From an icon of Nantucket hospitality comes a fully renovated destination resort in Palm Beach. At White Elephant Palm Beach, guests will experience the timeless charm and elegance of White Elephant with a brand-new Palm Beach sensibility. This contemporary interpretation of Mediterranean-revival architecture reflects the pulse and excitement of Palm Beach while capturing the spirit of a stately home. A complete, five-star renovation includes hardwood floors, woven rugs, exquisite tiles, and a color palette in soft neutrals - inspired by Palm Beach.
The new hotel, completely redeveloped New England Development, represents the total renovation of the former Bradley Park Hotel – which dates back to the 1920’s - and its transformation into one of the most luxurious properties in Palm Beach.
The project reflects the standard of outstanding hospitality already established by New England Development in their waterfront White Elephant Nantucket and highlights the synergy between two legendary resort destinations. The new hotel embraces the history of the existing four-story landmark building adjacent to Bradley Park.
The 32-key hotel, with 13 rooms and 19 spacious suites, is residential in scale with outdoor spaces and lush landscaping. The rooms and suites have outdoor balconies with landscaping. Both penthouse suites offer large living rooms with fully equipped kitchens and large outdoor terraces with coastal views.
The layout of the hotel takes advantage of outdoor spaces featuring a u-shaped outdoor courtyard, which will be the social heart of the hotel and the setting for an inviting pool environment and an outdoor seating. A new signature restaurant, private dining rooms and outdoor seating will be incorporated while maintaining the ambiance of a boutique resort.
The interior design captures the spirit of a grand home with hard wood floors, elegant tiles, woven rugs, all interpreted with contemporary style. The interior colors reflect the special quality of Palm Beach light in soft neutrals. The exterior walls of the Mizner-style architecture feature a light creamy-white color with classic black-and-white striped awnings, charcoal-grey roof tiles and black trim creating a fresh, sophisticated look to the classic structure.
The hotel stands one street north of Royal Poinciana Way, Palm Beach’s original Main Street and less than two blocks from the Atlantic Ocean. It is located on the corner of Sunset Avenue, the southeast corner of Bradley Place, adjacent to the intra-coastal waterway. White Elephant Palm Beach is adjacent to Bradley Park, which has been restored and serves as a grand lawn to the hotel. In recent years, this historic area of Palm Beach has undergone a revitalization including the development of the Royal Poinciana Plaza shopping area and the completion of the Flagler Memorial Bridge.
