The laidback Palms Hotel & Spa on Miami Beach is far enough away from South Beach to avoid the noise but near enough to still enjoy all it has to offer. The property is set on the boardwalk amid tropical gardens, with the beach just beyond, and is a 5-minute taxi ride (or a scenic 25-30 minutes on foot) to restaurants, nightclubs and boutique cafés set along Lincoln Road and South Beach.
Lazy afternoons can be spent at the pool surrounded palm trees and hammocks, on the beach (chairs and umbrellas are included in resort fee) or at the on-site Aveda spa that has an aroma steam room, outdoor treatment cabanas and a Vichy-shower.
The hotel's signature Essencia restaurant serves up wholesome global cuisine with popular appeal -- some ingredients come directly from the Chef’s on-property organic garden. Happy hour is held Monday-Thursday from 4-7pm offering discounted drinks. Don't miss the poolside Tiki Bar, which serves up a daily 'featured drink' and has a lively scene in the early evening. Cabanas are also available to hire.
Newly designed in 2010, the rooms and suites have spa-inspired bathrooms with rain shower heads, and floor-to-ceiling windows, some of which benefit from ocean views. Others face the city or the gardens, and the suites have private balconies.
There is a $14 hotel fee per day (inclusive of tax) that includes unlimited Wi-Fi, gym access, beach chairs, local and toll free calls and a daily newspaper.
