Sometimes you just need to get away without having to deal with the hassle of getting away. You want the luxury of maid service and quiet time without having to pack a suitcase and board a plane.
That’s pretty much the definition of a staycation and the reason why the boyfriend and I ended up at the Boca Raton Resort and Club.
We threw two outfits into a weekender bag, jumped in the car for a quick 45 minute drive, and before we knew it we were at the bar kicking our staycation off with a fruity martini before lunch.
We then spent the day exploring the resort, there may or may not have been additional adult beverages involved 🍹 We jumped on the water ferry that takes you over to the Boca Beach Club where we lathered on the sunscreen and soaked up some rays.
For dinner we decided to explore Boca and grabbed an Uber to Mizner Park for some delicious Greek cuisine at Ouzo Bay and then strolled the shops. I’m so happy we did this since not only was it super close and the meal delicious, it was a great way to get out and see Boca (not to mention walk off all of the food).
Back to our “home away from home” for the evening, we ended the night in the Monkey Bar for a nightcap and fell into a deep, food and drink induced coma. We woke to sunshine and no alarm clock :)
A staycation would not be complete without coffee made by someone else and a delicious breakfast you didn’t have to cook. With the sunlight streaming through the big glass windows overlooking the water and a day ahead of us with no plans, we ate an extra pastry, got another cup of coffee, and completely relaxed.
Words can’t describe how beautiful the resort is. Everywhere you turn is green and perfectly manicured. It’s as if they have little lawn fairies that run around all day tending to each and every square inch of the place. I wonder if I could hire them to come work their cleaning magic on my apartment…
We did end up squeezing in a bit of physical activity to counterbalance all of our indulging before headed back to reality. Their tennis facilities were amazing, not to mention the staff was so helpful. Next time we return we’re going to give their golf course a swing since we’ve heard great things about that as well. This place is pretty much staycation heaven.
Boca Raton Resort and Club, we will be back soon. Very soon :)
