Miami’s sexy vibe and pretty beaches lend itself to a great getaway spot for couples. For a romantic getaway, we found the hotels that offer a little piece of paradise — distinctively beautiful settings, mood-lit design, a fabulous spa, bathrooms built for two, and (we didn’t forget) large, sumptuous beds. Take a look at the most romantic hotels in Miami and start planning your amorous vacation!
The 74-room boutique Metropolitan by COMO is a gorgeous Art Deco property from the luxurious COMO brand. The pistachio and gray guest rooms are stylish, and outfitted with modern features like 42-inch flat-screen TVs, Nespresso machines, and free Wi-Fi. The hotel's other amenities include a pretty outdoor pool, beach service, fine-dining restaurant and bar, elegant spa, and rooftop hydrotherapy pool. Service is genuinely friendly and doting, and the hotel attracts an upscale clientele of primarily couples. If you're looking for a calm, relaxing getaway in South Beach, Metropolitan by COMO is the premier pick.
Seductively dark, Asian-inspired design; impeccable service; huge, immaculate rooms; three pools (each a different temperature); and a prime beachside location make the exclusive Setai one of the best -- and most romantic -- hotels in South Beach. The sleek yet opulent rooms come with a black granite soaking tub right by the foot of the bed. In the bathroom, there's a sexy, freestanding rainfall shower with floor-to-ceiling black tiles.
With one of the sexiest pools in Miami, surrounded by dense palms, colorful cushions set along the grass, and wood-lattice cabanas, W South Beach is a great spot for couples looking for a romantic -- and relaxing -- getaway. As a W hotel, it features the top-notch Bliss spa (which offers couples massages, among many other treatments), and large, modern rooms with uber-sexy bathrooms complete with luxurious showers, double sink vanities, and Bliss toiletries.
Bright, massive, elaborately designed rooms -- all overlooking the ocean -- and private designated assistants to attend to your every whim make the Tides a popular choice among South Beach honeymooners. Marble-lined bathrooms feature deep soaking tubs, and the intimate pool, restaurant, and coral bar all come with especially attentive yet discreet service.
Located on the topmost floors of the JW Marriott building, the 44-room Hotel Beaux Arts is even more upscale than theMarquis. Though its shared facilities with the Marquis may detract from its intimate, boutique feel, guests do have a specialcheck-in area in the lobby, and the hotel is ultra luxe: all rooms have flat-screen TVs and iPads, the bathrooms are marble with separate bathtubs and showers, the decor is sleek (cherry wood floors, floor-to-ceiling windows, plush beds, minimalist furniture), and the views are amazing.
The 243-room St. Regis Bal Harbour is one of the most luxurious beachfront hotels in Miami. Highlights include lavish decor, spacious guestrooms with oceanfront balconies, two infinity pools, three on-site dining options, and a prime location across from Bal Harbour Shops. The hotel is an excellent choice for visitors who are indifferent to the South Beach party scene. Rooms are among Miami's priciest (for good reason); travelers looking for a cheaper alternative should try Fontainebleau Resort, 10 minutes south, which has less impressive rooms but more pools, restaurants, and nightlife.
The luxurious, 426-room 1 Hotel South Beach in Miami Beach opened in March 2015 after a complete renovation (it was formerly Perry South Beach, and the Gansevoort Miami Beach before that). The 1 Hotel brand is extremely eco-conscious and the entire hotel has environment-friendly features including salvaged wood, hemp mattresses, and take-home socks instead of disposable slippers. Top-notch amenities include direct beach access; four pools, including one on the roof; three bars and fine-dining restaurant; fitness center; event spaces; and Tesla car service within a three-mile radius.
Located on beautiful Brickell Key, this beachless island resort offers serenity by way of warm, creative design, a phenomenal spa, a first-rate gym, and invigorating fusion cuisine. Deluxe skyline rooms are large and include one of the most luxurious open bathrooms in Miami.
Separated from busy South Beach by lush gardens, this 46-room art deco hotel is a low-key oasis. There's a top-notchrestaurant, free off-site gym passes, and a small, but serene pool. For the price, other hotels offer more features or direct beach access, but the massive, Wallace Tutt-designed rooms are hard to beat.
Z Ocean Hotel balances modest amenities and service with big, comfortable suites, a prime location, and reasonable rates. Marketing itself to adult couples, it successfully achieves an intimate, laid-back vibe.
After a complete revamping of the former Seville Hotel, the Miami Beach EDITION opened in December 2014 to provide hip, luxury accommodations in the burgeoning Mid-Beach area. Mimicking the hotel's overall design, the 294 sleek, spare guest rooms feature light woods and white fabrics. Amenities are undoubtedly top-notch: There are two outdoor pools; a beachfront with chairs and umbrellas; fine dining Matador restaurant; an upscale spa; and an underground nightclub/bowling alley/skate rink.
Three blocks from the beach, Vintro Hotel South Beach is an upscale Art Deco boutique hotel. The 50 guest rooms have retro furnishings in citrus tones, and feature flat-screen TVs, Illy espresso machines, and rainfall showerheads. However, some rooms have parking lot views, or lack views altogether. But, there are quite a few amenities to lure travelers: vouchers for beach chairs and towels; a rooftop plunge pool; on-site fine dining restaurant; lobby bar; free bicycles; and free Wi-Fi. For adults 18 and over only, the hotel is a great pick for couples who don't mind sacrificing direct beach access for a hip atmosphere.
