The Boca Raton Undergoes $200 Million Renovation

The Boca Raton, the South Florida resort and private club, has unveiled its transformation of Harborside, part of its $200 million renovation project. The most significant update in its 95-year history includes the re-launch of Cloister, the original hotel that serves as the heart of Harborside. Cloister now features Sadelle’s in collaboration with Major Food Group; Palm Court cocktail lounge designed by architecture firm Rockwell Group; and the redesigned Spa Palmera in partnership with Colin Cowie. The Yacht Club re-emerges as the resort’s luxury lakefront accommodations for an adults-only hideaway, while a new highlight of the resort’s waterfront is the debut of Harborside Pool Club.

As when architect Addison Mizner opened the property in 1926, Cloister once again sports coastal white. With 294 rooms and suites, Cloister showcases new dining experiences and distinct amenities, including Spa Palmera. The 50,000-square-foot Alhambra-inspired spa has 44 treatment rooms, a tranquility pool, new Halotherapy Himalayan Salt Room and an Aemotio Vichy Shower by Lemi. Ritual Baths provide an enhanced menu of scent journeys for a personalized experience. A new Spa Café offers cold-pressed juice, cocktails and Mediterranean-inspired cuisine.

The Boca Raton’s second signature restaurant collaboration with Major Food Group, Sadelle’s, is open for breakfast and lunch. With locations in New York’s SoHo, Las Vegas and Paris, the restaurant serves classics such as sliced-to-order smoked salmon, bagels and crispy latkes. Sadelle’s Grab ‘n’ Go is open early through the afternoon. Palm Court, the lakefront cocktail lounge, received a modern redesign.

New dining venues expand The Boca Raton’s culinary collection following recent openings of The Flamingo Grill, and MB Supper Club, a dinner and entertainment experience. The Boca Raton will introduce new concepts this winter, including two new restaurants with Major Food Group, exploring Japanese and Italian cuisine, and Maison Rose, a macaron and chocolate shop.

Set on 200 waterfront acres, The Boca Raton comprises five hotels: Cloister, Yacht Club, Bungalows, Beach Club and Tower. Located near Cloister is the 112-suite, adults-only Yacht Club. All suites have private balconies with views of Lake Boca Raton and the yacht-lined promenade. Guests have access to the Spa Palmera pool and an all-new fine dining restaurant, Flybridge, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Designed for extended stays, Bungalows is a residential-style retreat with a private pool. Completely redesigned to showcase mid-century modern décor and contemporary conveniences, Bungalows offer 58 two-bedroom, two-bathroom residences with full kitchens. Complimentary daily continental breakfast and afternoon snacks are served at the new Bungalows Reception lounge. Beach Club is The Boca Raton’s getaway for "stylish jetsetters and laidback excursionists," set on half a mile of private golden beach. The 27-story Tower is set to be unveiled soon following a $45 million transformation.

The Boca Raton has launched the first phase of its Harborside Pool Club, which includes three pools, a 450-foot floating river, water slides, a Pool Bar serving cocktails and light bites, luxury cabanas with butler service, and Banyan Bunch kids club. The Pool Club will expand further this year to unveil a surf-wave simulator, 7,100-square-foot lawn, teens’ lounge, retail experiences and new waterfront dining.
