Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts will open a new 189-key property in Fort Lauderdale in early 2022.
The brand has worked in concert with owner partner, Nadim Ashi of Fort Hospitality, to bring an exciting new offering to this beloved seaside community. Four Seasons Hotel and Residences Fort Lauderdale, Ashi envisioned bringing an inspiring sense of possibility to this next-generation coastal city and selected a global design team to create a beachfront address with a foundation of style.
Beginning with award-winning Miami-based architect, Kobi Karp, the building’s curved silhouette is emblematic of the sleek lines of a luxury yacht, creating a free-flowing appearance that catches the best of both the ocean and the city. The fresh white materials and clean contemporary lines were drawn from the city’s modern and youthful spirit.
Internally, internationally renowned design studio, Tara Bernerd & Partners, was selected to design the hotel’s public spaces, rooms and suites. Seeking inspiration from Fort Lauderdale’s yachting heritage, Tara Bernerd’s design marries a Riviera lifestyle with the freshness and elegance of mid-century modernist design.
Martin Brudnizki Design Studio imagined the hotel’s expansive Ocean Terrace, which includes the pool experience and oceanfront restaurant, Evelyn’s Table. Here, Martin Brudnizki sought to create a space that exudes the tradition of a yacht club and the glamour and fun of Four Seasons in Fort Lauderdale. The polished palette of blues, whites and woods combines with beautifully rounded detailing to create a nautical feeling that is sophisticated and fresh.
The outdoor spaces have been further brought to life by celebrated boutique firm, Fernando Wong Outdoor Living Design, headquartered in Miami Beach with addresses in Palm Beach and The Hamptons.
The hotel’s offering includes 189 accommodations, an expansive third floor pool terrace overlooking the ocean, spa and wellness offerings, oceanfront dining at Evelyn’s Table, and Honey Fitz, the lobby cafe and champagne bar. Just above the lobby is a dedicated level of event spaces, while the uppermost floors of the 22-storey tower are home to 42 Four Seasons Private Residences.
