The Boca Raton Luxury Resort

The iconic Boca Raton opened in 1926, spanning 337 acres, fronting both Lake Boca & the Atlantic Ocean.

BOCA RATON, Florida – The Boca Raton Luxury Resort has unveiled its transformation of Harborside, part of the luxury golf destination’s $200 million reimagination that positions it as one of South Florida’s more desirable resort/private club combinations. The most significant evolution in its 95-year history includes the relaunch of Cloister, the original hotel that serves as the heart of Harborside.

Cloister now features Sadelle’s in partnership with Major Food Group, Palm Court cocktail lounge designed by architecture firm Rockwell Group, and the redesigned Spa Palmera in collaboration with Colin Cowie. Yacht Club reemerges as The Boca Raton’s luxury lakefront accommodations for an adults-only hideaway. A new highlight of the resort’s waterfront is the debut of Harborside Pool Club, featuring multiple pools, waterslides, and luxury experiences.

The resort and club’s grand entrance has been extensively renovated, including every detail along the main drive and throughout the lobby. Featuring 294 rooms and suites, Cloister showcases grand architecture, exciting new dining, and distinct amenities, including Spa Palmera. The 50,000-square-foot, Alhambra-inspired spa has been stunningly reimagined with lifestyle expert Colin Cowie. In addition to 44 treatment rooms, the enclave features a tranquility pool, new Halotherapy Himalayan Salt Room, and 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 today for breakfast and lunch. With locations in New York’s SoHo, Las Vegas, and Paris, the restaurant serves quintessential classics such as sliced-to-order smoked salmon, Sadelle’s famous bagels, and crispy latkes. Sadelle’s Grab ‘n Go is open early through the afternoon for a quick taste.

Designed by Rockwell Group and adjacent to Cloister’s lobby, the restaurant preserves the historic Garden Room’s architecture of dark wood beams and window arches while wrapping the walls in Sadelle’s signature blue lacquer paneling to create the ambiance of a European patisserie.

Palm Court features soaring ceilings and breathtaking coastal views. The modern redesign of the sun-drenched lounge celebrates its historic Spanish Colonial-style architecture. A central bar features brass shelving and a backlit bar die featuring custom peacock green ombre piped glass.

These new dining venues expand The Boca Raton’s culinary 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.


“A New Golden Era of The Boca Raton is a celebration of our legacy within the community and internationally,” said Daniel A. Hostettler, President & CEO of The Boca Raton. “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.”

Set on 200 waterfront acres, The Boca Raton features an outstanding golf course and five distinct hotels. Nearby Cloister is the all-suite Yacht Club, now reserved for adults only. Yacht Club’s 112 elegant suites feature private balconies with sweeping views of Lake Boca Raton and the yacht-lined promenade. Personal concierges and floor valets prepare every detail, and Yacht Club guests receive exclusive access to the stunning Spa Palmera pool as well as an all-new fine dining restaurant, Flybridge, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.

For extended stays, Bungalows is a residential-style retreat tucked in a quiet corner of the property with a private pool. Completely redesigned to showcase mid-century modern décor and contemporary conveniences, Bungalows offer 58 spacious two-bedroom, two-bathroom residences with full kitchens. Complimentary daily continental breakfast and afternoon snacks are served at the new Bungalows Reception lounge.

For an oceanfront luxury escape, Beach Club is The Boca Raton’s getaway for stylish jetsetters and laidback excursionists, set on half a mile of private golden beach. On the horizon, the 27-story Tower will be unveiled soon, following a $45 million transformation.
