When America went under lockdown in March, Mondrian South Beach seized the opportunity to revamp the lifestyle hotel, from the rooms to the restaurants. Mondrian will debut its new look when it welcomes guests back on November 16.
Forbes Travel Guide got an exclusive peek at the $20 million transformations. Miami-based designers Peter Oleck and Danny Cubes of OS Design Group drew inspiration from coastal destinations like the Greek Islands, the Balearic Islands, the Amalfi Coast, Sicily, and Tulum to infuse the property with a bohemian tropical flair.
Of course, the pandemic influenced the design as well. “Keeping the post-2020 traveler in mind, guests can expect a complete property renovation, including new breezy and open-air common areas; socially distant meeting spaces; large, private pool cabanas; custom face masks and hand sanitizer stations throughout the property; and much more,” says hotel co-owner, Michael S. Liebowitz.
The centerpiece of the new Miami hotel will be Baia (“bay” in Italian) Beach Club, which will be open to members and hotel guests. Raw organic timber and billowing shades give the beach club an inviting, relaxed atmosphere.
