One of the top luxury resorts in Florida, the iconic Boca Raton Resort and Club is getting a major makeover. Rebranded as The Boca Raton, the historic resort in (yes, you guessed right!) Boca Raton is undergoing over $170 million in renovations.

It’s all part of a plan to cement the property’s reputation as one of the Sunshine State’s top laces to visit for luxury vacations. The upgrades will be completed in time to celebrate the former Waldorf resort’s 100th anniversary in 2026.

The sprawling property – really five hotels in one big Florida resort destination – will see the addition of a number of new restaurants, a revamped spa experience, a new pool club, as well as a variety of new entertainment programs.


The Boca Raton Offers Five Unique Florida Experiences


Not unlike the famous Baha Mar resort in Nassau in The Bahamas, each of the resort’s accommodation options will be quite distinct from one another, ensuring guests a true ‘resort-within-a-resort’ experience.

Phase One of the nearly five-year project is currently underway and includes upgrades to pretty much every facet of the guest experience. In addition to room and suite enhancements and dining experiences, guests can also expect to find even more fun things to do on-site.

The five distinct accommodation options include:

  • Beach Club: Set overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, the Beach Club boasts three swimming pools set and a private beach, as well as Mediterranean-themed dining experiences
  • Yacht Club: The all-suite, adults-only Yacht Club is a luxury hotel features chic units with their own balconies with views over Lake Boca Raton and the promenade, as well as bespoke concierge and valet services
  • Bungalows: A great option for those needing more space and planning on longer stays, the very private Bungalows is a three-story building that features a number of two-bedroom suites with full kitchens, furnished balconies and terraces, and access to a private pool and its own amenities
  • Tower: Undergoing a complete revamp from top to bottom and opening in 2022, the all-new and opulent 27-story tall Tower features g incredible vires from each of its two- and three-bedroom suites, all offering butler service
  • Cloister: Part of the original resort, the Cloister features classy rooms and suites and is set amidst lush grounds and quiet gardens adjacent the resort’s 18-hole golf course, spa, and Racquet Club
