The Ritz-Carlton Bal Harbour, Miami

Bal Harbour's beachfront getaway
A newcomer to Miami, The Ritz-Carlton Bal Harbour opened in 2009 in one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in South Florida, Bal Harbour Village. Despite being the new kid on the block, the chic resort has become popular for its spectacular views of the Atlantic — it’s nestled along the pristine sands of Miami Beach — and posh amenities, such as the lavish spa.

The 18-story Ritz-Carlton offers 95 ocean-view rooms with private entrances, and there are just two accommodations per floor. The two-story lobby’s jatoba columns, marble flooring, 22-foot ceilings, oversized glass windows, leather-upholstered walls plus a carefully curated international art collection (you can’t miss the dark Untitled, Oil on Canvas by Ed Moses, but head out to the Guy Dill Terrace to see the massive Close Hauled Bronze Sculpture as well) create a dramatic entrance into the luxurious stay that awaits inside.
