Elizabeth Taylor, Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, Katherine Hepburn, Ernest Hemingway, all favored the Eden Roc Miami Beach. This luxurious Miamibeachfront hotel was designed by Morris Lapidus in the Miami Modern style and was completed in 1956. A head to toe refurbishment was done in 2008 but, cleverly enough, the DNA of the past was kept and Lapidus’ touch of genius is still around. It was called Eden Roc Miami Beach for some reason… and, as you would probably guess, the reason is the spectacular ocean panoramas one’s senses can indulge on. We could recommend this suite or that floor but, you know what…? It would be ridiculous: the Atlantic is all around.

Giller in 1953); it will make you wonder about what is left inside. And that´s where the magic continues: state-of-the-art interiors, an infinite pool overlooking the bay, a Turkish hammam with heated marble, lush gardens and a waterfall, rooms in which every detail was thought so to provide the best romantic atmosphere.
