Travel agents with clients looking for a ritzy sojourn in the much-coveted Palm Beach Island area will have the opportunity to book a new property starting in late fall 2008. The Palm House, a condo-hotel project set to open next year

Matthews Hospitality Group, LLC has announced plans for The Palm House, a high-profile condominium-hotel project on Palm BeachIsland—a chic destination in Palm Beach proper, a barrier island 65 miles north of Miami and easily reached via Palm BeachAirport.

The Palm House, which has undergone a $20 million renovation over the past two years, will boast such typical must-have amenities as restaurants and a full-service spa.

When residents are away, their condominiums, which will range from $1.25 to more than $3 million to buy, could be available to rent. Note: This might be the last condominium-hotel project approved in the area.

The project's prime location is steps from the beach and close to swanky
