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.

During our stay the staff was incredibly attentive. Concierge person Thomas took care of all of our dinner reservations as well as babysitting to cover for dinner. Felipe at the pool made sure we were taken care of, he got us a fan for the cabana for our 5 month baby. Only serious concern is the hotel taxing the 20% service charge which we… Read more

Only serious concern is the hotel taxing the 20% service charge which we expressed concern on and received no update or explanation for. Very disappointed. Read less

I travel a lot. And I mean a lot! A third of a year at least. This has to be the best hotel I have stayed in. From the elegant and sophisticated surroundings. The incredibly friendly staff. An amazing welcome. The food is amazing. Indeed my daughters say they had their best vegan meal ever in the predominantly steak restaurant. Brilliant spas and bars. But again the staff. Since when did the car jockeys give you a hug when you left? Nothing to change. Can’t wait to return or check out the South American sister hotel. Thank you. Read less

Was really expecting something amazing after all the publicity when opened a few years ago. Foyer cold, impersonal and unfriendly. The room was outstanding with excellent views. The pool not suited for a 5 star hotel. Very few loungers so could not lie at the pool. Eventually found one..... But no umbrella. Restaurants expensive but were quite… Read more

Andra in the Miami Resort could make me cry how incredible she’s treated my mom and I coming to faena! We were on the beach and she sent us the most delicious fruit bowl making it so personable and unforgettable! We love you Faena!!! Read less
