The Sonesta Project in Key Biscayne Owned by Fortune International

The Sonesta Beach Resort has been a popular South Florida vacation destination since the late 1960s but closed its doors in the summer of 2006 to undergo a complete transformation. As one of the finest hotels near the Miami coast, the Sonesta will reopen in 2011 and may soon become one of the most desirable luxurious condo properties in Key Biscayne. The Sonesta project will be opening up a set of coveted oceanfront properties along the South Florida coast, an ultra-luxurious resort spanning 10.5 acres of the Key Biscayne beachfront. Supported by millions of dollars in funding and rebranded to attract luxury travelers and residents in search of the finer life, the resort will be transformed into a high-caliber, world-class destination.

The Sonesta International Hotels Corporation joined forces with Fortune International, the Miami-based real estate and brokerage firm in early 2005 in hopes of building a five-star condominium resort that captures the Sonesta International brand. Sonesta International currently owns high-profile properties in New Orleans, Boston, Florida, Brazil, Costa Rica, Mexico, Egypt, Peru and St. Maarten. The Key Biscayne Sonesta redevelopment is valued at $60 million and will offer many of the deluxe amenities and services found in its hotels and resorts around the world (Source: Marketwire).

According to The Kleer Team, the realty company managing sales of condos in the Sonesta Beach Resort, future residents can choose from 165 units over 12 floors of the property, each one ranging from 2,500 to 8,500 square feet in size. The condos will be equipped with state-of-the-art appliances, designer bathrooms, modern kitchen amenities and other deluxe features akin to the five-star resorts and hotels in South Florida. Residents can also enjoy easy access to a full-service spa and fitness center, oceanfront pools and on-site entertainment. The shared community spaces within the resort accommodate for groups and meeting events; business amenities of the resort boast 24,000 square feet of outdoor space, a large convention center and banquet facilities for hosting regional or national events. Just like Clavon condo this Sonesta project is arguably one of the best resorts in South Florida. From quality amenities, to great and unique design to systematic management to accessibility to transportation and everything, you can fairly say that it is worth your investment.

Key Biscayne continues to be a tropical paradise, the ultimate escape when vacationing in South Florida. It has become a coveted spot for taking in beautiful sunsets, witnessing breathtaking views of the ocean and enjoying the tight-knit community lifestyle. Residents of Key Biscayne are already treated to dozens of events, recreational activities and deluxe condos, apartments and homes near the white sandy beaches. The opening of the Sonesta Beach Resort will only enhance and revitalize the island’s luxury residential home-buying and rental options.
