Searching for an address to experience the relaxed beach lifestyle of Florida’s Gold Coast? You’ll find none fresher, more inviting or, for that matter, more engaging than The Seagate Hotel & Spa in Delray Beach. Newly opened in November 2009, the seaside city’s first independent luxury hotel embraces the ocean’s-edge ambiance of its location through an array of upscale amenities including an elegant spa, a contemporary menu focused on fresh local produce at Atlantic Grille, and nearby beach club privileges.
The perfect spot for enjoying relaxing “staycations,” intimate beach experiences and stylish weddings and events, The Seagate Hotel & Spa resides on East Atlantic Avenue, just steps from the beach and right in the heart of the city’s vibrant arts and entertainment district.
With architecture by Randall Stofft of Stofft Architects of Delray Beach, The Seagate Hotel & Spa reveals an authentic slice of local life wrapped in a stylish façade that celebrates the relaxed vibe of the city. Interiors by local designer Chris Leighton of the Leighton Design Group only add to this effect, with a welcoming ambiance that embraces guests mere steps into the lobby. There, natural elements, sea-inspired fixtures and a 5,000-gallon aquarium splashing with colorful sea life play off custom-designed furniture.
Opened along with the hotel, Atlantic Grille is already among the most desirable dining destinations in Delray Beach. With seating for 245 indoors and out on the terrace, the restaurant presents the signature dining experience of Executive Chef Adam Gottlieb, formerly of the Palm Beach Yacht Club in West Palm Beach. Gottlieb draws inspiration from a variety of local provisions, such as seafood freshly caught in the nearby Atlantic. His menu also highlights pastas, steak and an abundance of seasonal ingredients. The hotel bar coaxes guests with a relaxed atmosphere that encourages conviviality over stylish libations.
Each of The Seagate Hotel & Spa’s 162 guest rooms features exquisite contemporary designer furnishings from the upscale Wendall Castle Collection. Among the pick of hotel accommodations are three superb Spa Suites designed for private in-room treatments. Each is furnished with an infinity whirlpool tub, glass-enclosed Kohler Waterhaven shower, and marble and river rock bath.
What’s a destination hotel without a spa these days? The Seagate offers the Seagate Spa, an elegant, 8,000 square-foot oasis for hotel guests and walk-in clients alike, with seven treatment rooms, a selection of signature treatments including the Hot Shell Massage, as well as a fitness center. Seagate Spa uses Amala certified organic skincare products, available at only a handful of spas throughout North America.
As if all of the above weren’t draw enough, guests can plunge into the beach experience at the Seagate Beach Club, a private members-only address with casual and fine-dining alternatives perched before gorgeous coastal views.
