When it comes to posh, design-forward hotels in Miami, South Beach isn’t the only game in town. At the Viceroy Miami, not only can you indulge in pampering spa treatments, cutting-edge cuisine, and unforgettable nightlife, you’ll also encounter one of the most upscale scenes in town. And once you’ve seen Florida’s largest infinity pool and its welcoming sun deck and cafe, you won’t miss the beach at all. So take your sweetheart by the hand and indulge in a romantic getaway at this glimmering oasis of luxury in Brickell, where the fun doesn’t end until you want it to.
Breeze through the lobby’s trendy hodgepodge of art deco designs and island-cool colors like the VIPs you are. Once you’ve checked in, head up to your ultramodern, Asian-accented suite and relax until dinner. That won’t be hard to do, thanks to the plush furnishings, soft down comforters and pillows, and marble bathrooms stocked with complimentary Neil George bath and beauty products. While you’re waiting for your partner in crime to get ready, stretch out on your vast four-poster bed, take a look out your floor-to-ceilling window, and drink in the panoramic view.
Once you’re looking and feeling fabulous, head to the 15th and Vine Communal Terrace for dinner, where cool air kissing the back of your neck and whispering through the trees acts as an appetizer to an evening of delicious, inventive cuisine. Chat with some other couples around the communal table while your sweet, friendly projito–a creative take on the mojito that adds Prosecco–sparkles on the back of your tongue with its refreshing blend of mint and lime.
The portions are fun-sized, so don’t be afraid to try a few different things. The Hawaiian-style ahi poke feels especially light and fluffy with the savory-sweet sesame crackers it’s served with. The Mediterranean Quinoa salad will keep you cool on a warm night, with salty Kalamata olives and feta cheese balanced by fresh cucumbers and cherry tomatoes. As you’re finishing dinner, take a look over at the unbelievable 300-foot Icon swimming pool and see if your date is game for a little race — in the morning, of course.
The action heats up as you take the elevator to the fiftieth floor to the aptly-named FIFTY Ultra Lounge, one of Miami’s top rooftop bars. You’ll both feel like you’re on top of the world as you take a table for two and order a bottle of champagne. This is a great spot to do some people watching, and there’s every chance you’ll see a celebrity. If you don’t, though, it hardly matters, since you’re living like one already at this posh hotel in the heart of the city. Clink glasses and savor this moment, as the very best of Miami unfolds all around you.
