The Delano hotel is the ultra-hip, sophisticated adult fantasy land which has been attracting the international see-and-be-seen crowd for almost a decade. The Delano represents one of the first acts of the inimitable Schraeger/ Starck partnership, where the duo went all-out in creating a wild, glamourous playground. Lushly landscaped gardens and minimalist, low-lit modern public spaces take centre stage. While some of the jaw-drop factor has left 10 years on, the fashionable crowd have remained loyal and there is still a thrill at being let loose in this seductive playground. The Delano’s award-winning star restaurant, Blue Door, remains one of Miami’s best, where chef Claude Troisgrois’ creates sumptuous refined modern French cuisine with Brazilian and global influences. Lenny Kravitz’ The Florida Room private bar/club downstairs is one of Miami’s ‘it’ nightlife places, along with the light, white and airy Lobby Bar for cocktails. Don’t miss the stunning outdoor pool with private pool-side cabanas. This adults-only Alice in Wonderful playground is still one of our favourite hotels in the world.
