FOUR SEASONS HOTEL AT THE SURF CLUB

FOUR SEASONS HOTEL AT THE SURF CLUB T he four seasons brand has a coveted, respected and well- deserved cachet, for the superior elegance of its resorts and hotels as well as its service, cuisine, locations and décor. The Four Seasons Hotel at the Surf Club, which opened in 2017, certainly lives up to these standards. Upon arrival at the majestic entrance, the hotel looks large, but is actually more of a boutique Four Seasons, with only 77 rooms and suites. Much of what you see around the nine-acre beachside property are private residences with separate facilities. The “Old World” elegance dates back to the original Surf Club founded in 1930 by tire tycoon, Harvey Firestone. For several decades, this private estate and club was a place where the rich and famous gathered behind very closed doors, and was often the scene of mischief and questionable behavior by the likes of Sinatra, Gary Cooper, Liberace, Churchill, the Shah of Iran and many other headliners. This was a very private and exclusive hideaway. The stunning original building is the nucleus of the hotel, and being in it can easily make you feel a part of its history, while at the same time making you feel so comfortable and at home. As to be expected, accommodations are large, lavish and luxurious, with floor to ceiling windows and luscious amenities. Start your evening in the beautiful Champagne Bar, with intimate seating areas and palm frond hidden nooks, and the largest selection of champagnes in Miami. Dining options include Le Sirenuse Miami (with its sister location on the Amalfi Coast) for fine Italian, and The Surf Club, Thomas

Keller’s first Florida venture offering fresh, continental cuisine. Uncrowded swimming pools, a world-class spa, and meeting and event spaces round out the resort’s offerings. This has been a destination for high society since Mr. Firestone brought it to life nearly a hundred years ago. What began as a private club and residence in an idyllic location dedicated to the sea, sun and all things social now allows guests from all corners of the globe to experience “a new era of elegance,” combined with all the modern comforts as well as unparalleled service and facilities.
