Mandarin Oriental Miami
“To our surprise, we thought we were escaping for a weekend but it felt like we had an amazing month’s vacation in Asia. We were concerned about not being on the ocean but their private beach was a lovely respite in a very quiet environment. The hotel is situated on a small private island just a short bridge away from downtown Miami. Truly a wow experience – and only two and a half hours flight from New York!”

Beautiful setting, extreme customer service levels and two extraordinary five star experiences, The Spa and Azul!
Either on your own, with a friend or significant other – your every need will be catered to.
Dining at “Azul” which exemplifies the Mandarin Oriental’s commitment to five-star dining experiences. Chef Joel Huff and restaurant manager Kimberley Lay have created an unforgettable dining experience from the wine pairings to the delicious cuisine presented with such artistry. You must try their “Goat Cheese” ice cream, one of our favorites. The food presentation was so extraordinary we had to take a few pictures. Truly a very special and memorable experience!
Best time to go
Between October through June – personally prefer the months before high season.
To my greatest surprise was their 5 star spa, one of only 8 in the U.S. and the only one in the state of Florida. Upon entering, you are greeted with cool towels and sandals and led into your private waiting area or a private suite over looking the bay. Their massage therapists are clearly trained at the highest level and deserve their 5 star ranking.
From $400 for a Deluxe Bay View room.
