Best Fort Lauderdale Hotels and Resorts for a Truly Local Stay

February 24, 2021

Each unit at this all-suite oceanfront resort features a furnished balcony (or terrace) and galley kitchen, making it a great choice for multigenerational travel and longer stays. The resort also impresses with its strong support for small local businesses. Isola, a natural vegan skincare line made in Miami, is used in the spa; baked goods from Zak the Baker and cold-press good stuff from Juicera headline the breakfast menu. The flagship restaurant is run by uber-talented executive chef Taek Lee (aka Chef Taka), who, after decades in the business, opened his namesake Takato in October 2020. In executing his dream project of a vibe-heavy, Japanese Korean fusion restaurant, Taka poached top colleagues and close friends from other top city Asian restaurants (Zuma, Makoto, and Kura to name a few) and found a winning recipe for success.
