Following the success of the Hotel Gansevoort in Manhattan, Gansevoort Hotel Group announces the opening of Gansevoort South Hotel, Spa and Residences, South Beach's most complete luxury lifestyle resort.

Located on the north end of Collins Avenue (between 23rd and 24th Streets), Gansevoort South hotel anchors the Mid Beach area widely considered to be the next epicenter of South Beach. The landmark site (once home to the historic Roney Plaza) has been transformed into a lifestyle destination complete with a 334-room hotel and 259 condominiums. The property will feature the flagship DavidBartonGym + Spa, a full city block of luxury boutiques (including the first Miami outposts of INCA and Big Drop stores and Cutler salon), an intimate lounge by The Opium Group, restaurants by The ONE Group (STK) and Philippe Chow (Philippe), and the East Coast's longest seamless shark tank that spans 50 feet of the dramatic hotel lobby.

Like the New York hotel, the signature feature of Gansevoort South is its 26,000-square-foot rooftop retreat, arguably the largest rooftop playground in the world. A tropical oasis, the rooftop features a 110-foot swimming pool and Plunge bar and lounge. Soaring eighteen floors high, it offers uninterrupted views of the Atlantic Ocean, Biscayne Bay and downtown Miami.

Originally constructed in the 1960's in the classic Art Deco style of South Beach, the building was entirely redesigned by architect Stephen B. Jacobs and interior designer Andi Pepper. The resort centers around a private beach club that anchors the development, and serves as its centerpiece and central gathering spot. On the main level, a 40,000-square-foot semi-circular oceanfront pool plaza boasts an infinity-edge pool trimmed with Bisazza glass tiles. Teak decking, towering palm trees, oversized circular beds and tented alcoves surround the pool, creating a relaxing enclave. An expansive bar/restaurant and an oversized Jacuzzi round out the space.

Acclaimed Nikki Beach designer Stephane Dupoux brings his signature style to the beach level which features the club's main bar, seating area, oversized lounges, cabanas, volleyball courts, and fire pits.

Oversized Rooms and All the Comforts of Home

Hotel rooms are accented with splashes of hot pink against charcoal gray suede walls, providing an understated backdrop for custom-designed tables, sofas, lounge chairs, oversized mirrors and polished wood headboards. Most of the units have large balconies with dramatic ocean, bay or city views.

DavidBartonGym + Spa

National fitness icon David Barton is opening the newest incarnation of his popular gym and his first-ever spa product at Gansevoort South. The 45,000-square-foot flagship location will include a luxurious spa, yoga studios, and private training.

Gourmet Dining/Nightlife Destinations

The ONE Group will open STK restaurant at the hotel. STK first introduced the modern steakhouse to a young, sexy market in Manhattan's Meatpacking District and now brings that successful model to South Beach. Gansevoort South will also include Philippe, a new restaurant by Philippe Chow, longtime chef at the legendary Mr. Chow in New York, serving his signature contemporary Chinese cuisine.

Cafe Bustelo will open their first-ever flagship coffee lounge at the resort and The Opium Group will unveil Louis, an intimate lounge located behind the shark tank in the hotel lobby.

Oceanfront Meeting Space

Gansevoort South includes 45,000 square feet of indoor/outdoor meeting space, with complimentary WiFi and state-of-the-art audiovisual and teleconferencing capabilities.
