It was such a gloomy Sunday on this last day of Summer Break 2017 here in Fort Lauderdale. I don't know about you, but I become a bit sad the day before school starts. It means summer is coming to an end, and the relaxed, no homework vibe, late dinners, and longer days are gone until next year.
Fortunately for me and my fellow Floridians (especially South Floridians), summer is basically year-round with the exception of a few chilly days or weeks - if we're lucky! The climate and beautiful beaches combined with fabulous shopping, dining, nightlife, and amazing hotels, make it the perfect place to enjoy a #STAYcation. And now at W Fort Lauderdale, you can even enjoy a restful and relaxing poolside #DAYcation with their WET Deck Day Pass for locals.
Recently, W Fort Lauderdale, located on Fort Lauderdale Beach Boulevard, completed a massive, and seriously fabulous, $55 million dollar renovation. The luxurious hotel's makeover included renovations to the rooftop pool and bar. The new, improved WET Deck is simply stunning. Lounge chairs, cabanas, and beds surround the perfectly blue pool. The glass enclosure around the deck allows an unobstructed view of the gorgeous sandy beach and sea below while you lounge, splash in the pool, or enjoy a cocktail and bite to eat from the outdoor bar.
When the WET Deck renovation completed, W Fort Lauderdale rolled out their very affordable $25 WET Deck Day Pass for locals to enjoy all the fabulous rooftop amenities Monday - Thursday from 10am to 6pm. (Check upcoming available dates/purchase HERE.)
W Fort Lauderdale WET Deck Day Pass includes all of the following:
- Full Wet Deck Access to include: pool, hot tub, and outdoor bar with food and beverage service
- 1 Lounge Chair
- 1 Wet Deck Towel
- Complimentary Valet Parking
I went with my friend, Robyn, in late July and we thoroughly enjoyed our day. W Fort Lauderdale has the friendliest and most helpful staff from the valet attendants to the concierge and bartenders. They took great care of us and We had a perfectly relaxing day. Lounging by the pool and sipping fruity cocktails was what we both needed.
I'd definitely recommend purchasing a day pass HERE to spend the day at the W Fort Lauderdale WET Deck. Check out all of the hotel details online HERE and Instagram HERE. And certainly, remember to take a #DAYcation every now and again to relax and charge your batteries. It's important and so good for the mind, body, and soul. I'll definitely be heading back there the next time I decide to play hooky again for the day. And I can't wait to book a few days at W Fort Lauderdale for a #STAYcation! - Jill xoxo
