1 Hotel South Beach

Why we love it: An eco-friendly jewel in South Beach with massive rooms, multiple pools, and a serious wellness focus

The Highlights:
- Direct beach access and four pools
- The full-service Bamford spa and 14,000-square-foot fitness center
- A onsite restaurant helmed by Tom Colicchio

The Review:
It’s hard to make people take notice in flamboyant South Beach but 1 Hotel managed to make a significant mark not with opulence but with eco-consciousness. Since its debut in 2015, the hotel has become a hub for stylish, wellness-focused travelers who love its environmentally friendly features like salvaged wood, living plant walls, and bulk toiletries. The four pools—including an adults-only one on the roof with sweeping ocean views—direct beach access with chairs and umbrellas, and spacious Bamford spa don’t hurt either. Children are welcomed with a play area on the beach, kids’ club, and two family-friendly pools.

Rooms here are massive, with the smallest starting at 700 square feet. Whites and beiges rule the color palette, complemented by rattan and wood accents for a beachy feel. Also included are hemp mattresses covered in organic sheets, chalkboards instead of wasteful pads of paper, and take-home socks in place of disposable slippers. There’s even a yoga mat in every room, should you feel so inclined, though you could also head down to the massive fitness complex, yoga deck, and obstacle course (yes, really). If you’re feeling peckish, buy a snack at the lobby farm stand, or wander over to Beachcraft, chef Tom Colicchio’s ode to seasonal produce and fresh seafood. Tom on Collins is the cute lobby bar and often hosts live Cuban music or jazz—a quieter scene than most South Beach party spots. Sometimes the rooftop bar is a bit more sceney, but if you need to get out, hitch a ride in the house Tesla anywhere within three miles.

Miami's New Eco Hotel: 1Hotels

From Barry Sternlicht, founder of the Starwood Hotels, comes a new brand: 1Hotels (now open in Miami) where, when you’re not sunbathing or celebrating at a full-moon fete, you can join a volunteer expedition to, say, clean a beach. The hotel eschews plastic (bye-bye travel-size shampoo bottles), maintains a fleet of Teslas, and hosts a monthly mini farmers’ market in the lobby.

1 Hotel South Beach

One of the newest proposals to Miami’s robust South Beach hotel scene is the 1 Hotel South Beach. The ocean front property is massive, occupying an entire city block with 425 hotel rooms and a wing of privately held condos. What hems the property together and attracts visitors that aren’t hotel guests are the property's excellent restaurants, spa and its four pools, the rooftop pool being the largest and most impressive rooftop pool in South Beach. This is a fabulous hangout spot at the hotel, especially for the spectacular views and the Watr at the 1 Rooftop restaurant with a lunch and inner menu that offers Polynesian and Japanese-inspired fare like hand rolls and poke bowls.

The hotel itself is stunning and was planned with sustainable design in mind. The interiors are materials like salvaged Florida cypress, coral stone and nearly 11,000 living plants. Designers used and reused as many natural elements as possible throughout, keeping in mind their carbon footprint without comprising on creating very stylish and attractive spaces. Rooms and suites have thoughtful touches, like a mini bar stocked with artisan snacks and small batch beauty products like sunscreens and body oils. They also come with a triple filtered water fountain that provides free, super clean drinking water. The service here is excellent, and the hotel also has Telsa house vehicles that give guests complimentary rides within a three mile radius.
