Four reasons why Fontainebleau Miami Beach is Florida’s most iconic hotel
Nowhere embodies Miami’s glamour more than the storied and sprawling Fontainebleau Miami Beach, where celebrity appearances and unrivalled luxury come standard
Set aptly on Millionaire’s Row, Fontainebleau Miami Beach has been a superstar hangout since the 1950s when Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra would saunter its halls and today a Kardashian or two prop up its glittering bars. Iconic not only for the company it attracts, the oceanfront hotel also sprawls across 22 acres of dazzling coastline with four towers filled with stylish rooms, each designed to accommodate every type of traveller from families to party paramours. Here are four reasons why a stay at this prodigious hotel is worth the hype.
Regal rooms in a variety of configurations
If you’re looking to live it up in understated elegance, you’ve come to the right place. Comfort and utility are front and centre in each of Fontainebleau’s rooms, where luxurious, king-size beds meet glossy marble bathrooms, and balconies offer mesmerising views of the ocean or Biscayne Bay. A favourite among A-listers and dignitaries, the hotel’s specialty suites are the real deal for blow-out extravaganzas; two- to five-bedroom penthouses set across up to 10,000-sq-ft dish up knockout views, while living areas offer smooth sophistication and subtle touches of extravagance for the perfect stay. If you’re looking for something for the family, one- and two- bedroom suites are ideal, and many come with a wet bar and full-size kitchens complete with GE Monogram appliances and sleek granite countertops.
Your pick of pools or the beach
Fontainebleau’s sprawling size doesn’t stop at the hotel’s 1,504 rooms – its 11 pools are yet another sight to behold. Centre stage is an enormous bowtie-shaped pool with smaller, dipping pools set in its midst, while full-service cabanas deck out the surrounding outdoor space. Searching for some sand? Miami Beach is right out your door! Chase waves along miles of pristine beach or lounge under an umbrella lulled by the sound of the surf.
INNOVATIVE AND INDULGENT DINING
Fontainebleau's dining destinations includes four signature restaurants: polished Cantonese outlet Hakkasan, TV and celebrity chef Scott Conant’s Italian, Scarpetta, and Michael Mina’s - StripSteak and Pizza & Burger. StripSteak plays to the hotel’s original roots, offering the highest quality cuts direct from the onsite aging room. Breakfasts at Vida serve up light-as-air buttermilk pancakes and freshly baked pastries each morning, while Chez Bon Bon, our artisanal coffee, pastry and chocolate shop, indulges your sweet tooth. Nightlife lovers should take note of Fontainebleau’s legendary club, Liv, where the bold and the beautiful come out to play and the best of house, hip-hop and rock will set your night alight.
AWARD-WINNING LAPIS SPA
Once you’ve hung up your dancing shoes, it’s time to kick back in Fontainebleau’s mind-blowing spa, Lapis, which the legendary Martha Stewart appropriately dubbed “the most beautiful in America”. Exorcise tension from shoulders with the spa’s massage-jet showers, pamper dehydrated skin with a hydrating collagen facial before sinking into an ocean-inspired body wrap or a eucalyptus steam bath. The spa’s signature mineral pool and hammams provide immersive relaxation, using muscle relief and botanical essences to revive and energise weary limbs.
What inspires you? Fontainebleau is a canvas for your imagination – a world where you are free to create an experience that expresses you, however you define your perfect day. Dine, shop, play, spa, or simply relax, in an environment that surrounds you with every kind of pleasure and invites every sort of adventure.
