Sun, sand, and the sea — South Beach has all the natural beauty one could possibly want in a holiday location.
But there are times the beach just isn’t doable, or it’s too busy, or someone might prefer the amenities available poolside — food, drinks, privacy and a little more elbow room. Thankfully South Beach’s hotels are home to some of the country’s best pools. Here are three of the top spots — be sure to book with Magellan Luxury Hotels to get the best rates and exclusive perks at these four-and five-star hotels.
Hyde Beach, the 8,000 square-foot indoor/outdoor space at SLS South Beach created by Philippe Starck, combines incredible cuisine, killer cocktails and a sprawling poolside space that’s serene during the day and bustling at night. Enjoy an al fresco lunch of lighter fare poolside, bottle service, or simply soak up the sun. Once the sun’s gone down, put on your dancing shoes and experience Hyde Beach at night.
It could be said the core principles of The Setai, Miami Beach are luxury, serenity and elegance — to that end, the hotel’s three azure pools fit the bill perfectly. Each of the three pools has its temperature set to satisfy different customers’ preferences — choose from the 75-degree lap pool, the 85-degree center pool or the 95-degree family pool. Flip through a magazine poolside, or grab a drink and a bite from the bar as you lounge.
There’s no property in Greater Miami quite like The Biltmore. With a rich history in the area dating back to the 1920s, it’s truly a hotel like no other. Guests in any of the 275 rooms — including 135 Mediterranean-themed suites — have access to The Biltmore’s 22,000 square-foot, 600,000-gallon pool, the largest hotel pool in the continental United States. Once you’re done splashing around, grab a deck chair and order small plates or a drink from the bar.
