Fort Lauderdale Ritz-Carlton unveils beachfront spa overlooking Atlantic Ocean

by Jane Kitchen | 12 Oct 2015

The Ritz-Carlton Fort Lauderdale has unveiled a new spa perched seven floors above the Atlantic Ocean. Part of a US$8m (€7m, £5.2m) renovation, the spa now features an expanded and updated look, courtesy of New York-based Dash Design.

The firm was charged with bringing to life under-utilised space in the former spa, allowing for more guest services. The upgrade spa compliments the aesthetics of the oceanfront with tones of aqua and greens layered into the design.

“The experience working with ownership and The Ritz-Carlton brand to elevate and revitalise the spa was a very positive and collaborative one,” said Paula Azevedo, principal of Dash Design.

The 8,500sq ft (790sq m) Spa at The Ritz-Carlton, Fort Lauderdale now offers 11 treatment rooms, including a private couple’s treatment suite, as well as whirlpools on the seventh floor tropical pool deck and a full-service hair, manicure and pedicure salon.

All new marble and mosaic tile wet areas include a steamroom, wet room and sauna. The spa also boasts a fitness centre with Technogym cardiovascular and strength equipment and an intracoastal water view.

The new spa menu with ESPA products aims to speak to the destination of Fort Lauderdale, with nods to the ocean, the state’s beloved oranges, and native tribes that inhabit the area.
