Wellness and relaxation on Miami Beach
63 Rooms / 11 Suites
Amid the glitz and fray of Miami Beach, you’ll find the serene seaside urban retreat of COMO Metropolitan Miami Beach. But the sense of calm goes beyond the surface of this hotel.
Located in the historic Miami Beach district on Collins Avenue, the 74-room boutique hotel adopts the COMO’s wellness ethos (it’s the first foray into the United States for Singapore-based COMO Hotels and Resorts and its Balinese COMO Shambhala spa). Wellness is infused throughout, from the décor to the cuisine and spa.
The COMO Metropolitan is a contemporary take on Art Deco design. Interiors by Italian designer Paola Navone reference the 1920s and ’30s.
In the lobby, stately columns and intricately designed handrails lead to the bar and restaurant, named for the Traymore (the original name of the hotel), which continues the same modern aesthetic with globe pendant lights and columns hugged by high-backed banquets.
Geometric silhouettes, a playful palette of pastel pistachios and grays, and vintage-style furnishings, contrasted by chrome fixtures and Navone’s own contemporary pieces for Gervasoni, decorate the rooms and suites.
All 74 guest rooms mirror the hotel’s contemporary stylings, complemented by spectacular views. Metropolitan Rooms overlook the city or Intracoastal Waterway, while City Rooms face the city and surrounding area.
All rooms feature sleek amenities and comforts: flat-screen TVs, espresso makers, health-conscious snacks and rainfall showers.
If you’re seeking an elevated experience, request the COMO Suite. This expansive apartment-style suite includes a bedroom, one-and-a-half bathrooms, separate living room and dining areas, a kitchenette and breezy balcony. Two additional bedrooms can connect, should you wish to convert it into a two- or three-bedroom stay.
You’ll want to dress up in your chicest attire for dinner at chef de cuisine Juan Loaisiga’s Traymore restaurant. The proper attire is required when partaking in fresh locally sourced ingredients and Traymore’s old-fashioned service.
The water-to-table menu focuses on fresh, classic Floridian seafood, such as pan-seared halibut, yellowtail snapper and stone crabs. Snag a table on the elegant Traymore terrace to enjoy the balmy beach breeze while you feast.
Poolside, get burgers, fresh brick-oven pizzas and lighter bites. There’s also a healthful COMO Shambhala menu available for breakfast in the restaurant and room service.
At social hour, the Traymore Gin Bar is buzzing. A full menu of wine and champagne, beer and spirits is on hand, but the specialty gin cocktails, such as guest favorites Traymore 1939 (Nolet’s Gin, rosemary syrup, curacao, grapefruit and pomegranate) and Collins Park (Bulldog Gin, St. Germain, lemon, watermelon and basil), are the top tipples. The lobby bar serves 30-plus artisanal gins.
The pièce de résistance of the Miami hotel is COMO Shambhala Urban Escape. Located on the eighth floor, the luxury wellness spa offers a personalized holistic approach with Asian-inspired therapies.
Shambhala means “peace” in Sanskrit, which is what you’ll find at this serene sanctuary. There are four treatment rooms where you can indulge in a well-curated menu of massage therapies (ask for the shiatsu or Thai) and body, beauty and facial care (featuring Dr. Hauschka Skin Care and René Guinot products). Some experiences have also been specially tailored for men (ask for the Tres’ Homme Hydradermie Lift facial).
Follow your service with a stop in the steam room, which is outfitted with an experience shower. Then relax out on the COMO Shambhala Terrace while sipping on a wellness juice and overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway and city.
Or, take a dip in rooftop hydrotherapy pool with Atlantic Ocean views. The spa also features a 24-hour state-of-the-art fitness center and yoga, meditation and personal fitness training.
