Holidays at The Breakers

Celebrate the Splendor of the Holidays, Memorably and Safely

PALM BEACH, FL – This holiday season, the craving to celebrate with loved ones in a joyful setting is more alluring than ever. One of Florida’s most iconic resorts, The Breakers Palm Beach, will once again delight and enchant guests with its legendary, festive transformation.

This magnificent seaside destination upholds its long-standing tradition of visually captivating décor, elevated dining experiences and an array of activities to embody the heartwarming spirit of the season. For the well-being of employees, guests and club members, an enhanced B SAFE - Health & Safety Initiative is in place throughout the 140-acre property, which includes reduced capacities in the hotel, restaurants and other venues; social distancing measures; elevated cleaning standards and facial covering requirements. Visitors relish the sense of ease, comfort and reassurance that extends from the point of reservation to the countless, on-site resort experiences, breathtaking and spacious surroundings, and bounty of outdoor amenities.


After extensive planning and preparation, The Breakers spends days decking the halls of its majestic entryways, loggias and courtyards. Highlights include:

  • Thousands of soft white lights that wrap the 100 majestic royal palms and Canary Island date trees, lining the hotel’s 1,040 ft. main drive
  • 170,000 twinkle lights, 8,000 ornaments, 12,000 feet of ribbon and 126 bows create an atmosphere of cheer and wonder 
  • Two 18 ft. evergreen trees and a sculptural menorah illuminate the hotel lobby
  • Flagler Steakhouse showcases a stunning 14 ft. tree in its lobby
  • The Italian Restaurant features a whimsical 7.5 ft. nutcracker-inspired tree 
  • Holiday-themed, socially distanced events and activities for guests and families
