Where to stay
Classy: Luxury at the 1 Hotel South Beach comes in the form of sleek, eco-friendly accommodations packed with amenities so you’ll never have to go far to eat, drink and be pampered. South Beach’s only waterfront rooftop bar is on the top floor, there’s shopping and a SoulCycle on the ground floor and in between, you have your pick of vegan lunch at Plnthouse, upscale tapas at Habitat and a quickie Keratin blowout at The Salon Project by Joel Warren next to hotel’s Bamford Haybarn Spa.
Party: You might have already booked the Fontainebleau Miami Beach. The storied resort is Miami’s quintessential party hotel, partly due to its Rat Pack past (there’s an entire photography exhibit in the lobby dedicated to Sinatra) and partially because it houses the most important nightclub in the city: LIV. Staying at the property won’t guarantee you entry into LIV but it does grant you access to the adults-only Arkadia day club, Bleau Bar and more.
Chill: The Standard Spa Miami Beach’s chilled-out vibes are perfect for the laid-back bachelorette who wants to lie out, sip cocktails and take in the views. Located on Belle Isle away from busy Collins Avenue, the hotel features a full spa with a soothing hammam that’s open to guests at no extra charge. At dusk, there’s no better place to watch the sunset than at the Lido Bayside Grill with an icy frosé in hand.
Mindful: If wellness is your schtick, consider checking in at Carillon Miami, pretty much the hotel equivalent of Gwenyth Paltrow’s Goop website. Apart from its extensive hydrotherapy spa, ultra-zen amenities include vitamin-packed IV treatments, individual therapy sessions and wellness lectures. At the end of the day, though, there’s not a lot that beats Carillon’s expansive, serene aquamarine views.
