AMMG is particularly pleased to have secured the world-renowned four star Boca Raton Resort & Club for our May 2008 conference. Fresh from more than $100 million in renovations, Boca Raton Resort & Club in fabled Boca Raton, the heart of Florida's Gold Coast, is situated on 356 oceanfront acres in south Palm Beach County. Just 24 miles north of Fort Lauderdale / Hollywood International Airport (FLL) and only 28 miles from Palm Beach International Airport (PBI), Boca Raton Resort & Club offers easy access and added flight options via airlines serving either airport.
Boca Raton Resort & Club is a truly complete resort offering all of the amenities, facilities and services you expect to find at one of the world's great beachfront properties. Honored with Meetings & Conventions' "Gold Key Award" for 23 consecutive years, this truly remarkable piece of history continues to evolve. Recently, an array of impressive additions and renovations have brought new vibrancy, warmth and life, making the luxurious and sophisticated accommodations of Boca Raton Resort & Club even better, brighter and more impressive, and delivering a level of elegance, comfort and design sensibility unrivaled among Boca Raton hotels.
The original structure of the resort estate – the “Cloister” – was built in 1926 by legendary architect Addison Mizner and reflects Spanish-Mediterranean, Moorish and Gothic influences. It is characterized by hidden gardens, barrel tile roofs, archways, ornate columns, finials, intricate mosaics, fountains and beamed ceilings of ornate pecky cypress.
With over 1,000 deluxe guest rooms in five unique styles, the exclusive Boca Raton Resort & Club is best described as a collection of five distinct boutique hotels situated on one expansive property. It includes the Cloister, the Yacht Club, the Tower, Boca Beach Club, the Boca Bungalows, Boca Country Club, conference facilities, two 18-hole championship golf courses, 30 tennis courts, Spa Palazzo, a golf clubhouse, six pools, a 32-slip marina with full fishing and boating facilities, and a half-mile of private beach.
Like the legendary Alahambra Palace after which it is fashioned, Spa Palazzo is designed to replicate paradise on earth, both structurally and through specialty services and amenities. The elegant sanctuary of health and rejuvenation features 44 treatment rooms, an opulent wet room, an eclectic menu of spa treatments, sunning terraces and 10,000 square feet of tranquil gardens featuring waterfall whirlpools and a spa pool with underwater music.
In addition to private dining (room service) resort guests can indulge in any of the eight outstanding restaurants offering variety in cuisine, atmosphere and formality.
Other recreational activities include boat rentals and charters and a fitness center complete with a full complement of cardiovascular and weight training equipment.
Area attractions include the Town Center, Royal Palm Plaza and Mizner Park, all within five miles, offering many fine stores and boutiques. A complimentary shuttle service is available daily to Mizner Park. Cultural attractions include the Boca Raton Museum of Art and the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens. Eco-tourism adventures include airboat rides through the Everglades, hands-on interactive displays at Gumbo Limbo Nature Center, and a variety of parks and beaches.
