Mondrian South Beach

1024 576 admin

About This Hotel

Miami’s South Beach is one of the most famous – and notorious – destinations for sun, sand, and dancing till dawn. And Mondrian South Beach is a very stylish luxury hotel in the midst of it all.

In Miami’s South Beach, the sun is hot, and the nightlife is hotter. And you can take it all in amid the fairytale design of Mondrian South Beach. It starts in the lobby, with oversized Alice-in-Wonderland furniture and a palace-like elliptical staircase sweeping up to the mezzanine.

If you’re looking for someone to share in your happily-ever-after, you’ll love the nightlife at Mondrian South Beach. Which, by the way, actually starts at the pool around noon, where beautiful people sip cocktails and wear very little. If you already have your Prince or Princess Charming, explore the tropical gardens, or head up to your loft-like room and chill out on your private balcony while wondering about that huge mural of a model’s face on your wall.

Enjoy paddleboarding and kayaks, jet skis for rental, and a state of the art fitness center if South Beach’s Nightlife hasn’t tired you out, and the signature GUYandGIRL Spa in case it has. Mondrian Caffè is the perfect place for everything from morning coffee and a croissant to the signature local catch of the day for dinner.

How I learned to appreciate being a military brat

717 717 admin

I used to get upset every time we had to move every 3 years and didn’t know it was molding my personality. I am very outgoing and family oriented. I love to travel and explore. I lived from Fl, NC, AZ, CA, GA, PR, Germany, OK, VA, DMV, PA, back to Miami. I am enjoying Miami like new and exploring all the cities and attractions. I became a horrific foodie and search for the most innovative ways of the simplest dishes. I do staycations to get my fix of traveling and love hotel stays and treatment. I learned how to spoil me as a mom you have to take care of yourself while taking care of others in a juggle. I am thankful for family and friends that are just as family as my blood family.

I’m Here!

About This Hotel

An elegant, beach-side haven located on Ocean Drive, The Betsy has one of the most exciting neighbourhoods in America as its backyard.

The Betsy anchors the quiet end of iconic Ocean Drive, offering all the beauty of a tropical hideout. Inside, you’ll discover everything you’d expect from a luxury boutique hotel – a courtyard and rooftop pool, beach access, sunrise yoga and a fitness center. And some things you might not, like a beloved gathering place for arts and culture, a curated arts program ranging from poetry readings to nightly live jazz and a royal welcome for four-legged friends.

Each of the hotel’s 130 rooms and suites combine sensory detail and inspiring design for a unique South Beach experience. Features include plantation-style shutters, dark walnut flooring, original artworks and Thassos marble bathrooms with Malin+Goetz amenities.

Beyond the accommodations, guests can experience two unique dining experiences. LT Steak & Seafood helms the dining component, with Chef Laurent Tourondel serving a seasonally inspired menu of surf and turf. There’s also The Alley, a trattoria-style Italian restaurant specializing in pizza with unique toppings inspired by the local landscape.
