When people think of East Coast luxury, Palm Beach often comes to mind. With pristine white sand beaches and a Hollywood vibe, Palm Beach is one of the cities in Florida that draws celebrities. Stars such as Ariana Grande, Kevin James, Bill Gates, Adam Sandler, Michael Jordan and Howard Stern are all known to own homes or condominiums in the area. 

Upon arriving in Palm Beach, it’s easy to see why. The city has taken the laid-back South Florida atmosphere and mixed it with the elegance of the Golden Era of Hollywood, making it the perfect place to take your millions and enjoy some time in the sun.

When staying Palm Beach, visitors need a place to call their own that allows them to enjoy the elegance of the city but doesn’t require you to be a millionaire to stay. White Elephant Palm Beach is the perfect mix of feeling like royalty without paying like royalty; and CELEB is taking a look inside.

At the White Elephant Palm Beach, guests can expect a contemporary vacation destination. And the Park Suite is the pinnacle of the hotel’s beauty, elegance and charm. The Park Suite offers 3 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms of luxury rooftop accommodations. Guests with a larger group can expand the suite to a 4 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom – making it the largest place to stay in Palm Beach.

Watch the breathtaking Palm Beach sunset over the tops of the whispering palm trees and enjoy being above it all as the city hums below you. The suite uses contemporary decor and a soothing light-wood and white design palette to set a relaxing atmosphere.

A fully-equipped kitchen and full-sized dining area lends itself to a home-like atmosphere, but few homes are so elegant. The master bedroom is bedecked in a cream-and-white palette that will soothe your mind at the end of a long day, and the living area leads out onto a large rooftop terrace that’s all yours. The rooftop terrace is the perfect place to stretch out and get some sun in the privacy of your own outdoor space or sit in the shade and enjoy a cool cocktail and hear the waves roll in on the beach.

White Elephant Palm Beach

White

The White Elephant was built in 1924 and has been re-imagined by Boston-based Elkus Manfredi Architects. With 13 deluxe rooms and 19 suites, the hotel embraces a Mediterranean-meets-contemporary vibe. 

Guests at the White Elephant can expect their time to be soothing, pampered, and full of the luxury you expect on a Palm Beach vacation. When the White Elephant brand moved south into Palm Beach, they brought their Nantucket roots with them. This is evident in the fine innovative restaurant concept of Lola 41, which brings the taste of New England to the foodie region of South Florida.

With a landscaped property and manicured lush pool deck, both indoor and outdoor spaces at the White Elephant are perfect for whiling away the afternoon hours. And whether you plan to take a short stroll to the beach or head into the city, the hotel offers multiple family-friendly amenities to make sure guests of all ages feel welcome and pampered.

Complimentary bikes and a complimentary hotel van make exploring an easy task, and with the warm weather year-round that makes Palm Beach so desirable, your own two feet may be your favorite way to get out and about. 

Art is another scene that finds a home in Palm Beach, and the White Elephant has embraced this concept, making it a destination unto itself. In a statement, the hotel’s team explains, “The design captures the spirit of a grand home while maintaining the ambiance of a landmarked boutique hotel. Breaking from the bright pinks and greens that dominate the Palm Beach aesthetic, the White Elephant Palm Beach features a neutral color palette with sleek metal accents and vibrant pops of color. The hardwood floors, Carrara marble, elegant tiles and woven rugs are all interpreted with contemporary style. Outside, the Mizner-style facade is painted a light, creamy-white color with classic black-and-white striped awnings, terracotta roof tiles, and black trim to bring a fresh, sophisticated look to the classic structure. Guests are welcomed onto the property by a seven-foot white elephant statue by Santa Fe-based artist Fredrick Prescott. (A ‘sister’ elephant statue, Trunket, is on the grounds of White Elephant in Nantucket.)

The statue is just one of 120 original pieces of colorful modern and pop art personally curated by the owners and Elkus Manfredi. The museum-worthy collection is on display throughout the rooms and common spaces. Featured artists include Robert Rauschenberg, whose early creations in the 1950s anticipated the pop art movement, and Jennifer Bartlett, known for her small, square steel plates that are combined in grid formations to create large-scale works. Several pieces by painter Kenzo Okada, the first Japanese-American artist to receive international acclaim using abstract expressionist style, are on display, as are works by Donald Baechler, part of the East Village, New York 1980s art movement. A 54-inch round acrylic work by Orit Fuchs was specifically created for the hotel and is a focal point of the lobby; while six prints by Yinka Shonibare, who will unveil a new public sculpture installation in West Palm Beach in 2021, can be found on the second-floor corridor. Doodle Boy, a 10-year-old British artist, was also commissioned to create 30 exclusive pieces for the powder rooms. Using clean black lines hand drawn with a thick marker, he incorporated a hidden signature elephant in each of his drawings.”

Palm Beach; History Meets New Age

White

While you’re exploring Palm Beach, you may be interested in the history of the city. Palm Beach is a true resort town – not just a town filled with resorts, but a town that was founded as a resort itself. Founder of Standard Oil, Henry Morrison Flagler, created Palm Beach as a resort town at the turn of the 20th century. Flagler’s name is all over Florida, in beaches, colleges, streets and businesses – because it was his expansion of the Florida East Coast Railway that opened up the region to trade and travel.

Because it was created to be an idyll, Palm Beach is the perfect destination and feels planned without being overly contrived. This is what draws celebrities to Palm Beach; the feel of elegance without pretense. And the fact that it’s just about an hour and a half from the cultural hub of Miami doesn’t hurt; close enough to commute for a night on the town, but far enough to avoid the pitfalls of a booming and rapidly expanding city.

Guests exploring Palm Beach for the first time can expect to rub elbows with stars and locals alike, all immersed in the welcoming and joyful atmosphere the town embraces.
