10 Leading Hotels of the World to Look Out For - #4 Faena Miami

Faena lies on 32nd street in Miami Beach, a landmark hotel known for its truly visionary design, where lavishly assembled interiors and ornate sculptures vie for attention.


Decor is the highlight of this hotel, and chimes perfectly with Miami’s golden age of glamour: think of a vibrant theatrical fantasia, dotted with tiger prints, accents of red and gold, and absolutely no expense spared. Unapologetically bold, the gilded cathedral entrance bears eight neo-romantic murals by Argentinean artist Juan Gatti, and contemporary art lines the walls. Continuing the distinctive design theme outside is a temperature-controlled glass case housing a Damien Hirst sculpture of a woolly mammoth dipped in twenty-four carat gold.

Dining & Entertainment

Guiding a culinary exploration of the senses, Chef Paul Qui leads the way in his restaurant Pao by Paul Qui, where he creates standout dishes through his renowned brand of modern Asian cuisine. Los Fuegos by Francis Mallman has an open fire kitchen and offers an intoxicating mix of past and present, putting a sophisticated twist on rustic recipes. Saxony Bar is an intimate setting steeped in golden age glamour, serving time-honoured cocktails. The Living Room offers guests crafted cocktails and an array of wines in an extraordinary venue showcasing upholstered ruby, silky tiger prints and a gold chandelier of exposed bulbs. Veranda is a laidback space overlooking the pool area, ideal for convivial mornings over breakfast and coffees. Dedicated to celebrating the arts, Faena Theatre draws inspiration from Europe’s magnificent opera houses and the alluring glamour of old Hollywood.
