This luxury Miami Beach hotel has a unique character, in no small part due to the creative interior design by Catherine Martin and her husband, Baz Luhrmann, the director of such visual delights as Romeo & Juliet and The Great Gatsby. Plush guestrooms and decadent suites all enjoy an Art Deco theme with colourful flourishes and undeniable style. The nods to early 20th century decor continue throughout the property, as does the creative flair, notable in everything from jaw-dropping chandeliers to columns adorned with seashells. Original works of art by none other than Damien Hurst are also a feature throughout.
Eating here is a no less enjoyable and exciting experience, with Poa by Paul Qui offering modern Asian cuisine with sophisticated, international influences. Then there's contemporary Argentine fare, complete with traditional live-fire open kitchen and masterful culinary touches, at Los Fuegos by Francis Mallmann. At the Living Room and Saxony Bar guest can enjoy sensational cocktail menus in glamorous surrounds.
There's no shortage of entertainment either, with The Faena boasting it's very own theatre! At this two-level, gilded theatre you can enjoy and atmosphere of golden age Hollywood, take in a live show or one of the hotel's own acclaimed cabaret performances.
And if all that gets a bit much, there's plenty of ways to relax. Hit the beach - which is literally on your doorstep - for a spot of people watching and sun worshipping. Or head to the Tierra Santa Spa, a South American-inspired oasis of rejuvenation on the oceanfront.
169 rooms and suites, from attractive Skyline Rooms to the incredible four-bedroom Faena Suite.
