1 Hotel South Beach

A Peaceful Oasis

An eco-chic luxury resort spanning an entire city block, 1 Hotel South Beach is a stylish oasis of tranquility boasting 600 linear feet of oceanfront real estate. Its poolscape is a chic playground with three different pools found on an elevated pool deck that cascades toward the ocean. Each offers sublime ocean views while you lounge, swim and sun by the pool. You can also enjoy fresh fish tacos from the Sandbox pool bar or vegan fare inside Plnthouse café, with seating on the pool deck.

    The Delano

    Discover Whimsical Tranquility

    The Delano is home to one of the most iconic pools in South Beach. Designed by Philippe Starck and inspired by Alice in Wonderland, trees are hedged to resemble gum drops, an oversized chess set is found on the grounds and the long, narrow zero entry pool is flanked by daybeds, cabanas and lounge chairs with a café table and chairs in the shallow end. Enjoy cocktails and light bites from the poolside bar as you soak up the sun at the same pool favored by the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio and George Clooney. Keep your eye on the events calendar as it’s also known to host some raucous pool parties throughout the year.

      Fontainebleau Miami Beach

      Take a Star-Studded Swim

      For a storied oceanfront resort where Frank Sinatra once held court and the first scene of James Bond’s GoldenEye was filmed on the pool deck, all signs point to the fabulous Fontainebleau Miami Beach. Designed by architect Morris Lapidus in 1954, it oozes Miami Modern style with curvilinear lines and one of the most lavish oceanfront poolscapes on Miami Beach. There are no less than 11 separate pools on the grounds, anchored by the enormous bowtie pool, a nod to Lapidus’ original bowtie marble floors that still adorn the lobby today. There are various cabana and daybed options, as well as a family pool with a waterslide. When hunger calls, enjoy oceanfront Mediterranean dining at La Côte or from the comfort of your lounge chair.

        The Mondrian

        Take a Blissful Dip

        Designed by Marcel Wanders to resemble Sleeping Beauty’s castle, the Mondrian is a dreamy, high-concept escape with a sublime swimming pool offering rare views of Biscayne Bay and the Miami sunset over the Downtown Miami skyline. The semi-circle-shaped pool opens up to the bay, surrounded by lounge chairs, daybeds and cabanas. You’ll also find an arcade of enormous hedges and an oversized cabana over a lawn, adding to the surreal beauty of the whole vibe. And, of course, the poolside bar and restaurant is always at your service.
