The W Fort Lauderdale’s Away spa undergoes a dramatic overhaul.


By Olivia Pettee

The W Fort Lauderdale’s Away spa invites you to escape into wellness this summer. Following the completion of the hotel’s $55 million makeover in 2018, the spa opened earlier this year and marks the first Away location to offer a full body and beauty menu. The 3,778-square-foot space is accented with splashes of neon pinks, yellows, oranges and green, as well as large-scale images of a mouth covered with boldly colored lipstick, visual reminders that life should be vibrant and full of fun. Away features a manicure bar and pedicure station, a massage booth, detox beauty treatments and quick-fix options for those on the go. This location is also the first Away spa to boast a glam station that gives guests everything from makeup touch-ups to full makeovers. Other highlights include a couple’s treatment room and products from Comfort Zone, an Italian wellness brand. Are you ready to get away?
