South Florida’s cool waters and glimmering beaches have lured visitors to its sunny shores for decades. In the early 20th century, there was no better place to see and be seen than The Surf Club. Opened in 1930, the private beach club was frequented by celebrities and important figures from around the world, all of them drawn to its glamorous parties, luxurious accommodations and exclusivity.

A haunt of icons such as Frank Sinatra, Elizabeth Taylor and Tony Bennett, the club even hosted Winston Churchill—who enjoyed painting seascapes and watercolours in his cabana—and other noted political figures on many occasions.

In 2016, this bastion of laid-back luxury will be making its much-anticipated return.


The Surf Club Four Seasons Private Residences

The Surf Club boasts 965 feet (300 metres) of Atlantic oceanfront on a 9-acre (3.6-hectare) site that will include the new Four Seasons Hotel at The Surf Club, two residential towers housing Four Seasons Private Residences, two restaurants, four swimming pools, a state-of-the-art spa and fitness centre, more than 40 beach cabanas, and an expansive park and ocean-side gardens.

In order to maintain the Club’s original charm, the historic Mediterranean-style design from the 1930s will also be incorporated into the new structure. Pritzker Prize–winning architect Richard Meier has been tapped to design the exclusive homes and penthouse residences, which will feature expansive floor plans, ranging from 1,400 to almost 8,000 square feet (130 to 750 square metres), that seamlessly combine the natural beauty of the oceanfront landscape with a modern, open feel.

Managed by Four Seasons, The Surf Club will soon be a glamorous retreat once again for those looking for a bit of peace and luxury.

“Having Four Seasons as a part of The Surf Club development returns the level of service to what it was in its heyday,” says Meier, “and makes it the luxurious place that it was from the very beginning.”
