We can’t get enough of Miami. The pink-tinged, Latin-laced urban paradise is one of our favourite transatlantic locations. You can imagine our excitement then, when we discovered the latest hotel from Mondrian (opens in new tab) was set to open in the sunshine state. Unveiled late last year, this newest addition to the Mondrian family has already its mark on the South Beach scene.

With pioneering design from hotel wunderkind Marcel Wanders (opens in new tab), the Mondrian has been built with an uber-modern Disney princess in mind. From the oversized chess piece pillars that dot the space, to Jamie Hayon (opens in new tab)’s gigantic white thrones straddling Asia de Cuba’s (the Mondrian’s Asia/Latin fusion restaurant) expansive communal dining table – the theme is anything but understated.
In the lobby, glossy white walls standout seductively against the futuristically ornate, ebony staircase; whilst in the guestrooms, curvy space-age bathroom fittings hit it off with delicate flock wallpapers and airy marbled openness.
The Mondrian’s ultra-hip rooftop hotspot, The Sunset Lounge, offers impeccable views over Biscayne Bay and the fruit-salad skies of downtown Miami. With Ben Pundole (of Bungalow 8 fame) firmly at the helm, the gilded walls, bespoke cocktails, and guestlist to end all guestlists were only to be expected.
