You’ll love what we’ve done with our renovation at PGA National Resort & Spa. Aesthetically, we made every accommodation new with stylish bedding, furnishings, wall and floor coverings – even our guestroom corridors have been made over with subdued lighting and new carpeting. Technologically-speaking, we installed 42-inch flat-screen televisions, and iPod docking stations, in every room. And wait until you read the detail on our indulgent new specialty suites – creating these as part of the renovation was like manifesting dreams for lovers of luxury and relaxation.
PGA National Resort´s Palm Beach restaurants & bars
It doesn’t always follow that resort dining rises to the caliber of “destination dining” – particularly when the destination is Palm Beach.
Not so at PGA National Resort & Spa: The signature Ironwood Steak & Seafood is just one of two Palm Beach restaurants to earn the Wine Spectator 2012 Award of Excellence (wait until you see the wine list), and the iBar hosts one of the area’s consummate happy hours – you’ll understand when you sample the culinary creations, sip on your favorite martini or get wrapped up in the live music and social events.
Truth be told, all nine of PGA National’s culinary concepts rank among the best Palm Beach Gardens restaurants.
The hotel offers pool- and spa-side venues (in each, the menu and vibe precisely match the setting – think frozen margaritas and fish tacos alongside the zero-entry resort pool; smoked salmon foccacia and fresh fruit smoothies at the Waters of the World spa café).
For casual gatherings, drop into one of the lounges or variations on the sports pub.
Talk about a classic ending to a championship day: Post-game, celebrate with drinks and lunch or dinner – with a view to the legendary courses.
As for the four-year, $100-million-dollar resort-wide renovation? It made two of the restaurants even better – see for yourself at Palm Terrace and Bar 91.
Whatever you’re craving, you’ll immediately discern: When it comes to Palm Beach dining, PGA National Resort & Spa leads with impeccable quality and variety tailored to your desires and the one-of-a-kind settings.
