, custom-blended wines curated for The Breakers and the renovation of the hotel’s historic Ocean Course.
Premier Suites Receive a Masterful Makeover by Tihany Design
Capturing a new level of understated elegance, The Breakers commitment to ongoing revitalization continues with the rejuvenation of the resort’s Imperial and Royal Poinciana Suites. Remastered by internationally renowned designer Adam D. Tihany, who acted as design consultant to Peacock + Lewis Architects and is a longtime collaborator to this iconic property, the suites showcase sumptuous residential comfort and an open and airy floorplan. Situated in the popular South Oceanfront Tower, the redesigns reveal fresh, sophisticated décor inspired by Palm Beach’s luxury lifestyle, and breathtaking views of the Atlantic.
Complemented by hues of rich blues and greens, a nod to The Breakers’ vibrant seaside location, the sunny color palette of the Royal Poinciana Suites are enhanced by custom furniture, modern accessories and sleek finishes throughout. The Imperial Suite has been completely reimagined with a refined nautical inspiration. Rich in a navy and gold color scheme, reminiscent of a luxury yacht, this stately new look is marked by bold clean lines and uniquely Palm Beach floral accents. Throughout these premier accommodations are luxurious, hand-selected materials that reflect unsurpassed craftsmanship and superior attention to detail. The curated art collections pair Palm Beach photography with vivid contemporary forms, expressing the mindful balance of a storied history with ageless appeal.

Custom Wine Blends from The Breakers
Each year, Master Sommelier & Wine Director Virginia Philip travels to France to customize the finest proprietary wine blends exclusive to The Breakers. Debuting its first custom-blend in 2004, this annual program was born from Philip’s passion to elevate the caliber of house wines, supported by an extraordinary labor of time, talent and resources. In 2014, Philip began a new partnership with Mas La Chevalière, a vineyard in the Languedoc region of southern France, where she blends and re-blends each varietal of wine — Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon — until they are absolutely perfect. A total of 36,000 custom crush bottles are produced each year and all four wines are available to taste at the resort’s nine restaurants, through in-room dining or at any of The Breakers premium banquet events. Bottles can also be purchased at News & Gourmet retail boutique.
Florida’s Oldest Golf Course Earns a Spectacular Makeover
Emerging from a full-scale renovation by renowned golf course architect Rees Jones, The Breakers historic Ocean Course reopened in December 2018. Originally designed by Alexander H. Findlay in 1897, this artfully remodeled, championship course offers improved playability for golfers of all skill levels, exhibiting a variety of shot options with varying degrees of risk. Updates include: new salt-tolerant grass for tees, fairways and roughs; green complexes with expanded undulations; fairway contours; contemporary wooden bulkheads; enhanced native landscaping; an upgraded water-conserving, reverse-osmosis irrigation system; and the renovation and expansion of the John Webster Golf Academy. In 2004, Jones also redesigned the resort’s sister course, The Breakers Rees Jones® Course, which is located 10 miles from the hotel, set inside Breakers West Country Club. Both courses are available for the enjoyment of hotel guests and club members.
