It's no secret that Miami Beach boasts a number of posh and exclusive hotels and beach clubs for well-to-do locals and high-rolling tourists. And, in fact, the further north you go, the more you'll find yourself enjoying the perks of luxury swimming pools and world-class oceanfront restaurants.
A newer addition to the classy Mid-Beach neighborhood is the self-proclaimed urban resort Miami Beach EDITION.
Developed by famed hotelier Ian Schrager, EDITION offers the kind of opulence that can only be found in Miami.

Located within the historic, former Seville Hotel, this 3.5-acre exclusive property boasts 294 luxurious room, suites and bungalows; two deluxe swimming pools; and 70,000 square feet of private sand and surf.
Plush bedding; Le Labo bathroom amenities; marble bathrooms with rainforest showers; soft robes; fully stocked minibars; incredible ocean and city views; and even iPods and iPads available on request are just some of the perks to be found within each accommodation.
You'll find yourself in a world of sumptuousness as you make your way to the Spa at Miami Beach EDITION, featuring a number of massage services (from Shiatsu to reflexology)' facials (including oxygen infusions); body treatments (like a head-to-toe detox and a triple exfoliation); and all the beauty-based pampering (mani-pedis, haircuts, waxing) you could ever need.

Add to this their menu of Relaxation Lounge experiences (such as oxygen and aromatherapy inhalation), and you won't even remember there's more to explore here.
EDITION is also the home of the Matador Room, their on-site fine dining restaurant headed by Chef Jean Georges Vongerichten and featuring an inspired fusion of Caribbean, Spanish and South American cuisine.
Dine on black truffle and fontina pizzas or roasted snapper with sweet-chili sauce, and wash it all down with a signature cocktail, such as the Dark Horse (Elyx vodka, dry vermouth, lime, agave syrup and ginger ale).
Or come by for a brunch filled with poached eggs with roasted mushrooms, smoked bacon and coconut pancakes with lavender syrup.

One of the most unique features at EDITION is Basement, an entertainment hub that's guaranteed to cater to all tastes.
Inspired by Schrager's involvement with Studio 54, Basement Miami is a micro-club where you'll indulge the senses with the sounds of world-renowned DJs, top-shelf drinks and all-night dancing.
Basement Skate is their 2,000-square-foot indoor ice skating rink, the perfect place for a chill evening.
And, finally, Basement Bowl is their 4-lane bowling alley featuring responsive lighting displays and luminescent bowling balls.
Between its elegant rooms, indulgent spa, exquisite dining and seemingly endless array of entertainment choices, The Miami Beach EDITION is guaranteed to hold steady as one of Miami Beach's best hotels.
