Hot Property

The St. Regis is bringing its luxe touch to South Beach

There’s no shortage of chic hotels in Miami Beach, but the soon-to-open St. Regis in Bal Harbour opening on January 19 has what is arguably the city’s most fashionable address: oceanfront on Collins Avenue, directly across from the Shops at Bal Harbour, a shopping mecca filled with Saks, Lanvin, Chanel, Celine, Prada. The Yabu Pushelberg -designed property winks at Miami’s Rat Pack heyday, with oversized raw rock crystal chandeliers in the entryway and citrine-colored walls in the Remedè Spa. But, at its core, the experience is all about modern, relaxed luxury, with extra-large rooms (all with terraces and ocean views) and poolside cabanas that are more like mini-apartments than a quick place to cool
down. And, after a day of swimming, sunning, or shopping, there’s the restaurant helmed by Jean-Georges Vongerichten — an ideal hotspot for a leisurely dinner (even if you’re staying farther down in South Beach) or small plates and cocktails with friends.
