Whatever your occasion, what could be more memorable than luxury travel in the sunshine state of Florida? In particular, Miami will tick all the boxes and with over fifteen million visitors to Miami in 2015 it’s just the place for an unforgettable vacation. It’s about the whole package: the car, the accommodation and what you choose to do for fun and relaxation. Find yourself somewhere luxurious to stay and don’t forget to visit South Beach, allegedly the second sexiest beach in the world.
The Wonders of Miami
With over fourteen and a half million drivers in Florida, there’s a lot of other road users to be aware of and consider. Know where you’re going, don’t drive for too long and if you are older consider whether your hearing or vision will affect your safe driving. Miami, known as the “Magic City”, is located in Southeast Florida and is home to the Miami Dolphins and South Beach. If you want to experience luxury on the ocean then consider renting a speedboat or charter a luxury yacht. This will allow you to head North to view the stunning Miami skyline or head toward Key Biscayne and spend a day at Biscayne Bay. Other sights include Millionaire’s Row or even the Bahamas in one day.
Fine dining and cocktails
There are endless restaurants to choose from but if you fancy experiencing the delights of an award winning chef José Andrés, head to The Bazaar located in the SLS Hotel on South Beach. The Latin inspired food is fused with Andrés’ Spanish heritage and boasts both indoor and outdoor spaces. La Mar at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel offers Peruvian cuisine and is a perfect choice for stunning views of the bay, speciality cocktails and for a romantic dinner at the top end of fine dining. If perhaps you want a chain restaurant, but one that is renowned for outstanding food and service, Nobu Miami is situated in the Shore Club and offers world class Japanese food and is a hot Miami nightspot where you could sup cocktails once dinner is finished.
Dance into the early hours
If you’re a member, then Soho Beach House is must whilst in Miami, but the Cecconi’s restaurant which is part of it, is open to non-members. If dance music is your thing, then the club Story is host to many famous DJs and has sixty exclusive VIP tables. With a recent ten million dollar renovation and supposedly one of the best places in Miami to spot a celebrity, Liv on Miami Beach is a high end club offering a VIP entrance and valet service. If you’re looking for a poolside club with indoor space too, then Hyde Beach is located at the prestigious SLS Hotel and offers unforgettable poor parties.
Where to lay your head
When deciding where to stay live like a local and stay in a luxury villa or a condo on the waterfront or with a pool. Alternatively stay in a one or two bedroom residence in a hotel overlooking the ocean where you can benefit from your own large space but also from the hotel’s facilities. You can arrange daily, weekly or even monthly rents so you could even stay in a few places.
Florida is a perfect place to visit and it goes hand in hand with luxurious travel. If you’re going to do it properly it’s worth investing in the best rental car, luxury accommodation and activities that are experienced at the highest standard. Choose exactly what you want to do and then find the best options. You can’t do at that and not hire a speedboat or charter a yacht, surely a visit to the Bahamas is an essential part of your trip?
