One of my favorite brands is making its way to another beach location. Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville Beach Resort already has a tropical presence on Pensacola Beach, and it will soon be among the soft sand of Hollywood Beach in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Opening in summer 2015, the destination resort and entertainment complex will be situated on the Hollywood Beach Broadwalk in the greater Fort Lauderdale area.

The resort, which is inspired by the lyrics and lifestyle of singer, songwriter, author and actor Jimmy Buffett, the Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort is designed to offer an extensive array of amenities combined with a high level of hospitality, service and attention to detail. The 349-room, 17-story resort will provide the perfect setting for guests to escape the everyday and just chill out.

From the press release …

Dining Options

Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort will offer seven diverse food and beverage venues, including Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville, LandShark Bar & Grill, License to Chill Rooftop Bar, Lone Palm Bar and 5 o’clock Somewhere Bar.

The resort will also offer JWB’s, an all-new Margaritaville-inspired upscale dining restaurant. Details and artist renderings are anticipated for release in the coming months. With a unique range of waterfront options and everything from tiki bars to upscale dining, guests will have everything they need to raise a glass and take a sip out of paradise.

St. Somewhere Spa

Travelers visiting the Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort will be able to indulge in paradise at the expansive 15,000 square-foot St. Somewhere Spa. A tropical oceanfront retreat with eleven treatment rooms, the spa will be an ideal spot for locals, resort guests and event attendees to indulge themselves. Gender-specific lounges and locker rooms will be complemented by a co-ed wet lounge featuring heated benches and two uniquely designed couples treatment rooms. Services will include hot stone, aromatherapy, deep tissue, Swedish and Shiatsu massage therapy along with on-site facials, waxing, hair styling and manicures/pedicures. Steam rooms, monsoon showers and a cascade pool will relax, rejuvenate and recharge.

Function and Event Space

Guided by the philosophy that each event is a unique adventure, the resort’s dedicated team of event professionals are focused on designing authentic meeting and entertainment experiences. The ultimate destination for meetings, Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort will give corporate, association and social group attendees a place to focus on business at hand and then a license to chill.

Eleven distinctive meeting and event spaces will include the 10,000 square-foot “Compass Rose Ballroom,” which will be divisible into four smaller segments – North, East, South and West. Seven additional breakout rooms will include The Board Room, Continental Drifter, Nautical Wheeler, Fins Left, Fins Right, Hemisphere Dancer and Coral Reef. What a fun job it must have been to name those rooms!

“I am thrilled to be onboard and excited to help bring the vision for this exciting new resort to life,” said Cate Farmer, the resort’s recently appointed general manager. “With an incredible oceanfront location in Greater Fort Lauderdale and the powerful brand platform of Margaritaville, we are confident Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort will emerge as a top destination for leisure and business travelers from around the world.”

Additional details on amenities, services and facilities will be announced in the coming months so be sure to check back often. This will include plans for the resort’s coastal-luxe guestrooms, extensive water recreation and active adventure areas, beachfront fitness center, family and children’s programming, entertainment venues and more than 7,000 square-feet of retail space.

I’m really interested to find out more about that spa and JWB’s restaurant. How about you?
