Gay Resort Reopens in Fort Lauderdale After Renovation and Expandion

Published Date Author: , March 31st, 2011

Royal Palms Resort - Fort LauderdaleContemporary Euro style meets tropical splendor at the new Royal Palms, a stunning reinvention that’s poised to change the face of the city’s hotel market. The longtime gay favorite unveils its expansion to 62 rooms April 11 – courtesy of two additional buildings that underwent head-to-toe renovations. The makeover also added two heated swimming pools (one clothing-optional), a bar/grill, spa and fitness center, all just one block from Fort Lauderdale Beach.

The Royal Palms team took their design cues from the up-and coming North Beach village neighborhood and added a modern slant. Visitors will find crisp white exteriors, grey tumbled marble pavers, and contemporary lush tropical foliage with splashes of bougainvillea blooms accenting the palm-studded outdoor spaces.

Guestrooms vibrate with pops of color against a white backdrop; rain showers spill onto pebbled floors; and original artworks from photographer Dennis Dean hit a sensual note. All rooms come with 42-inch flat-screen TVs, and the RP’s signature orchid blossoms still accompany each stay–along with complimentary WiFi throughout the property, and access to iPad 2s, mobile phones, white bicycles and the ultimate guest amenity: a sleek 54-foot private luxury yacht, available for guest excursions, celebrations and commitment ceremonies.
