The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort opened last month with 243 rooms and suites, each with an expansive terrace overlooking unobstructed ocean views. The hotel property spans nine acres alongside a stretch of quiet, white sandy beach, and it has four pools, Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s J&G Grill, an expansive wine vault room with 2,500 bottles, a Mediterranean-style restaurant, and an oceanfront grill. For those seeking rest and relaxation in the Miami area, which is better known for its urban-chic hotels, the St. Regis is equipped with private cabanas, numerous poolside daybeds, and a 14,000-square-foot Remède Spa with indoor-outdoor relaxation rooms.
Conveniently located across the street from the Bal Harbour Shops, and minutes away from South Beach and Miami’s art district, the hotel is part of a three-glass-tower structure which includes the Residences at the St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort, offering 245 two- to five-bedroom condominiums priced from $1.9 to over $10 million.
