Faena Hotel

Miami Beach, USA

Step off your superyacht and into the super spa of the moment. Faena is Miami’s hippest new hotspot, on the site of the former Saxony Hotel, a one-time Sinatra watering hole where film director Baz Luhrmann and his costume/set designer wife Catherine Martin have been busy creating an epic spa sanctuary reminiscent of one of their lavishly colourful films. It’s The Great Gatsby with a South American twist: fish-hook chandeliers, paper art installations and Eden-like floral murals offer a visual feast to rival the panoramic views out on to Miami Beach.

Expect the unexpected at the hotel’s Tierra Santa Healing House spa. There’s a sorbet cart in place of a juice bar, a wet spa with a waterfall and your massage is delivered by a mystical spa shaman. The mud, scrubs and oils, all made with healing ingredients from the Amazon, will prove the perfect antidote to that morning-after-the-night-before feeling. Complete your recuperation at the hotel’s own bikini boot camp, with its paddleboarding classes and hardcore triathlon club.

*Best by boat *

Take advantage of Miami's new superyacht marina — Island Gardens Deep Harbour — which can accommodate up to 50 superyachts and is handily situated on nearby Watson Island.
