In 1926, Palm Beach society architect Addison Mizner ventured to the frontier swamp of Boca Raton and created his Jazz Age masterpiece, the 100-room Cloister Inn. Although the Florida land crash closed the inn after just one season, the property was eventually resurrected as the 1,043-room Boca Raton Resort & Club, which is undergoing an ambitious 21st-century makeover courtesy of LXR Luxury Resorts and an all-star ambience team. Thierry Despont (who put his stamp on the bar at the Dorchester, in London) lightened the Spanish-revival promenades with epic Florida à go-go murals. Alexandra Champalimaud (of New York’s Carlyle Hotel) created a series of Boca Bungalows. Guests will find outposts of New York’s La Goulue and the Old Homestead Steak House, as well as the Monkey Bar, a nod to Mizner’s penchant for sashaying about town with his pet monkey.
