If you’ve ever been to Bal Harbour, Fla., just outside Miami, then you have a pretty good idea of how luxe South Florida can be. Pristine beaches, year-round warm weather and high-end shopping all make this destination worth your time — and now, you’ve got a new luxury hotel to call home when you’re away from home. Set to open Jan. 19, The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort boasts 243 guestrooms and suites (with ocean views).
There are 139 king rooms, 34 double rooms, 63 one-bedroom king suites, seven two-bedroom king suites and one presidential suite. And for the snowbirds who want to stay for months at a time, the luxury hotel also offers 307 residences. The hotel was designed by Sieger Suarez Architectural Partnership and decorated by design firm Yabu Pushelberg, drawing inspiration from Miami’s Art Deco history. Inside, you can check out contemporary works by Sawada Hirotoshi and Kohei Nawa as well as a graffiti-style mural in the hotel’s bar by Miami artist Santiago Rubino. High-tech amenities abound, such as programmed keycards that automatically usher you to your floor. And if you take the plunge for the 2,800-square-foot presidential suite, you’ll have a private elevator, gourmet kitchen, media room, two bedrooms, a dining room and a 1,200-square-foot private balcony.
In addition to plush accommodations, The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort offers Remède Spa, a 14,000-square-foot facility with all the spa and salon treatments you could want. J&G Grill is master chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s newest venture, using his tested fusion of Asian and French cuisine, with a Wine Vault filled with 2,500 international pours. Other dining options at The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort include the South American-influenced Fresco and the breakfast, lunch and dinner spot Atlantico.
