The 8 Most Luxurious Hotels in Miami

Miami’s clout as a celebrity destination and art hub make it a desirable stay for some of the world’s most extravagant travelers. In the Magic City, there’s no shortage of luxury hotels, replete with lush spas, rooftop dining and some of the most elaborate amenities that money can buy. Here’s a round-up of the eight most luxurious stays for your next trip to Miami.

EAST, Miami
Hotel
EAST

Just atop the Brickell City Center shopping mall, East towers above the rest with unique views of the concrete jungle that is Downtown and Brickell. The poolscape boasts asymmetrical pools with waterfalls and two Jacuzzis in an industrial design surrounded by orange loungers, umbrellas and tropical vegetation that add contrast to the sleek urban theme. Order craft cocktails poolside or wander about the expansive courtyard to enjoy the sky-high breeze and energy of the city life. The hotel’s attempted to establish a lifestyle so it’s no wonder it comes with a fitness center, restaurants and the trendy rooftop lounge Sugar – which is the spot to celebrate your #MiamiLife any evening.

Acqualina Resort & Spa is a Mediterranean-style getaway | Courtesy of Acqualina Resort & Spa/Hotels.com

The five-star, 4.5-acre Acqualina Resort & Spa in Sunny Isles, which resembles a Mediterranean villa, looks like it was plucked right off the coast of Spain and dropped in South Florida. Inside, the 98 rooms are fit for royalty. Outside, swaying palms, striking red pool furniture and quiet views of the Atlantic ocean make visitors feel like they are staying on a private island. After a relaxing treatment at the 20,000-square-foot Acqualina Spa by ESPA, visit Il Mulino NY for Italian fine dining. Bespoke ACQUA Experiences – which include a curated list of yoga classes, culinary and shopping tours, art classes and wildlife experiences led by local experts – will immerse you in Miami’s culture.

Biltmore Hotel Miami Coral Gables

Biltmore Hotel Miami Coral Gables

Biltmore Hotel Miami Coral Gables | Courtesy of Biltmore Hotel Miami Coral Gables / Hotels.com

The Biltmore is a pricier option, but if you can afford it, staying in this stunning hotel located in the heart of Coral Gables is worth it. It is by far one of the most beautiful hotels in Miami, with a rich history and Italian, Moorish, and Spanish architectural influences. The hotel has a lush golf course, restaurants that are just as stunning as they are delicious (like the Palm d’Or and Fontana), and a large pool surrounded by statues reminiscent of Greek goddesses. This hotel is where you want to be if you’re looking to get away from the Miami Beach crowd and stay in a place that is much quieter and enchanting. Though be warned as the hotel might be haunted; yes, there is a 13th floor.

Faena Hotel South Beach
Resort
Suite at Faena Hotel South Beach

The rooms at Faena Hotel Miami Beach are colorfully decorated spaces of relaxation | Courtesy of Faena Hotel Miami Beach / Hotels.com

This extravagant hotel is all about over-the-top opulence. Faena Miami Beach is more than a hotel – it’s a four-block district. With a 100,000 square-foot beach club, a 3,000-square-foot Faena Theater and nightly Cirque du Soleil-like cabaret performances, Faena is the pinnacle of luxury stays. At the Faena Bazaar shopping complex, you can make your way through classic boutiques. Afterwards, relax at the 22,000-square-foot Tierra Santa Healing House – a South American-inspired spa with the largest hammam in Miami. With a nod to Miami’s inspired artistic roots, floor-to-ceiling wall murals by Juan Gatti frame the hotel’s entrance while Alberto Garutti-designed chandeliers – made to look like lightning strikes – are hung throughout. Intricately-patterned mosaic floors are crafted from 632,000 tiles and a $6m Damien Hirst-designed skeleton of a woolly mammoth covered in 24-karat gold is a city-wide treasure. Hungry guests will be more than satisfied at Los Fuegos by Francis Mallmann – an award-winning restaurant with authentic Argentine live-fire cooking. Alternately, Pao is a jaw-dropping Asian concept by James Beard Award-winner Paul Qui that’s located just past the hotel lobby, overlooking Faena’s “Path of the Warrior.”
