There is a clear trend of amenities for tranquility, meditation, and overall wellness in the luxe real estate of South Florida. Resort lifestyle is no longer just about making things look good, instead developers now create spaces and services for making top-tier buyers feel good physically and mentally. It is true that the richest in the world want incredible looking properties with mesmerizing architecture, but wellness is becoming increasingly important in luxury buildings around the world, and of course in Miami Beach.
The developers of high-end homes must be on par with the amenity requests of high net worth buyers. A recent report by ONE Sotheby’s International Realty states that properties with amenities focused on wellness sell on average between 10% and 25% more.
So, what wellness amenities are the top trend in South Florida? These are some of the most desired in the new projects:
Meditation and Mindfulness Rooms:
It’s a trend in luxe real estate to have peaceful spaces where people feed their minds, focus on the breath, listen to soft music and sounds of birds with integrations of high technology and virtual reality that stimulate the tranquility of the meditators.
These meditative rooms are built with spectacular views towards the sea where those who enjoy them can concentrate on the waves, sunsets and sunrises to cool down their senses and to be mindful of the present moment and well-being.
The Resort Spa Wellness Pavilion in 57 Ocean is a clear example of a South Florida luxury building with spaces for indoor and outdoor meditation and relaxation, and a library to feed the tranquility of the mind while watching the Atlantic Ocean.
Body massages relax both body and mind and first-class buyers for sure know it and request it on their properties, which now offer places of relaxation where the masseuse will provide rejuvenating facials and relaxing body and face massages in aromatized spaces with calm music.
This delightful environment can be found in The Ritz-Carlton – Sunny Isles Beach with an outdoor massage area and a wellness center, treatment areas, sauna and steam rooms.
Tranquility Gardens and Spaces:
The vegetation has always brought peace to people, not in vain most of us seek from time to time to go to natural places where trees, plants and water create a relaxing environment. Plants are now found indoors in the common areas of high-end buildings creating better spaces to live for the top-tier buyers.
We now see a trend in luxury buildings to create natural foliage paradises and waterfalls in spaces such as rooftops, libraries, lobbies, meditation rooms and restaurants.
A beautiful sample of indoor nature can be admired in Eighty Seven Park, a top luxe development in The Millionaires Row, where a botanical exhibition takes place including the best collection of orchids and other objects such as Bonsai and Petit Cactuses.
Yoga and Pilates Studios:
Indoor and outdoor studios are on the rise for homeowners with taste for Yoga and Pilates who often look for properties with specially designed areas to practice their sessions with a personalized coach. The luxury buildings are being designed to provide spaces like this on the roofs, large balconies with tropical plants and high-tech private studios.
Construction firms took this into account and Yoga and Pilates areas are present in all the newest luxury buildings in South Florida, but you can see a specific example at The Oceana Residences in Bal Harbor with two Oceanfront Spas; and at Una Residences across the Biscayne Bay with state-of-the-art gym equipment and separate studios for yoga and personal training among other fitness and wellness activities.
On-site Organic Food
All the luxury amenities that satisfy tranquility, meditation and wellness are not complete without on-site organic food services. The luxe real estate found its way to cover this need: from five-star restaurants that serve food at the request of residents, to nutritionists and rooftop orchards that produce the ingredients that are latter served at the table of demanding diners.
Buildings now serve luxury and also wellness and tranquility; understanding what the buyers are looking for is essential for developers that will always plan to meet and surpass their needs and demands.
Know we only have to ask ourselves, what will be the next request and how it will be implemented in the properties, but one thing is for sure, homes will only become better to meet the new demands of South Florida’s luxe buyers. What would be yours?
