Palmeiras Beach Club at Grove Isle
This Biscayne Bay beauty features luxury accommodations and Ibiza-style beach resort amenities.
Close to all the action, but just far enough removed to offer a sense of quiet, the Palmeiras Beach Club at Grove Isle is prime territory for a relaxing Miami escape. Guests are treated to the best of the waterfront setting; private balconies look out over views of sailboats drifting around the bay, while romantic four-poster beds are bathed in fresh sea breezes. Original artwork, terra cotta tiles, Italian marble bathrooms, hardwood furniture and colonial-style details grace the accommodations to create a bespoke environment that calls to mind an era gone by. The mood carries through the rest of the property, including the elegant dining room led by Venezuelan-born chef Alfredo Alvarez. Also on-site are the upscale Taittinger Lounge and Salon Patron, a contemporary fitness center with a yoga deck, and a full-service spa. Sun worshipers can take advantage of the large pool and beach.
