The iconic Mondrian South Beach is getting ready to relaunch next a US$20 million makeover, with OS Design and style Team drawing inspiration from some of the world’s greatest coastal areas to make a truly memorable lodge.
When it opened in 2008, Mondrian South Beach immediately grew to become a company favorite, thanks not only to its peaceful bayside place with direct marina accessibility on West Avenue – absent from the key vacationer drag of Collins Avenue – but also for its fantastical and bold interiors by Dutch designer Marcel Wanders.
A entire nip and tuck
Now, subsequent a US$20 million major-to-toe overhaul, the 220-space Mondrian South Beach front is when again set to redefine the area hospitality scene when it relaunches on 16 November 2020.
The hotel’s revamp is led by co-entrepreneurs Russell Galbut (co-founder of real estate improvement enterprise Crescent Heights and chairman of Norwegian Cruise Line) and Michael S Liebowitz (CEO and founder of Harbor Group Consulting). “Since partnering with Russell Galbut, I realized this residence deserved a finish makeover,” said Liebowitz. “As the audience of the resort grows up, so really should the property.”
Laidback, advanced elegance
The result swiftly transports the resort into present periods with a refreshed variation of its previous self. Its formerly glistening interiors have now been changed with a laidback understated vibe introduced to lifetime by Miami-centered designers Peter Oleck and Danny Cubes of OS Design and style Group. Getting their cues from calm coastal places like the Greek and Balearic islands, Sicily and Tulum, the designers have subtly inserted normal materials, this kind of as teak, bamboo and rattan, to generate an organic and natural, raw and complex casual class.
The lobby, for instance, has been remodeled with two-toned marble patterned flooring, fluted normal coral columns, a timber reception desk, artisanal handcrafted artwork, and a customized wind-flowing linen chandelier. Added amenities include things like a lot more than 25,000 sq ft of flexible assembly and function room, such as a new enclosed poolside region. There will also be a new chopping-edge spa and wellness centre.
Alongside the renovated guestrooms, spa, popular regions and meeting spaces is the addition of Baia Seaside Club. The focal issue of the residence – with a new eating idea, seaside cabanas and pavilions, boat dockage, access to a entire-assistance wellness facility and unique member-only functions – the bayside place will be the newest offering from LDV Hospitality, the boutique restaurant team powering favourites from Scarpetta to Dolce Italian. In this article, the chilled-out vibes will continue with an open-air residing space showcasing raw timbers, handmade macramé fixtures, Belgian linens, and exquisitely curated bespoke furnishings.
Liebowitz ongoing: “Whether viewing as a Baia Beach Club member, dining at our bayfront restaurant, or being in a single of our new guest rooms, Mondrian South Beach will be a new and exciting working experience for all. Mondrian has constantly been a go-to resort for these seeking for a welcoming, laid-back ambiance, and we’re seeking ahead to bringing back again that outstanding electrical power.”
