Miami is a playground city, but it’s also one of the most elegant and lavish metropolises of America. That’s why we can find in Miami a strong and opulent selection of the finest hotels in the world. Today we select 10 of these amazing hotels, and some of them were even designed by some of the biggest design stars of the planet!
Acqualina Resort and Residences
17875 Collins Ave, Sunny Isles Beach, Florida 33160
At Acqualina you’ll have all that and much, much more. It’s true: You’ll be a half-hour car ride from the energy of Miami Beach, but what you get in return is worth it. A strong design hotel filled with design elegancy and even some rooms design by Karl Lagerfeld.
Beaux Art Hotel
255 Biscayne Blvd Way, Miami, FL 33131
This luxury five-star hotel has prominently been labeled as one of the world’s finest hotels by outlets such as Conde Nast and Travel + Leisure. This is a hotel that favors luxury and modernity over all else and towers over the city with 39 floors. This is an extremely exclusive luxury hotel with great service to the guests and a classy yet contemporary architectural design.
Faena Hotel Miami Beach
3201 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, Florida 33140
There’s a bit of an Alice in Wonderland vibe to the Faena, and it carries through into the rooms—particularly with the smaller accents and pieces of furniture you’ll find yourself “discovering” as your stay progresses
Fisher Island Club
1 Fisher Island Dr, Miami Beach, FL 33109
Any day you arrive at a hotel by boat is a good day, and the palms and lawns of The Fisher Island Club come into view as the ferry from Miami cruises ashore. This is an amazing sight and, like the hotel itself, it’s something to remember.
Four Seasons Hotel Miami
1435 Brickell Ave, Miami, Florida 33131
This is a world-famous five-star luxury hotel located in an island enclave called Brickell Key, which is set off away from the financial center of the city and thus offers a true escape. However, even though it’s a resort retreat, it’s still quite close to some of the nightclubs and other restaurants in the area, so you can easily dine out and have a fun night out, and then come back to the peace of your charming room!
The Ritz-Carlton, Key Biscayne
455 Grand Bay Drive Key Biscayne, Miami, FL 33149
The Ritz-Carlton, Key Biscayne is unique in that it lets you enjoy all the benefits and privacy of staying at a secluded resort, yet you’re always just a quick drive to the heart of South Beach—and just as close to the airport.
The Setail Miami Beach
2001 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139
Jay-Z, Beyoncé, and Madonna are all fans of The Setai—and it’s no wonder: It’s hard not to feel a wave of relaxation wash over you as you walk through The Setai’s two-story, zen-inspired lobby, which uses elements like black granite floors and French limestone to create an environment that is at once quite sleek and modern, but somehow also timeless.
The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort
9703 Collins Avenue Bal Harbour, Miami Beach, FL 33154
Stepping into The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort feels a little bit like entering an abstract art gallery: the entryway is a largely empty room, save for an enormous metal sculpture hanging from the ceiling and a few tufted chairs and couches that you may or may not be allowed to sit on. But check into your butler-serviced, Yabu-Pushelberg-designed suite, outfitted in a neutral palette, and you’ll feel right at home.
