Official star rating:
The Standard Miami Beach sizzles like a sexy beach party. The resort’s mid-century design is sprinkled with endearing kitsch touches and a winning focus on the al fresco, including the city’s hippest open-air hydrotherapy playground. It comes with a vast waterfront infinity pool, an icy arctic plunge, high-pressure hoses and bayside soaking tubs, where the local body-beautifuls spend their downtime.
The mood sashays from whimsical – there’s a labyrinthine zen garden with a solar circle for meditation – to risque – those using the outdoor mud lounge tend to discard clothing to smear its healing red, ochre and green clays all over. It’s daring, but also deadly serious about wellness.
Top-notch instructors guide guests through an inventive fitness programme from morning yoga on the dock to state-of-the-art Peloton spin classes, while the Lido Bayside Grill serves some of the best stealth-health dishes you’ll ever eat including incredible vegan burgers.
The hotel is on Belle Isle, part of the Venetian Island chain in the Biscayne Bay. Essentially one affluent residential neighbourhood with a pretty community park at its heart, it’s always busy with joggers and dog walkers.
A ten-minute stroll across the Venetian Causeway bridge leads to Sunset Harbour’s trendy restaurants, boutiques and bars, while it’s a 15-minute cab ride to South Beach and Downtown.
