It’s summertime in the northern hemisphere and this could only mean one thing for us here at RoomSuggestion: hotel rooms with ocean views. Earlier this week we checked out the Mandarin Oriental Miami and we are returning to Miami today with St Regis Bal Harbour Resort. After all summer means being beside the seaside, right? And the seaside doesn’t get any better than Miami.
Surrounded by lush tropical gardens and silky beaches, in one of the most distinguished neighborhoods in South Florida, South Florida's glamour and fashion capital, Bal Harbour and the surrounding Miami area provide an escape like no other, with the Atlantic Ocean at your doorstep.
For those seeking the ultimate in ocean views and luxury, the exclusive 2,800 square foot Presidential Suite located on the resort’s 24th floor and accessible via private elevator is the suite to experience. Imagine waking up with the gentle Atlantic breeze through your floor to ceiling windows and the cerulean blue waters of the ocean sparkling outside your window.
Then there are chic living interiors complete with a media room, two bedrooms offering spectacular views, a stunning bathroom, gourmet kitchen and St. Regis Butler service and piece de resistance: a private terrace of your own for languorous days under the Miami sun and breathtaking views of the Miami coastline. It sure doesn’t get better than this.
Grand views are not the only asset St Regis Bal Harbour has on offer though. For shopaholic travellers, the celebrated Bal Harbour Shops right across the resort while for those keen to experience Miami life, only a mere minutes is the whirlwind energy of South Beach, Miami.
Here you can experience signature experiences from Bal Harbour 24-Karat Designer Facial where guests enjoy a facial treatment that begins with a copper-enriched peel and ends with a bejeweled sprinkling of gold oil leaving one instantly refreshed, to Bal Harbour Body Wrap, a restorative wrap that employs Hungarian moor mud and nourishing sea salts to achieve softer skin.
And of course if one is after relaxation rather than sightseeing and shop hopping, the Remède Spa is just the place to rejuvenate your senses. With 11 spacious treatment rooms, a Vichy rain shower room, Finnish saunas, aromatic steam rooms and a full service salon, men’s and women’s lounges and a state of the art St. Regis Athletic Club with ocean views as well as private spa cabanas for a serene outdoor spa experience, Remède Spa delivers the most exclusive and fashionable treatments in South Florida.
There are far more senses that St. Regis Bal Harbour appeals to though, like delighting your tastebuds with the delicious tastes of J&G Grill and indulging in poolside cocktails in the evening perched above the hotel pool with magnificent views.
A contemporary bar and grill set in a convivial and buzzy atmosphere, J&G Grill’s curated menu features such innovative Jean-Georges creations as Black Truffle Pizza with Fontina Cheese or Tuna Tartare with Avocado, Radish, and Soy Ginger Dressing as starters, and entrées ranging from our Simply Cooked section of simply prepared quality meats and fish to uniquely composed dishes such as Glazed Short Ribs with Apple-Jalapeno Puree and Rosemary Crumbs. There are also refined tasting menus, and an extensive wine selection, handcrafted specialty cocktails and house-made sodas.
With stunning views, luxury amenities and the exclusive surroundings, St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort is not a place you’re likely to want to leave in a hurry. And if you want to spend more time here, fear not, as you may also consider ownership at the St. Regis Bal Harbour Residences. Experience a lifestyle like no other on Florida's Gold Coast.
