Last week-ish I had the absolute pleasure of traveling to Miami with three of my closest friends (@ethantodd, @thenathanielmanual, @sinkthesun) to stay at the 1 Hotel South Beach. The entire experience was mind-blowingly amazing and will go down as one of my favorite experiences I’ve ever had.
The 1 Hotel is a five star, luxury hotel in South Beach’s most energetic part of town. There is literally something for everyone – for families, for partiers and for those that just want to relax and take it all in. I’ve stayed at the 1 hotel before and it’s the only hotel I’ll stay at when I go to Miami from now on. The lobby entrance is beautiful with greenery and a sandalwood scent that lingers and instantly relaxes you. Plus, everyone that works there is so nice and so pretty. It’s actually heaven.
The concept behind the hotel is an eco-friendly, recycled based hotel. Every touch and detail is well thought out including the room keys which are made of recycled wood and the water filtering systems in the room. The hotel is massive and has three pools, one family sized pool, one long infinity-type pool with a view of South Beach and then (my favorite) the adults-only rooftop pool.
The food at the 1 hotel was insanely good! We didn’t need to leave! The restaurant is called Beachcraft and it’s attached to the hotel itself. The staff is extremely personable and fun and the food was some of the best food I have ever eaten in my life. Some highlights for me were the Blue Crab Avocado Toast, the char-grilled octopus and these puff pastry things for desert with chocolate dipping sauce and boysenberries.
Ugh! It was such a nice trip with such amazing people, it was hard to leave. Take a look at the photos below and next time you’re in Miami, you have to stay the 1 Hotel South Beach (yes that was a command)! Till next time!
