1 Hotel South Beach
Reclaimed woods, organic linens, and a massive living wall: 1 Hotel’s commitment to sustainability permeates every facet of this jumbo-sized oceanfront resort. But going green never comes at the expense of luxury. Its 425 airy rooms and suites average an impressive 700-square-feet each, among the largest in all South Beach, and guests in the sprawling accommodations sleep on grey-toned oak beds topped with cotton mattresses. In the bathrooms, Carrara marble soaking tubs and rainfall showers further solidify this eco-friendly resort as anything but roughing it. Scattered throughout the U-shaped property, four pools cater to different crowds. Families head to the oversized center pool, for example, while lap swingers exercise in the Cabana Pool. The most epic views, though, come from the 18th-floor pool, adjacent to the hotel’s rooftop bar. The adults-only space has 360-views of the ocean to the east and the downtown Miami skyline to the west.
