Happy Monday! So excited to be sharing our Miami travel diary today with you all. Michael and I wanted a quick getaway and decided to return to Miami since we love the city. It’s a quick flight for us and I love the fact we are still in the states and just a flight away from home. I have yet to travel to another country since Sutton has been born.
We stayed at the Mandarin Oriental, which is know for their superb service and attention to detail. We was nothing short of impressed. The hotel was absolutely stunning and I felt like we were on our own little island with their private beach and infinity pool right along the ocean. Our room view overlooked Biscayne bay, which was so pretty. I loved being able to sit out on our patio every morning and enjoy coffee and that view.
The spa at the Mandarin Oriental was breath taking. My massage room had 10 foot, floor to ceiling windows over looking the bay. My room also had a jacuzzi spa closest to the windows so you could literally take a bath feeling like your floating over the ocean. It was amazing!
The first night there we had dinner at La Mar at the Mandarin and it was the best dining experience we have ever had in Miami. Not only was the food amazing, but the service was above and beyond any other place I have dined at. Our table had views of the bay and it was so pretty when the sunset. The chef, made a personal appearance at our table to explain our meal and also suggestions on selections as well as some decadent desserts. I highly recommend trying this restaurant, even if you are not staying at the Mandarin Oriental.
Another place we love to visit while is Miami is South Beach. One day we spent beachside in a beach bed with drink service. We completely splurged but it was well worth it. If you do plan on visiting South Beach and don’t want to pay for your beach bead or drinks, I recommend taking a big beach towel, a cooler full of drinks and snacks and spend the day relaxing. I love to read and people watch.
Zuma was another amazing place we ate at. Michael and I both love sushi and was told by several people to try Zuma. The maki combinations were so good and nothing I have ever had before. We sat outdoor with views overlooking they bay. Another amazing place!
The Wynwood art district is also a fun place to go when in Miami. So many cool art murals and pieces and great restaurants all around.
There is a just few highlights and favorite places from our Miami visit. If you are looking to get away and wanting to stay in the states, I highly recommend Miami. So much do, the weather is amazing and the place is beautiful!
