Palm Beach
Here are five "perfect places" to stay in Palm Beach as selected by the spring issue of SAKSFIRST, the exclusive magazine of Saks Fifth Avenue.

The Breakers The Flagler Club at The Breakers.  Since 1896, this 140 acre oceanfront hotel has been one of Palm Beach's most luxurious and fabled destinations.  Inspired by the Italian Renaissance, its twin Belvedere towers were patterned after Rome's Villa Medici, and the palm lined 500-foot main drive leads to the Florentine Fountain, modeled after the one at the Boboli Gardens in Florence.  A recent $130 million renovation has given it a fresh, new appeal.  The Flagler Club on its top two floors offers personalized concierge services, private access to the Club's lounge, and complimentary Continental Breakfast.

Brazilian Court The Brazilian Court  Tucked away on a quiet, tree-lined street, this charming luxury-class hotel offers the elegance and personal service of an intimate European inn.  The fabulous Worth Avenue, one of the world's most famous and exclusive shopping districts, is just a short walk from the hotel's front door, as are the beaches of the sparkling blue Atlantic.  It was designed in 1926 as a Spanish-style complex of apartments around a central courtyard.  Now it features a new restaurant by Daniel Boulud and a Frederic Fekkai Salon and Spa.

The Colony Villas The Colony Villas  In addition to its charming hotel rooms and suites, The Colony has seven private two-bedroom villas with their own pool and parking.  And it's all been refurbished in splendid British Colonial style.  The villas supply everything one could possibly need, even for an extended stay.  Just bring your clothes.  Located near the heart of glamorous Worth Avenue and about 100 yards from the white sandy beaches.

A Palm Beach Bungalow Rent a bungalow  Why stay in a hotel when you can rent a 3 bedroom/2 bathroom bungalow with pool, near Worth Avenue and half a block from the ocean?  Or perhaps you'd prefer a charming cottage with lush patio gardens complete with fountain.  You can get either for less than $5,000 a month.

The Ritz-Carlton Palm Beach The Ritz-Carlton  One of only 24 North American hotels to have been awarded five stars from the Mobil Travel Guide and five diamonds from AAA.  Located in the quiet Southern Tip of Palm Beach, it offers seven acres of ocean front beach, a spa, an outdoor pool, exceptional dining, and a Ritz Kids supervised children's program.  Club Level guests enjoy concierges service, five complimentary food and beverage selections a day, and a private lounge overlooking the pool and the Atlantic.
