Come for the boat show and stay for the laidback beach-town atmosphere — Fort Lauderdale is defined by its coastal location. Whether visiting or residing in the ‘Yachting Capital of the World,’ ocean views and beachfront access are essential. W Residences Fort Lauderdale recently completed a $60m renovation embodying the luxury oceanfront community that draws elite travelers to the South Florida city.
Upholding the same standard of refinement as the hotel, the W’s 171 residences are newly refreshed and reflect the thriving yachting culture of surrounding Fort Lauderdale. Updated interiors designed by New-York based Meyer Davis evoke the nautical feel of a yacht with all the amenities of a luxury residence. Fully-furnished, two-bedroom units comprise master bathrooms with spa bathtub and separate shower, living areas and full kitchens with seating for four. The most spacious residence is the Haven floor plan, with nearly 300 sq ft of additional terrace space and affording views to the north and east. Though you’re on land, the ocean has a constant presence here: floor-to-ceiling windows and spacious balconies reveal spectacular views of the Atlantic and Intracoastal Waterway, while exclusive white-sand beach is just steps away.
The property’s new look features maritime elements such as canvas from sails, wooden accents reminiscent of boat decks, sailing knots, naval camouflage and military-inspired strapping. As part of the redesign, guests can enjoy more waterfront access from Living Room, the property’s indoor-outdoor lobby and bar space. Outdoor seating offers unobstructed views of Fort Lauderdale Beach, and the indoor lounge provides a place to have a cocktails when a break from the beaming Florida sun is needed.
Set on the beach, the W Residences encompass the Wet East heated swimming pool area overlooking the Atlantic, secluded Wet West saltwater pool complex and private cabanas for enjoying a poolside drink in peace. The property also includes a fitness center, Bliss Spa and Steak 954 Restaurant, with special offerings for residence owners as well as valet and the signature Whatever/Whenever concierge service.
W Residences Fort Lauderdale are located at 3101 Bayshore Drive, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33304. For more information, please visit wfortlauderdaleresidences.com.
