Hyatt Hotels corporation in conjunction with Miami-based development group Robert Finvarb Companies and its partner David Martins has announced the opening of Hyatt Centric South Beach Miami, a 105-room lifestyle hotel bringing the first Hyatt Centric-branded hotel to Miami Beach, and the second Hyatt Centric property worldwide.
Renowned architect Kobi Karp uses the local culture of South Beach as inspiration for the design of Hyatt Centric South Beach – a 10-story glass tower that sits above a historic building façade, blending the city’s Art Deco roots with modern aesthetics. Protruding horizontal windows, which Karp describes as “bulging eyes,” are just one of the unique architectural elements that make Hyatt Centric South Beach distinctive. Contemporary furnishings and carefully selected artwork by local gallerist Dina Mitrani define the hotel’s calm and inviting interiors, while floor-to-ceiling windows offer a luminous view of the hustle and bustle outside the hotel. Public spaces showcase an eclectic art series entitled “El Peso de las Cosas” (The Weight of Things) conveying what featured artist Marina Font describes as “the bridge that connects experiences to memories.”
Upon arrival, guests are led to a central lobby lounge on the third floor where they can enjoy handcrafted signature cocktails at the bar and browse through the hotel’s curated book collection in The Corner. Outside is a stunning, open-air deck featuring a swimming pool where guests can leisurely soak up the Miami sun on lush lounge chairs or unwind in shaded cabanas. The hotel also offers a distinctive indoor-outdoor lobby on the third floor with public spaces available for guests to recharge and socialize.
Hyatt Centric South Beach features a Spanish-Mediterranean restaurant, DECK Sixteen, offering a locally sourced menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with executive chef William Milian at the helm of the kitchen. Additional food and beverage amenities include pool and beach service and Hyatt Centric’s signature restaurant-to-room dispatch service, which delivers selected menu items and cocktail kits in 20 minutes or less.
The hotel also offers a unique roster of conveniences including a fitness center and a number of off-site amenities, such as custom-designed bicycles
