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: Pursuing Distinction

The Wellness Movement continues to evolve and hotel spas continue to innovate in order to keep pace. Fueled by intense competition within the industry, hotel spas are seeking creative ways to differentiate themselves in the market. An increasing number of customers are searching for very specific, niche treatments that address their particular health concerns and, as a result, some leading spas have achieved distinction by offering only one specialized treatment. Meditation and mindfulness practices are becoming increasingly mainstream as are alternative treatments and therapies, such as Ayurvedic therapies, Reiki, energy work and salt therapy. Some spas specialize in stress management and offer lifestyle coaching sessions as part of their program.  Other spas are fully embracing new technologies as a way to differentiate themselves, such as providing wearable devices that track health and fitness biomarkers, or robots programmed with artificial intelligence to control spa environments, or virtual reality add-ons that transport guests to relaxing places around the world. Some spas have chosen to specialize in medical procedures such as liposuction, laser skin therapy, phototherapy facials, Botox and facial fillers, acupuncture and permanent hair removal, in addition to cosmetic body shaping procedures and  teeth whitening treatments. Similarly, other spas are offering comprehensive health check-ups and counseling services for those who are interested in disease prevention treatments. Finally, as hotel spas continue to become more diverse, accessible and specialized, there is a growing demand for health professionals with a specific area of expertise. There is a proliferation of top class, quality wellness practitioners who make a name for themselves by offering their services around the globe, including athletes, chefs, doctors, physical trainers and weight loss specialists. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these trends and developments and examine how some hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
