MIAMI

Living in Philadelphia, the weather is very moody this time of year. By the time March rolls around I am ready to escape to warmer weather. Miami is the perfect little getaway, with only being a 2.5 hour flight from Philly. We spent 4 days with Loews Miami and it was amazing!



Once we landed we headed straight to our hotel. Our room had a balcony with beautiful ocean views. We had some rosé while we unpacked and then cocktails by the pool. Later on, we walked around Ocean Drive, the hotel is within steps of the Versace Mansion, then freshened up for a Cuban dinner. 



The next morning we went out in search for Cortadito (Cuban coffee). Afterwards, we headed back to the hotel for a day by the pool. Loews Miami provided us with an 'adults only soak cabana' for the day. Soak Cabanas come with your own private cabana, including 4 lounge chairs, along with a butler service from 9-6pm. We were sipping on frozen mojitos all day! I love how refreshing mint is in drinks. We ate lots of yummy food throughout the day including tuna niçoise salad, grilled octopus skewers, shrimp cocktail, baja chicken, veggie burger and more. They even walk around offering complimentary cocktails and beverages to try. It was the most relaxing experience! If you visit and reserve a cabana, ask for Paul. He was extremely kind and accommodating. We had so much fun with him!




The Loews Miami has several great restaurants right on site, along with serving Starbucks coffee. For breakfast we ate at Preston's Market attached to the hotel. You can sit inside or outside and have a view of the palm trees, pool, and beach in the distance. They offer a buffet or sit down dining. We chose to dine outside to enjoy the weather and view. Their avocado toast and eggs Benedict were delicious!


After breakfast we headed down to the beach. If you're staying at the hotel the beach lounge chairs are complimentary. They also offer umbrellas and private day beds, which we absolutely took advantage of.  The day bed was perfect to give you the option for shade if the sun gets too hot. They sit a few feet high off the sand and include cushioned pads to lay down or sit up along with an huge awning to hide from the sun. Similar to the pool cabana, you get butler service with the beach front day beds. Loews Miami sits directly on South Beach which has bright blue warm ocean water, just like the Caribbean. 


Our last evening in Miami we dined at another on-site restaurant, Lure Fishbar.  The restaurant's decor is a swanky nautical atmosphere with dim lighting. We started off with some cocktails, of course. I got the Sake 75 which was Tanqueray gin, Soto sake, basil, cucumber, honey, and Prosecco. It was beyond delicious! Josh got The 4 B's which was Bulleit bourbon, Brute Americano, Banane du Bresil, and bitters. We started with spicy tuna crispy rice, oyster deviled eggs, and tempura shrimp tossed in spicy sesame mayo for appetizers. If you know me you know sushi is my favorite food. So for dinner we got a Kenai Roll: spicy wild king salmon, cucumber, fried shallots. HellFire Roll: spicy tuna, cucumber, temporary flake, brûléed tuna, avocado, with kimchi sauce. Dynamite Roll: spicy scallop topped with spicy tuna, yellowtail, and tobiko and a side of the house fried rice. This meal was some of the best sushi I ever had and a great ending to a much needed trip! Thank you Loews Miami for an amazing time.
