The SPA at Auberge Beach & Residences COURTESY OF RELATED GROUP
Fort Lauderdale’s new coveted address is a two-tower condominium project by Related Group, boasting 170 units right at the edge of the Atlantic Ocean with price tags up to $9 million. Now, while you might not be able to call one of these digs your home, their state-of-the-art spa can give you a taste of the quality and luxurious design that the hallmarks the Auberge portfolio.
With more than 15,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor treatment areas, The SPA at Auberge Beach draws on its secluded, beachfront setting for the rich character of its design and therapeutic treatments, which incorporate elements of sea, salt, sand and sound. “Since Auberge has 450-feet of oceanfront and sits right on the sand, the entire property feels very serene,” Patrick Campbell, vice president of Related Group described. “The location was a huge source of inspiration for the spa which utilizes neutral colors and pops of blue marble.” Surrounded by lush gardens and views of the Atlantic Ocean, the dreamy spa takes its design cues from its natural habitat in southern Florida with streamlined, rich wood furnishings and beachy hues. And if you need further convincing, the spa was Dwyane Wade’s first stop in his retirement.

The 14 treatment rooms offer a distinctive menu of signature treatments, as well as a self-guided vitality ritual including a sound meditation lounge, salt cave, infrared sauna, steam room, cool deluge shower therapy, manicure and pedicure services, express beauty bar treatments, and a full calendar of wellness activities. Best of all, the spa has three garden cabanas for an outdoor spa experience with the ocean just steps away.

Aside from an incredible menu of massage and facial treatments, Auberge offers special treatments including an ultra therapy med spa service which uses ultrasound to administer a non-invasive facelift. Another unique offering is the Hemi-Sync headsets, which feature audio guidance technology for meditation and relaxation and can be paired with several services.

The second amenity that’s open to the public is the property’s restaurant DUNE, the first East Coast restaurant from the Auberge Resorts collection. The menu was designed by executive chef, Edgar Beas, who focused on sourcing sustainable local ingredients for a contemporary American menu, and similar to the spa, it was completely inspired by Auberge’s seaside habitat. “DUNE’s menu is centered around local and fresh ingredients for a farm-to-table concept offering meals that are elegant without being fussy,” Patrick Campbell explained. “The restaurant’s design is influenced by the history of the site as well as Fort Lauderdale’s reputation as a laid-back beach town.” Plan your spa session for the late afternoon so you can cap the day with plates like Crab Spätzle or Octopus a la Plancha while sipping a cocktail oceanfront.
The resort-caliber spa and restaurant have been masterfully conceived by The Related Group, Fortune International Group, Fairwinds Group and Auberge Resorts Collection – the internationally renowned ultra-luxury resort operator.
