The Boca Hotel, nestled in the heart of one of South Florida’s most wealthy and beautiful oceanfront towns, is the place to stay when you want a vacation. Whether looking to get away with the kids, relax with your other half or have some “me” time, you will find everything your looking for.
Boasting two 18 hole golf courses, 30 tennis courts, a four star spa, seven swimming pools, 32-slip marina, kids club, beach club and more, you can guarantee everyone will be take care of. Despite the size of the hotel, even at full occupancy, the quality of service is never compromised. Rooms are sleek, clean and simple, with sensational views from the tower that overlook the picturesque intercostal. Waterway.
Those wishing to relax can check into the Spa Palazzo and experience world-class massages, facials and treatments within a Mediterranean palace setting. In terms of dining, I would recommend watching the sunset from Cielo, at the top of the tower (the best view of south Florida) with a cocktail, before dining at the exceptionally delicious and atmospheric, Lucca. The breakfast buffet has one of the best omelet stations you could ask for, alongside quirky attributes such as “acai” shots for good health. Romantic walkways surround the hotel; stroll across the croquet field or admire view from the boardwalk.
The Boca Raton Resort dates back to 1926, but has developed into a hotel that boasts immaculately preserved tradition, such as the Mizner architecture, alongside modern developments such as Serendipity café, and boutique onsite shopping. The beach club, accessible via a complimentary boat shuttle, is an entity in itself, with three pools, including an adult only pool, two tiki bars and the Beaches restaurant to keep you entertained. Order the “chop-chop” salad that is shaken right before you, and a “coconut mojito,” to experience true island living. Those seeking a more active afternoon, can check into the hotel’s new surf school or dock a catamaran to explore the ocean and snorkel.
The Boca Hotel is an obvious choice for a wedding or event destination, with 146,000 square feet of events space, and multiple locations choices throughout the resort. Exquisite catering, floral services and more, the hotel offers custom bridal and events packages that to help pull off any special occasion with ease.
It is clear, whatever you seek, this hotel can provide from the moment of check in, and with a unique sense of South Florida style. To make your reservation today, call 888-543-1277 or visit www.bocaresort.com.
Miami is best know for the high rises of Ocean Drive, however smaller, more “boutique” hotels have started popping up, and rising in popularity. This may have something to do with the growth of business traveling through the area; not everyone is in Miami to party, and sometimes all you need is a quiet place to rest your head.
Family founded, run and developed, Hotel 18 offers visitors a unique experience right off of the action on Collins Avenue and only two blocks from the beautiful white South Beach. Tucked away, one enters through a beautiful, lush courtyard to discover real hospitality and elegant simplicity. The rooms are beach-style but airy and updated; in fact most rooms comes fully equipped with a kitchen, living space and large flat screens. Wifi is also available throughout the hotel. Bathrooms are new, marbled and well lit. Service throughout the hotel is spot on, and very much personable.
This hotel gives guests a sense of privacy, with rooms overlooking the courtyard, where one can sit and reflect under the palms. The beds here are incredible, which is ideal for any long distance travelers or professionals seeking their sleep. Easy check in, no fuss and no South Beach drama, sum up the hotel. However, if you do decide to venture out on the town, you are one street from the action. The hotel also provides you with any information you need to get around South Beach, and a list of all the location attractions.
If you are looking for location, comfort and care on your trip through Miami, this is the place to go. HOTEL 18 is located on 230 18th St Miami Beach, FL 33139

I stand in awe of true beauty – balmy, calm and open bound, the oceans of The Keys stretch before me…
Newly renovated, yet true to beach style, this little piece of paradise invites you to come in unwind and find simple relaxation in the breathtaking aesthetics of the Keys’ natural environment.
Luxurious but understated, the newly renovated Checca Lodge mixes the theme of beachy wooden bungalows with high end hotel, in suits that overlook a jetty to the ocean and epic ‘canvas worthy’ sunrises not to be missed. Open your double glass doors, to find your balcony nesting a large outdoor tub draped with white linen, positioned beside a waterfall shower.
The resort itself is quaint; wooden ceiling fans, cool wooden decking and a tiki bar all in the old laid back style of the ‘Keys.’ It’s clear the Cheeca Lodge has a long history, and it’s not hard to see why. The resort is whatever you want it to be; there are kayaks, paddleboards, snorkel trips off the dock, fishing trips and more. Yet it is first and foremeost ‘laid back,’ not casual, just more inviting of a slower pace. Indeed, from the calm waters that stretch before you, on their sandy beach, to the lulls of tinkling boats and views of endless palms, Cheeca will enchant you.
This I can promise… leaving Cheeca Lodge and Islamorada will be the hardest part of your trip.
