Surfside, Florida, U.S.A.

Forbes Travel Guide 2020 Star Award Winners were released, and Four Seasons Hotel at The Surf Club and the Spa at Four Seasons Hotel at The Surf Club both received Five Star accreditation.

Discreetly nestled in the upper beaches of Miami, The Surf Club was once the hideout for Hollywood legends and politicians alike. Present-day, the Hotel continues to exude old glamour by way of award-winning architecture, interior design, dining and sophisticated service.

The Hotel sits on 900 feet of pristine white-sand beach with three pools and perfectly-manicured lawns and gardens designed by renowned landscape architect Fernando Wong. Just steps away sits Le Sirenuse Miami, the sister restaurant to famed Southern Italian dining destination and its owners, the Sersale family.

Pritzker-prize winning architect Richard Meier designed the three buildings that frame and flank the original clubhouse from 1930; the buildings are an exercise in discrete classical modernism. Parisian interior architect Joseph Dirand designed the interiors of the public areas and bedrooms of the Hotel, together with the Ocean Bungalows and Spa. The property has 77 Hotel rooms, a mix of 119 private residences, 31 one and two-bedroom hotel residences and five unique Ocean Bungalows.

Of the accreditation, General Manager Cornelia Samara notes, “We are beyond honoured and humbled to be considered among the best in class. We strive every day for excellence in everything that we do. We will continue to push for superior quality in product and service, not only as a Hotel but as a global brand.”
