On my quest for the ideal spot, I discovered that The Palm Beaches is perfect for a seductive getaway.
Not only does Palm Beach County have breathtaking beaches and crystal waters, it’s also home to bed and breakfast establishments that tailor romance to couples.
Here are the crème de la crème options in The Palm Beaches.
A home to the rich and famous, Palm Beach takes pampering to a whole new level. And the Palm Beach Historic Inn is no exception. Located near legendary Worth Avenue, the 1920s inn has nine rooms and four suites, each of which has antiques, hardwood floors and high ceilings.
In the morning, enjoy a scrumptious breakfast in bed, which routinely consists of warm croissants and fresh fruit. At night, stroll over to Ta-boo, a place to see and be seen.

Built in the 1920s, Casa Grandview Historic Luxury Inn Cottages and Suites offers the perfect blend of the past and present. Restored to its original Spanish Mediterranean architecture, the inn’s five rooms offer luxurious amenities such as the penthouse suite’s Jacuzzi tub.
Casa Grandview is owned by the Grantham family, which specializes in creating memorable experiences. They’ll scatter rose petals, chill champagne and make palate-pleasing breakfasts, such as Bananas Foster French toast with homemade syrup.
Couples return year after year to the Palm Beach Hibiscus B&B. The establishment has eight rooms, including the lush Hibiscus Suite, which has a king-size bed, claw foot tub and wet bar.
Savor fresh blueberry pancakes on the patio, or sip cocktails at the establishment’s tiki bar. Just a walk away is City Place, where couples can wine, dine and dance the night away.
Nestled in a tropical garden, the historic Grandview Gardens Bed & Breakfast offers a romantic package that includes fresh-cut flowers and a picnic for two. Each suite has a sitting area, its own entrance and French doors that open to a private terrace overlooking the pool.
Grandview Gardens also has bicycles for guests to cruise around town. While you’re there, catch a play at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts.
Sabal Palm House Bed & Breakfast has made a name for itself in the world of romance. Across from the Intracoastal Waterway, the house has five rooms and two suites, each with a balcony. Sleep on butter-soft sheets and wake up to a gourmet breakfast served on fine china.
Owners John and Colleen Rinaldi delight in the special touches, such as turndown services, fresh flowers, plush robes and homemade chocolate-covered strawberries. Enjoy afternoon tea and homemade sweets. Sabal Palm House is one of only two bed and breakfast from Miami to Orlando to receive AAA's Four Diamond Award.
If laid-back is your style, Mango Inn Bed & Breakfast is the place. The ten-room historic home sits on a secluded corner lot. Unwind with a couples massage, stroll to a secluded beach or take delight in a romance package.
Every morning, a gourmet breakfast awaits on the veranda overlooking the pool; don’t miss the Mango Inn Stuffed French Toast, prepared with mangoes grown on property.
With several bed and breakfasts, The Palm Beaches offers a customized retreat for every couple.
