There’s something almost mystical about the Faena Miami Beach. Spread across four blocks on and around Collins Avenue, this opulent destination isn’t just a hotel; it’s a district. Along with rooms and leisure spaces fitted with floor-to-ceiling Juan Gatti wall murals, Alberto Garruti-designed chandeliers, and colorful, mosaic floors, the Faena comes with its own beach club, nightly Cirque du Soleil-like cabaret performances, a shopping complex, and one of the best spas in South Florida: the 22,000-square-foot Tierra Santa Healing House. 

Of course, as you explore it all, you’ll no doubt need to stop and refuel—and when it comes to restaurants, the Faena Miami Beach does not disappoint. Choose between authentic Argentine live-fire cooking at Los Fuegos by Francis Mallmann {3201 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach; 786.655.5610}and out-of-the-box Asian cuisine at Pao by Paul Qui {3201 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach; 786.655.5600}.
