Let’s face it: one of the best parts of getting away is posting pictures for all of your friends to get jealous of your escape. Whether you’re heading to Borgata for a weeknight getaway or for a weekend of partying, we have plenty of ripe locations for you to whip out your cell phone and take a selfie that will make your Instagram followers wish they were along for the ride. Check out our list of five great spots on our property where your selfie game will be spot-on…no filters required!
The Lap Pool at Immersion Spa: It’s 32 floors above sea level, and there’s 360 degrees of floor-to-ceiling water views. Throw in a 80 foot indoor infinity-edge lap pool, a co-ed whirlpool with sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean, and absolutely perfect lighting and this is a selfie taker’s dream come true.
The Bar at Bobby Flay Steak: Chef Flay’s signature steakhouse provides more than just a great meal. The sexy lounge, which serves up classic cocktails like whiskey sours and dirty martinis, features Designer David Rockwell’s dramatic wood ceiling panels and rich, dark velvet settees. Your selfie will look (and feel) like a million bucks.
In Front of Our Chihuly: If you’ve been to Borgata, you’ve no doubt noticed our numerous Chihuly installations throughout the resort. Take a dramatic selfie in front of the two towering red and orange glass sculptures in our main hotel lobby, or strike a pose in our Chihuly garden, located near our outdoor pool and Bobby Flay Steak.
Lounging at the Water Club Indoor Pool: Your friends will think you jumped on a plane and escaped to a lush tropical island. Only you’ll know the truth: Your iPhone captured some of our Water Club‘s green foliage surrounding our heated lap pool, infinity-edge dipping pool, and two jacuzzis. We’ll protect your secret!
From Your Big Hotel Bed: Whether you’re relaxing in a Borgata Classic Room or taking in the views from a Water Club Club Room, Borgata’s signature beds, complete with our big, comfy comforters and super soft sheets, are the envy of anyone needing a getaway. Put on your best smize and take a pic! Instant envy.
