Behind-The-Shoot: The Diplomat Beach Resort

In November, our small crew escaped to Hollywood, FL for a photoshoot of our 2023 resort prints & new styles added to the Essentials Collection. The Diplomat Beach Resort served as a beautiful backdrop for our latest sun safe solutions. 

The Diplomat Beach Resort

Located in sunny South Florida, The Diplomat Beach Resort is a luxe and tranquil oceanside paradise perfect for any type of getaway, family vacation or even in our case, a photoshoot. This luxury beach resort offers a one-of-a-kind experience featuring gorgeous rooms & suites, delicious dining options helmed by their executive Chef Rashaad Abdool, private cabanas, beachfront pools, an award-winning 15,000 square foot spa, complimentary watersports and so much more!

The Diplomat Beach Resort Suite

The Diplomat opened in 1958 with only 150 rooms available. Fast forward to 2023, the beach resort now offers 1,000 spacious guest rooms & suites, as the second-largest beach resort in the entire southern half of Florida. Each room is designed to be a comfortable retreat featuring stunning views, stylish decor & contemporary furnishings.

Fun fact: Every U.S. President since 1958 has either discreetly vacationed at this resort or has partaken in an on-property function.
