Well Served

With the new Bamford Spa slated for debut at 1 Hotel & Homes South Beach, Miami’s sultry side is balanced with mother-daughter spa offerings, girl getaway treatments, and a seriously stylish design.

If there’s any downside to Miami’s seductiveness, after several days spent pool hopping, dining, and cocktailing, some serious R+R may top the itinerary. And though Miami is known for its nightlife, it can also be a serene mother-daughter sojourn. Enter the 1 Hotel & Homes South Beach. Located on Collins Ave along the growing north side of South Beach, this chic resort and spa has fast grown from new-kid-on-the-block to one of Miami’s most-frequented hot spots.

For visiting moms and daughters, the main attraction may be the 8,000-square-foot, full-service Bamford Spa, slated for a December 2016 grand opening. The wellness center is reason enough for a Miami escape and ideal for girlfriend getaways (gents, you’ll want to indulge as well). The luxury spa’s design concept, which will echo the property’s overall style by the acclaimed Meyers Davis Studio, will be helmed by Debora Aguiar (residences and spa), and will bring the outdoors in. Customized massage, facials, and salon services will be on tap, in addition to countless group fitness programs to keep guests beach-ready.

The enticement of this incredible luxury vacation property is ultimately defined by a prime locale (with direct beach access), a genuinely enthused staff, and an inherent Miami-chic vibe. Exclusive Resorts recently added 1 Hotel Homes to its curated portfolio—four three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath residences with ocean views feature Tesla service around South Beach and notable outdoor living areas. Though the posh residences are hard to leave, the VIP amenities are what make this Miami getaway unforgettable. Claiming South Beach’s largest rooftop pool and lounge, aptly named 1 Rooftop, in addition to three other outdoor pools, 1 Hotel has captured the energetic Miami lifestyle.

The rooftop is adults-only—a fun setting for older mother-daughter Members—with a revolving cast of DJs and the stellar Watr restaurant (kids allowed after 6pm), which dishes savory, locally caught sushi and poke. Fernando Cruz anchors the exceptional food and wine scene, helming the main restaurant, Habitat, the lobby lounge bar, Drift, as well as the poolside restaurant, The Sandbox. And for younger visitors, the main pool is family friendly, with “seedlings services” for little ones held daily at Basecamp.
