“Nibbling on sponge cake, watching the sun bake, all of those tourists covered with oil, strumming my six string, on my front porch swing, smell those shrimp, they’re beginning to boil. Wasted away again in Margaritaville….” That sense of relaxation and total escape depicted in Jimmy Buffett’s hit song, “Margaritaville,” is the vibe behind the new Margaritaville Beach Resort in Hollywood Beach, Florida opening in the summer of 2015.
“With the essence of the Margaritaville brand and the inspiration of Jimmy Buffett’s lyrics and lifestyle, our offerings go well beyond the expected,” says Cate Farmer, general manager for Margaritaville. “The tropical vibe and feeling of escapism will be evident immediately upon arrival. From the moment you step into the property and are welcomed by our staff, you have the ability to customize your escape and enjoy the beauty and engagement of our tropical paradise.”
“This Hotel Room”
Guestrooms will be designed in what Farmer refers to as “coastal-luxe,” inspired by the tropical destination while providing a comfortable, styled, and casual feel. “It’s barefoot chic,” she points out. All rooms and suites will feature balconies that overlook the Atlantic Ocean or the Intracoastal Waterway and will bring in the colors of the sea, sand, and sky with sleek teak-finished furnishings, subtle maritime accents, and white bedding. “We also will be including some really impressive, innovative technologies and amenities into our rooms, further setting the resort apart,” adds Farmer.
The pool area will feature watersports and activities, including dueling FlowRiders—a stimulated surfing experience, cabanas, and poolside food trucks. And for those looking for a bit more of a relaxful escape, the 11th floor will offer License to Chill—an adults-only area—plus additional sneak-away spots where one can swing in a hammock.
“We believe Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort truly is the perfect destination for travelers seeking both adventure and relaxation,” says Farmer. “There are so many wonderful things about Hollywood Beach and Greater Fort Lauderdale. It is important that we incorporate authentic local touches and elements that really do reflect the destination and create a strong sense of place for travelers.”
