1 Hotel South Beach is a sexed-up addition to Miami’s already sizzling scene. It features four pools ringed by cushioned loungers, cabanas and lavender daybeds, which seemingly float above the water, all of it providing the perfect perch to people-watch or take in the ocean views. The guest rooms vary from City View Kings to Oceanfront Suites with balconies, but all are decorated in salvaged driftwood, soothing neutral shades and hemp-blend Keetsa mattresses wrapped in organic cotton linens. Some have private furnished balconies and full kitchens — perfect for extended stays or families. There are all the mod cons, too, such as 55-inch LCD flat-screen TVs, Bluetooth speakers and Nespresso coffee machines. Start the morning with paddleboard yoga, have an in-room massage or go for a workout in the spacious Field House gym. When hunger strikes, you can head to the rooftop pool or casual Sand Box; both offer ocean views along with food and drinks, or sit down at Beachcraft, a Mediterranean grill focusing on fresh-caught seafood. Sip a nightcap in the farm-to-table lobby bar Tom on Collins, and the next morning have the chef make you a picnic to take to the beach. And speaking of a beach break, the concierge can offer advice on adventures accessible on foot, bicycle or in one of the fleet of Teslas available to guests.
In the Area
Leave your bathing suit drying on the balcony and step out to see some of South Beach’s cultural destinations. Right behind the hotel, the Bass Art Museum has a small but spectacular permanent collection; it also frequently hosts events. A few blocks to the south, the New World Symphony holds great concerts and frequent, free Wallcasts, in which movies or concerts are broadcast on the Frank Gehry–designed exterior to be enjoyed by viewers in the park opposite. And if you make your way seven blocks down, the shops, cafés and farmers and antique markets of pedestrian Lincoln Road await. Once you’ve explored the city side of your home away from home, hit the boardwalk on the ocean side to bike, jog or stroll South Beach.
How to Get There
Brilliant stay, 5 nights for Le Miami.
It’s a big 426-room resort yet they manage to make it personalized.
The whole concept is executed beautifully and immediately puts you in Zen mode with rustic-edged wooden tables, gold coral sea fans printed on the walls and reclaimed Colorado beetle kill pine wood, naturally dyed a cornflower blue colour.
Beds are plush and pretty, on raised platforms so they appear to float.
Also the bathrooms are equally inviting and oversized with Calacatta marble soaking tubs, rainfall showers with peek-a-boo windows and trough sinks.
Not all rooms had the balcony that I booked but very many do, and an ocean-facing room is far superior to the city view, I saved on $ and booked the road view :-(
The staff are extremely well trained, competent and professionally friendly without being servile .
In order to lower their carbon footprint, they’ve replaced paper brochures with a 1 Hotels Field Guide app, allowing for customisation in everything from room temperature to in-room dining.
The water faucet is also a nice addition.
In addition to the multiple swimming pools, there’s also a spa, salon, and boot camp-style gym. The ground level is home to a handful of luxury boutiques a lovely lounge with great live music and a Soul Cycle spinning studio. The gym and F&B outlet is terrific. This brand will do well.
Do yourself a favour and stay here it’s much better than Nautilus where I stayed last year.
I recently stayed at the 1 Hotel South Beach. From the moment I arrived, everyone was smiling and attentive. The room was clean and so luxurious.
I went right to the rooftop pool, and was greeted and seated immediately at a beautiful spot next to the pool. Sean and Abel were taking care of me at the pool, and they made my day... I never wanted for anything (top notch service!)
Sushi and the Tuna Crudo were so delicious! I will be back again soon!
My girlfriends & I had a great trip. Our condo was amazing especially the view! We loved the staff who was extremely friendly. The amenities were great especially the gym. The Tesla transportation was the best. Our only complaint was the pool was extremely crowded and the water was warm. We can’t wait to be back!
I had an amazing experience. The staff is very friendly and made-me feel comfortable & appreciate. I would definitely come again and recommend all my friends. Attended to my every need. They made sure I was doing good and came around every so often to see if everything was good or if my company and me needed anything. Amazing customer service. Thank you for your amazing staff and relaxing experience.
We came to the hotel for getaway from Canada, great location, great breakfast, and amazing facilities.
Rooftop is spectacular day and night time, even if your not staying at the hotel I recommend visiting it.
The only thing is that make sure everyone coming along is above 18 as they are strict about that.
