Miami is a mecca for VIPs and influencers, thanks to its extensive number of exclusive hotels, nightclubs, restaurants, and beach clubs. It’s all about being seen in the right places, the trendiest bars and lounges, and dancing the night away to the biggest performers from your bottle-serviced booth. 

Many celebrities, sports stars, and reality royalties flock to Miami for the exclusivity, whether they want to unwind in a private cabana, are seeking secluded dining areas, or fancy occupying the most private suite. The hoteliers in Miami are no stranger to VIPs, so you’re sure to have the most luxurious stay with the highest level of hospitality possible. 

Book your luxury holiday to Miami and have your every whim catered to in Magic City.

Top-tier hospitality at The Setai, Miami Beach

The art-deco-designed The Setai, Miami Beach, is a favourite for VIPs and influencers, thanks to its exceptional hospitality. The staff are on hand to ensure you have everything you could possibly need, plus there’s a host of high-end facilities available to indulge in, too. 

The hotel’s Asian-inspired decor gives an antique ambience with unique touches such as teacups in place of glass tumblers in the rooms, as well as the softest of linens and towels to envelop you in utter luxury. Each of the rooms and suites here are spacious and come complete with the most incredible view of either the ocean or the city.

Facilities wise, guests can lounge on private cabanas that elegantly fringe the three pools, which are all heated to different temperatures to suit your preferences. Better still, the sandy beach is just beyond the pools, so you can simply stroll down to the soft waves of the ocean whenever your heart desires. 

The delicious cuisine will suit the most discerning of diners thanks to a line-up of decadent restaurants at The Setai, Miami Beach, each dishing up worldwide inspiration on their plates. One of the most exclusive experiences however is the Asian Night Bazaar, where performers will treat guests to an array of exotic dances whilst they sample the most succulent local dishes. 

Fancy a little R&R? The Valmont Spa will have you feeling like a celebrity thanks to its cutting-edge treatments and formulas, set to nourish and pamper guests from the comfort of a private room.

Star-studded Fontainebleau, Miami Beach

Some of the biggest stars in the world have frequented Fontainebleau Miami Beach. We’re talking megastars such as the king of rock Elvis Presley, Judy Garland, Bob Hope and Lucille Ball. In fact, the hotel’s star-studded clientele meant it had to hire extra security on the door to stop the public from walking in to try and catch glimpse of the stars during their holiday - a level of hospitality and service that hasn't dwindled to this very day. 

If you’re a night owl, the onsite LIV club is a big draw for the Miami elite, with famous faces performing regularly and influencers and celebrities alike filling up the VIP booths. For a first-class experience, why not book a banquette area or a private skybox, complete with table service?

Residing in one of the sumptuous suites is the ultimate way to go VIP, complete with the most incredible views over the city skyline. If you’re exploring the city, travel around Miami in style by renting one of the luxury vehicles in conjunction with MPH, such as the Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder.

Get your retail therapy on and enjoy a styling session courtesy of one of Fountainbleau’s stylists who will dress you in the finest designer garments. Or, perhaps the best way to relax in style is simply in your own private cabana, fully furnished with lounges, mini-fridges, TVs and even butler service?
