Miami Beach, Florida
The Standard Spa Miami Beach
What it is
The sceney new brainchild of Standard Hotels (founded by André Balazs), with an al fresco “hydrotherapy playground,” five bars, and a showstopping spa and hammam.
What it isn't
Phoning it in on the wellness front. Classes here go more than skin deep, and include sunrise yoga, pilates, and group bootcamps that will get you in gear.
What we think
Call it a getaway for the cool kids. When André Balazs first founded Standard Hotels, his investors reportedly included Leonardo DiCaprio, Cameron Diaz, and Benecio del Toro, among others. The brand’s latest has the same wow factor you’d expect of a playland for Hollywood’s elite, including a speakeasy-inspired Monterrey Bar with a Murano glass chandelier and 1980s pop art and a waterfall hot tub that would keep DiCaprio’s latest lady love happy. Guest rooms have a restorative feel, thanks to a color palette of calm whites and blues; Egyptian cotton sheets; rain showers; bathrobes complete with hoods; and organic toiletries. For a more spacious room than the 230-square-foot Standard Medium option, we recommend treating yourself to a 415-square-foot Bath Terrace Large—it comes with a king-sized bed and al fresco soaking tub on your private terrace.
You're here because
You love the hotel’s “Standard Time” service, which allows you to check in or out on your own schedule…not theirs. Translation? Feel free to stay out till 4 a.m.
You’ve spent your day with your toes in the sand, so tonight you’re going full beach-day with dinner on the dock at Lido Bayside Grill. Your order? Passionfruit ceviche with plantain chips and a cold water lobster roll with lemon mayo. Bliss.
