The Best Staycation Resorts Near Delray Beach

Posted by Jeremy Olsher on Friday, September 28th, 2018 at 2:14pm.

Although we already live in paradise here in South Florida, sometimes it’s nice to pack a bag and go somewhere to kick back and recharge. Luckily there are many incredible resorts just a short drive away, making it possible to take a staycation without having to travel far at all. Here are some of our favorite Palm Beach County resorts to escape for a staycation!

Sundy House in Delray Beach

Although it’s only located a few blocks from the Ave., Sundy House feels like you’re somewhere far from Delray. Built in 1902, the Victorian structure has an Old Florida feel, and outside you’ll find serene paths of turtle and fish-filled ponds, waterfalls, streams, gazebos, and the oldest documented Royal Poinciana tree in Palm Beach County, planted in 1919. Sundy House also has a hidden cenote, and a freshwater pool to take a dip in.

If you’re staying at Sundy House for the weekend, there’s no need to venture out for brunch. Sundy House has the BEST Sunday brunch buffet in Delray, offering omelet, crepe, and carving stations, a selection of charcuterie and cheeses, a variety of hot dishes, a seafood bar that includes oysters and king crab legs, and an incredible dessert spread if you manage to save room!

The Breakers in Palm Beach

Palm Beach's most lavish, long-lived landmark is steeped in history and tradition, but thanks to constant reinvestment by the owners, it always feels fresh and relevant. We can’t get enough of The Breakers’ bungalows by the pool, the seafood bar, and fun kid activities, such as jet skis, banana boats, golf lessons and more.

Eau Palm Beach in Manalapan

Just a 20 minute drive north of Delray Beach is the Eau Palm Beach in Manalapan. Luxurious but low-key, the Eau will make you feel transported to a chic, beachy paradise at the Eau Palm Beach. There are two beachside pools to relax at, and whatever you do, do NOT skip a trip to the Eau Spa!

There’s no shortage of amazing resorts in Palm Beach County, so we didn’t want to end this article without mention these other great staycation spots worth looking into:

Boca Raton Resort

Jupiter Beach Resort & Spa

Brazilian Court

The Colony Hotel

Waterstone Resort & Marina

Crane’s Beach House

The Chesterfield

Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach
