The Water Club at the Borgata, Atlantic City NJ

Happy Birthday to you!

We recently had a fabulous getaway to The Water Club at the Borgata in Atlantic City to celebrate my sister and her husband’s 50th Birthdays! They live in Georgia so we were so happy to get to spend some time with them!

Time to relax...

Gardner's Basin

Dramatic views!

Our rooms were grand and we had corner rooms with breath-taking views of the inlet and Gardner's Basin.

Time to shop!

We had a divine dinner at the new Italian Restaurant Fornelletto in the wine cellar at the Borgata where Umbra used to be. The food was incredible. We started with meatballs in sauce, fresh ricotta crostini and chopped salad. Entrees included veal parmigiana (above) , veal 'osso bucco' ravioli and Eggplant, tomato and mozzarella and pasta (below). Everyone raved over their meals and the great service. Then we headed off to enjoy some Gelato!

Other great restaurants include Bobby Flay Steak, Wolfgang Puck America Grille, Sea Blue, Izakaya Japanese Pub, and Old Homestead Steak House. They also have an incredible Buffet and more family friendly dining @ The Cafeteria in the lower level including ice cream, pizza and burgers.
We have had spectacular meals @ Bobby Flay, the Old Homestead and the Buffet.

The Spa is $45 extra but we didn't have enough time to explore there or get massages.
Maybe next time? Last time we were there I shot this photo of the exercise area!

great view of Harrah's from our room!
