Family-friendly and business-ready resort on the oceanfront in Sunny Isles, just north of Miami Beach
This hotel may not be a nightlife hot spot or have all the quirky, boutique bells and whistles, but it provides space and comfort in a reliable, no-fuss way. Public spaces follow traditional layouts with standard, modern residential-style furniture throughout, including the double-height lobby. The palette on hand is a particularly business-ish mix of neutrals with a few colorful accents from tropical flowers (and the prime sea views).
Bed and Bath
Bedrooms here are roomy. That’s one thing this area — far north of the poky old buildings that serve as hotels on South Beach — has going for it. There may be no wow factor in the rooms’ design, but all guests have to do is glance over at the floor-to-ceiling view of the aquamarine Atlantic to see why little could compete. Most rooms have separate showers and bathtubs, and all have bathrobes. Bath amenities are spa-quality, while Suites include a washer and dryer, which is handy for longer stays.
If guests love splurging on seafood by the water, Gili’s Beach Club is a great spot to do it with one’s toes in the sand. It’s the area’s first restaurant located smack-dab on the beach. Lobster and caviar are, naturally, the big-ticket menu items. More casual snack options — shrimp cocktails and carpaccio — are available alongside tropical drinks. For more traditional meals, guests have the option of Neomi’s Grill, serving classic salads, flatbreads and a fish of the day or Fusion Lounge, a dark sushi den off the lobby that serves a robust Japanese menu and sake-based cocktails. The hotel also has a fitness center and an Aquanox Spa, where treatments are superb. The resort also has tennis courts, a few retail stores and a kids’ club.
In the Area
Take a black AMEX to Bal Harbour Shops, a short eight-minute drive south, to sample the wares of Trina Turk, Tory Burch, Diane von Furstenberg and Gucci. Or, for those who prefer to ditch the clothes completely, nearby Haulover Beach Park has a clothing-optional beach. (It’s the northern third of the beach between lifeguard towers #12 and #16.) Beach ambassadors (they’re the ones in the green safari hats) are on hand to advise on etiquette. Finally, top off a stay in the area with a farewell meal at J&G Grill, serving up Jean-Georges Vongerichten-approved meals in a spectacular seaside setting.
