Bahia Mar Fort Lauderdale Beach announced it will undergo $7 million in renovations to the hotel’s guest rooms, common areas and meeting spaces.
The hotel, co-owned by Jimmy Tate, released renderings that reveal a redesign of the 296-room hotel. The main tower’s 181 rooms will feature a white and blue color scheme, with new custom carpeting, floor-to-ceilings headboards, new dressers, desks, light fixtures, draperies and appliances, according to a press release.

Its ballroom will have a second sea life-inspired chandelier designed by ID & Design International, the architect behind the renovations.
