Top 10 Luxury Beach Hotels for Less

The Seagate Hotel & Spa, Florida

Delray’s Seagate Hotel & Spa made a splash when it opened in November 2009 – it’s already racked up numerous accolades and we’re joining the bandwagon. This Florida property (about 15 miles from Palm Beach) scores big points in our book for its sophisticated boutique-hotel feel (think 154 rooms done up in mahogany woodwork with marble-and-stone bathrooms and private bars, and a beachy-chic lobby with 5,000-gallon aquarium). While the actual hotel is not technically on the beach (it’s a block away in Delray Beach town), the hotel offers complimentary trolley service to and from its own private beach club, located just a few clicks down Atlantic Avenue. The Seagate Beach Club reminds us of a casual country club, what with its own oceanfront pool, cabana rentals, two oceanview restaurants, clubhouse, and exclusive privileges like private beach access, towel and chair service, beverage service, water sports rentals, and complimentary Wi-Fi. When you’re not whiling away the hours sipping cocktails beachside (or poolside), try out the spa, complete with a Bikram Yoga studio, back at the hotel and dine at the on-site Atlantic Grille for fresh New American fare like rib pork chop with honey-grainy mustard glaze and sweet potato puree. Summer rates start from $159/night.
