Highland Beach, the exclusive stretch of beachfront tucked between Delray Beach and Boca Raton, is renowned for its privacy and seclusion. Guests headed to the Delray Sands Resort on Highland Beach can expect the look and feel of an upscale boutique hotel, with a curated blend of Florida’s relaxed beach culture and modern luxury.
STAY: Surround Yourself with Coastal Calm
Step into one of the suites or guest rooms at the resort, and you’ll see that the look and feel of the beachfront setting is carried throughout. Bright and airy, the 115 rooms and suites are decorated with a muted palette of sea blue, driftwood, and plenty of natural texture. Each room comes with its own furnished balcony or terrace for appreciating that stellar beachfront view.
EAT: Dining with a View
From the plush, tufted clamshell booths encased in teak to the decor that evokes bubbles under water, the look of the recently renovated Latitudes is chic and modern, but with a beachy, ocean-inspired twist. Order one of the restaurant’s signature seafood dishes – simply prepared fish so fresh, you’ll swear the chef caught it by hand just for you. The Latitudes Sunday Brunch and happy hour are also legendary.
PLAY: The Beach Is Beckoning
