The Regent South Beach

Welcome to Miami

Swimsuit Views on South Beach

It's late March and spring is still dragging its prissy little feet in New York. Instead of sitting idly by while Gotham gets its meteorological act together, we say head to a spot that's already thwarted winter—South Beach—and check out the new and relentlessly lavishing Regent.

Unveiled last month, the 80-suite, five-story Regent South Beach is a luxury pioneer. It's the first hotel in 20 years to open in the historic Art Deco district of SB; the first hotel to span both of the famed SB boulevards Ocean Drive and Collins Avenue; and the first Regent hotel in the Americas since the brand's resurgence.

But the real draw: your amenities. Stay in one of the RSB's 27 rooftop suites, and you'll have access to two 32-inch LCD flat-screens, in-room spa treatments, a 700-square-foot terrace with Roman hot tub and—in case privacy is required—a retractable roof. You'll also receive a Pocket Butler, which is a mini cell phone with direct dial to hotel chauffeurs and concierge. (It works much better than the original concept: a real butler you keep in your pocket.)

For dinner, move downstairs to the Regent's Table 8 South Beach, the sister resto to celebrity chef Govind Armstrong's trendy Table 8 LA. That's of course after you stop by Table 8's expansive outdoor lounge, where you can enjoy cocktails and tapas from a unique vantage point: beneath the hotel's glass-bottom pool.

And you thought you'd seen every angle of the beach.
