Venetian Islands Hotels
40 Island Ave., Venetian Islands
On Biscayne Bay Island, just close enough to the buzz of South Beach, but removed if you want to be, this Standard, in particular, has something of a cult following amongst New Yorkers craving a 48-hour cure for winter blues. Here, at the wonderfully 60s-style property, the emphasis is on communal relaxation: there’s outdoor soaking tubs, a 90-degree hammam, a cedar sauna. Rooms are spare, in true Standard fashion, but you’ll likely spend most of your time exploring the property anyway. (It should be noted, some rooms have clawfoot tubs on the patio.) There’s a pretty regular roster of classes on tap too—if you’re up early enough, we recommend a sunrise yoga session or the sunset standup paddle boarding. Note, the Standard has an adults-only mandate, so littles will have to stay behind.
