Especial Edition Hotel Miami

O aclamado hotelier Ian Schrager é o nome por trás do novo Miami Beach Edition. Quase 20 anos atrás, Schrager dava novos ares à região mais badalada da Flórida com a inauguração do hoje icônico Hotel Delano. O espírito inovador e o estilo moderno do empresário marcam também essa sua nova aposta, que abriu as portas em dezembro de 2014 e veio para solidificar de vez o status cool que já rondava a região de Mid-Beach. A bandeira Edition é a mais exclusiva da rede Marriott e tem outras três unidades em Londres, Istambul e Nova York, além de muitas outras previstas para os próximos anos ao redor do mundo. Assim como suas propriedades-irmãs, o Miami Beach Edition transpira elegância e design elaborado. Já no lobby, seu estilo único se mostra por meio do chão de mármore branco em contraste com as enormes colunas douradas. Esses elementos já estavam presentes no edifício original, que abrigava o Hotel Seville desde 1955, e estão entre os detalhes que não puderam ser alterados para preservar o caráter histórico da construção. Imposição que acabou por criar uma mistura harmoniosa dos estilos vintage e moderno e que deu ao hotel um charme único. O décor clean dá o tom aos quartos, onde as cores claras e a madeira predominam, no melhor estilo beach chic. São 294 quartos, dos quais cerca de 20 bangalôs privativos – com quarto, sala de jantar, sala de estar e terraço. Nos bangalôs de dois andares, os hóspedes podem ainda desfrutar de um deck no andar de cima com piscina e vista deslumbrante para o mar. O intuito de Schrager era criar um hotel para uma geração que quer viver bem e aproveitar a vida ao máximo, seja no trabalho ou nas férias. Explica-se aí a preocupação com o conforto e com os mínimos detalhes, presentes em todas as áreas do hotel.

Encaixa- se também nesse conceito a área chamadade Basement, onde estão reunidas diversas opções de entretenimento, para hóspedes e não hóspedes. Fica ali a balada Basement Miami, pequena e intimista, onde DJs renomadosagitam a noite. Logo ao lado encontram- se o boliche e a pista de patinação no gelo, ambos na mesma atmosfera de badalação, com efeitos de luz e música a noite inteira. Um espaço concebido para a diversão e que promete ser mais um dos muitos hotspots da noite em Miami. Ainda no clima de descontração, outra das inovações do hotel é o chamado Sandbox. No chão de areia estão dispostos sofás e almofadas, além de redes penduradas nas palmeiras e um telão, que proporciona intimistas sessões de cinema ao ar livre. Puro charme. Em se tratando de Miami Beach, a piscina não poderia ser deixada de lado. Elas são duas: enormes, cercadas por espreguiçadeiras e com um bom bar na proximidade, para que os hóspedes revezem entre o sol e a água, sempre com um bom coquetel em mãos. O hotel esbanja ainda 6.500 metros quadrados de praia bem à sua frente – um dos maiores beachfronts de Miami – e um spa com nove salas de tratamento e um Hamman. No quesito gastronomia, o Edition está bem servido com dois restaurantes comandados pelo renomado chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten.

Dentre eles, o Matador Room tem pratos inspirados na culinária espanhola, com toques da gastronomia caribenha e sul-americana. Já no Market at Edition a proposta é mais semelhante à de um café, com sanduíches, smoothies, sucos e uma vasta seleção de vinhos. Além deles, há ainda o Tropicale, com menu leve e fresco servido ao ar livre, e os bares que oferecem coquetéis refrescantes. Gostou tanto do Edition que quer fazer dele sua casa de veraneio? Sem problemas. O hotel dispõe de 26 residências privativas, disponíveis para compra. Os apartamentos variam entre 85 e 430 metros quadrados, e muitos deles possuem piscinas privativas e cozinha ao ar livre. Tudo seguindo o mesmo conceito de lifestyle, descontração e conforto que marca o hotel. Os apartamentos foram também idealizados por Schrager e realizados em parceria com o arquiteto John Pawson. Os proprietários podem desfrutar de todos os espaços e serviços do hotel, além de terem sua própria área de lazer privativa.

Amankila

Traveling to Bali and having the opportunity to stay in Amankila,  one of the hotels of the Aman Network, can be one of the most incredible experiences of your life.



Another Day in Paradise

.aman @aman


Just drop off at Ngurah Rai Airport so that the incense scents begin to create the atmosphere of what is expected of a season in Bali. One of the 17,508 islands of Indonesia, the province is part of the imagination of 9 out of 10 tourists, who have their paradisiacal beaches as a destination of desire for quite some time in life. And if you are fortunate enough to have this as your next destination, the choice of lodging can be decisive, for this is to be the most enchanting trip you have ever made. One of the determining factors in this sense has to do with hospitality, a term so in vogue lately that it finds its purest translation in the Aman network.

The 33 hotels of the group have in common the location, always in places with unique and stunning landscapes and impeccable service. Amankila, the Bali unit, still has the human factor as the highlight. The feeling we have is that the cordiality of the service does not come from irreproachable training, but from the heart, probably because many of the staff have been there since its inauguration in the early ’90s. In addition, it is a very welcoming people who make the act of serving an art, anticipating their desires and making them come true even before realizing you had them

A paradisiacal place like Bali and the hospitality of the collaborators would be good reasons to make the Amankila a special place, that receives, besides Asian tourists, also many Germans and Americans. However, a very important point for choosing this as your Indonesian retreat is the privacy that can be enjoyed throughout the hotel. In the presidential suite, for example, it is possible to have the feeling of seclusion without feeling reclusive while still having the infinite view of the Indian Ocean as landscape. This aspect, coupled with different massage rituals made with natural products, make the place one of the favorite destinations of many celebrities, such as Cara Delevingne.

Last but not least, let’s talk about local cuisine. Extremely unique, the local cuisine brings thousands of different flavors from the East, with a very unique preparation. It is worth sampling the sate, a kind of skewer that can be made with different marinated and grilled meats, and the Balinese rice, for example, with the friend Goreng or the steamed push. Even better if the meal is made on top of the mountain, in a reserved place but still belonging to the immense territory of the hotel, where it is possible to eat in typical huts, amid the local fauna and flora. It is a journey of peace and tranquility, with moments, turned inland, in a magnificent outdoor landscape.
