Four Seasons scheme in Fort Lauderdale eyes March 2022 opening
Four Seasons Hotel and Residences Fort Lauderdale, showcasing the work of Kobi Karp, Tara Bernerd, Martin Brudnizki and Fernando Wong, is now accepting reservations from March onwards.
Florida is eagerly awaiting the arrival of this design-led beachfront property.
A yacht club lifestyle
Designed as a modern interpretation of the classic yacht club lifestyle, Four Seasons Hotel and Residences Fort Lauderdale has started accepting reservations from March 2022 onwards, meaning it’ll soon begin hosting guests in one of the world’s top yachting destinations.
General manager Mazen Saleh said: “Each of south Florida’s coastal communities has its own unique charm. From beach to city, Fort Lauderdale has a youthful and vibrant spirit, and we are channelling that energy, along with yacht club-style traditions, into our team and all the experiences we are creating for our guests.”
Antoine Chahwan, Four Seasons president of hotel operations, Americas East, added: “As worldwide travel gradually resumes, Four Seasons is continuing to expand its portfolio with an aim to offer the very best luxury hospitality experiences that welcome guests from near and far with renewed excitement and our unwavering commitment to the highest standards. In Fort Lauderdale, in concert with our esteemed owner-partner Nadim Ashi of Fort Hospitality, we are poised to usher in a new era in one of America’s most beloved seaside communities.”
Fort Hospitality is developing this beachfront project, with Miami-based architect Kobi Karp behind the building’s curved silhouette, reflecting the lines of a luxury yacht. Tara Bernerd & Partners is working on the interiors, taking inspiration from Fort Lauderdale’s yachting heritage and marrying mid-century modernist design with aspects of the Riviera lifestyle.
Meanwhile, Martin Brudnizki Design Studio is responsible for bringing to life the hotel’s expansive Ocean Terrace with pool experience and oceanfront restaurant Evelyn’s Table. And Fernando Wong Outdoor Living Design, which is headquartered in Miami Beach, is designing the outdoor space, complete with sculptural green gardens.
A luxury lifestyle retreat
The property encompasses 189 accommodations spanning suites and hotel residences. This will be complemented by a third-floor pool terrace, spa and wellness space, Evelyn’s Table, and lobby café and champagne bar Honey Fitz, taking its name from the presidential yacht made famous by John F Kennedy. An additional restaurant concept will debut in autumn 2022.
Moreover, the upper storeys of the 22-storey tower will feature 42 Four Seasons Private Residences.
The property’s spa, inspired by the movement of water, will offer treatments such as a signature ebb and flow massage and amenities including salt-wall saunas, aroma steam rooms and ice fountains. And both corporate and celebratory events will be hosted in dedicated event space, carefully designed to help create the rarefied atmosphere of a private yacht club.
The design takes cues from the traditional, scholarly atmosphere of the nearby universities and combines this aesthetic with industrial details and eclectic furniture to create a playful environment for students, business travelers, and families alike. Situated on...
