Visitors seeking a truly relaxing vacation head to Miami’s Biltmore Hotel. Unlike other luxury properties, you won’t find guests walking around with name tags. Instead, the Biltmore crowd is lounging at America’s largest hotel pool. Here is where guests eat breakfast over the morning paper, enjoy the cocktail hour specials, swim in the cool waters and star gaze over a night-cap.
Since 1926, the Biltmore has hosted the likes of Al Capone, Thomas Wolfe and several presidents. Women, dressed as if heading to the Oscars, share the elevator with spa goers wearing bedroom slippers. Overheard conversations signify an international, upscale crowd without a trace of snootiness.
When not lounging at the pool, guests make great use of the 10,000 square foot fitness center, the 7th floor spa or the state of the art total performance golf center. Here, a team of physiotherapists and golf fitness instructors using the latest tools for swing diagnostics, design individual programs for swing improvement.”If you’re interested in lowering your score we’ll work on your short game. If you’re more interested in having fun and looking good off the tee then the drive becomes the focus of instruction,” says program director, Justin Bruton.
The award-winning Palme D’or French restaurant is the scene of culinary boot camp weekends while the Italian restaurant; Fontana delivers excellent lunch specials including homemade pastas in beautiful surroundings. Special bed and breakfast and golf packages start at 300.00 per night.
