Located in the heart of South Beach and directly on the ocean, Delano has became a Miami classic. Delano has a glamorous, Indoor/Outdoor lobby, offering a seamless flow between a series of unique indoor and outdoor rooms. Philippe Starck has assembled a stunning international collection of furniture and objects, including works from such renowned artists as Antonio Gaudi, Man Ray, Charles and Ray Eames, Salvador Dali and Mark Newson.
All the rooms and suites has Philippe Starck’s original white-on-white design with Atlantic ocean views. Delano’s stunning pool is a complete reinvention of the standard form, and more akin to a “Water Salon,” with its soothing underwater music and separate areas devoted to floating and meditating. Exclusive cabanas with butlers surround the pool.
Conceived as an indoor room moved outdoors, the landscaped lawn filled with whimsical, Starck-designed “vignettes” – including an antique daybed and over-sized chessboard – that lend it the feeling of a surreally beautiful stage set and make it the ultimate place for hanging out. Delano is situated directly on the beach. You can lie on the oversize beach chairs and enjoy the Miami sun.
