If you are planning a trip to the Miami area, look no further than The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort, celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. Situated on nine acres of pristine oceanfront and designed by Sieger Suarez Architectural Partnership, the hotel in recent years has undergone a $35-million renovation by Michael Wolk Design Associates, including the hotel’s lobby and authentic Greek restaurant Atlantiko, as well as three expansive four-bedroom suites.
As you enter the impressive yet inviting lobby, you will be struck by the atrium-inspired space filled with natural light and views toward the grounds. Among the stunning artwork and sculptures, La Gourmandise awaits. A dining concept driven by award-winning pastry chef Antonio Bachour, the café offers a spot to relax with a cup of coffee or light lunch surrounded by the soothing and tasteful interiors and stunning landscape beyond.
The 216 guest rooms are equally matched in beauty and tranquility. Floor-to-ceiling windows lead to spacious balconies, furnished with lounge chairs and day beds, that overlook the vibrant blue waters of the Atlantic and the sandy white beach below. Furnishings are awash in a palette of neutral tones and organic textures, such as bleached Black Limba wood and oak herringbone wall paneling. Sea-life accents in the carpet, fabrics, and artwork echo the natural beauty of Bal Harbour.
The new signature four-bedroom suites are also perfectly appointed and offer the ultimate in privacy, luxury, and style with a main living room that opens to a kitchen and dining area and a sitting room. Each suite offers expansive balconies to enjoy the views.
To celebrate the resort’s 10th anniversary and Bal Harbour Village’s 75th anniversary, take an over-the-top journey of indulgences. As the ultimate way to partake in all the luxuries of Bal Harbour, the experience includes the following:

With Greek native and executive chef Anastasios Chasekioglou at the helm, The St. Regis Bal Harbour’s Atlantikós restaurant serves some of the best Mediterranean cuisine in the country. The new dining room is breathtaking, awash in white with azure accents, and spills out toward the pool for alfresco seating. The aroma of fresh herbs such as oregano, rosemary, and thyme waft through the space, which serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Don’t miss the Sunday brunch, offering chilled seafood towers, ricotta and orange pancakes, citrus French toast, lobster Caesar salad, and baklava tarts in the airy, Santorini-inspired space. Also on offer is the sexy St. Regis Bar, where creative mixologists will concoct specialty drinks to your specifications, often creating new drinks for their patrons’ palates. A nightly sunset Champagne sabering ritual is a must. An elegant cocktail created just for the anniversary, The Peacock features Michter’s 10-Year Single Barrel Bourbon, Grand Marnier Cuvée du Centenaire, and lemon juice, garnished with a candied orange, elegant peacock feather, and gold dust. The drink pairs perfectly with one of the resort’s anniversary macaroons.
Dine poolside, in the St. Regis Bar, or in the dining room at Atlantikós.
For added indulgence, head to the 14,000-square-foot Remède Spa, which offers a tranquil haven for those needing the ultimate in pampering. Transport yourself with a rejuvenating facial or couples massage.
