When you are looking for more than a standard room, it’s a good thing that Miami’s already luxurious hotels can accommodate with over the top digs—and price tags to match. Here’s a peek inside Miami’s most sought after suites with room to spare. This is our ranking of the most outrageous penthouses in Miami.
The Setai is perhaps the most expensive hotel in South Beach—period. And the penthouse gives you 10,000 square-feet of zen-luxe accommodations, including a 3,000 square foot ocean front terrace. The views from the 40th floor are best enjoyed from the private terrace’s infinity pool and Jacuzzi. The four-bedroom, four-bath suite also includes a Steinway piano, a full-service kitchen and amenities like butler service upon request, Frette linens, a rainfall shower, and a Bose surround-sound system.
A favorite amongst A-listers, stay at the Shore Club’s 6,000 square-foot penthouse and channel your inner Derek Jeter, Jay-Z, Floyd Mayweather, or Gisele Bundchen—they’ve all called the triplex home for a night. Shuttle to the top in your private elevator and find a rooftop lap pool with 360-degree panoramic views of the city and the ocean, along with a steam room, sauna, and outdoor shower. It’s an epic party pad with two spiral staircases, stunning white design, and floor-to-ceiling windows.
Mandarin Oriental Miami
Famous for being the only “Forbes Travel Guide Five Star Spa” in Miami, the Mandarin Oriental Miami features two presidential suite options that channel this tranquil-luxe experience. With floor-to-ceiling windows, an oversized master bathroom, and a working fireplace, it’s a cozy retreat with a wraparound balcony and sweeping views of the city and Biscayne Bay. There’s also a fully equipped kitchen, a dining room that entertains eight, and a piano “christened” by Luciano Pavarotti. For the true spa seeker, reserve the Mandarin Suite on the 19th floor and enjoy a personal therapist on call 24 hours a day for in-room services in your designated relaxation room. The 2,000 square-foot rooms also boasts an infinity-edge soaking tub and a two-person, glass-enclosed steam shower.
W South Beac
The W South Beach has a collection of VIP suites, but none is so glamorous as the E-WOW Penthouse. The 2,600 square-foot suite has three bedrooms, all outfitted with king-sized beds and four balconies with unrivaled views of the Atlantic Ocean. The modern-luxe furnishings are complimented with fresh orchids, a Nespresso machine, and a plush robe and slippers. Add to this a rooftop deck with private plunge pool and a grill, and you’ve found your home away from home. E-WOW comes with all the perks of a true VIP, including personalized concierge service, guaranteed entry into W’s nightclub Wall, and a farewell gift on the night of your departure.
JW Marriott Marquis
Situated 41 skyscraping stories above downtown Miami with sweeping views of Biscayne Bay and the Miami River, the JW Marriott Marquis’ Presidential Suite with floor-to-ceiling soundproof windows seems to float above it all. At 2,479 square-feet, the suite includes two bedrooms with Brazilian cherry wood floors, two and a half baths with Italian marble, a living room, dining room, office, and private treadmill room.
