Fontainebleau Miami Beach boasts an oceanfront oasis that features a central pool designed to resemble the hotel designer Morris Lapidus’ signature bow-tie design. You’ll also find a shallow children’s pool with slide, several small hot tubs, a circular-shaped pool with a luxurious cabana in the center, and many other amenities to enhance your fun in the sun. As soon as you check in at the pool, you’ll see a stand where you can pick up towels and arrange for chair-set up, plus a giant urn of watermelon-infused water to keep you hydrated and a selection of local magazines like Ocean Drive to read in your beach chair. If you get hungry, you can order light bites like quesadillas or have fresh fruit delivered to your chair. If you prefer tableside service, you can stroll a few feet to La Côte, which serves large salads and Mediterranean-inspired fare like mussels, grilled branzino and Greek meze plates. Glow Bar, meanwhile, offers a selection of Daiquiris and other cocktail favorites next to the turquoise waters. And if you’ve forgotten anything pool or beach related, whether it’s sunscreen, your Pucci beach bag, a sparkly lamé bikini or your favorite Ray Bans, the Aquamarine store on the lower level of the Château building is just a five-minute walk from the pool. You’ll find everything you might have forgotten at the Forbes Travel Guide Recommened hotel, and perhaps some tempting items you never knew you needed.
