Miami is known for its lively nightlife, beautiful beaches, and luxury accommodations. VP of Operations, Milton Sgarbi, takes us through 1 Hotel South Beach’s aptly named Sky Penthouse, which rings in at $45,000 for the night. “It has 4,200 square feet of indoor space, four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and two stories,” says Sgarbi. “But that's not all. The beauty is in the terrace. This is 5,300 square feet of outdoor space.” Green patches, pool tables, and plush loungers are wrapped in endless ocean views. Guests of the Sky Penthouse are provided with roundtrip transportation from the airport as well as a personal Guru to help navigate their stay. In addition, guests also receive two treatments at the hotel’s onsite spa and two lessons at anatomy gym.
Stepping inside the impressive accommodations, you are immediately taken with the airy, serene vibe. “The mastermind behind our design is Barry Sternlicht,” says Sgarbi. “He created everything, from the concept of the brand to his touches in every single corner.” The giant windows surrounding the living area bathes every corner in natural light. The sandy color scheme accented with organic greens brings the outdoors inside, making for a fluid, elegant gathering space.
The suite comes equipped with a full kitchen complete with ample storage and a private wine cellar. The refrigerator is stocked in anticipation of the guest’s arrival with fresh juices. “It's multi-use,” Sgarbi says of the state-of-the-art kitchen. “You can use it yourself, or you can have a chef to cook you a farm-to-table dinner that you will never forget.”
In the beautiful primary bedroom, guests are lulled to sleep wrapped in organic linens surrounded by relaxing hues. The ensuite bathroom is paradise sporting spa-like amenities such as a rain shower with a deep soaking tub. The oversized closet comes with a hotel-provided packing and unpacking service. If the views weren’t so coaxing, you may never want to leave your room.
