I am excited to share this beautiful hotel here in Miami that was recently named one of the sexiest boutique hotels in the world! Ten hotels were selected in the Sexiest Design category at the travel industry show, LE Miami. For those of you who are not familiar, LE Miami gathers the world’s trendiest hotels and most distinguishing travel agents and media.

These global winning hotels hit the trifecta of traditional architecture, contemporary design and of course astounding location. We found this great new article that shares insight about how the hotels were selected to win!

“Creating a sexy hotel is no longer about a particular style or design,” said Serge Dive, founder of LE Miami, it is more about creating a theatrical, glamorous environment.”

“A sexy hotel embraces its neighborhood and geography,” says head of the awards panel Rana Florida, whose company Creative Class Group consults for luxury firms. “A hotel that celebrates its diversity and culture — that dares to be different and takes risks.”

The new high-profile Faena Miami Beach is just north of the heart of South Beach. The owners have created one of the most buzzed-about openings of the year. (The hotel opened in December, while other parts of the Faena development, including a music venue and condos, are still in the works.)

Here are the ‘Sexy Design credentials”: Opulent rooms rich in detail and theatrical pops of red set against the turquoise of Miami’s Atlantic Ocean or Biscayne Bay outside. Most rooms have furnished balconies to encourage indoor/outdoor play and your dedicated butler will take care of your heart’s desires.

More and more amazing places are popping up to keep Miami a glowing destination!
