Miami Beach Resort & Spa4833 Collins Avenue Miami Beach, FL
Weddings at the Miami Beach Resort & Spa take on an air of South Beach glamour. The familiar landmark soars 18 stories above a sugary strand of beach set between the Atlantic Ocean and the IntraCoastal Waterway. A warm Miami Beach welcome unfolds in the resortÃ¢â?¬â?¢s baroque-style lobby, where intricate mosaics, stately antiques and sparkling chandeliers recall the glitz of old Miami.
Headliners like Frank Sinatra and Jackie Gleason once held court in the resortÃ¢â?¬â?¢s own Starlight Room, today a popular setting for wedding receptions with top-floor views of Biscayne Bay and the city skyline. Other options for gala celebrations include the sweeping Regency Ballroom, the ornate Mediterranean Room, and the Grand Promenade, featuring glass doors, ceiling murals and a circular sunken floor. Outside, the beach and pool deck stage memorable receptions or rehearsal dinners amid flickering tiki torches, lighted palm trees and tropical breezes.
Every member of the party finds the ideal lodgings from the choice of 424 guest rooms, most with floor-to-ceiling views of the water or Miami skyline. Pillow-top mattresses and luxury linens come standard, as do coffeemakers, cable TV, high-speed Internet access and hair dryers. Water View Suites add separate living areas, while two-bedroom Ocean Suites boast three full baths. Brides often opt for one of three Premium Suites, generous in both space and vistas.
While expert event managers attend to the last-minute details, brides begin their own preparations at the Edouard de Paris Salon & Spa. Services here range from wraps and massages to French luxury facials. The salon specializes in a full range of innovative hairstyling techniques plus manicures and pedicures.
Between celebrations, bridal parties spend their days sunning by the ocean or lounging by the Olympic-size pool. They rent boats, Jet Skis and kayaks, and arrange parasailing excursions through the beachfront Aqua Sports Center. Or they pair up to play golf at the Miami Beach Golf Course, just five minutes away. Three onsite eateries help them refuel on the go. But thatÃ¢â?¬â?¢s not all. The attractions of South Beach and Miami wait less than three miles from the resort.
