The Boca Raton Resort and Club, a member of the Waldorf-Astoria Collection, is a little slice of Europe in South Florida. Set right on the white sand beaches against azure waters, the resort makes the perfect place to come and relax for holiday. Enter the long, stately drive to see the original pink manor rise out of groves of palm trees and intricately carved stucco.
Built in 1926 by architect Addison Mizner, the resort serves as both a luxury hotel and private club. A mix of old world charm colored in an iconic salmon-pink hugh, the resort received a 150 million dollar renovation in 2009. Guests and members can choose between sushi, Italian, dessert bars and seafood extravaganzas from some of the world’s most prominent chefs. An outpost of New York’s Serendipity, is even on property.
A championship 18-hole golf course is at your feet in the morning while waiter-attended pools and beach cabanas call your name after lunch. Tennis? You bet. Water sports? Why not? There really is no reason to leave the resort when you think about it. If you’re a first time visitor to Boca or want an easy-breezy getaway within a three hour flight from New York, Chicago or Atlanta – this is the choice to make.
