Spa of the Week: The Ritz-Carlton Fort Lauderdale

By Olivia Cuccaro

the ritz-carlton spa fort lauderdaleIf you’re a yacht lover, Florida is the place to be this week as the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show takes over. With more than 1,500 boats on display during the five-day event, there’s plenty to see and do in Fort Lauderdale, making a moment to relax hard to come by. As the only full-service beachfront spa in the city, The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Fort Lauderdale is the perfect place to unwind between yacht parties.

Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, The Ritz-Carlton Spa comprises 11 treatment rooms, including a private couple’s treatment suite and private massage areas, as well as a hair and nail salon, relaxation room, intracoastal water view fitness center, and Jacuzzis on the tropical pool deck. Rejuvenate after a day at the show with choices from a comprehensive treatment menu that features ESPA products and elements of the coastal region. Book a sea-inspired service such as the Intuitive Ocean, which smooths and nourishes skin with a combination of sea salts and marine mud, or opt for a massage in the serenity of a private oceanfront cabana.

Guests can hand-pick a pumpkin from the spa’s own patch, which a therapist will then make into a custom scrub to be used in a full-body exfoliation. The scrub is followed by a hydrating body wrap, pumpkin massage, anti-aging enzyme facial and honey and berries pedicure. A cranberry manicure is available to add, should you require even more fall-themed pampering.

The suite includes three king-size bedrooms and three full bathrooms clad in marble and mother-of-pearl, with separate bathtub, shower and dual sinks. The suite also encompasses a full kitchen, large living room, dining room table with space for six, and washer/dryer.

The Ritz-Carlton Fort Lauderdale is located at 1 North Fort Lauderdale Beach Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33304. For more information, please visit
