Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) April 4, 2010
In honor of its silver jubilee, Harbor Beach Marriott Resort & Spa unveils the finished look of a $50 million resort-wide renovation. The Fort Lauderdale luxury resort has been renewed and revitalized with a complete makeover to rooms and suites décor, The Spa at Harbor Beach fitness center expansion (nearly doubling in size) and the introductions of a 10,000-square-foot oceanfront ballroom, The Surf Club kids' clubhouse and a new dining venue overlooking the Atlantic: Sea Level Restaurant and Ocean Bar. In honor of the property's milestone celebration, the resort is offering a Silver Anniversary package including a complimentary upgrade to an oceanfront room and a $50 daily resort credit. Available through the end of the year, nightly rates start at $309.*
"With a $50 million investment, Harbor Beach Marriott Resort & Spa is consistently raising the bar to enhance the guest experience," said Jim Mauer, general manager. "We are happy to celebrate 25 years of excellence and look forward to the next 25!"
Spanning three years, the oceanfront property's multimillion-dollar redesign began with a floor-to-ceiling rooms and suites beautification featuring Marriott Revive® bedding, polished granite dressers and soft, curved furniture, making rooms as warm and comfortable as the resort's private beach. All accommodations were outfitted with 32-inch flat-screen televisions for a clean, open-space feel.
The greatly anticipated oceanfront ballroom is 10,000 square feet and can accommodate nearly 1,000 people theater-style and over 450 school room-style. With one wall made entirely of glass, every angle of the new facility offers guests and meeting attendees picture-perfect views of the Atlantic Ocean. The adjacent ocean terrace features fire pits, cabana seating and cozy alcoves amid lush tropical landscaping.
Earlier this year, Harbor Beach Marriott Resort & Spa opened Sea Level Restaurant & Ocean Bar, a 152-seat oceanfront restaurant perched 15 feet above the beach providing unobstructed views of the Atlantic Ocean. Designed to reflect a modern South Florida ambiance, Sea Level serves approachable regional cuisine and expertly handcrafted cocktails. As an addition to the resort's premiere culinary offerings, which include Chef Dean Max's award-winning 3030 Ocean, Sea Level provides unobstructed ocean views, perched 15 feet above South Florida's largest private beach.

Following an expansive redo of The Spa at Harbor Beach fitness center, the facility nearly doubled in size to 3,750 square feet and now features state-of-the-art fitness machines and a revamped spa kitchen. The Beachside Buddies program received a total overhaul with a brand new freestanding kids' clubhouse, The Surf Club, opened on March 12. The Surf Club features a custom-built Hawaiian Surf Simulator allowing one to four children at a time to "surf" the waves. For those in need of more practice, a simulated hotel associate will pop up on the video game to suggest surfing lessons. The Fort Lauderdale beach hotel's clubhouse also includes a theater room with stadium seating, a 65" plasma television over a stage and over-sized bean bag chairs, as well as a media room with four Macs, two additional televisions and two Xbox 360s. Four underwater digital cameras are available for kids' use with a kid-friendly photo formatting program for downloads. Surf Club kids can then take their individual photos and make personalized souvenirs with supervised use of heat presses; souvenirs include t-shirts, puzzles, mouse pads, mugs and more.
Opened in October 1984, the four-diamond rated Harbor Beach Marriott Resort & Spa was a refreshing addition to Fort Lauderdale's exclusive Harbor Beach residential community. Located on 16 acres of secluded, palm tree-lined grounds including South Florida's largest private beach, Harbor Beach Marriott Resort & Spa quickly became the classic Fort Lauderdale destination resort.
