Delano Hotel Glamorous and Seductive
For years South Beach has been most visited and popular destination for travelers from all over the world. Today it is considered wealthiest and most prosperous commercial area of town, offers fine dining, entertainment with hundreds of nightclubs and superb accommodations
One of my favorite places to stay and to visit in Miami is Delano Hotel. It has been probably one of the very first hotels which actually changed South Beach forever. It spoke to me the minute I entered its glamorous, subtle and full of seduction lobby. White sheer curtains blowing in the wind gently say hello as you enter theatrical like public areas, super sleek and modern full of elegance and stylish details. Hotel designed by Philippe Starck has been the elite favorite spot since day it opened its doors to the public.
Delano Hotel offers various styles of suites and accommodations that fits every traveler needs or budget. You can enjoy spectacular tower suites with soaring Ocean view and whimsical style of Philippe Starck (starting at around 400 USD per night) to pool side bungalows located along the main hotel pool ( around 2,300 USD per night) or private apartment or the Penthouse ( around 4,000 USD per night).
And no matter wich suite you choose you will be able to soothe your senese, in evey one of them. Enjoy luxurious and harmonius spaces, crisp white furniture, sofás and head boards, sexy sheere curtians, sparkle of mirrors and candle lights, and a touch of nature perfectly tide into Delanos uniue style. In one simple word you you will experince luxury at its best and comfort beyond imaginable.
Hotel`s signature Italian restaurant Bianca offers Italian style cuisine prepared from farm-to-table organic ingredients. It has all your favorites such as signature fresh made pastas with truffles and cream (my favorite dish) grilled seafood, fantastic classic salads. Great place to enjoy lunch or elegant dinner. For more casual dining in a “family Style “or commute style way visit
UMI Sushi and Sake Bar which sits right in the middle of the Delano’s lobby, Japanese menu includes signature rolls like the hotel’s namesake FDR, tuna, salmon, and yellowtail, Baked Crab Hand Roll or poached Maine Lobster. Its a great place for a fun dinign experience and few Sake cocktails.
Delano Hotel sexy FDR club Bar is a great place to enjoy night-club atmosphere with signature cocktail ad DJ`s featuring all the latest must trends in a luxurious atmosphere. It’s South Beach most trendy destination, for a perfect night-out and great place to meet new friends.
Of course the best thing for me at the hotel is its iconic outdoor pool. I just love the way it it framed by Bungalow on one side and Beach Club Cabañas on the other. It offers luxury in a modern tropical setting. You can either relax on the lounge chairs or reserve one of the cabanas for more sophisticated experience to enjoy cocktails, fine champagne and selection of snacks. Pool is located just few steps away from the beach, so you have a choice of either play by the pool or swim in the Ocean and give yourself this special feet in the sand experience of South Beach.
I have to say that this place has this unique style and charm to it. And yes you can say it’s just another luxury hotel but in fact it is not. It has this special aura and identity that some hotels just don’t offer. It is more than that a hotel visits it is a life style.
