Nobu Hotel at Eden Roc Miami Beach is currently in its soft-opening phase, with an official launch scheduled for January 2017.

David Rockwell created the interior design, focusing on a rich mixture of natural tones and using a variety of textures, like washi paper, linen, and leather in the decor.
The hotel also houses artworks curated for it by collector Peter Brant from the Brant Foundation Art Study Center with pieces by Richard Prince, Julian Schnabel, Rob Pruitt, Nate Lowman, Josh Smith, Enoc Perez, and Kenny Sharf.
