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.

Traveled with 7 people in 4 rooms for a conference. Hotel staff was friend and exceptionally helpful during the entire stay. There were some initial billing issues. As these were addressed Giorgio the manager (who is great!) personally spoke to us, and even provided a cabana for our use. The Arlo is a great spot to stay if visiting Miami Beach!

Staying here is a pleasure, the hotel facilities, cleanliness and decor are all first rate. We especially enjoy the service on the beach and it wouldn’t be the same without Ronaldo and Jean. They are really amazing. Overall fantastic vacation. Happy birthday Mira.
