Bal Harbour is the place to shop in Miami, and staying at St. Regis Bal Harbour places you within striking distance of the flagship boutiques of Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Chanel to name a few. The resort’s interior provides a sense of heightened luxury at every turn, a true reflection of the upmarket area in which it is located. The lobby and lounge areas succeed in feeling big and spacious yet retain a sense of intimacy.
Guests can take advantage of the Remède Spa and take in beautiful Atlantic Ocean views from either of the two large outdoor pools. They can also rent beach villas, which come with a butler, bathroom, wet bar and an indoor lounge. There are also several accomplished dining options including Atlantikós, a whitewashed Mediterranean eatery serving mainly Greek food and The Grill at St. Regis, which serves typical American fare in a relaxed setting.
Top suite: Presidential Suite
Located on the 24th floor, the hotel’s Presidential Suite boasts some of the best sea views in Miami. A private elevator opens up to reveal an expansive living area and presents the sea views through floor-to-ceiling windows. A gallery-style chef’s kitchen, a butler’s pantry and a separate service entrance makes this the perfect suite for entertainment. Guests can dine at the eight-person table before watching the sunset on the 1,200-square-foot wraparound balcony. The suite has two king bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms laden with fine marble. Those staying in The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort’s Presidential Suite are also offered complimentary use of the Presidential cabana.
