Four Seasons to open in Florida
Surfside, Florida – 14 October 2016
Situated on 900 feet of pristine white sand beach, Four Seasons Hotel at The Surf Club, Surfside, Florida is the sophisticated epicentre of this exclusive enclave in the North Beach area of Miami. With Collins Avenue outside the front door, prestigious Bal Harbour shopping nearby and the nightlife of South Beach and Miami just a short drive away, Four Seasons offers a serene and luxurious getaway in a modern architectural marvel set amid nine acres of lush tropical gardens and gentle surf shaded by majestic palms.
“The Surf Club is rich with fascinating stories, and now, we are re-imagining Miami’s nostalgic past with the beach lifestyle for today’s sophisticated traveller,” says General Manager Reed Kandalaft. “Four Seasons Hotel at The Surf Club promises memorable holidays, preserving and respecting the legacy of the club while adding new elements and our legendary Four Seasons service that will make the experience of staying here absolutely unparalleled.”
Endless days in the sun fading into evenings under the stars: this was the privileged lifestyle enjoyed by a select group at this exclusive private club in years past. Early in 2017, the glamour returns as the eternal allure of the shoreline is paired with the brilliance of architect Richard Meier and interior designer Joseph Dirand, in the restored Surf Club.
Once host to poolside fashion shows, debutante galas, black-tie boxing nights and some of the 20th century’s most talked-about parties, the modern Four Seasons Hotel at The Surf Club will welcome couples and families for carefree seaside holidays in a place once favoured by celebrities, industry titans and royalty from Frank Sinatra to Winston Churchill.
With 77 guest rooms, including five unique accommodations that capture the essence of cabana culture, amenities include three pools, a pristine beach, cabanas, a holistic spa and wellness centre, a kids’ club paradise and fabulous oceanfront dining in the historic heart of the Hotel in Surfside, Florida. Wrapped in the thoughtful and attentive service for which Four Seasons is renowned the world over, the glories of the past are melded with the possibilities of the future to bring the next chapter of The Surf Club to life.
