As part of a recent research trip to the USA, I spent 2 whirlwind days in Miami – one of the most exciting, vibrant and stylish US cities I've been to. Miami could definitely be classed as a very ‘now’ destination, but it is also becoming known as a global leader in luxury travel – hotels and villas here are setting the standard not only in terms of a quality, high-end experience, but in terms of service, style and innovation.
Miami as a city offers style, sophistication, variety and a unique combination of beach living, North American living standards and a large dose of Latin excitement. From fabulous shopping opportunities on Lincoln, to ‘stylish lounging’ by the pool in your beach-front hotel or private villa. One of the things I love about Miami is that it really has something to offer everyone, and could never be described as either bland or boring!
There are of course other destinations that are accessible by great transport links, or that have a great, year-round climate, but Miami just adds to that a certain kind of style (I loved the art deco, candy-colour style) and atmosphere (that certain kind of Latin rhythm), and it turns a stay into a far more interesting experience. I was also delighted to discover that Miami is one of the world’s most up and coming ‘foodie’ destinations and I was spoilt for choice with the incredible variety of restaurants, bars and cafes – many offering really innovative and exciting menus, all with that certain Miami style.
Another thing to impress me were the stunning hotels and the sheer variety and quality of the luxury Villas that I visited – from Spanish-style spacious mansions, to opulent, minimalist luxury homes with enviable art collections. There are amazing properties to suit every budget, style and size of group. The vast majority have waterfront positions with great views, - the only way to experience all that Miami has to offer.
