The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach

Miami Beach's nautical-themed landmark
Editor's Note: The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach is closed for a property-wide renovation. The hotel will reopen in January 2020. 

Paying tribute to the vibrant culture and colorful history of Miami with sophisticated ease, The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach will be your gracious host to one of the most exotic places in America.

This landmark property, originally designed by legendary Miami architect Morris Lapidus, boasts an ideal location — at the foot of South Beach’s Lincoln Road Mall on the Atlantic Ocean.

Rooms feature nautical hues, views of the ocean and luxury touches like marble baths and feather-topped beds. The 16,000-square-foot Ritz-Carlton spa is the centerpiece of the resort.

The luxurious Miami hotel also features the only VIP Club Level Lounge in South Beach, newly enhanced with rustic interior finishes inspired by mid-century modern design.
