Meyer Jabara Hotels Selected to Manage Cambria Fort Lauderdale

USA, Danbury, Connecticut. January 30, 2019

Meyer Jabara Hotels (MJH) has been selected to manage a new construction Cambria hotel in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., scheduled to open in 2020. Owned by Jai and Jessica Motwani, president and CEO of real-estate development group Hotel Motel Inc., the 97-room asset will be located at 2231 N. Ocean Blvd., across the street from the Auberge Beach Residences & Spa, considered to be Fort Lauderdale's most extraordinary beachfront property. The hotel will have views of the ocean and intercostal. Beachfront access is only feet away. Groundbreaking will begin once three existing motels are demolished.

“As a vacation destination that attracts more than 13 million people on average every year, we are eager to open this new Fort Lauderdale asset,” said Justin Jabara, VP of Development and Acquisition for Meyer Jabara Hotels. “We are breaking the mold with this property. Designed as a simplistic, elegant retreat, this hotel will come to set the standard within the market. It will feature all the amenities that business and leisure guests have come to enjoy, such as an open concept lobby, unique restaurant and cocktail lounge, flexible meeting space, state-of-the-art fitness center, swimming pool and retail space. This truly is an amazing asset, and with Meyer Jabara's management in play, this hotel will emerge as a market leader.

“This management contract marks the sixth Cambria® Hotels & Suites in our portfolio, and we are excited to re-enter the Fort Lauderdale market,” he said. “Cambria is the ideal brand for the market with its industrial design, stylish rooms, business center conveniences, and highly-personalized service. We are delighted to continue our growing relationship with Choice Hotels International and look forward to seeing this stylish property come to life.”

Under the design focus of Jessica Motwani and Hospitality Furnishings & Design Inc., the Cambria Fort Lauderdale will evoke a coastal modern aesthetic. The raw, natural materials of stone and wood will be complemented with clean, soft, modern finishes that provide a therapeutic space for all guests. Sandy tans and cool greys mingle with deep cerulean bringing the relaxing beachfront into the space and enabling guests to feel the presence of the coast resulting in a relaxed and rejuvenating experience.

“The Cambria Fort Lauderdale will quickly become the place to stay for urban travelers visiting south Florida,” Jabara said. “The hotel will be minutes away from some of the area's best attractions, including world-class dining and shopping at the Galleria Shops and Las Olas Boulevard, museums, and theaters. The Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport and Port Everglades also are close by.”

Hotel Spa: Back to Nature

As the Wellness Industry continues to expand, hotel spas are also diversifying, placing a greater emphasis on overall well-being. For some spas, this means providing clients with all-inclusive packages that include fitness classes, healthy dining, and offsite leisure activities, in addition to their core services. For example, spas near ski resorts are offering packages that include lift passes, pre-ski yoga sessions, after-ski dinners and spa treatments. Other spas are offering packages that include massages, saunas, mineral baths, hot springs, and recreational hiking and snowmobile activities. These kinds of spa offerings are also part of a "Back to Nature" movement that encourages guests to get out and experience the healing qualities of nature. One such therapy is the Japanese practice known as "forest bathing" which has become popular with spas that are near wooded areas. This practice relies on the ancient power of a forest for promoting a sense of health and well-being. Other spas are incorporating precious metals and stones into their health and beauty treatments - such as silver, gold, pearls and amber. Silver ion baths relax the body and mind, reduce fatigue, and restore energy balance. Gold keeps skin radiant and can even treat various skin diseases and infections, due to its antibacterial qualities. Amber is used to calm the nervous system and to relieve stress. Other natural products and therapies that are increasingly in demand include sound therapy, cryotherapy, infra-red saunas, and even CBD oil, which is being used in massages, facials and foot scrubs, providing a new form of stress relief. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will document these trends and other new developments, and report on how some hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
