Bal Harbour Hotels
9703 Collins Ave., Bal Harbour
Right across from Bal Harbour Shops (Aquazurra, Valentino, and the like), the 243-room beachfront hotel was designed by Yabu Pushelberg. The twenty-seven-floor hotel, which is a hybrid hotel-and-residential property, occupies a prime stretch of shoreline. Rooms are comfortable, done in a muted color palette of soft beachy shades and greyish blues; many feature balconies overlooking the ocean. There are a few dining options on-site, one of the most notable is the new Atlantikos, which exudes major Santorini vibes with its largely white-and-blue design and chef Anastasios Chasekioglou’s take on traditional Greek cuisine. Dishes like the roasted manouri cheese with honey are meant to be shared. The BH Burger Bar, with its build-your-own burgers, is sure to be a hit with the littles. For the adults, there’s local craft beer on tap and decadent Parmesan tater tots. When it’s time to decompress, the 14,000-square-foot Remède Spa is wholly transporting and features Finnish saunas and aromatic steam rooms. Treatments are offered outdoors in the spa cabanas upon request.
