The opening of the so-called “resort within a resort” officially marks the completion of The Del’s “Master Plan,” a high-profile makeover designed to preserve the landmark hotel’s history while keeping the property “at the top of its game for another 100 years.”
Let’s take a closer look at Shore House, plus other post-renovation upgrades locals + visitors can find these days at The Del.
👑 The crowning achievement Designed by architecture firm LEO A DALY, Shore House debuted over the weekend with major elevated beach house vibes +these bells and whistles:
A dedicated resort entrance, check-in experience + valet. 🛎️
A zero-edge, oceanfront pool with day beds, loungers + private cabanas — and a poolside bar. 🏊
The Bistro, a new all-day dining eatery with chef’s table events, wine tastings + demos. 🍷
Lounge areas + fire pits, where a “Blue Hour” menu with chef’s curated light bites + a signature cocktail will be offered daily, just after sunset — as blue-hued twilight rolls in. 🌅
Wellness offerings like seaside spin classes, beach yoga + pilates, and personal training. 🧘
Did you know? Shore House is the fifth “neighborhood” experience within the hotel — in addition to Beach Village, The Cabanas (the center of The Del), The Victorian (hello, original red turrets + architecture), and The Views. Shore House rates start at $1,299 per night.
The Del’s general manager, Harold Rapoza, said this final piece of the renovation puzzle is “the crowning achievement” of the hotel’s Master Plan.
