Turning the Lights Down Low at the W South beach
February 5, 2014
Whenever I travel and there happens to be a W Hotel at my destination, that is where I will stay. This is mainly because I am drawn to hotels with lavish minimalist modern decor as well as trendy and young crowds, something that the W hotels seem to possess in abundance. There is not a single W Hotel I have stayed in or dined at in any part of the world, be it Washington, New York or Barcelona that has not left me submerged with cravings to stay a little longer than planned. The only one hotel in this luxury chain that I have not yet visited, but yearning to before I meet my maker, is the W Hotel South Beach Miami. Not only is this property located on one of the best holiday locations in the world popular with Americans and international wealthy tourists, it is also a destination for beautiful people who solicit the most luxurious entertainment globally.
The 408-unit condo designed by Anna Busta, Paula Hayes and Danny Clinch features magnificent views of the Atlantic Ocean from every room. Bars such as the WALL Ultralounge, The Living Room and Grove, as well as restaurants including Mr Chow and The Dutch, make it the perfect destination for fun loving lovers, especially during this month of February with the looming St Valentine’s day.
For Valentine’s the hotel has set up 2 luxurious packages: “Turn the Lights Down Low,” perfect for lovers who seek only the finer things in life, with three nights accommodations in a two-bedroom penthouse suite featuring a Japanese soaking tub, gourmet kitchen and private terrace. Also included are roundtrip helicopter transportation between Miami International Airport and Miami Beach’s Watson Island helipad, a private seaplane, yacht and dinner escape with a four-hour sunset cruise and five-course dinner aboard a 120-foot yacht. And as if that were not enough, a Miami night sky helicopter tour, Ferrari California car loaner for the weekend, Bliss Spa couples massage on private penthouse rooftop terrace and in-room dining with a menu curated by The Dutch’s Chef Andrew Carmellini. The price $55,000.
My lights have been bright for a long time, so I need to be packing my suitcase and heading to W South Beach, only problem is, where the hell is my Valentine????
