Faena Hotel Miami Beach

Miami Beach, Miami

The hotel

Daring to be different, yet featuring enough deco-detailing to make the grade in Miami, this five star retreat may be all cool white and slick lines on the outside, but inside it’s filled with sumptuous velvety reds, glitzy golds, and warm woods and leather: nowhere more so than in its very own theatre, an opulent cabaret venue with a nod to the grand old opera houses of Europe’s capitals. The dining’s just as decadent, ranging from the modern Asian creations of master chef Paul Qui, in the ocean view Pao restaurant, to the live-fire Argentine cooking of renowned South American chef Francis Mallman, at Los Fuegos. They’ve even thrown in a sand-skirting location on Miami Beach, a luxury spa with Amazon-sourced products, and an oceanfront pool and sunbathing deck.

I did not stay at the hotel but based on a recommendation I visited the outdoor bar and had a Faena Spritz. It is delicious and the bar is beautifully decorated with shells. The staff are very friendly too.

The rooms make you forget your in Miami, the decor is over the top and all of the amenities on property are really above and beyond. My favorite oasis to stay at when I visit Miami. A MUST! Read less

My boyfriend and stumbled upon this place by accident and it turned out the be the best accident we’ve had! Erica And Denys who were our bartenders are the main reason our experience was so wonderful! They made us feel AT HOME. So comfortable and easy. From conversations to their service it was PHENOMENAL! We go out plenty as we are from Miami. Countless bars and restaurants and we must admit this was the first time in a very long time that we had this sort of feeling with our experience. Thanks to them we will definitely come back and are eager to stay for a few nights at the hotel for a staycation! They were wonderful and an asset to this beautiful property. Thank you both for a wonderful time! We will be back! Read less

I spent three nights at the Faena. Our room was supposed to be ready at 4, it wasn’t ready til 5. No big deal. We arrive to our suite, one of the lights in the bathroom is literally hanging by a wire, dangling, in the bathroom. There are hairs on the bed. There is no conditioner.

I spent three nights at the Faena. Our room was supposed to be ready at 4, it wasn’t ready til 5. No big deal. We arrive to our suite, one of the lights in the bathroom is literally hanging by a wire, dangling, in the bathroom. There are hairs on the bed. There is no conditioner. We called asking for conditioner and for toothbrushes, they would never arrive, I would have to call 2 more times to get them delivered to our room. We had to ask them for toilet paper twice. Our bags weren’t in our room when we arrived to our room. And to top it off, they served my girlfriend, who has a severe nut allergy(SEVERE nut allergy), nuts on her salad. After we had already told them about how serious her nut allergy. I have literally never seen that happen in all our years dating. Luxury hotels are supposed to provide that, luxury. The faena is understaffed, disorganized and extremely overrated. One positive thing were the bell staff at the front door, very pleasant. Jovan in particular was very helpful. If you’re planning on a Miami stay in the future i recommend the Edition which delivers a superior product. Plus their pool and their overall vibe are superior as well. I’ve stayed in a few of their locations including Miami and they never disappoint. Read less

I had the joy of staying at Faena this November for my 30th birthday, I was not expecting the shear glamour class and absolute 100% production quality of Faena as both a piece of architecture, a hospitality experience, and an overall delight for the eyes nose and ears. More importantly, the Staff at Faena made me feel so special and so welcome with every single interaction we had. I am truly in awe of the experience I had with Faena, and absolutely will be staying here again. Immediately upon arriving at Faena, the knowledgeable and welcoming staff at the door -- Kelvin, Tyson and Nixon, provided us a tour of the facilities as well as allowing us to store bags well before check-in. They gave us a history on the art in the hotel, as well as some great tips on where to stay. My guest and I spent a few hours prior to check in at the spa. There, Alma, Douglas and Maria provided an amazing experience: helping us get ourselves a change of clothes and settle into the spa until our room was ready. I HIGHLY recommend seeing Charles for a Thai Massage. He is an incredibly skilled massage therapist, and the 80min session with Charles was the best massage I ever had. The room is amazing--sweeping ocean views and relaxing sounds and scents. Charles was very attentive in providing a deeply relaxing and therapudic massage. 10/10 would absolutely go again. Lastly, for dinner we ate at Pao. Pao was the GREATEST MEAL OF MY LIFE. We ordered the Beef Tartare Larb, a sort of Uni corn chowder, and Briased Ribs with Japanese sweet potatoes. Literally the greatest flavors of my life. Not to mention that it is the most gorgeous lounge space for a meal. Sebastián, our server, made the night truly special Read less
