Your beachside escape to nature in Miami
425 Rooms / 168 Suites
Developed with the idea that those who travel the world also care about its wellbeing, 1 Hotel South Beach brings together eco-conscious practices, elegant design and an unrivaled level of service. Occupying an entire city block on famed Collins Avenue, 1 Hotel South Beach sits on a plot of pristine beachfront overlooking the expansive Atlantic Ocean and offers views of Biscayne Bay and downtown Miami’s skyline. But an enviable location is far from the only glowing quality of this exquisite property.
The South Beach hotel’s interior design brings the outside in, with nature as its inspiration. From the moment you step into the building, you’re greeted by signs of nature, be it in the form of driftwood furnishings, the sounds of the ocean and living natural materials.
The Meyer Davis design of the hotel, restaurant and fitness center, takes inspiration from the beach and surfers, incorporating reclaimed woods, natural poured and polished concrete floors and locally sourced materials like coral stone.
Rooms and public spaces are accented with artisan furnishings; bathrooms feature reclaimed Calcutta marble and hand-blown glass pendants.
Brazilian architect and interior designer Debora Aguiar leads the spa and residential design, working in Napa-style, paned walk-in showers and rustic copper fixtures. While nature-inspired design firm Plant the Future creates memorable green moments throughout the luxury hotel (living green walls on 1 Hotel’s façade, a grotto garden in the lobby).
1 Hotel South Beach’s 425 Mother Nature-approved guest rooms include 425 rooms, 168 suites and one Oceanfront Presidential Suite. Plush beds have custom hemp-blend mattresses swathed in 100 percent organic cotton sheets. Towels, robes and linens are made of all-natural cotton-knit.
Glass terrariums bedeck every room, and triple clear water filters in all taps, sinks and showers. Guests can even use 1 Hotel’s app, “Field Guide,” to control all aspects of the room, from temperature to the television.
The Studio Suite boasts more than 700 square feet of splendor that comes in the form of a full kitchen and washer/dryers in unit. Spring for the Oceanfront Presidential Suite and come home to a seven-room retreat that spans 3,600 square feet of indoor/outdoor space, complete with a balcony, pool table and state-of-the-art media room.
The Miami Beach hotel provides four outdoor swimming pools, including two oceanside and one that is SoBe’s largest rooftop pool and lounge, with more than 70,000 square feet of deck space. Sun, swim and sleep at one of the 57 cabanas and daybeds while partaking in full service at the pool.
As a guest, you’ll also gain access to the 18,000-square-foot fitness and wellness center. The Spartan Gym is open 24/7, offering a range of classes (rooftop yoga) and an impressive roster of equipment (Peloton bicycles).
The hotel is home to the very first Bamford Haybarn Spa in the U.S. The 4,500-square-foot spa contains 12 treatment rooms and three mani-pedi stations. There’s also the Woodland Room, a relaxation area with a contemplation fountain. More extensive pampering, including couples treatments, will be available in the Willow Rooms, two expansive, suite-style spaces. At the spa, melt stress with nature-inspired treatments and elixirs that contain real fruit, botanicals, oils and other earthly elements.
The firsts continue: Here, guests will also find the country’s inaugural Spartan Gym, a 14,000-square-foot behemoth of fitness. The gym's holistic approach, targeting the core areas of athleticism, strength, endurance and mind, ensures impressive results. For an extra boost, the gym’s certified Spartan trainers utilize top-of-the-line equipment in private and group sessions to help maximize workouts.
After relaxing in the spa or hitting the gym, explore the surrounding area with the hotel’s fleet of Tesla premium electric vehicles, which are available for complimentary rides within a three-mile radius.
As for the kids, the young travel set has its own Seedlings day camp. 1 Hotel is also a prime location for gatherings, with more than 100,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting and event space, including an oceanfront terrace with sweeping views.
At 1 Hotel South Beach, dining is “farm-stand fresh, Florida local,” with lots of culinary options. James Beard Award-winning chef Tom Colicchio is behind the hotel’s tour de dining force: the signature Beachcraft; the lobby lounge bar Tom on Collins; a poolside restaurant, The Sandbox; and in-room meal service.
Additional onsite dining includes the Nativ Made grab-and-go concept and STK by the One Group. Most recently, 1 Hotel opened its newest restaurant experience, Watr at The 1 Rooftop, a place specializing in sushi and poke paired with handcrafted cocktails. Think Polynesia meets Japan with a dedicated cocktail-pairing connoisseur onsite to make sure everything works well together.
