Faena, an ultrahigh-end hotel in the Mid-Beach section of Miami Beach, is scheduled to open Dec. 21. The oceanfront hotel’s 169 rooms and suites are furnished with deco decor, which, according to hotel literature, is designed to evoke Miami’s golden age of the 1950s, when Frank Sinatra and his pals ruled the beach.
Rooms, which start at $539 online during the fall off-season, feature such amenities as marble bathrooms, handcrafted desks and private butler service.
Among the other Faena amenities are a beachfront pool, the 22,000-square-foot Tierra Santa Healing House spa, two upscale restaurants and the Saxony Theater, an opulent, two-level showcase that will feature nightly entertainment and Broadway-style shows.
Faena (www.faena.com/miami-beach/) is part of Mid-Beach’s new, masterplanned Faena District, which runs from 32nd Street to 35th Street. Developed by Argentine Alan Faena, the district will also feature an arts center, a marina, a park, a bazaar and a luxury residential tower.
The Faena hotel occupies what was previously the Saxony Hotel building.
