3 . Sagamore, the Art Hotel

Miami Beach, Florida

CALL DIRECT: +1 (305) 535 - 8088

VIEW

We wondered how a term like “sagamore” – usually associated with the U.S. Northeast – wound up in a hotel name in Miami. Then we forgot the question. Sagamore, the Art Hotel uses minimalist style and lots of fine art for a truly striking Miami boutique hotel experience.

What makes it even more special is that Sagamore somehow maintains its intimate, away-from-it-all atmosphere in the heart of South Beach. Maybe it’s the style and contrast in each of its 93 studios, suites and bungalows. Or it’s the sly blend of classic art gallery and contemporary chic that infuses the public spaces. It’s likely the presence of the Sagamore Collection, featuring fine art from around the world. Several areas are now dedicated to art videos as well. Whatever it is, you haven’t experienced a brand of tasteful, progressive luxury like this in Miami or anywhere else. Together with its onsite restaurant, the Sagamore Hotel will surprise and delight your every sense.

Address

1671 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139

Highlights

The Sagamore Hotel has dedicated the art video lounge, the front lobby, the art video garden and the art video screening room to become the first hotel to feature video art and a leader in the growing genre.

You probably figured we’d include something in our Top 10 Miami Resorts that involved the beach. You were right. But what you didn’t count on was everything else you’ll find at our No. 4 spot, Miami Beach Resort. It’s the Miami vacation you’ve pictured, and much more.

It’s situated right on the shoreline, near South Beach and downtown Miami. And it’s a beach resort you can actually see the beach – all 424 rooms and suites, whether at the top of the 18-story tower or somewhere lower, have floor-to-ceiling windows. The motif is Art Deco, which means lots of color that doesn’t overwhelm. Refreshing is a good term for Miami Beach Resort! That certainly goes for everything else, too: three onsite restaurants, a beachfront fitness center and the distinctive Edouard de Paris Salon and Spa with 3,000 sq. ft. of lavish oceanfront treatments and style give your idea of a Miami beach getaway a flavor you probably didn’t expect. All of the sand, sun and excitement of Miami Beach, with a style you won’t find anywhere else!

Here’s a Miami Beach hotel that hits the sweet spot in the center of everything that you’re looking for in a Florida vacation. The Palms Hotel and Spa is not a small boutique hotel or a large resort. It’s a little of each, combining the excitement of a beach getaway with a touch of sheer class.

The difference at The Palms becomes clear with its abundant tropical gardens leading to the beach, and the Aveda spa – the only luxury beach spa in Florida and the only oceanfront Aveda resort spa in the United States. You’ll also know you’re not staying at just any Miami hotel when you sample Essensia, the onsite restaurant and lounge which features organically-based cocktails and gourmet meals prepared with organic, seasonal and local ingredients. This natural flair blends with your immediate surroundings at the 243-room Palms Hotel. The beach service alone will make it hard to leave; but the entire time you have easy boardwalk access to Miami Beach and its vibrant culture, which brings out the intimate boutique hotel side of the Palms even more.

Welcome to pure luxury, the kind you dream about regularly (well, at least we do). It’s the kind that takes you out of Miami Beach, just north of it actually, and into a completely new world. In other words, the Acqualina Resort and Spa on the Beach is a luxury Miami vacation at its finest.

It’s located in Sunny Isles Beach, but with its stunning architecture you’d swear you’re somewhere on the Mediterranean Sea. Everything about this place is acclaimed, from the oceanfront Il Mulino New York restaurant to the Mobil Four Star ESPA oceanfront spa. That’s in addition to the Crystal Steam Rooms, Finnish Saunas, Ice Fountains and Experience Showers – thermal heat areas that are yours to enjoy as a guest. What we love most about Acqualina is that while it’s definitely a luxury resort, it’s equally a family resort complete with its own children’s program. Acquamarine presents fascinating lessons in marine biology cleverly disguised as an assortment of games, activities, projects and adventures.

You know immediately this isn’t just another beach getaway. There are Florida beach vacations and there are Florida island vacations, where you feel a world away from everything. The difference is…well, rather than try to explain it, let us simply refer you to the Grove Isle Hotel and Spa.

There’s a lot that combines here to make you feel like this is your private beach vacation. The Grove Isle Hotel and Spa has just 50 rooms, settled into the foliage of a 20-acre island paradise just offshore from Miami Beach. There’s an 85-slip private marina, and the same world-class sand you’ll find on the mainland. And each room has a style that recalls Old Florida – eclectic luxury inspired by the area’s diverse past. In case you get restless, you can visit the Grove Isle Tennis Center, a state-of-the-art fitness facility with 12 new courts and a boutique-style tennis shop; or, stop by the fitness center with Pilates classes, a Yoga Deck and a jogging path that highlight the breathtaking Biscayne Bay.

We thought that a resort that bills itself as the ultimate Miami attraction would probably be a good spot to check out. We were right. Even more than its impressive tower and landscapes, Trump International Beach Resort is equally spectacular no matter what kind of beach vacation you’re after.

In some ways, Trump International is its own world. There’s upscale shopping and an art gallery on site, along with a nightclub and gourmet dining at Neomi’s. The beach is right outside, and so is a tremendous complex of grotto-style and lap pools, cabanas, waterfalls and tropical landscapes. If you’re in the mood for some adventure, Trump International can easily take you off the sand and onto a jet ski or kayak. Fishing charters, snorkeling, diving and cruises along the beautiful Intracoastal Waterway are arranged just as easily. And for the kids – yes, Trump International is great for Miami Beach family vacations, too – Planet Kids is a daily program full of activities and pure fun in the Florida sun.

10 . Mondrian Miami

Miami, Florida

CALL DIRECT: +1 (305) 514 - 1500

VIEW

You might have expected this: a Miami hotel that invokes the name of an influential artist. While we didn’t find any original Mondrian works here, we did find plenty of style courtesy of Marcel Wanders, a fellow Dutch artist with, as you’ll discover here, plenty of influence of his own.

The visual power of Mondrian Miami is bound to become a huge part of your entire Miami Beach vacation. The custom furnishings, the huge windows, the use of simplicity and boldness to highlight the ever-present Biscayne Bay outside make up an unforgettable atmosphere. That holds true for all kinds of Miami getaways. The pool area has the same style with plenty of little nods to romance – the secret pathways and “kissing corners” will need no introduction for couples. Yet if you bring the family, you won’t be disappointed. There’s a separate area with a kid’s pool, play areas and toy rooms. We could call it the ultimate blend of form with function, or comment on the dramas created by the design elements. Or, we could just say – we couldn’t complete our Top 10 without including Mondrian Miami!

Fun facts

The overall design of the Mondrian Miami is inspired by Marcel Wanders’ vision of “Sleeping Beauty’s Castle.”

Getting there

From Miami International Airport, take the ramp toward South Le Jeune/SR-953/SR-836 West/ Coral Gables. Merge onto NW 42nd Avenue toward SR-836 East and take the FL-836 East exit toward I-95 downtown. Merge onto I-395 East. After I-395 turns into MacArthur Causeway, take the Alton Road exit and make a slight right onto Alton Road. Turn left onto 11th Street and right on West Avenue. Mondrian South Beach is located at 1100 West Avenue.

Highlights

The latest Agua spa in Miami features 4,000 sq. ft. of Marcel Wanders-designed interiors with six treatment rooms and signature Milk and Honey treatments. It is the only spa in the United States to carry products by SJAL and Butter London.
