Haute 5 Pools: Cool Down in Miami

The Delano Hotel

1685 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, Florida 33139

If rum and late night partying isn’t your thing, head a few blocks South to The Delano Hotel where the pool is a complete reinvention of the standard form, and boasts being “more akin to a Water Salon.” The pool area includes relaxing underwater music and separate areas devoted exclusively to floating and meditating. Of course, this is South Beach where only the finest service is expected, so there are private cabanas with poolside dining and butlers available. Known as “The Orchard,” the area was conceived as an indoor room moved outdoors with a fully landscaped lawn filled with Philippe Starck-design “vignettes” lending to atmosphere of sublime relaxation.
