The St Regis north of Miami in the town of Bal Harbour/Surfside, Florida is an exceptional location for a vacation or a business retreat. The property is incredibly well located right near restaurants, shopping and highways.
This is an amazing oceanfront hotel with a fantastic beach. The hotel is backed up against the ocean, and due to the lack of parking in the area, the beach is for all intents and purposes completely private. On the beach there is extremely attentive pool staff quick to offer beds, towels, drinks and even sunscreen.
The hotel also has two pools – one adult only. Around the pool are beds and villas for those that don’t want to be in the water. The pool is heated year-round and is open 24 hours a day. There is no specific kids pool, but there’s a kids activity room and daily activities for kids.
The hotel has a fitness room equipped with all the most equipment.
The room we stayed in was called the Atlantic suite. It had two full bedrooms, three oceanview balconies, 3 bathrooms, two kitchens, a full living room, a dining room, and even a private entrance from the elevator.
Overall this is an excellent choice for a free Bonvoy stay. On a regular night this will cost 85,000 points, but on off-peak saver it will be 70,000.
The staff is absolutely fantastic, attentive and just what you might expect from a hotel of this caliber.
If you are looking for a great place to stay in South Florida, this is your place.
