Top Luxury Hotels in Miami Beach
If your idea of a perfect holiday is white sandy beaches, gorgeously warm waves and positively balmy weather, you’ll love Miami Beach. With miles of beautiful shorelines, plenty of activities for the whole family to enjoy (play parks for the kids and modern cocktail bars for the grown-ups), it’s little surprise that it’s such a popular holiday spot. To help you pick the perfect spot for an American holiday, we’ve compiled a handy list of some of the most luxurious hotels in Miami Beach. All you have to do is kick back and relax whilst we do the hard work for you!
1. Fontainebleau Miami Beach, Miami Beach, 5 Star
Without a doubt one of the most luxurious hotels we’ve ever seen, the Fontainebleau Miami is a stunning resort that houses fabulous bars, a whopping six pools and the new “poolscape”, boasting walls of water, as well as the quintessential swim-up bar to keep you nice and cool whilst you enjoy the sun. Don’t forget to stop by L I V at Fontainebleau, Miami’s hottest new club, as well as Scarpetta for some fantastic Italian grub.
2.Delano, South Beach, 4 Star
A destination in its own right, Delano is one of the world’s first hotels with an indoor/outdoor lobby, using the natural warmth and light of Miami to create a truly unique atmosphere. With nine distinct zones, Delano feels a little bit like a small village, with buzzing leisure spots including the world-renowned Plat Bleu and a dedicated team of water sports experts as well as quiet relaxation spots and glamorous bars.
3.Loews Miami Beach, Miami Beach, 4 Star
Loews is a hotel with a difference. Located in the Art Deco district, it’s in a quiet spot but it’s just four blocks’ walk away from Miami’s restaurants, clubs and bars. In a word, the accommodation is glorious, with furniture inspired by the surrounding area and a rather fabulous rooftop terrace. It has private beach access too – no excuse not to top up your tan.
4.The James Royal Palm, South Beach, 4 ½ Star
If you’re a bit of a history buff but you love your nightlife, The James Royal Palm is the perfect hotel for you. With just the right amount of vintage charm and luxuriously modern furnishings, this uniquely designed hotel houses a coffee bar, the James Club Bar and Florida Cookery, led by the rather brilliant Kris Wessel.
5.The Shore Club, Miami Beach, 4 Star
The Shore Club is sure to take your fancy. See what we did there? Designed by renowned British architect David Chipperfield, The Shore Club is a glamorous resort, packed with little nooks and alcoves with something new to explore around every corner. It’s also home to NOBU, one of the most popular restaurants in the world, as well as AGO, recently opened in conjunction with Robert De Niro. Book a stay here and you might just rub shoulders with the celebs.
6.Mondrian South Beach, South Beach, 4 Star
Mondrian is the very definition of a “design” hotel. The moment you step through the doors, you’ll be swept away by Marcel Wanders’ vision – floor to ceiling windows with views over Biscayne Bay, sumptuous black and gold furnishings and a seemingly magical floating staircase. Sit in the Sunset Lounge with a glass of something cold and watch the sun set over the bay and enjoy modern American cuisine with a twist.

I grew up in Southern California near LA and spent most of my adult life in Northern California in San Francisco. (Oh believe me, there is a big difference between the two locations!) In my early twenties, I was very fond of road trips and have camped and climbed most of the National Parks in the western part of the United States. I have always been amazed by the dramatic change in scenery a few miles brings when driving throughout the U.S. There is always something remarkable around every corner! I recently moved to London and hope to continue my travel whims in Europe.
