Travel

1 Hotels have quietly been popping up in our favorite neighborhoods over the past few years—including New York, and Brooklyn, but its first location in South Beach, with its laid-back pool scene right along the waterfront, might be our favorite so far. The décor is minimalist, from the whitewashed pool lounges and umbrellas to reclaimed wood walls and cozy white linens in the bedrooms. The light aesthetic feels at home in South Beach yet more Zen and relaxing than some of the other hotels in the area—the rooms feel like an escape from the city. Another major pull here is the food: Chef Jose Mendin serves up Latin American and Asian fusion cuisine at Habitat, while Plnthouse keeps it light with dozens of delicious vegan plates and vegetable-packed juices. Plus, there’s the serene British Bamford Haybarn Spa, a SoulCycle, and a legit 14,000-square-foot gym space (that’s Spartan certified, if that’s your thing).
