Conrad Fort Lauderdale Beach, the latest addition to the Conrad Hotels & Resorts growing hotel portfolio, has announced that it will open its doors this September. As the second Conrad property to open in Florida, Conrad Fort Lauderdale Beach is enhancing its Gold Coast presence with the opening of the 290-suite oceanfront resort along Fort Lauderdale’s exclusive North Beach.
The Conrad Fort Lauderdale Beach oasis will offer four dining and bar experiences, a full-service spa — featuring a couples massage room and separate men’s and women’s steam rooms — a fitness center with state-of-the-art equipment, abundant event space and an awe-inspiring 20,000-sf ocean-facing pool deck.
“As Fort Lauderdale Beach heats up, we recognize that this city is evolving with a new focus on opulence, style and sophistication. The resort is at the helm of this movement and our guarantee to locals and travelers is that we will bring an unparalleled ambiance for guests to stay inspired,” said Chintan Dadhich, general manager, Conrad Fort Lauderdale Beach. “By honoring and embracing the community, our vision is to provide intuitive service and tailored luxury by collaborating with locals to create programs and offerings that pay tribute to South Florida’s yacht and beach culture.”
Destination Meets Design
As a one-of-a-kind resort that mirrors the transcendent nature of Fort Lauderdale, known as the yachting capital of the world, the waterfront haven pays homage to the city’s celebrated waterways. Designed by the late renowned architect, Michael Graves, who’s known for iconic postmodern architecture, Conrad Fort Lauderdale Beach was inspired by the golden area of high-end cruise lines. The nautical décor reflected in the coastal suites complements the balconies that overlook the Atlantic Ocean or Intracoastal Waterway, galley kitchens, 50-inch HDTVs and more.
“While Conrad boasts a portfolio of 32 luxury hotels and resorts worldwide, Conrad Fort Lauderdale Beach will be the first beachfront resort and residence for the brand in the region,” said John T.A. Vanderslice, global head, Conrad Hotels & Resorts. “As one of the world’s fastest growing and most innovative luxury brands, Conrad hotels create unique experiences for our guests in the most sought-after destinations, and we look forward to bringing this smart luxury retreat to South Florida.”
Other amenities and services at the first-class resort include signature Conrad 1/3/5 destination itineraries that immerse visitors into the local culture – accessible on www.stayinspired.com — plus the 4,000-sf Conrad Spa, art, library, around-the-clock concierge service, the heated freshwater pool, whirlpools, a fire pit, cabanas; and artisanal libations and cuisine.
Food & Beverage
Conrad Fort Lauderdale Beach will house four food and beverage outlets. The buzzing dining scene will feature land and sea cuisine, alongside craft cocktails and freshly made gourmet items. Terra Mare, the signature restaurant located on the corner of Terramar Street, will provide casually sophisticated shared plate dining comprised of fresh, locally sourced items paired with an unmatched epicurean experience. Terra Mare will go beyond tapas by encouraging full plate sharing, rather than individual bites, and highlight select tableside preparation continuing to drive conversation among diners. Cornucopia will serve as the resort’s gourmet marketplace, where guests can personalize their dining experience, choosing from various artisanal cuisine such as flat breads, pastries and organic juices. The other two dining options on property, include the lobby bar and pool bar.
Meetings & Events
With 10,000 sf of flexible meeting space and 10,000 sf of oceanfront outdoor space, Conrad Fort Lauderdale Beach can accommodate up to 500 attendees. Highlights include the 4,524-sf Ocean Ballroom, outdoor Ocean Terrace, 10 meeting rooms and event spaces, a private conference facility entrance, state-of-the-art technology and a dedicated meeting concierge.
