Whether you want to wake up to a city skyline or uninterrupted sea views, a room with a balcony offers a private vista of magnificent Miami Beach. A dream for sunset-watchers and couples, these hotels also have exclusive restaurants, heavenly infinity pools and drop-dead gorgeous beaches. Just specify when booking to guarantee your outdoor space, and then sit back and take in the city’s sights without going anywhere.

The Miami Beach EDITION

An unlikely collaboration between Marriott and king of boutique cool Ian Schrager, the EDITION is an irresistible mash-up of impossible glamour and no-holds-barred fun. The dramatic all-white lobby shimmers with gold columns and candles, yet rooms are starkly minimal, with some having balconies that overlook the ocean below. You probably won’t linger, though, as the property has two lively pools, a cutting-edge spa, a stellar nightclub and 70,000sqft (6,503sqm) of a powder-soft beach, the largest of any hotel in the city.

Book carefully if a balcony is non-negotiable at the Setai. Rooms are either in a restored art deco building or a glittering glass tower looming over South Beach, but only the tower’s oceanfront suites come with balconies. Complimentary airport transfers, valet parking and breakfast also come with these rooms, but the sweeping ocean views are alone worth every penny. Tear yourself away for the exclusive Asian restaurant, Jaya, temperature-controlled pools and exclusive spa specializing in Swiss anti-ageing skincare.

    When you need some time away from the razzle-dazzle of South Beach, recharge at the coolly tasteful Mondrian, overlooking Biscayne Bay. Acclaimed Dutch designer Marcel Wanders designed this all-suite property, which features dreamy white spaces, unexpected design flourishes and an impossibly grown-up pool. The brand-new beach club, built in 2020, is the Mondrian’s secret weapon, though, including a marina, an open-air living room and a spa offering everything from moonlit yoga to mindful meditation classes.

    Take refuge from Ocean Drive’s noisy bars and neon with jazz evenings, sunrise yoga and poetry at the gloriously refined Betsy, in the heart of the Art Deco Historic District. This family-owned property is a refreshing alternative to the city’s flashier hotels, though its rooftop infinity pool and renowned seafood restaurant ups the glam quota. Several rooms have balconies and feel like a home away from home, with alpaca bed throws, walnut floors, curated libraries and artwork from the owner’s personal collection.
