Sometimes, the best vacation is one spent immersed in luxury, comprised of lavish accommodations and amenities. Other times, the dream getaway is a remote rendezvous that celebrates the simple joys of life.
Fortunately, you don’t have to choose between the two at the Boardwalk Plaza Hotel in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. Featuring unique, Victorian-inspired rooms and overlooking the sun-kissed shoreline of an oceanside beach, this AAA Four Diamond Award-winning hotel unites luxury and leisure.
Luxury comes in the form of Old World decor and modern amenities. The Victorian-themed guest rooms evoke the elegance of yesteryear with authentic and reproduced period antiques while a host of add-ons ensure you’ll be pampered. Eighty-four unique rooms and suites feature varying amenities like private balconies, Whirlpool bathtubs, flat-screen televisions, or soothing hot tubs all with access to the heated, indoor spa-pool, and most with breathtaking Atlantic Ocean views.
But, the ocean offers much more than stunning scenery. Awarded a Five-Star water quality rating in 2011 by the Natural Resources Defense Council, Rehoboth Beach serves up an abundance of ocean adventures that includes swimming, fishing, and sailing. Or, sit in the sand as the rolling waves whisper a lullaby and the sun’s rays warm your skin. With a beach in your backyard, you’ll be transported to a world of tranquility.
“Guests always tell us that once they walk through our doors they feel that they’ve stepped into another world - that they can take a deep breath and really relax,” Marketing Director Jennifer Zerby said.
And, the beach isn’t the only place to relax here. The onsite restaurant Victoria’s, set on an oceanside patio, allows you to inhale the salty sea air and the fresh cuisine. Come afternoon, sip a cup of traditional Victorian tea. Or, sip on a glass of wine at the Plaza Pub, which features welcoming leather chairs and an elegant walnut bar. Best of all, the hotel, restaurant, and pub are open to guests 365 days a year.
The paradise extends off property, where a wooden boardwalk serves as a gateway to eclectic shops, an ocean of arts, and a bevy of beach activities. Update your wardrobe at the trendy clothing stores, soak up some culture at the Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival, or hang ten on a surfing safari.
“Rehoboth Beach is a wonderful resort town - and once you are at the Boardwalk Plaza you can park your car and step onto the beach, walk to great shops and restaurants, and just truly get away from the world’s hassles,” Zerby said.
And, though you are getting away from it all, that doesn’t mean you can’t have it all at the Boardwalk Plaza Hotel, where luxury meets leisure.
