BOCA RATON, Fla. – South Florida’s Boca Raton Resort & Club has announced the most significant evolution in its history, and its new-again name—The Boca Raton. For more than four decades, from 1944 to 1988, the name “The Boca Raton” signified a luxurious lifestyle. Over the coming months, the property will usher in an entirely new perspective on travel.
This new era at The Boca Raton and The Boca Raton Club begins with a $175 million phase-one physical transformation, to be unveiled this winter. There will be bespoke enhancements to every guest experience, from accommodations to culinary concepts and programming.
“The Boca Raton has a remarkable history as an internationally recognized landmark and a private escape for in-the-know travelers,” said Daniel A. Hostettler, president and CEO of The Boca Raton. “This ‘New Golden Era’ will pay homage to the resort’s storied past while introducing innovative new amenities and experiences that will inspire both members and guests and define us as one of the world’s most preeminent luxury resorts and private clubs.”
The Boca Raton will feature a collection of five hotels, each with its own personality and style.
– Beach Club: The oceanfront escape features three pools set on a private stretch of golden beach. The hotel’s new Mediterranean dining concepts, Marisol and the Lobby Lounge, are curated by lifestyle guru Colin Cowie.
– Bungalows: Ideal for extended stays, these three-story residential hideaways features two-bedroom suites with full kitchens and furnished terraces and balconies. The Bungalows offer a private pool and dedicated amenities.
– Yacht Club: The adult-only, all-suite luxury hotel features private balconies and views of Lake Boca Raton and its yacht-lined promenade. Personal concierges and floor valets prepare every detail. Reopening in winter 2021.
– The Cloister: Stay where it all started amidst grand architecture, lush grounds, and hidden gardens as an unforgettable backdrop. Located in the heart of the action, the resort’s original structure is just steps from the 18-hole golf course, racquet club, and spa. The Cloister is being revitalized and will reopen in winter 2021 with immersive experiences and rotating art collections.
– Tower: The 27-story tower is undergoing a $45 million complete transformation by Rockwell Group. With vistas of sparkling waterways, the all-new luxury hotel will introduce flexible suite configurations of two to three bedrooms. It will reopen in the first quarter 2022.
This winter, the resort will unveil Harborside Pool Club, a four-acre lakefront venue featuring luxury cabanas, four pools, a 450-foot lazy river, two three-story-high slides, a double standing wave, a retail boutique, a 7,100-square-foot event lawn, a 5,000-square-foot kids’ club, and a teens’ lounge, as well as new waterfront dining options.
Resort owners MSD Partners and Northview Hotel Group are stewarding the property into its new phase with an award-winning team of builders and creators. Visionaries include architecture and design firm Rockwell Group, landscape architecture firm EDSA, branding and marketing agency King & Partners, and GarciaStromberg, a firm of architects, designers, and artists.
