TOP 4 BOCA RATON RESORTS
Boca Raton is not only home to celebrity residents and stunning beaches, but the city also has an amazingly diverse range of stylish resorts to suit any traveller. Although many are set on the beautiful beach front, it’s definitely worth exploring further inland for venues with a Mediterranean style in the Downtown area. From large, family friendly venues to smaller boutique properties, Boca Raton has something for everyone as the dazzling jewel in the crown that is the iconic sunshine state of Florida.
For a great deal on simple yet chic accommodation, head to Hyatt Place in Boca Raton’s Downtown, offering spacious elegant rooms for great prices. Set near to a range of cultural destinations including the Boca Raton Historical Museum and the local art and children’s museum, this is the place to be for those looking to get under the skin of the area. Dining is good for those on the go with breakfast and bar bites, as well as a ‘Coffee to Cocktails’ Bar. Cool down after a day of exploring at the rooftop pool!
If you’re looking for activities, look no further than the glamorous Boca Beach Club, a Waldorf Astoria Resort which sits in a prime position on the beachfront. There are a host of amenities to spoil you for choice including 11 restaurants and lounges, 7 swimming pools, and 2 acclaimed golf courses set on half a mile of private beach. Whether you’re relaxing in the award-winning spa, receiving a private tennis lesson from resident coach Jimmy Connors, enjoying paddle boarding, a game of tennis or assisting with turtle nesting, a dull day at this resort simply doesn’t exist.
Luxury at its finest can be found at the only Relais & Chateaux property in South Florida, the Royal Blues Hotel. This boutique art hotel, located in Deerfield Beach, has just 12 exclusive rooms, each elegantly designed to reflect a luxury, modern yacht with Italian marble and rich leather details. Guests are welcomed with a crisp glass of champagne on arrival, whilst the hotel’s stunning Chanson restaurant has a 1,500-gallon saltwater aquarium cascading elegantly above diners.
Many celebrities (including Ariana Grande) grew up and still live in Boca Raton. For the best chance of seeing an A-lister, head north of the area to the neighbouring beachfront Delray Beach Marriott. You’ll be a stones-throw away from Palm Beach’s world-famous residents including Jon Bon Jovi, Tiger Woods and Bill Gates. With a fitness centre, room service and spa, you can act like Hollywood royalty during your time away.
If you’re looking for that glamorous holiday that an A-lister would envy, head to Town Center at Boca Raton®, just six miles from the beach and less than an hour from Miami International Airport where guests can pick up luxury purchases from the vast range of 220 stores. From luxury designers such as Louis Vuitton and Gucci, to family favourites such as Gap and Abercrombie & Fitch, there are a variety of stores to suit every style and budget. Perfect for a day trip, this Simon Shopping Destination is also home to a variety of dining options including fresh salads at True Food Kitchen, and sophisticated Italian cuisine at Davinci’s of Boca.
