Luxury Living: The Breakers Resort
We've taken you inside some pretty fancy homes and yachts. But tonight, we're really getting a taste of the good life. All this month, Shireen Sandoval is showing us some luxury living getaways. So what better place to start than The Breakers Resort in Palm Beach.
(WSVN) -- Back in the early 20th century, only the wealthy could afford to vacation... And when they did, they headed for The Breakers in Palm Beach.
Tricia Taylor from The Breakers Palm Beach says, "The Breakers has always been a getaway destination and at that time, Flagler really catered to the Who's Who of American society, so the guest register would include names like Vanderbilt, Astor, Rockefeller, definitely prominent, social society folks."
Fast forward 100 years, and the who's who still flock here including celebrities like Robin Williams, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Brooke Shields, and Sigourney Weaver.
And why wouldn't they come.
The hotel is a triple-a, five diamond award winner and has recently undergone a 145 million dollar facelift.
Tricia says, "It's a full service resort destination, year round people come down to get away and enjoy a little relaxation and pamper themselves."
Check into one of the hotel's 57 suites.
This is one of the biggest... It offers a fabulous view in every room.
But, the best suite in the house will cost you four-thousand dollars a night in season.
And with it, comes access to the Flagler Club -- where there's always someone to answer your every beck and call.
Tricia says, "We have a team of concierges for the entire hotel, and we have a special team of three personalized concierges if a guest is staying in our Flagler Club. You have a personal concierge to cater to your every whim as well as a butler."
Get a deep massage from one of the hotel's rooftops or step into the $20,000 square foot spa for a facial.
Grab a bite at one of the resort's eight restaurants.
And don't forget to have a taste of one of the resort's 22-thousand bottles of wine.
Whether it's having fun in the pool...
Playing a round of golf.
Or just relaxing... The Breakers is the place to do it in luxury.
Tricia says, "You don't have to leave, there's no reason to leave, we have everything right here."
The resort has a summer promotion starting at the end of the month called the longer you stay, the less you pay.
