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.

From the time you walk in and the time you leave, you will be impressed over and over. The food, the customer service, I just can't find any negative things to write about this property. Must go, even if you can't stay there make a reservation for one of their many restaurants.

The hotel is absolutely stunning, and if you are an art lover, you would appreciate their eye for detail on the aesthetics of the whole hotel and its facilities. We were greeted by Junior who helped us with our bags, served us welcome drinks prior to check in & gave us multiple great recommendations. He was so friendly and called out to us by name everytime he saw us; true blue hospitality!! Sebastian checked us in and he was also super friendly and efficient. We were lucky to get our room by noon, which is earlier than usual, so we appreciated the quick check in. The room is beautifully appointed, very big for rooms in Miami, and had a wonderful bathroom. I loved the Japanese toilet & the shower had amazing water pressure. Not forgetting their beautiful bath amenities which smelled so good. It also had a walk in wardrobe! We enjoyed lunch at El Fuego, which was superb - everything tasted great, every server was attentive and friendly. Room service also didn't disappoint- we had the orange olive oil pancakes & breakfast burrito for in-room breakfast - it was delish. The surrounding area is also great to walk; across the street, ladies would love the Faena Bazaar for great shopping. The beach is great and there are private cabanas and umbrellas available for rent (though I wish this was complimentary for in house guests instead of chargeable, since room rates are quite high as it is). You must not miss out on the WetSpa as well. The beautiful hammam is super relaxing, and there are multiple steam rooms, as well as an ice chamber. The hotel also has plenty of live entertainment, from live bands to their own show at the Faena Theatre. I'll definitely be back if I'm ever in Miami! Read less

Just spent 4 nights at the Faena, which was an experience indeed. Utterly beautiful decor throughout and we stayed in a premier ocean view room, which was appointed wonderfully. I have nothing negative to say but for some reason it just wasn't perfect for me. Not sure if it was the really expensive prices, I'm not a very rich man but we ended spending near to a $1,000 a day for food and drink. Not sure if it was because on a few occasions thr waiters got the cheque wrong, on one occasion he was $240 out, which meant I had to be on my game. Or maybe it was that I didn't quite fit in with the crowd, not sure. I'm glad I stayed, for the experience, but equally not sure I'll return. Read less

This was my first time staying at the Faena Hotel. From check in to check out, everything was impeccable. The check in process was smooth, the staff was extremely friendly, the rooms were very clean and well designed and the property has great amenities. The restaurants on site were fantastic, good quality food. As a hotel designer myself, I would say the property is designed very well. I travel to Miami 3-4 times a year, and this will be my go to hotel from now on. Read less
