Journey to a vibrant city bursting with creativity and diversity. Cuban influences can be felt throughout, especially in Little Havana, where Cuban cigars and sidewalk cafes are the norm. Whether you’re walking along Miami Beach or visiting Ocean Drive, luxury holidays in Miami offer the best way to experience this incredible city.
Imagine azure seas surrounded by white beaches, fringed with palm trees, gorgeous 1930s hotels and a thriving art scene. Miami is home to the world’s greatest collection of art deco buildings and surrounded by stunning nature. With so much on offer, it’s the ideal location for a romantic escape or family fun.
To truly understand Miami’s culture, you’ll need to travel west of the city centre to the neighbourhood of Little Havana. Little Havana is where Miami’s Cuban influences are the strongest. Admire masterpieces at Latin American art galleries, sample Cuban coffee or watch as the locals play dominos in Maximo Gomez Park. As the sun sets, sip cocktails in your hotel and watch the sun set over the city.
A trip to Miami would be incomplete without experiencing the iconic South Beach neighbourhood. Sunbathe on stunning beaches, admire art deco buildings or take a dip in the tepid waters. It’s the perfect place to unwind in the Florida sun and enjoy Miami’s relaxed vibes.
Miami’s subtropical climate makes it a great place to visit year-round. Temperatures remain relatively stable with highs of 32 degrees Celsius in July and lows of 23 degrees Celsius in January. Summer and autumn seasons see a little more rain, but showers don’t tend to last long.
Miami hosts many festivals and events during the year. You can catch Art Basel in June, South Beach Seafood Week in October, Art Deco Weekend in January, Miami Beach Gay Pride in April and Miami Fashion Week in May.
At luxury Miami hotels, you can start the day with freshly baked pastries and fresh fruit juice by the pool. In the evening, experience Miami’s vibrant atmosphere with outdoor restaurants. Dishes are prepared using Florida’s best seasonal produce and freshly caught seafood like stone crabs and yellowtail snapper.
On most menus, you’ll find Spanish-influenced dishes like ceviche (raw fish cured in citrus juices with spices) and Miami specialities like key lime pie. Miami also has a rich nightlife with most luxury hotels featuring artisan gin, signature cocktails and quality champagne.
