BOCA RATON, Fla. – South Florida’s The Boca Raton has unveiled its transformation of Harborside as part of the resort’s $200 million renovations and upgrades.
The most significant feature includes the relaunch of Cloister, the original hotel that serves as the center of Harborside. Cloister now features restaurant Sadelle’s in partnership with Major Food Group, Palm Court cocktail lounge, and the redesigned Spa Palmera. Yacht Club re-emerges as The Boca Raton’s lakefront accommodations for an adults-only audience. A new highlight of the resort’s waterfront is the debut of Harborside Pool Club, featuring multiple pools, waterslides, and luxury experiences.
The grand entrance of the hotel has been extensively renovated, including the main drive and the lobby. Featuring 294 rooms and suites, Cloister includes the expansive Spa Palmera. The 50,000-square-foot spa features 44 treatment rooms, a tranquility pool, Halotherapy Himalayan Salt Room, Aemotio Vichy Shower by Lemi, and several scented ritual baths.
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 items such as sliced-to-order smoked salmon, bagels, and latkes.
Palm Court, a lakefront cocktail lounge, features high ceilings and coastal views. Bossa Nova jazz musicians entertain while cocktails are shaken and stirred with flair. The modern redesign of the lounge celebrates its historic Spanish Colonial-style architecture.
These new dining venues expand The Boca Raton’s collection, following recent openings of The Flamingo Grill and MB Supper Club. The Boca Raton will continue to introduce new concepts this winter, including two new restaurants with Major Food Group exploring Japanese and Italian cuisine, as well as Maison Rose, a macaron and chocolate shop.
“This new era at The Boca Raton is a celebration of our legacy within the community and internationally,” said Daniel A. Hostettler, president and CEO. “We worked closely with the Boca Raton Historical Society to meticulously restore our property and partnered with an award-winning team of builders and creators to reimagine each touchpoint. As we look toward the future, our focus remains unwavering—to provide an extraordinary experience that defines The Boca Raton as one of the world’s most renowned luxury resorts and private clubs.”
Nearby Cloister is the all-suite Yacht Club, now reserved for adults only. Yacht Club’s 112 suites feature private balconies with views of Lake Boca Raton and the yacht-lined promenade. Personal concierges and floor valets are readily available, and Yacht Club guests receive exclusive access to the Spa Palmera pool as well as a new fine-dining restaurant, Flybridge, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.
Lastly, the resort has launched phase one of its Harborside Pool Club, featuring three pools, a 450-foot floating river, water slides, luxury cabanas with personalized butler service, a pool bar, and the Banyan Bunch kids club. In 2022, the pool club will expand further to unveil a surf wave simulator, 7,100-square-foot event lawn, teens’ lounge, retail experiences, and new waterfront dining.
