THE Ritz-Carlton has assumed management of luxury resort ONE Bal Harbour Resort & Spa, renamed The Ritz-Carlton Bal Harbour, Miami, marking the tenth property in the hotel company’s Florida portfolio.
The 18-storey glass signature designed tower overlooks the beautiful Atlantic Ocean and Intracoastal water way and sits on five sumptuous acres of landscaped gardens and 750 feet of white sandy beach in the ultra-exclusive neighbourhood of Bal Harbour. The neighborhood is best known for its upscale shops and restaurants and the close proximity to South Beach.
All of the 124 contemporary designed suites, including a magnificent 2,800-sqft penthouse suite, have spectacular ocean-front views and feature European wood cabinetry and granite countertops, stand-alone egg-shaped tubs in bathrooms, expansive living and large terraces with unparalleled views.
A centrepiece of the resort is the 10,000 sqft waterfront spa; a sanctuary promoting renewal and revitalisation. Ten private treatment suites complete with ocean views, a serene waterfront terrace and a reflecting room for pre-and post-treatment relaxation in addition to a state-of-the-art fitness centre, are available to hotel guests and residents in the community.
A spectacular European-edged outdoor swimming pool, a beautiful beach and luxury cabanas with private hot tubs provide multiple options for guests wishing to enjoy the Florida sunshine and fresh ocean breezes in a tranquil setting.
