Hot tubs.

They’re pretty much perfect as is.

The bubbles. The heat. The ability to transport you back in time.

But put one on a private rooftop patio overlooking the beach, and boom: game changer.

Welcome back to the fold Hotel Breakwater, an iconic Deco hideaway on South Beach redone with jacuzzi-laden rooms and oceanfront penthouses, now open on Ocean Drive.

Yes, it’s the summer of renovated 1930s hotels. And the Breakwater is in the same boat as the others: fancy new bathrooms, iPod docking stations, flat-screens in every room. But this is only round one of the hotel’s rebirth—later this summer, expect an aquarium-style pool (with glass sides), a rooftop bar and a lobby restaurant. (No renovation is complete without a glass pool.)

So the next time you’re in South Beach for Fashion Week Swim (i.e., next weekend), you’ll want to stay in one of two fifth-floor penthouses—each has its own private patio equipped with a jacuzzi overlooking the beach and Ocean Drive. That patio connects to a larger rooftop lounge, outfitted with wicker couches and an on-call bartender if you choose to rent out the lounge for a private event. Oh, and by day the lounge acts as a rooftop solarium open to all hotel guests.

You’ve been meaning to get more solarium in your life.
