When you visit Miami Art Basel (December 4–7) and Design Miami/ (December 3-7) you must stay in the most beautiful Hotels and Resorts. Where’s a list that can help you.
Miami is one of the youngest cities in the U.S., founded in 1896. It has now become one the biggest tourist destinations in the country and is as culturally as diverse as any other big American city.
The Miami Design District is a neighborhood dedicated to innovative fashion, design, architecture and dining experiences. The Miami Design District is owned by Miami Design District Associates, a partnership between Dacra, founded and owned by visionary entrepreneur Craig Robins, and L Real Estate, a global real estate development and investment fund, specializing in creating luxury shopping destinations.
Opened in 2006 in a building originally constructed in 1957, “The Lido Spa”, this hotel was transformed by André Balazs from a antiquated property . The hotel’s general aesthetic scheme is something of a juxtaposition of the authenticity of an old world European bathhouse and the sleek, coolness of Scandinavian design.
Inspired by Versace fantasy villa, this hotel is a Mediterranean-tinged luxury retreat in Miami Beach with dedicated butler service and a fine-dining restaurant. Palladian-style gilding, gargantuan custom-made beds, hand-painted trompe l’oeil, heavy tasseled fabrics, opulent marble bathrooms – more is definitely more at this exclusive Florida enclave.
With a fresh colonial feel to its communal areas and a look that’s more South Carolina than South Beach, this deco dame emerged in 2009 from a fabulous freshen-up and face lift. Contemporary art, a modern attitude, and a charitable spirit ensure The Betsy hotel, an independently owned hip hostelry, shines on South Beach.
Here where the classic meets the contemporary, you can find bright white 16-storey building lords it over its Miami Beach surroundings, with a Cowshed Spa, an A-list restaurant, retro quirks and a rooftop pool. Well furnished the guest rooms live the soho spirit mixing it with beach inspired colors.
