Tropical vibes meet old Hollywood glam at this stunning beachfront property. Faena is the work of visionary hotelier Alan Faena and since its launch, we’ve been sold on the creativity and magic of his imagination and this place. The golden mammoth by Damien Hirst, a fixture in the courtyard, says it all.
Faena is the kind of hotel that will anchor in your memory for a lifetime, from the red and white candy cane-striped umbrellas, to its grand entrance where floor-to-ceiling murals by Juan Gatti take your breath away. The tiles are mosaic, the columns are gold-leafed, and tropical vibes intertwine with old Hollywood glamor. This is after all Frank Sinatra’s former stomping ground in what was once the Saxony.
For guests, the experience is enchanting and we’re not just talking about the supreme service (think: heated bidets and butlers). Powerhouse Argentine chef, Francis Mallmann, helms the kitchen and the spa, Tierra Santa Healing House, features South American ancient healing techniques inspired by Mr. Faena’s Uruguayan beach house. Don’t miss the stunning jasmine-scented hammam with its heated Amazonite platform.
Faena Hotel is only one element in Mr. Faena’s reinvigorated “Faena District,” formerly the largely ignored Mid-Beach neighborhood. The creative is giving the community a multi-purpose, mixed-use facelift that’s revitalizing the area. And the result? Transformational.
The burgeoning art scene extends beyond the blocks around Faena, with rad galleries across the city. VersaceVersaceVersace in Little River is a new type of DIY space where artists can take their ideas and run without limits as a non-commercial, for-profit gallery. In Morningside, The Fountainhead Residency serves as a stopover for global artists in Miami and an exhibition space for their Floridian-inspired work.
Travel with Impact
For Mr. Faena, ideas are powerful tools that change the world. Through his non-profit, Faena Art, the hotelier aims to bridge social interactions and divides, between South and North Americas, and to ensure that art and culture are not lost in property development. The result is an international organization where artists, designers, and filmmakers interact with their environment and urban context to produce cross-cultural art.
