This Conveniently Located Oceanfront Hotel In Florida Offers A Chic Beach Getaway

An ideal location, the 140-room hotel sits by the beach and is just a minute's walk to Collins Avenue Shopping Area. Aside from being close to Miami's hottest attractions, SLS South Beach epitomizes chic grandeur — from its exquisite decor to its posh amenities.

SLS South Beach Hotel has taken off since its opening in 2012. Among its accolades, it earned the Tripadvisor 2023 Travelers' Choice Award. One reviewer wrote, "I'm a return guest and love to call SLS South Beach my home away from home! This property is truly luxurious, sleek, and trendy yet comfortable. The rooms are impeccable. The staff go above and beyond." Whether you're sipping champagne by the pool or eating caviar at one of the property's restaurants, you'll be living large at SLS South Beach Hotel.

Inside the hotel's lavish rooms, suites, and penthouses

Renowned designer Philippe Starck is the brains behind the magnificent SLS South Beach Hotel. Inspired by the 18th-century French aristocracy, these lavish accommodations provide guests with the ultimate royal treatment. Yet, effortlessly melded with contemporary design, the rooms and suites are anything but old-fashioned. A predominantly white and silver color scheme, along with special features like ceiling mirrors and chaise lounges give the interiors a clean, polished look.

Beyond its standard rooms and suites, SLS South Beach Hotel boasts the ultra-luxurious Villa Penthouse and Tower Penthouse. None other than rockstar Lenny Kravitz, who founded Kravitz Design in 2003, designed these expansive units. In these spaces, guests can indulge in top-tier comfort and sublime ocean views. The Villa Penthouse features a wraparound terrace while the Tower Penthouse contains a step-out balcony. High-end furnishings and oversized soaking tubs add to these penthouses' opulent appearance. Without deviating from Starck's stylish vision, Kravitz's designs are distinctive. The Tower Penthouse, for example, is adorned with checkerboard floors and an abundance of small art frames.

Exceptional amenities and world-class dining

SLS South Beach Hotel's amenities are exceptional. In addition to its trendy pool deck and lounges, the property features several restaurants offering world-class cuisine and stunning ambiance. Colombian restaurant Elcielo, with chef Juan Manuel Barrientos (aka "Juanma") at the helm, has amassed Michelin stars in its other Miami and Washington, D.C. locations. The restaurant serves inventive plates like crab empanadas, smoked wagyu nigiri, and yucca gnocchi.

Alternatively, guests don't have to travel far to enjoy first-rate sushi at Katsuya, SLS South Beach's Japanese restaurant led by celebrated chef Katsuya Uechi. Classic dishes include crispy rice with spicy tuna tartare and salmon sashimi with caviar. Party animals can live it up at the hotel's Hyde Beach, which hosts poolside events. Then, there's The Shack — Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul's cocktail cabana situated right on the beach.

In a 2016 Architectural Digest piece about Miami's SLS Brickell Hotel & Residences, designer Philippe Starck described his all-encompassing vision for the luxury brand. "When I stay in a hotel, I just want a home where I can feel that everything and everyone, from the architecture to the chef and the waiter, is taking care of me because I am far from my home and I am fragile. I want discreet but real friends," Starck explained. "That is the style of SLS."
