As a holiday destination Miami, it is best known for South Beach, a trendy playground of dazzlingly restored Art Deco hotels, stylish restaurants and over-the-top nightclubs flanking miles of pristine beach.

PLACES TO STAY

We stayed at the No 1 Hotel South Beach, This 5 star hotel definitely lives up to the modern South Beach vibe I was expecting, huge light and airy bedrooms, which exudes coastal chic, the hotels boosts 4 swimming pools, and a super cool adults only rooftop pool as well as 600 feet of pure white sandy beach along the Atlantic ocean. In the daytime the main pool is all about poolside posing, this is where the beautiful people come out to play, for a more relaxed atmosphere head down to the beach and enjoy a dip the in warm ocean, the beach offers a complete amenities menu from umbrellas to sun loungers, with waitstaff for food and drinks.

St Regis hotel Bal Habour

A sprawling five-star luxury resort in posh Bal Harbour, the 227-room St Regis Bal Harbour offers unparalleled service and amenities. Celebrity chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten is at the helm of the acclaimed J & G Grill. The award-winning Remède Spa is a retreat for the most discerning traveller.

PLACES TO EAT

Miami is in the midst of a culinary revolution—one that’s being led by top chefs and food truck owners in equal parts. From classic Cuban sandwiches to deconstructed lasagna, this is one melting pot you’ll want to dig into.

The city’s food scene has gained worldwide acclaim for offering unique New World cuisine, also known as “Nuevo Latino” or “Floribbean,” a play on the combination of Caribbean and American culinary styles. But as an international destination, the best restaurants in Miami offer plenty of award-winning international and fusion spots that will satisfy cravings for Chinese, Japanese, French, Middle Eastern, and even Italian cuisine.

One of our favorites was YARD BIRD An ode to all things Southern, 2011. Oversized plates are meant to be shared. Though Lewellyn’s Fine Fried Chicken (a family recipe) is the menu’s star, there are plenty of other Lowcountry specialties on offer, from grits to smoked ribs with cornbread. It’s all best washed down with one of the bar’s expertly made bourbon cocktails (the blackberry bourbon lemonade is a popular choice), served up in a mason jar.

STK

STK artfully blends two concepts into one—the modern steakhouse and a chic lounge. A large central lounge area is furnished with creamy leather banquettes and textured crocodile tiles, and is surrounded by an elevated dining room for more formal dining. Theatrical lights illuminate each table, while a DJ creates an energetic vibe throughout the entire space.  Located right next door to our hotel 1 hotel south beach

Joe’s Stone Crab

Established in 1913, Joe’s Stone Crab is as classic a dining experience as it gets in South Beach. The most historic restaurant in Miami Beach is beloved for its old world, white tablecloth style and for its local stone crabs, with the sweet meat inside those freshly-cracked claws drawing diners in their hordes.
