The votes are in. White Elephant Nantucket, The Wauwinet, and White Elephant Palm Beach have been named to Travel + Leisure's prestigious list of the top 500 hotels of this year. We are pleased to receive this honor, voted on by their readers and our guests.
On the heels of this award, our iconic harborside hotel and Garden Cottages at White Elephant Nantucket will debut a complete renovation and restoration opening on May 4, 2023. From the lobby to the guest rooms, our guests will experience a modern take on classic Nantucket. New art will be installed throughout, resulting from the brand's all-new Artist in Residency Program. Be among the first to experience the newly renovated White Elephant Nantucket this spring.
The effortlessly romantic Wauwinet is the island's only Relais & Châteaux property—known for its five-star service and fine dining at the award-winning TOPPER's. It's also the island's sole hotel with access to two private beaches, between the Atlantic surf and the bay.
White Elephant Palm Beach showcases the brand's signature blend of historic details and contemporary flair. The 32-room boutique hotel is known for its elegant 120-piece modern and pop art collection, as well as acclaimed Lola 41°, another Nantucket export. The hotel is located on the island's original Main Street, steps from the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway. White Elephant Palm Beach was ranked #1 Resort in Florida By Travel + Leisure's World's Best Awards in 2022 for award-winning service, design and amenities.
"We are honored to be recognized by Travel + Leisure in this esteemed, reader-chosen award," noted Khaled Hashem, President of White Elephant Resorts. "We're thrilled to have three boutique hotels recognized among the 500 best in the world, and it is a true testament to our teams on property who provide such impactful guest experiences and levels of hospitality."
