The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach

A rebirth for a Miami Beach landmark
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. And now, after a $90 million, property-wide renovation that completed in January 2020, it will do so with even more style.

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 that have been reinvigorated by famed designer Cristian Rubio feature warm interiors, views of the ocean and luxury touches like marble baths and feather-topped beds. The refreshed Ritz-Carlton spa is still the centerpiece of the resort.

The luxurious Miami hotel also features the only VIP Club Level Lounge in South Beach, an updated space with bespoke experiences, local cuisine and much more.
