On first sight, this contemporary retreat belies the marque’s signature historic-meets-glamour vibe. In the 1930s, the original Miami Beach venue was often frequented by “Cabana Row” aristocrats (Sinatra among them), plus a paintbrush-in-hand Winston Churchill. And while it’s true the Four Seasons’ abundant array of Joseph Dirand-outfitted guest rooms have high-tech draws, such as 55-inch flatscreen TVs and bedside charging stations, the real treat are the nostalgic Cabana Studios, replete with terrazzo floors and modish wooden deck lanais.
When you’re not getting lost in the 1930s-poised interiors, the club’s wellness options are as cutting-edge as the accommodations. Inside the spa, seek out skincare treatments glossed with global lines, or tailor-made mind-and-body treatments for men; outside, pilates, meditation and yoga sessions are delivered on calm ocean-facing lawns. Meanwhile, the waterside Champagne Bar & Lounge is the perfect place to unwind with a bespoke cocktail.
