On a recent visit to Toronto, Ivy Wong, Associate Director, The Breakers Palm Beach hotel, presented to a group of agents at New Wave Travel. With just over nine years with the family owned and operated hotel under her belt, Wong gave agents a taste of the iconic hotel’s history and looked ahead to the future.
The Breakers is a luxury oceanfront property built in 1896, featuring 538 guest rooms and suites -- including the ultra-luxury Flagler Club on the top two floors -- 10 restaurants, two championship golf courses and four pools on 140 acres.

With more than $30 million invested each year towards improvements and refurbishments, The Breakers’ lobby is the latest space to undergo a makeover, with the addition of a custom-designed, intricately woven 161-foot long carpet in Renaissance-style botanical motifs.
Opening soon is the latest addition to the resort, Via Flagler, a Mediterranean inspired ‘destination’ featuring courtyards, boutiques and eateries -- including the soon-to-be 10th restaurant at The Breakers, Henry’s Palm Beach, an American bistro experience.
The tagline for the property is: ‘Once you stay, you’ll understand’.
New Wave Travel consultant Margaret Pagliarulo can attest. She told Open Jaw about her recent stay in June 2019.

“The service was top notch, everything was seamless, and at the same time it felt warm and cozy. The property is stunning, with great attention to detail.” When asked about selling The Breakers, Pagliarulo says: “It’s a very easy sell, as an add-on to someone taking a cruise out of Florida. It’s a nice way to end or start their trip.”
Adie Matus-Schlossberg, Senior Sales Executive at New Wave Travel, added her impressions:
“I was blown away by the old world charm and feel. Even though it’s a big property, over 140 acres, the staff seem to know you and go out of their way to help you. I was very impressed with that.”
