Having Cafe Boulud delicacies poolside: "Life is Good" if you're staying at the Brazilian Court Hotel (rated #1 by Travel + Leisure). You'll feel as if you've been whisked to Monaco, eating out of doors by a beautiful stone fountain, among lush palm trees, with 5 star amenities, like Gilchrist & Soames gels & lotions, the NY Times delivered to your room, your familiar home toiletries like Crest toothpaste + brush, Gillette Foamy shave cream & razor. It's understated luxury for those who don't need to scream "I'm wealthy".
At the Frederick Fekkai Salon, you can get your make-up professionally done for a special evening out on the town, with the best makeup by Chantecaille.
If the salon is closed, make your in-room bath a mini-spa with the "Bain Ultra" Hydro-Thermo massage, a 20 minute indulgence of hot bubbling water gently massaging your body with warm penetrating heat and vapours. You can simultaneously delight in the mini petit-fours that were delivered to your room hand-crafted and wrapped by Cafe Boulud master pastry chefs.
Walking into a masterpiece of Palm Beach historical architecture, where no two rooms are alike (there's a Brando Suite, a Douglas Fairbanks Suite), you can enjoy a glass of Coppola wine, a bottle of Bud Light, or Voss water from your stocked mini-fridge, which is emblematic of the hi-brow / low-brow kind of vibe of the Brazilian Court.
A great place for a wedding for 100 of your guests, one courtyard in the 1920's building can set as the romantic backdrop for the ceremony where there is a historic wishing well, where you can make a wish for good luck to the bride and groom. The newer courtyard that opens onto the Cafe Boulud terrace, is a perfect place for the wedding reception. The "Ballroom" has a Tiffany style ochre and burnt sienna skylights, perfect for the wedding banquet. Boulud has pastry chefs who can custom-make the wedding cake and plan the menu. The "Conservatory" is a grand light-filled room that looks out onto the terrace and courtyard and is perfect for the champagne reception.
Just kick back and relax as if it's your own home away from home (which it can be, since as a Condo-Hotel, you can purchase suites, replete with living room, such as the Lanai 2BR/ 2-1/2 bath suite, all custom designed furniture and moldings by interior designer Leslie Schlesinger, with a romantic Romeo & Juliet terrace facing onto the pool.
The "Media Loggia" in the west has 5 flat-screen tv's to simultaneously watch all the newsfeeds for the media mavens who can't get enough of the news. The special limestone from France has red veins that happened when the juice from grapes washed onto the tile and stained it (it's from a wine-making region in France).
For the quiet scholarly ones, there is the "Library Loggia" in the east, stocked with books from authors such as Joan Rivers, George Hamilton, as well as coffee table favourites like "Gardens by the Sea" (Garden Club of Palm Beach), "New Garden Paradise-Great Private Gardens of the World" (house & Garden).
The Brazilian Court (like all great hotels of the world), is open to the public with its restaurant and weekly events such as The Authors Breakfasts series, where 2 authors are invited to give a talk and book signing; Thursday & Friday live entertainment and DJ; and the daily Happy Hour; with specialty cocktails and Sunday - Thursday Cafe Boulud Prix Fixe meals (great for Sunday brunch).
Whether you're a traveler looking for an oasis, or a local, looking for a place to get away for an hour or so, whisk yourselves to the Brazilian Court.

... Hallowe'en party at Coco's preschool.
The party was awesome. Everyone was dressed up. I went as a girl in black and Maddy was a vampire. They had lot of food, drink and rides and at the end they did a Cake Walk and Mum was the first to win. I helped her pick a box of Halloween cupcakes as our prize.
We got home at 9pm and went to bed. The adults sat outside drinking and chatting until ...
... the life... well, the fantasy. If only we could kick back and relax like this every day!
With gratitude to our lovely tour guide, we bade Heidi farewell as we arrived back at her home. Like all successful entrepreneurs, she must get back to work - she had a time zone to tackle now that it was a reasonable hour on the West Coast!
... Thank you Heidi for such a wonderful bundle of visits from Sunday cocktails to Friday celebrity home stalking!!
... local political petitions and petting all breeds of farm animals.
The next morning six of us were up at the break of dawn for the much anticipated (at least for Rufio) fishing trip. We stuffed a cooler full of beer, packed some sandwiches and were on our way. We met the Harrisons and our other guest Caleb (see "Tippins Sisters Reunion" entry) at the dock and boarded the Infinity with Captain Charlie Burns and first mate Michael for ...
I almost forgot to mention the Christmas caroling I did with Dr. Phil on the Piano and some friends in the Piano Lounge on Panama Canal transit day. It was a lot of fun! I sang "The Christmas Song" as a solo and “What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?” as a duet with my friend Mallory.
The second to last evening on The Explorer, there was a premier performance of SAS—The Musical. It was written and composed by students and it was fabulous! It ...
