Encore Boston Harbor is scheduled to open its doors June 23, bringing Five-Star hospitality and luxury to New England. The resort features a 210,000-square-foot casino; 15 dining and lounge venues; 671 guest rooms and suites; 50,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event space; an ultra-premium spa; and a four-season, six-acre Harborwalk, featuring pedestrian and bike paths, picnic park, gazebo, viewing decks, waterfront dining, and lush green space with magnificent floral displays. At $2.6 billion, Encore Boston Harbor is the country’s most expensive resort development of 2019.
The 210,000-square-foot casino is divided into two spacious sections, with high ceilings and hand-assembled red Murano glass chandeliers transplanted from their original home at Encore at Wynn Las Vegas. The first floor features more than 3,000 classic and state-of-the-art slot machines, 143 table games and a stunning casino bar centrally located at the heart of the floor beneath a grand staircase. An 88-table Poker Room on the second floor is flanked by secluded terraces overlooking the gaming floor, offering high-end poker, VIP and private-gaming experiences.
Guestrooms and Suites
At first arrival in the garden lobby, guests will discover an unparalleled approach to comfort and luxurious design – an experience that continues upon entering the resort’s 671 lavishly appointed guest rooms and suites. At 650 square feet, Encore Boston Harbor’s Premier King and Double guest rooms are the largest hotel accommodations in New England. Signature Suites increase to 1,350 square feet; Two-Bedroom Residences are 3,350 square feet; and two limited-availability villas total 5,800 square feet, respectively.
Designed in elegant neutral tones with floor-to-ceiling windows, each room highlights exclusive Wynn Dream Beds, dressed in sumptuous 507-thread-count linens. Tech-friendly conveniences include flat-screen 4K ultra-high-definition televisions, high-speed Wi-Fi, bedside mobile charging devices, and a wireless iPad for one-touch access to room controls, resort information and guest services. A voice-activation system controls curtains, lighting, heating and air-conditioning, and privacy settings.
Dining and Lounge Venues
A diverse selection of 15 restaurants, bars and lounges can be found throughout the resort, ranging from fine dining to casual fare. Successful concepts from Wynn and Encore Las Vegas will open at Encore Boston Harbor, including the acclaimed Sinatra restaurant, world-famous Wynn Buffet and Rare Steakhouse – an upscale steakhouse experience inspired by the legendary SW Steakhouse at Wynn Las Vegas.
Encore Boston Harbor will also place a heavy emphasis on locally inspired venues, embracing the diverse array of produce and ingredients from New England and the Atlantic waters. Wines of the world, hard-to-find spirits and imported beers are integrated on menus, alongside local craft brewers and distillers.
Meetings and Events
For meetings and events of all sizes and occasions, Encore Boston Harbor features more than 50,000 square feet of state-of-the-art conference space on the lobby level and 21,000 square feet of seasonal outdoor space overlooking the Boston Harbor and skyline. Event space includes ten break-out rooms, a promenade and a 37,000-square-foot grand ballroom – the largest ballroom space in Boston outside of the Boston Convention and Exhibition.
Spa and Salon
The 17-treatment room Spa at Encore Boston Harbor, carefully balancing mind, body and spirit, features a grand corridor adorned with floor lanterns, Venetian chandeliers and hand-painted silk walls. The men’s and women’s lockers rooms are richly finished spaces, where the lockers are covered in cream-colored crocodile leather, the perfect way to ease into the luxury to come. The spa will offer treatments like the Good Luck Ritual, a customized massage, foot treatment, hand therapy and botanical scalp treatment based on the five Chinese elements. A glamorous salon and barber lie adjacent to The Spa, offering luxurious hair and nail treatments, in addition to cuts and colors.
The luxury retail esplanade at Encore Boston Harbor houses Wynn Collection, Wynn Beauty and Wynn Men’s. Unique fashion collections will include top designers, and Wynn Beauty will feature Tom Ford Beauty as the premier cosmetics and fragrance line, including a bespoke fragrance bar. The Wynn Drugstore will house various sundries and giftables.
Through a robust water transportation system, custom-built water shuttles will transport guests year-round from Boston directly to the resort. The low-profile European-style boats feature plush seating, gloss-varnished teak wood and a below-deck salon seating area with large hull windows and overhead skylights. Additionally, luxury park-and-ride services will be available from select locations throughout Massachusetts and New Hampshire, and complimentary shuttle services will be offered from nearby train stations directly to Encore Boston Harbor.
