Nautilus - A SIXTY Hotel

Miami Beach, Miami

The hotel

Originally designed in the 1950s by famed architect, Morris Lapidus, the Nautilus is something of a South Beach gem! Stretching from Collins Avenue to the beach, guests enjoy exclusive access to their own private stretch of sand! And, as if that wasn’t enticing enough, there’s also a huge outdoor salt-water pool complete with cabanas, poolside lounge and an underwater sound system should you feel like a spot of aqua jive! In need of some pampering? No problem. Head to the Spa Lounge, there’s a wonderful menu of treatments to choose from, including the Coco Colada manicure and The Iridescent facial. Eating and drinking at the Nautilus is also a treat. The Lobby Bar features a sunken bar and the restored ‘staircase to nowhere’. For gourmet delights, head to the Driftwood Room, home to celebrity chef Alex Guarnaschelli who combines her expertise in the cuisine of Southern France with fresh Floridian ingredients. There’s plenty of outdoor seating so reserve a table and enjoy a night lingering over great dishes under a Miami night sky.

The server vasil was phenomenal when it came down to his customer service, and the actual fact that he made it feel as though we were family. Amazing time at an amazing restaurant, the service couldn’t be better. He deserves a raise!!!!

My sister and I went for a quick girls' weekend getaway and it was exactly what we needed. Everything was perfect -- the room, the pool, the beach, the service, the drinks (even the paper straws somehow magically retained their form).

My sister and I went for a quick girls' weekend getaway and it was exactly what we needed. Everything was perfect -- the room, the pool, the beach, the service, the drinks (even the paper straws somehow magically retained their form). The food was good (not life changing, but good, and we ate at nearby restaurants every night anyway). The hotel is in the center of south beach action, and otherwise, everything is an uber away. We had amazing dinners in the neighborhood every night, and every day we lounged by the pool and the beach. We kept saying that some hotels are fake nice, but this hotel is "nice nice." Everything was simply excellent. Read less

Stayed for 3 nights. Great views of the beach from the room. V friendly staff. Beach is short walk out the back of the hotel so didnt use the pool area but looked busy everyday. Nice mix of guests. Beach was perfect and well organised with loungers. $22 for an umbrella is extra though and a little expensive. Breakfast is highly recommended.… Read more

Its about a 15 min walk from hotel to Ocean Drive and plenty little restaurants around hotel to eat lunch and dinner in. Great hotel for visiting South Beach! Read less
