Midcentury South Beach icon reimagined as a sexy modern hideaway featuring a glam pool, cabanas, and a celeb chef restaurant
Designed in the 1950s by illustrious architect Morris Lapidus (known for his eye-catching neo-Baroque Miami buildings), this South Beach icon has been totally reinvented for the 21st century by Arlo Hotels. The style falls somewhere between nautical-inspired breezy beach house and glamorous residential crash pad; the 250 airy guestrooms feature a soothing neutral palette and custom artworks from cult photographer Sante D’Orazio, along with luxe textures like white marble floors, sisal rugs and studded leather wingback chairs. Flashes of design brilliance abound, like vintage steamer trunk–inspired minibars that evoke the golden age of travel. The head-turning lobby, a hub for Miami’s abundant beautiful people, features tufted gray linen sofas and metallic orange leather chairs, while outdoors, guests can preen by the heated saltwater pool, which features an underwater sound system, private cabanas, a pool bar and a lawn leading down to the beach. Helmed by executive chef Richard Fuentes, Nautilus Cabana Club is a white-hot addition to the South Beach dining scene with its Mediterranean and Floridian-accented fare and buzzy outdoor terrace spanning 1,950 square feet.
In the Area
Sure, you could blow some serious cash at any of the swanky high-end bars and restaurants lining South Beach, but why not explore the city’s cheap-and-cheerful side instead? Start at the South Beach outpost of My Ceviche, a fun cevicheria from Miami hospitality fixtures Sam Gorenstein and Roger Duarte that serves top-notch wild seafood, bright zingy salads and tacos using free-range meat. Need to eat something to soak up those adult beverages you consumed poolside? Get thee to La Sandwicherie, a Miami Beach go-to for sandwiches both All-American (the Terminator features three different kinds of meat, plus provolone) and Euro-influenced (croques every which way.) If you’re feeling in more of a Latin mood, hop over to El Mago de las Fritas for some authentic Cuban sandwiches or fritas, Cuban-style hamburgers loaded with delicious calories galore. Or, if you’re feeling posh but don’t want to spend a lot of dosh, slurp freshly shucked oysters at the River Oyster Bar; at the daily happy hour (4:30 to 7 p.m.) you can snare a dozen oysters for less than 20 bucks.
How to Get There
I love this hotel!
Spent a beautiful day at the pool, service was 100. Tatiana provided us with everything we needed and more! She rocks!
Hotel is beautiful, rooms are big and the vibe is super cool!!
I booked my stay with Stephanie one of the sales manager for a extended weekend and I cannot be happier with the stay. Stephanie upgraded my room and even sent a nice amenity with a handwritten note. She made sure to greet us upon arrive and gave us a tour of the property which was beautiful. The location is perfect and very conveniently located.Every staff we encountered was friendly and professional. We really enjoyed the pool and also ate at the restaurant which was also very good. ( I recommend the Nauti Burger!)The Nautilus will be my go to hotel whenever I visit Miami!
The beach was super clean and family friendly I was actually able to read a book, and my kids were safe to play in the water, and they provided towels on the chairs and to dry off you can’t get better service than that, wow phenomenal service By them
