Transform intense anticipation into reality. Fontainebleau Miami Beach introduces a new culture after a $1 billion renovation and expansion. One that blurs the line between the glamour of the past, the luxury of the present and a new vision for tomorrow. Defined by inspiration, expression and engagement it is a new culture in which anticipation exists from first awareness to long after departure. Participation allows guests to tailor experiences to their own desires. Technology encourages guests to share unique memories and create a perpetual experience. Emerging from the original vision of legendary architect Morris Lapidus whose daring designs epitomized a concept of setting a stage where everyone who enters will play their part, Fontainebleau Miami Beach combines striking design, contemporary art, music, fashion and technology in to a vibrant new kind of immersive guest experience.
Fronting the Atlantic Ocean, the resort features the iconic Chateau building opened in 1945, two new towers, 11 restaurants and lounges, a 40,000 square-foot spa and a dramatic, oceanfront poolscape featuring a free-form pool shaped as a modern, reinterpretation of Lapidus’ signature bow-tie design.
In re-envisioning the resort, a team of eight international architects, designers and project managers was assembled to infuse the space with a modern sense of style and sophistication. From its public spaces, lobby and highly-stylized restaurants to its guest rooms, spa and pool, the resort will sparkle with an intoxicating mix of old and new. Painstakingly, the design team preserved or recreated many of Lapidus historical design elements including the circular ceilings, bow-tie design motifs and famed Stairway to Nowhere.
