A serene and luxurious oasis of old world charm– this is The Chesterfield in Palm Beach, just a short stroll from the fabulous boutiques and restaurants of famed Worth Avenue and minutes from the ocean and the beach. This stunning, award-winning small hotel, recipient of many accolades has just 53 rooms and suites and offers an indulgent escape opportunity where you can live life to the fullest.
The elegant and chic, English-style décor is incredibly charming, there are delightful objets d’arts everywhere and the hotel staff are engaging and offer discreet hospitality of the best kind with great attention to detail.

Enjoy the heated pool and hot tub accompanied by the soothing sounds of a water feature as you relax on a chaise with a cool libation. The hotel is flower festooned inside and out, palm trees are everywhere and tropical pink blooms add to the charming feel and the calm and peaceful atmosphere.
The beautifully appointed rooms and expansive suites, each one with unique décor and furnishings are a wonderful retreat and come with all the amenities once expects including complimentary Wi-Fi, a dish of bonbons and a flat screen TV.

English Afternoon Tea is served in the Library but it is the stylish, sleek and legendary Leopard Lounge – both the Bar and Restaurant that we particularly loved. A great spot for Happy Hour cocktails to the accompaniment of live piano music, or an ideal venue for some beautifully prepared international cuisine, this is a popular room with the fantastic red and white painted ceiling, leather banquettes, gorgeous shutters and colonial style fans – all creating a really fabulous and chic atmosphere. There is also a courtyard for casual and al fresco meals and the concierge can arrange golf games, spa appointments and just about anything else you may require during your stay.
