Four Seasons Hotel and Residences Fort Lauderdale has just arrived on the Atlantic coast of South Florida.
The Four Seasons contemporary lines are designed by architect Kobi Karp and are inspired by the city’s yachting heritage, winding waterways, and lively streets.
“Like a picture-perfect postcard, the newest Four Seasons in our growing global portfolio will create an unmatched luxury lifestyle experience – from design to service, and everything in between. We are setting the stage to experience one of America’s most beloved seaside communities in an entirely new way,” said Christian Clerc, Four Seasons President – Hotels and Resorts in a statement. “Working closely with Nadim Ashi of Fort Hospitality, our visionary owner partner of three additional Four Seasons hotels and residences, we are continuing to raise the bar for luxury hospitality along the South Florida coast.”
“The opportunity to soak up the sun poolside, spend a day at the beach or head out onto the water is the reason so many are drawn to South Florida,” says General Manager Mazen Saleh. “We’re matching the energy and spirit you feel here in Fort Lauderdale with the sophisticated touch and legendary service of Four Seasons.”
The Ocean Sun Deck is home to two horizon-edge pools and the Hotel’s signature dining experience, Evelyn’s Fort Lauderdale, all fashioned by Martin Brudnizki Design Studio. There’s a serene pool, fringed by lounge chairs and daybeds with views across the Atlantic Ocean. Outdoor spaces are filled with tropical palms and greenery by Fernando Wong Outdoor Living Design.
Four Seasons guests can also hit the beach with a dedicated area. Before heading out, guests can select beach fare favourites from Honey Fitz or stop by the toys station.
An homage to “the lady of Bonnet House,” Evelyn Fortune Lilly Bartlett – one of Fort Lauderdale’s most notable luminaries – Evelyn’s Fort Lauderdale is where eastern Mediterranean meets coastal cuisine in an indoor-outdoor atmosphere that is both sophisticated and fun. Here, Restaurant Chef Brandon Salomon, a Long Island native most recently from the kitchen at Florie’s by Mauro Colagreco, presents flavour-rich small and large plates.
Honey Fitz – the name bestowed to the presidential yacht by John F. Kennedy – continues seamlessly from the lobby as a space for gourmet coffee creations and handcrafted pastries by Pastry Chef Christina Kaelberer.
Hotel guests can also enjoy drinks and fare poolside, and in-room dining. An additional restaurant concept overlooking Fort Lauderdale Beach Boulevard is anticipated to debut in fall 2022.
The 24-hour, fully-equipped fitness centre offers ocean views, while outside, sunrise yoga classes and complimentary bicycles are available to explore the community.
Four Seasons Hotel and Residences Fort Lauderdale consists of 189 guest rooms and suites. With marine-inspired details throughout, from recessed ceilings and wraparound shelving to brass lamps and polished wood finishes, there’s a mid-century aesthetic that pairs classic pieces with bespoke designs by Tara Bernerd & Partners just for this Hotel.
The Hotel’s premier accommodation is the Birch Oceanfront Terrace Suite, named for local legend Hugh Taylor Birch, who gifted miles of Fort Lauderdale beachfront for the enjoyment of all. The Birch Oceanfront Terrace Suite has more than 1,600 square feet (150 square metres) of space indoors, plus a nearly 2,000 square foot (180 square metre) fully furnished terrace with direct ocean views.
In addition to the all-new Four Seasons Hotel and Residences Fort Lauderdale, the Fort Hospitality portfolio of Four Seasons in South Florida includes Four Seasons Hotel and Residences at The Surf Club, Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach, and Four Seasons Hotel Miami.
Additional properties in the state of Florida include Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort, and the company recently announced plans to transform the legendary Naples Beach Hotel and Golf Club on Florida’s Gulf Coast into a Four Seasons experience.
