Sea, sound, salt and sand inspire stunning Auberge Fort Lauderdale spa

We want to harness the sense of release, recovery and renewal that most of us equate with time spent at the seaside, and translate that attitude into a leading-edge wellness experience
– Tracy Lee

New renderings have been revealed for the upcoming 10,000sq ft (929sq m) spa at the Auberge Beach Residences & Spa Fort Lauderdale.

The Florida spa, which will open in 2018 to residents and guests alike, is designed by spa consultant Tracy Lee of TLee Spas, and inspired by the sea, sound, salt and sand, said Lee.

“This inspiration came from numerous sources,” Lee told CLAD. “The experience of one of the owners who grew up on this site and was profoundly shaped by these collective forces of nature – their constant presence at this special location, and the positive impact they exert on the emotional, spiritual and physical aspect of wellbeing. We want to harness the sense of release, recovery and renewal that most of us equate with time spent at the seaside, and translate that attitude into a leading-edge wellness experience.”

The spa will include a range of indoor and outdoor treatment areas, with rooms illuminated by natural light to instill a sense of tranquility. Four massage rooms, two skincare rooms, a specialty massage room with a Gharieni MLX Quartz Treatment Bed, a body treatment room, couples suite with soaking tub and two outdoor treatment cabanas are all planned, as well as a full-service salon and Purification Circuit.

The Purification Circuits are a blended indoor/outdoor bathhouse experience with a South Florida twist, said Lee, and include hydrotherapy showers, steam, sauna and salt inhalation room and various resting areas. The women’s area also includes an al fresco vitality pool surrounded by lush plantings.

A Sound & Sand Massage incorporates Gharieni’s MLX Quartz treatment bed and combines it with specialised audio programming and customised massage techniques to gently warm the body, release muscle tension and encourage a deep meditative state.

Magnetic Sand Therapy is designed as a general massage booster, using applications of warm and cool sand packs to relax muscles, reduce inflammation and ease pain.

While product houses have not been finalised, Lee said she is “strongly considering” HydraFacial MD, The Organic Pharmacy, Intraceuticals and True Botanicals.

Designed by architecture firm Nichols, Brosch, Wurst & Wolf Associates, the Auberge Fort Lauderdale is 171-residence beachfront condominium property being developed by The Related Group, Fortune International Group and the Fairwinds Group. It is comprised of two glazed structures that aim to strike a balance between natural forms and luxury, and features a sleek, organic facade.

Interiors by New York-based Meyer Davis Studio, and also aim to celebrate honest, natural materials.

“The site’s serenity and calm environs informed our design direction – from palette to material choices,” said Will Meyer, principal of Meyer Davis Studio.

Original works of art, including La Maternidad, a bronze sculpture by contemporary artist Fernando Botero, will be installed throughout the property.
