Set within the signature Faena District of Mid-Beach, Faena Hotel Miami Beach is unlike any other resort in the city. The whimsical yet decadent design offers high-flying vignettes with bold colors and flashy finishes. Outside, a woolly mammoth skeleton dipped in 24-karat gold overlooks the beach. Suites are furnished with turquoise velvet drapes and luscious red velvet sofas with animal-print and brushed-gold accents. Inspired by Europe’s grand opera houses, the Faena Theater stages cabaret shows and music acts regularly. Relax in the pool or book an appointment at the Tierra Santa Healing House, a five-star spa. A true foodie destination, the hotel’s Los Fuegos restaurant is headed by Argentinian asado grill master Francis Mallmann.
