Canadian sunseekers and pre and post-cruise travellers with a penchant for luxury heading to Florida might like to know that the Four Seasons Hotel and Residences Fort Lauderdale is now accepting reservations ahead of its early 2022 opening.
Described as a "modern reflection of the classic yacht club lifestyle," the all-new hotel has a prime beachfront address in the heart of the famous city of sunshine.
"Each of South Florida's coastal communities has its own unique charm. From beach to city, Fort Lauderdale has a youthful and vibrant spirit, and we are channelling that energy, along with yacht club-style traditions, into our team and all the experiences we are creating for our guests," said General Manager Mazen Saleh.
Among the hotels features are 189 accommodations including suites and hotel residences, a third floor pool terrace overlooking the ocean, spa and wellness offerings, Kids For All Seasons, 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.
"As worldwide travel gradually resumes, Four Seasons is continuing to expand its portfolio with an aim to offer the very best luxury hospitality experiences that welcome guests from near and far with renewed excitement and our unwavering commitment to the highest standards," said Antoine Chahwan, Four Seasons President, hotel operations - Americas East.

Sun, pools & beach
Long days in the sunshine may be best enjoyed on the third level Ocean Terrace, featuring panoramic Atlantic Ocean views from two horizon-edge pools – one serene and one more playful.
rom morning aquafit to weekend Sunset Hour gatherings, there's activity all day long while attentive Four Seasons service brings cocktails and poolside fare.
The beach has a dedicated area for Four Seasons guests. Before heading out, guests can create their own picnic from Honey Fitz, stop by the beach toys station, and let the Beach Concierge plan the perfect day, including local water sports.
Inspired by the infinite waterways that weave through Fort Lauderdale, the spa journey at Four Seasons reflects the movement of water, from transformative facials to the signature ebb and flow massage.
Featuring products by local and global experts, guests can sample exclusive brands in the experiential boutique before relaxing in soothing lounges complete with salt-wall saunas, aroma steam rooms and ice fountains.
Restaurant & bar
At Evelyn's Table, coastal cuisine meets eastern Mediterranean flavours in a space that blends seamlessly with the glistening ocean waters it looks out upon.
Named for Evelyn Fortune Lilly Bartlett - a Fort Lauderdale luminary most notable for the beauty she bestowed upon the city - the atmosphere is both sophisticated and fun.
An inviting all-day lounge, Honey Fitz takes its name from the Presidential yacht made famous by John F. Kennedy. Entering from the grand space that welcomes guests to the Hotel, awake to gourmet coffee creations and pastries by day and enjoy wine and champagne by night.
An additional restaurant concept overlooking Fort Lauderdale Beach Boulevard will debut in fall 2022.

The hotel also brings expertise, exceptional cuisine, and personality to weddings, milestone celebrations and gala events.
Meeting planners can also consider the benefits of sun-lit spaces offering inspiring ocean views along with an outdoor beachfront terrace, and plenty of ways for attendees to spend down time, just moments away from the city's best shops, restaurants, marinas and entertainment.
