Most Romantic Hotels in Miami
Villa by Barton G.
At first glance, you won’t believe this is a hotel—perhaps because it was the former mansion of designer Gianni Versace. Indeed, you’ll feel as if you’re the only guests staying in one of the unique rooms of this opulent Italian-style villa that seems world’s away from South Beach’s neon-ridden streets, which are just on the other side of the gates. You may not be the only ones in the thousand-tile mosaic swimming pool, which was designed by Versace himself and lined in 24-karat gold. But that’s okay—sharing is caring. From approximately $695 per night.
This intimate beachfront oasis guarantees direct ocean views from every room. In-room spa treatments, round-the-clock dining, and Nespresso machines mean you don’t have to ever leave your romantic chamber. Consider the Amber suite: the cozy penthouse suite boasts spectacular views, as well as a spa bathroom with wraparound windows and a soaking tub for two that overlooks the Atlantic Ocean. From approximately $350 per night.
Nestled on the exclusive island of Brickell Key, the Mandarin Oriental is a cosmopolitan darling that dazzles. Your love-cation will look something like this: whisked away on the glass elevator to the VIP couples spa suite for dual massages, champagne, and strawberries. Then, you’ll melt away on the private beach and let your butler pamper you (as in, the beach butler). When the hunger strikes, stroll along the mile-long walking trail that takes you to La Mar by Gaston Acurio—Peru’s most famous chef. From approximately $319 per night.
This 1920’s Coral Gables haunt is jaw-droppingly dreamy. Hand-painted frescoes on the barrel-vaulted ceilings grace the lobby of this Mediterranean chateau. Couples can peruse the courtyard and lavish gardens, melt the day away in the iconic pool—the largest in the country—or partake in some afternoon tea. There’s also Palme D’or, Miami’s longest-running French restaurant. Miami, je t’aime. From approximately $199 per night.
Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne
For the ultimate romantic getaway, head to the Ritz-Carlton in Key Biscayne, an island off the coast of Miami and away from the hustle and bustle of the city. After a day of watersports or tennis, you can watch the picturesque sunset from the adult pool, golden sands, or your private oceanfront balcony. World-renowned for its first-class service and spa, the Ritz-Carlton is passionate about catering to its guests, offering both twice-daily housekeeping and evening turndowns. From approximately $419 per night.
