Here’s how you can live the good life in Miami.

Miami is all about glitz and glam in the tropics. Whether you’d like to charter a yacht to cruise around Biscayne Bay or get VIP treatment at an event like Art Basel Miami Beach, there are plenty of ultra-luxurious things to do in Miami.

Charter a Private Yacht in Biscayne Bay

There’s no better way to tour Biscayne Bay than by luxury yacht. Invite 100 of your closest friends to sip Champagne with some of the best views in the city. Biscayne Lady Yacht Charters has an impressive fleet of yachts and first-class customer service. Charter consultants will help you select the boat that fits the bill. The Venetian Lady Yacht and Miami Lady sightseeing vessels can both hold up to 140 guests. Or opt for the Biscayne Lady Yacht and party with 400 of your besties on this 111-foot yacht manufactured by Austal. The $5 million vessel has three levels including a sky deck. The crew can set up dining and entertainment options for you, as well as themed signature cocktails.

Hire a Stylist to Take You Shopping

Home to some of the biggest names in the fashion industry, Miami has a wealth of high-end boutiques designed to get you decked out from head to toe. The Miami Design District is the ultimate shopping hub featuring boutiques by Hermès, Christian Louboutin, Cartier, Céline, Louis Vuitton, Prada and more. Or head north to Bal Harbour Shops where you’ll find Dolce & Gabbana, Giorgio Armani, Gucci, Jimmy Choo, Tiffany & Co., Versace and more. But perhaps you want a bit more handholding while you shop. No need to break a sweat because Miami has a handful of fashion forward stylists, who’d be happy to lend you their expertise for the right fee, of course. Elysze Held and Kelly Saks are two of the most highly sought after personal stylists in Miami.

Fly in a Helicopter to Hard Rock Stadium

Imagine how Miami looks from a bird’s eye view: Emerald green waters lapping at the shoreline and towering skyscrapers jutting up from the beach. Arrive in style to a concert or a Miami Dolphins game and beat the traffic on I-95. There’s no need for you to develop road rage en route to your planned event. Did you know the helipad at Hard Rock Stadium has two giant guitars painted on it? You can see it all from the sky. No worries if you don’t have a helicopter of your own. Chopper is the Uber of helicopters and they’ll pick you up. Or check out one of the helicopter tour companies in Miami like FLYNYON—they have doors-off flights so you can capture that perfect shot with your camera.

Cruise Ocean Drive in an Exotic Car

Stand out from the crowds on South Beach and make Ocean Drive your very own runway with a fashionable Lamborghini or Ferrari. Or maybe go with something a little more sophisticated like a Bentley. Exotic cars and Miami go together like palm trees and the beach. There are plenty of places to rent a head-turning automobile. Check out Lou La Vie and they’ll even deliver a sports car directly to your hotel.

Rent Out an Entire Spa for the Evening

Need a little rest and relaxation? Take a spa day to a whole other level. At some of the luxury hotels around Miami, you can rent out the entire spa for yourself or to spend time with that special someone. For example, at the five-star award winning Acqualina Resort & Spa in Sunny Isles Beach, you can book an after-hours private royal spa suite experience which includes two hours of custom-designed treatments for two, as well as sole use of the spa pool and surrounding deck. It’s the perfect way to get pampered without all the prying eyes.

Get VIP Treatment at a Miami Event

Miami is the ultimate destination to celebrate VIP treatment and there’s no shortage of popular year-round events that cater to the who’s who of celebrities and the social elite. You can purchase VIP admission to any number of events like Art Basel Miami Beach, South Beach Wine and Food Festival, Miami Fashion Week, Ultra Music Festival, Miami Open and more. And don’t forget the handful of high-end dance clubs open almost every night of the week. Want to cut the line past that red velvet rope? Sometimes it’s who you know that makes all the difference.
