The list of daily activities for children competes with the best day camps around while the adult activities, like the world-renowned Spa Palazzo, will indulge their desires for the ultimate pampering. Seven restaurants, bars, and musical entertainment make this resort a stay-and-play paradise. Leave your worries at home and live life in the lap of luxury.
Be sure to visit the Spa Palazzo as part of your resort experience. The sensual, exotic décor sets the mood for the array of custom treatments, many of which include a ritual bath. The bath incorporates the healing and rejuvenating power of water to reinforce the treatments of skilled massage therapists who begin every treatment by asking the question: “What will make this your most worthwhile experience?”
The luxurious Venetian space alone will put you in an altered state. After your service, finish with a series of water therapies that take place in a Moroccan inspired enclave.
When hunger strikes, you’ll feel spoiled with choices. If fine dining is in order, check out Cielo restaurant whose panoramic ocean views are spectacular. Start at the bar where an inspired mixologist will dazzle you with handcrafted cocktails and bar bites that include lobster pizza. Move into the stunning, floor-to-ceiling windowed dining room to experience the modern Mediterranean cuisine of Chef Nader Jaouhar, who enhances his freshly sourced ingredients with exotic spices to produce, full-flavored, layered taste sensations that are soul satisfyingly delicious.
Don’t miss the Mussels Catalan with chick peas, stewed tomatoes and peppers, chorizo, broccoli rabe, and harissa tomato sauce. For a main course, the lamb shank tagine with roasted peppers, pearl onions, faro and spiced dried fruit is a winner. When choosing a wine, put yourself in the able hands of Sommelier Roberto who will surprise and delight you with his boutique selections by the glass or bottle.
Aside from Cielo, Morimoto promises a delightful dining experience from the internationally acclaimed Sushi Master Masaharu Morimoto’s signature restaurant. This famed Japanese Iron Chef has gone global and one of his carefully selected outposts is at the resort. By reputation, this means you will have a superlative sampling of the freshest fish from around the world. And if the sea is not your cup of tea, no worries, the Kobe beef and lamb on the menu are world-class.
The Boca Raton Resort & Club is a destination in itself and those who have experienced it once, put it on the short list of must do again soon!
