The Fontainebleau Miami Beach or the Fontainebleau Hotel is one of the most historically and architecturally significant hotels on Miami Beach. Opened in 1954 and designed by Morris Lapidus, it was considered the most luxurious hotel on Miami Beach, and is thought to be the most significant building of Lapidus’s career.
The Fontainebleau Miami Beach is situated on oceanfront Collins Avenue in the heart of Millionaire’s Row and is currently owned by Fontainebleau Resorts. Fronting the Atlantic Ocean, the 1504-room resort’s most distinguishing features include two new towers; 11 restaurants and lounges; a 40,000-square-foot spa with mineral-rich water therapies and co-ed swimming pools; and oceanfront pool-scape featuring a free-form pool shaped as a re-interpretation of Lapidus’ signature bow-tie design.
This particular hotel has so much history; among those is the features on one of my favorites movies, Goldfinger (1964) and Scarface (1983) which featured the pool area. Fontainebleau’s newest luxury 18-story tower is part of the legendary Fontainebleau Miami Beach Resort’s $1 billion renovation and expansion. I have been anticipating this grand opening for a quite a while, it took two years to transform this luxurious Hotel. When I finally had the opportunity to experience it myself, it took my breath away!
