The Palms Hotel & Spa
With its lush gardens, oceanfront pool, and full-service Aveda spa, The Palms Hotel & Spa Miami enjoys esteemed status on chic South Beach. The 501 rooms and suites—with coral, sand, and turquoise tones—offer ocean or city views from floor-to-ceiling windows, and spa-inspired baths with Rain Shower Heads. In keeping with the tropical setting, the Tiki Bar and private Tiki cabanas (with Wi-Fi) overlook the hotel’s secluded beach. The on-site restaurant, Essensia, specializes in natural gourmet fare, featuring seasonal dishes like macadamia-crusted grouper, and chef Julie Frans hand-selects herbs from the organic garden installed beside the Tiki Bar. Adjacent Essensia Lounge is known for its specialty cocktails, including the Forever Young Martini, concocted with VeeV Açai, fresh lemon, and blueberries.
