Nantucket’s White Elephant Palm Beach resort is set to open November 4, 2020. It is housed in the former Bradley park Hotel, originally constructed in 1924 as one of the first resorts on Palm Beach’s Main Street. White Elephant Palm Beach is adjacent to Bradley Park, which will serve as a grand lawn to the hotel and is less than a half mile from the newly redeveloped Royal Poinciana Plaza shopping complex.
The interiors have been stripped and rebuilt by Boston-based Elkus Manfredi Architects. However, the footprint of the structure remains intact. The resort features a neutral color palette with metal accents and vibrant pops of color.
The resort has 32 rooms available for guests to book: 13 rooms and 19 suites spread across four stories. Guestrooms and suites range from 510 to 3,000 square feet featuring custom-designed furniture. The two penthouse suites are ideal for those who want to entertain, with large living rooms, fully equipped kitchens and terraces ranging between 800 to 1,200 square feet.
The resort features a U-shaped outdoor courtyard, patio, a pool, complimentary use of BMW vehicles, access to yachts, priority bicycles and wagons, and more.
“Our main mission is to combine our vision of hospitality with the ethos and style of casually elegant Palm Beach,” comments Douglass Karp, president of New England Development. He notes, “We are pleased to combine our promise of service excellence with the exciting tradition of hospitality in this legendary resort destination. We feel right at home in Palm Beach.”
