Bahia Mar Fort Lauderdale Beach resort undergoes $7 million makeover ahead of boat show

The iconic Bahia Mar Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort is undergoing a $7 million makeover this summer that’s slated to be completed in time for it to host the city’s annual boat show this year.

The redesign of the DoubleTree by Hilton-branded hotel at 801 Seabreeze Blvd., will sport a nautical theme inspired by the area’s boating, marina and beach lifestyle, the project’s interior designer said.

“It will have a sort of casual elegance it does not have today,” said Sherif Ayad, president of ID Design International of Fort Lauderdale.

In all, 181 rooms in Bahia Mar’s main tower will be upgraded with a blue and white color scheme, new carpeting and headboards, peak wood dressers and desks, new appliances and custom light fixtures with USB outlets. King-sized beds will be added to the oceanfront rooms.
