Philippe Starck stunner mixing Eames, Gaudí and Dalí with pretty people, bottle service and a serious pool party
A game changer when it opened nearly two decades ago, the Delano had a nip and tuck in 2012 that has kept it at the front of the South Beach pack, mixing a billowing white fabric-draped lobby (the brain child of Philippe Starck) with Alice in Wonderland whimsy (think oversize chessboards, a silver table and chairs that appear to float in the pool). But the Delano also avoids being overly trendy by mixing in classic pieces by Dalí, Eames and Gaudí, along with a healthy dose of Art Deco architecture. Hip kid designer Tim Andreas of Banjo AD revamped the rooms, expanding on Starck’s original Greek Isles–inspired white-on-white minimalism with moss-green marble, apple-green edged rugs and oversize plants that mirror the lush grounds outside. You'll find one of the South Beach scenes around the sexy Rose Bar (and its infamous pool table), the palm-ringed DJ’d pool party, and the glitzy subterranean FDR club, one of the toughest ropes in town. Light and airy Bianca serves a mix of healthy grilled seafood, hearty pizzas and indulgent pastas. Or refuel over lobster, wagyu and black truffle rolls in the lobby’s buzzy sushi bar. The 3,500-square-foot spa floats above it all, offering wellness, anti-aging and radio frequency treatments in addition to a full menu of traditional massages, facials and body treatments.
