PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida offers customized suites

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. -- PGA National Resort & Spa - home of the PGA TOUR Honda Classic, five resort and championship level golf courses and world-class amenities - unveils new luxurious, customized suites as highlights of its recent $100 million revitalization.

In addition to the floor-to-ceiling makeover of its 379 guest rooms, the individually-themed "specialty" accommodations, designed by Boston's award-winning CBT Architects (www.cbtarchitects.com), are ideal for weddings, honeymoons, spa aficionados, golf buddy trips, football "big game" weekends and group getaways. Guests will discover spacious high-tech living areas with stunning property views from a private terrace or balcony and creature comforts galore.

• One-bedroom "Media Rooms" take the "Man Cave" concept to a sophisticated level and are perfect for fun golf buddy trips and "big game" football weekends. Crystal-clear large screen HD TVs, rich chocolate countertops, glass tiles and comfortable wrap-around sofas all make for the ultimate media experience while lounging in 21st century style.

• The "Bridal Spa" suites include soothing champagne colors, deeply rich wool carpeting and distinctive, elegant furnishings all making for a chic amorous motif. Limestone bathroom walls, a relaxing, large soaking tub and walk-in shower complete the décor and make for an extraordinary romantic retreat.

• Two elegant "Spa Suites" feature soothing ocean or rich earthen tones, luxurious king-size beds, spacious living area with sofa and comfortable side chairs, and large soaking tubs and walk-in showers. A second door from the bathroom leads to a private spa area complete with a professional massage table. In-room massages and facials are available on request.

"The specialty suites we designed for PGA National were inspired by the distinctive, exotic colors showcased by the resort's connection to its mesmerizing landscape," says Jacqueline McGee, associate principal of CBT Architects. "The soft blues of Floridian skies, shimmering reflections from its magnificent lake and rich earth tones of the lush area vegetation provided the décor palette for the spa, bridal and media suites."

"Our individually-themed suites showcase the lavish attention to detail we provide our guests," says Joel Paige, vice president and managing director. "CBT Architects did a wonderful job creating our specialized accommodations for honeymooners, spa lovers, sports fanatics, business retreats and golf groups to have the ultimate South Florida resort experience."
