Boca Raton Resort’s Legendary Cloister

Travel to Boca Raton, Florida, USA

By Rusty Krause

In the midst of the Boca Raton Resort & Club, a sprawling pink complex in South Florida stands the legendary Cloister, the original 1926 resort building. Recognized as Addison Mizner’s architectural masterpiece, the Cloister has recently reopened after a $30-million renovation.

Today, an air of more casual elegance has replaced the formality of yesteryear. In addition to Cloister’s recent enhancements, the Yacht Club is the newest of the Resort’s five diverse types of accommodations. The high-rise Towers boast Intracoastal Waterway views, and the Golf Bungalows are just a stroke away from the fairways. Separated from the main resort complex, the Boca Beach Club sits on a half-mile private beach.

There was an aura of excitement as my husband and I entered the historic lobby and reception area. We reserved a guest room in the new Cloister Estates building. Our check-in was absolutely flawless, as a personal concierge is assigned to every guest. He assured us that our luggage was already delivered to the room and offered his assistance with dinner reservations.

All of the Cloister’s 318 guest rooms and suites provide modern conveniences in a setting that pays homage to the first architect’s Mediterranean style. Our well-appointed third-floor room featured a bright, neutral decor to complement the colonial influenced furnishing. Double doors opened to an expansive bathroom, complete with a glass-enclosed rainfall shower. Additional amenities included a roomy walk-in closet, a wall-mounted, flat-screen television, bedside reading lights and a Keurig machine with complimentary coffee.

During our stay, I came to realize that the Boca Raton Resort & Club does not just aim to please; it aims to surpass expectations. It’s no wonder my husband was looking for an excuse to extend our stay.
