It is perhaps the trendiest of South Beach Hotels. Every room and space in the Delano is a design masterpiece. Dominated by white and marble, in a sought-after minimal style. There is a pool where you can spend your day swimming or strolling around against the backdrop of music, parties and throngs of people. Celebrities in the pool.
You never have to leave. At the Delano Miami you can go to the movies, play volleyball, swim, sleep, have treatments at the Agua spa and eat everything from sushi to lobster ravioli. And every space within the hotel is its own sphere. The Blue Door restaurant, which Madonna co-owns, is a hotspot, packed with hotel guests, stars, models and locals.
What our Guests say:
Delano offers world-class standards–from chic decor to attentive staffing. And the food offerings are ALL tasty. Highly recommend staying here when in Miami! ♥ Great hotel for architecture’s lovers ! Art deco outside, Philip Stark’s inside, and great pool, great food, great concierge. Children were really welcome. ♥ I am from Sweden and I can really recommend this hotel. It has everything you need, pool, private beach, excellent dining and tuesday nights at Florida room fulfill your stay.
What we suggest: Don’t even think about eating before eight o’clock. The pool table is always draped with hot young things, the bar is small, dark and sophisticated, and the lobby is sexy with its towering columns, oversized mirrors and billowing curtains (despite the sunburned tourists who stroll through around 7pm before heading off to Joe’s Stone Crab).
The private beach has peach and white tents stocked with beach balls and fruit. But the pièce de résistance is the pool. You can spend an entire day underwater—there’s music (yes, underwater music), and separate spots for playing, floating around, even snacking.
Delano is situated directly on the beach. Guests enjoy complimentary oversize beach chairs and umbrellas and water sports are available at a fee. The beach area also includes a tented children’s play area stocked with toys.
Steps from the ocean, dining by the pool is the perfect spot for a quick bite or refreshing drink from sunrise to sunset. The casual but stylish poolside bistro serves an imaginative menu of Mediterranean style appetizers and tapas, grilled fresh seafood and meats. No reservations are required.
• Delano offers a wide variety of dining choices to suit any mood. The Blue Door restaurant inside the Hotel, under the direction of restaurateur Jeffrey Chodorow and renowned chef Claude Troisgros, provides refined modern French cuisine with Brazilian and global influences.
• What we love
It’s right on the ocean and steps from South Beach’s hottest nightclubs. The brunch at on-site restaurant Blue Door Fish. Uber-modern Philippe Starck design. After-dark fun at The Florida Room, the on-site lounge designed by Kravitz Designs. The chic, small rooftop Agua spa, which offers 360 degree views of South Beach, as well as its famous Milk and Honey Massage. Private, whimsical, luxurious bungalow-style rooms by the pool.
• What to know
The hotel is ground zero when it comes to bustling South Beach action, which often lasts until the wee hours of the morning. During your stay you’ll likely encounter a velvet rope or two. It can take some time (up to 30 minutes) to get your car from the valet, so call far enough in advance. The on-site restaurants are some of the best in SoBe, and therefore a bit pricey. Standard rooms are a bit smaller than at most luxury hotels.
Beauty & Wellness
Located on the hotel’s roof, the renowned Agua Spa in Miami is a serenely beautiful and peaceful space that offers state-of-the-art spa treatments aimed at rejuvenating the body, mind and spirit. Housed in a pristine white setting with an enormous private terrace and 360-degree views, agua is the ultimate sanctuary. Agua at Delano along with Agua at Mondrianin South Beach are the only two spas in the United States to carry products by SJAL.
