The 3 Chicest Miami Hotels To Stay Cool At This Weekend

As Summer continues to show its vibrant colors and sunsets become more and more gorgeous, our desire for a single glamorous weekend in paradise grows. There's something about Summer that brings out the wild side in all of us. We want bikini bods and perfect Sundays. We want pool parties with fruity cocktails and South Beach waves with Hamptons flair. We want it all, and why not get it? This weekend, treat yourself to a short but sweet Miami getaway at one of our top three luxurious beach resorts. We love them all, and once we're done giving you all the hot deets, we'll be right there with you – mojito in hand.

The Confidante

A newbie but goodie, The Confidante opened its doors just this past April and has quickly become one of Miami’s hottest spots for the Summer. Designed in a playful 1950s vibe combined with a sophisticated oceanfront oasis feel, this mid-century hotel is the perfect place to relax at this weekend. If old-school charm is what you seek, this Golden Era beauty designed by Martin Brudnizki and Raymond Jungles is the place to be. Whether you’re enjoying a romantic retreat with your lover or escaping the city for a three-day tanning session with friends, The Confidante’s brand new suites are exactly what you need. 

When it comes to your vacay diet, the hotel offers a variety of top tier dining options such as: a Floridian brasserie, Seagrape, and "Top Chef" alum Dale Talde's casual Asian-American restaurant and bar, TALDE Miami Beach. 

During your visit, be sure to take a dip in The Confidante’s two heated swimming pools and read a glossy while lounging in your own private cabana or bungalow. After a good rest, go stretch your muscles at the indoor/outdoor fitness center or have a drink while strolling around the property’s blooming tropical gardens. Remember, a vacation is not a vacation without a massage, so before you leave, visit The Confidante’s deluxe rooftop spa for a relaxing full-body treatment. Once you’re fresh, glowing and fully rejuvenated,  go glam up for dinner at the hotel’s high-style salon, Warren Tricomi Studio! Enjoy some craft cocktails by the ocean and say cheers to a perfect weekend.

1 Hotel South Beach

Welcome to the most eco-friendly five-star resort in Miami. Arrive with an idea, leave with a philosophy. 

This flawless South Beach gem – with the chicest pool in all of Miami – is the ultimate mix between big city luxury and tropical island nature.

Boasting a discreet yet honest glamour and innovative sustainable architecture, 1 Hotels' South Beach resort is the perfect combination of modern design and timeless elegance. 

During your stay, make time to savor the gourmet creations of Tom Colicchio while taking in the panoramic Miami views of this wonderful sea-side haven. Get a golden tan, breathe in the purity of nature and learn to appreciate the vibrant life around you. Following the wise words of CEO Barry Sternlicht, “the world around us is beautiful”, so enjoy it!

The Miami Beach EDITION

The ultimate destination for a romantic weekend getaway, the Miami Beach EDITION by Ian Schrager in partnership with Marriott International is located in its own private enclave right on the shore. Designed in a luxurious modern style, this friendly tropical resort offers a myriad of wonderful amenities such as: a state-of-the-art pool, 5-star dining services and endless entertainment. With 294 individually designed guest rooms and suites, as well as 28 private bungalows—some with two stories—and a spectacular rooftop penthouse, the EDITION even offers 26 limited edition one-of-a-kind residences designed by John Pawson, so that beach lovers can prolong their stay for as long as they like! New Summer retreat? We think so!

When it comes to fine dining, the hotel's delicious bites are overseen by Michelin-starred chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, and served in the Matador Room, a uniquely modern restaurant offering an exciting mix of Latin and Spanish cuisine with a hint of Caribbean and South American flavors. There is also an indoor gourmet marketplace which has a variety of food and beverages for dining in or on the go, plus it comes with a perfect view of the ocean! You can also try out some tasty appetizers while enjoying time with friends at the Basement Miami, a full floor entertainment area complete with a bowling alley, ice-skating rink and nightclub, all with a state-of-the-art sound system, and dramatic lighting and projection effects created by world-renowned lighting designer Patrick Woodroffe.

Our favorite part? The two outdoor pools with outdoor bars of course! Together with personal cabanas and lounge areas as well as a sandbox lounge with monthly outdoor moving screenings, this fresh outdoor space is what Miami paradise looks like. In the morning, after your hot cup of coffee, you can also boost your energy at the high performance fitness center or relax with a facial at the resort’s spa. There is never a dull moment at the Miami beach EDITION, so take a break from reality and have a mojito, it’s on us!

Have a sunny Miami weekend!
