White Elephant Palm Beach
Newly-Opened November 2020
Recently opened on Nov. 4, 2020, Nantucket’s iconic White Elephant Resort welcomed its boutique sister property in historic Palm Beach. The new property, which has been completely reimagined by Boston-based architecture firm Elkus Manfredi, represents the total renovation of the Bradley Park Hotel, which dates back to the 1920s and was one of the first hotels in the area. Listed with the Landmark Preservation Commission, the team worked tirelessly with the Town of Palm Beach to create a new hotel that embraces the history of the existing building while incorporating a contemporary interpretation of Mediterranean Revival architecture.
The 32-room and suite property maintain the welcoming feel of a private residence, and each accommodation offers a private outdoor space. The interior and exterior display a natural color palate, in contrast with the pinks and greens synonymous with Palm Beach.
The Mizner-style facade is painted a light, creamy-white color with classic black-and-white striped awnings, charcoal-gray roof tiles, and black trim to bring a fresh, sophisticated look to the classic structure.
Of note is also the original fireplace located in the hotel’s lobby, which has been restored to the grandeur of the Golden Age. Among the amenities are an art collection exceeding 100 works, personally curated by the owners.
Guests have complimentary use of Priority Bicycles and BMW vehicles, as well as exclusive access to Barton & Gray yachts.
