“There is so much going on and coming onboard over the next year or so that agents need to be aware of,” said Sophie Holloway, UK PR Account Executive for the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau.

Already proving popular with UK visitors is the new $147-million, 349-room Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort, now open on the Broadwalk and featuring eight restaurants/bars, three pools and a St. Somewhere Spa.

Beachwalk Resort also recently opened along the Intracoastal Waterway in Hallandale Beach, with 216 resort units, an infinity pool and restaurant. Its beachfront sister property HYDE Resort opens in 2017 with 367 units, a pool, spa and restaurant.

Meanwhile, The Pelican Grand Beach Resort has completed a six-million-dollarexpansion, which includes a new PURE indoor/outdoor spa overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, while the Conrad Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort is expected to open this summer with 290 large studios and suites.

A new 23-story Four Seasons will open in 2018 with 150 hotel rooms and 95 residences, two restaurants, a spa, fitness centre and children’s recreation room.

Element by Westin Hotel (114 rooms) will offer retail options, a restaurant, rooftop bar, sky lobby and a seventh-floor infinity pool when it opens in the spring 2017.
