The new multi-million dollar VIP penthouses at the Ocean Manor Resort in Ft. Lauderdale have been dubbed Heaven on Eleven, and the moment you ascend to the top floor, the reasons become obvious. Each luxury penthouse offers spectacular views from the hurricane resistant floor-to-ceiling windows, which showcase panoramic scenes of the resort’s private beach and the dazzling city skyline. Individually decorated, each penthouse exudes its own sophisticated style with contemporary dècor, spa-inspired baths, full state-of the art kitchens, expansive patios and a list of amenities. The penthouses offer VIPs the perfect retreat and also serves as the premiere location for weddings, corporate events and business functions.
The Ocean Manor Resort is celebrating its 50th Anniversary during 2008, and it certainly has golden past. The first resort along the famed Galt Ocean Mile, the OM became a celebrity magnet during the 1960’s and 70’s attracting the publicity shy Johnny Carson as a regular, along with Robert Conrad and Erik Clapton. Current owner, Frank Talerico, desired to restore the historic resort’s former glory and has invested in a multi-million dollar makeover. The new look and relaxed atmosphere have already caught the attention of the A-list including pro-athletes and MTVstars.
The Paradise Penthouse boasts 4,000 square feet of luxury and a 360 foot linear terrace. The Sunrise Penthouse offers 3,000 square feet with a grand 3,600 sq ft deck overlooking the ocean. The Sunset Penthouse is 2,500 square feet with a 200 sq ft linear balcony. And the Havana Penthouse is 2,400 sq feet and shares the 3,600 ocean deck.
Located on the famed Galt Ocean Mile, the Ocean Manor offers a 200 foot private beach, a rare amenity today. Overlooking the beach and along the private pool, is the resort’s signature hot spot, the Bamboo Beach Tiki Bar and Cafè. The unique tiki bar has become party central for tourists, locals, pro-athletes, and VIP’s alike, who unwind under the expansive thatched roof while eating, drinking, watching sporting events and enjoying live music.
