There is nothing hotter than Miami's 1 Hotel South Beach
As Rich Report points out, luxury and sustainability are beautifully combined in one hotel.
It can feel like the never-ending party of frat boy dreams in Miami's South Beach, with reggaeton music, neon cocktails, and bikinis everywhere. Despite its tan lines and tequilas, the iconic beach strip offers much more. A toast to the 1 Hotel South Beach with salt-rimmed glasses.
The 1 Hotel South Beach occupies an entire city block on Collins Avenue, right on the beach where South Beach meets quieter Mid-Beach. As one of the world's most coveted vacation spots, South Beach is full of amazing luxury hotels - but even though 1 Hotel South Beach is relatively new, it doesn't just compete with the older, flashier, but also re-calibrates the South Beach experience for today's sustainable luxury travel culture.
Is that possible? Those familiar with the 1 Hotel brand know how dedicated they are to the environment and sustainability. A giant 1, constructed of 7,500 pounds of Florida coral, greets guests before they even enter the sun-soaked, elegantly minimalist lobby. With great innovation and genuine enthusiasm, 1 Hotel South Beach strikes a fine balance between South Beach glitz and genuine care for the local environment. In the same way the beach itself has become a solid fixture in everyone's travel itinerary, 1 Hotel South Beach has also become the hottest spot in town for the international jet-set.
Among the 425 guest rooms at 1 Hotel South Beach, you will find tastefully decorated double bedrooms and the Oceanfront Presidential Suite. Rooms are furnished with lashings of teal and cream, with wood features that bring the beach aesthetic inside; many rooms have views of azure ocean and white gold sand.
Floor-to-ceiling windows showcase the splendid vistas of the beach and city from all the spacious, well-designed rooms at 1 Hotel South Beach.
However, the Presidential Suite combines beach chic with 21st-century luxury to its fullest extent. At 3,500 square feet, the Presidential Suite offers two king-size bedrooms, a full kitchen, and an awe-inspiring view of the Atlantic Ocean. Allow the curtains to remain open throughout the night so that you can enjoy a spectacular sunrise.
Each room is pet-friendly and features in-room greenery that enhances nature's ambiance. Yoga mats are complimentary as part of 1 Hotels' wellness emphasis. This youthful vibe is reflected in the hotel's gray robes, which include hoods, for a look that resembles plush tracksuits, in place of the traditional white cotton robes.
From Neighbors, the hipster lobby coffee shop, to Watr, the Peruvian-influenced Japanese restaurant right by the rooftop pool, 1 Hotel South Beach offers seven dining options. The wildly different venues all promote farm-stand freshness throughout their menus, sourcing ingredients from within the state.
There is a lot of interest in the restaurants throughout South Beach. Under the vivid Florida sunset, Watr offers a variety of delicious sushi options. During the night, it transforms into a popular watering hole for the city's young crowd.
Taking the traditional beach club experience and repurposing it into something that brings island paradise to Miami Beach is what makes the 1 Beach Club stand out from the rest. As far as Collins Avenue outside is concerned, it feels like a perfect oasis of tranquility and serenity; palm trees sway in the sea breeze, birds chirp amongst the vivid greenery, and the bar resembles something of a luxury beach hut, with low stools and 70s style daybeds serving imaginative cocktails.
One Beach Club's seafood really stands out on its menu, but the menu is excellent overall. There is no better way to complement crab juices than with crab croquettes, which are made with lemon caviar. A similarly delicious dish is the charred octopus. In the dessert, Greek yogurt and honey mousse are served with olive oil cake and roasted peaches for an unusual flavor combination.
This is the first Bamford spa in the United States, helmed by the British luxury wellness brand Bamford. It features 12 treatment rooms and The Woodland Room, a relaxing and rejuvenating area of 4,500 square feet.
In addition to indoor greenery and subtle wood and white tones, the interior also reflects the 1 Hotel South Beach aesthetic. In the spa, which offers a variety of holistic treatments and services, driftwood is generously used. Through the promotion of lymphatic flow, the Aftersun Body Treatment revitalizes sun-parched skin.
You could spend a long weekend at the 1 Hotel South Beach experiencing all the best of South Beach without ever leaving the premises. If you do decide to come, you'll be able to access a fleet of premium electric cars for free at the 1 Hotel.
A rooftop pool is probably the hotel's most popular attraction. A gorgeous spot full of gorgeous people, it boasts the longest rooftop pool in South Beach, a glittering Atlantic horizon matched by a bejeweled crowd that knows better than to expect a free lounger after noon.
In addition to the hotel's private beach, there is a bar and loungers on the beach. Located right next to another of the hotel's four pools, the hotel's Seedlings program is perfect for children.
