Top Suites of Miami Beach Luxury Hotels

For many reasons – mainly the great weather – Miami Beach is currently one of the hottest destinations in the U.S. with restaurants and nightclubs galore.

While restaurants and clubs are open with indoor seating and dancing, there is also plentiful outdoor dining. Of course from the beach to boating, shopping, and so forth, the Magic City offers endless vacation opportunities.

From the family-oriented Sunny Isles to the beat of South Beach, Miami Beach’s resorts also have some of the most spectacular suites in the world. To narrow it down to just 10, we used U.S. News’ rankings which take into account awards from Forbes, Conde Nast Traveler, Travel + Leisure, AAA, and others.

U.S. News reports: This spa resort doesn’t take any of its five stars for granted, particularly when it comes to delivering first-rate customer service. Guests can’t help but keep the compliments coming: Travelers say the resort staff takes extra care to personalize each experience. However, one problem you might face is exclusivity. Acqualina Resort & Residences on the Beach only has 98 guest rooms and suites, so be sure to book early for an upcoming trip to Sunny Isles Beach, Florida. The rooms come with flat-screen TVs and private balconies, as well as double sinks and glass-enclosed showers. Meanwhile, the property also features two in-house eateries, a grab-and-go market, four pools, a spa, and beach amenities.

Grand Deluxe Three Bedroom Oceanfront Suite

The 2,031 sq. ft. Grand Deluxe Three Bedroom Oceanfront Suite offers breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean with an expansive 344 sq. ft. balcony. The suite’s elegant styling and contemporary glamour carries ocean grandeur throughout the interior design with its contemporary fabrics, soothing color palette, and marble.

US News writes: Although it only opened its doors in 2012, The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort has made a lasting impression on Miami Beach, Florida, visitors. Travelers describe their experiences here as phenomenal, primarily due to the property’s attentive staff and prime location. Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean from its seat in Bal Harbour, [the hotel] provides a less frenzied setting much appreciated by couples and travelers with children…You can pass the time at one of two outdoor pools, the 14,000-square-foot Remède Spa or the adjacent 1,000-foot-long beach. The resort also features three on-site restaurants, including one with a wine vault.

US News writes: The Setai, Miami Beach blatantly spurns Miami Beach, Florida’s neon reputation in favor of a classier ambiance, and recent guests appreciate it. Rather than funky decor and bright colors, the art deco-era property is filled with classy Asian-inspired design elements (think: muted beige and brown color palettes), plus amenities like Frette linens, flat-screen LED TVs and rainfall showers. Although The Setai’s environment may induce relaxation on the spot, previous guests highly recommend a visit to the in-house spa, which offers a wide array of massages and skin treatments and houses private baths, steam rooms, and a fitness center. You’ll also have access to not one, but three on-site infinity pools, as well as gourmet Mediterranean, American or Asian cuisine at The Setai’s three restaurants.

U.S. News reports: Formerly The Perry, South Beach (and the Gansevoort Miami Beach before that), this property completed a $500 million renovation in March 2015. And, according to recent visitors, if you stayed at the hotel during its previous ownership, you likely won’t recognize it now. Because it’s under the helm of the 1 Hotel brand, the entire property is eco-friendly.

U.S. News reports:  Travelers appreciate that the beautiful Betsy isn’t like the other hotels along Ocean Drive. As opposed to poolside parties and a lobby that doubles as a runway, this hotel is decidedly quieter and more laid-back than its competition. And the 130 rooms and suites definitely aim for substance rather than style – though that isn’t lacking either. In the accommodations, you’ll find marble bathrooms with Malin+Goetz beauty products and walk-in showers with shower wands and rainforest shower heads. Techie touches abound here, too: rooms and suites feature the basics, such as free high-speed internet access, plus over-the-top perks like TVs built into bathroom mirrors.

Perched atop the Hohauser Wing, this loft-style room boasts 710 sq. ft. of living and entertainment space, as well as a 1,000 sq. ft. wrap-around terrace, a baby grand piano, and a Viennese chandelier that spent 70 years in the Zimbabwe home of the matriarch of the family that owns the hotel.

U.S. News says: You’ll have to adjust your expectations when staying at The Ritz-Carlton, Bal Harbour.

The standard rooms at this Ritz-Carlton outpost boast 42-inch flat-screen TVs and Bose surround sound systems, while suites bump you up to two flat-screen TVs and fully equipped kitchens.
