The Boca Raton

Boca Raton's fabled favorite
The fabled The Boca Raton has enamored visitors for decades. Renowned local architect Addison Mizner, who led the development of Boca Raton and a number of other South Florida cities, was the mastermind behind the resort’s Mediterranean and Spanish Colonial Revival aesthetic and that distinctive bright-pink exterior.

The resort unfolds across 200 waterfront acres, featuring a spa, a championship golf course, a Racquet Club with 16 tennis courts and six pickleball courts, an expansive half-mile stretch of private beach, two pool clubs, a marina, more than 14 restaurants and lounges, an art gallery and five distinctive accommodation styles. Check out rooms in Cloister hotel, which dates to 1926, when it opened as a 100-room inn.

While The Boca Raton has evolved into a modern-day, ultra-luxurious resort, it still embraces Mizner’s original vision and, upon pulling up the grand drive, you’ll be enveloped by its illustrious past.
