The redevelopment of the former Doral Beach Hotel into The Miami Beach Resort, Yacht & Beach Club is one that nods to famed history of this once grand hotel and provides a rebirth for the next generation of Miami socialites. Opened in 1963 in conjunction with the Doral Country club, The Doral Beach Hotel featured massive crystal chandeliers suspended from vaulted ceilings, marble-faced columns, marble chip floors, an ornate fireplace and mantel, floating scissor stairs with wood-turned balusters and a mural painted domed ceiling - all of which still exist today.
The extensive restoration project includes a complete renovation of all hotel rooms, condo conversions of ocean and bay view suites, and reconfiguration of the main lobby, convention space and restaurants. The addition of a new rooftop club and solarium, poolside villas, exterior curtain wall, and pool deck/beach club will reinforce the brand's commitment to excellence in both service and design. Every aspect of this traditional beach hotel will be re-imagined for the needs and desires of a new generation, and every thought given to enhancing a guest's stay, whether for work, vacation, or relaxation.
The Yacht Club at The Miami Beach Resort will offer unprecedented access for yacht owners to the white sands of Miami Beach as the property has direct access to both the Atlantic Ocean and the Intercoastal Waterway. Currently occupied only during the Miami International Boat Show, this state-of-the-art marina will serve as a year-round port for luxury vessels of all sizes with owners looking to dock at one of the most exclusive venues in the area. Other tiered club membership levels will be offered to attract both locals and individuals from around the world looking for first class service on Miami Beach.
The Miami Beach Resort, Yacht & Beach Club are will also serve as the platform to be recreated at sea, entering the niche cruise industry segment as a boutique brand, yachting to the most desired destinations in the world. The integration of all key amenities and food & beverage features of the brand a la the Miami Beach lifestyle will be optimally suited for such a project and brand extension.
