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 pool staff was amazing, they made my stay so fun and relaxing. The environment was just perfect. Mira set us up and she was great, our server Tatiana assisted us with everything we needed, and the manager Maria kept checking on us to see if everything was good. No words to describe our stay but just amazing. Thank you!

Was here with my boys for a weekend. Malia, Mirka and the entire pool team are awesome. Made our Saturday. I love places that are cool and don’t make you feel like you’re an inconvenience / they’re fool cool for school. This review requires like 200 characters but I feel like I got the point across. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Nautilus staff made on vacation! Leo and Malia were especially helpful and attentive. We headed to the beach late in the afternoon and Leo scoped out the best spot and checked on us when chairs opened up closer to the shore. Malia’s poolside service was great as well! Will be looking for both them today!
