Nautilus, A Sixty Hotel, Miami – Florida

November 23rd, 2015 by retail design blog

The recent opening of Nautilus, A Sixty Hotel in South Beach, has injected the popular resort with a solid dose of glamour from a bygone era. The 250-room oceanfront property was built in the 1950s by American architect Morris Lapidus [1902-2001], and is the latest addition of hospitality entrepreneur Jason Pomeranc and his partners, brothers Lawrence and Michael Pomeranc, and long-time collaborator Stephen Brandman. This brotherhood of style has managed to create – or should we say recreate – alluring interiors that do justice to the landmark structure. From the moment guests and visitors enter the lofty lobby area, they’re immersed in a welcoming grandeur that warps them right back to the time when sojourning in south beach was inextricably linked to living the insouciant high life.


The guestrooms and suites are well-appointed and obviously meet all modern standards. Putting comfort first, they come in a variety of sizes, featuring discreetly luxurious yet character infused interiors. The custom-made Sferra linnen on the beds, blue tooth docking stations, custom-made artworks by star photographer Sante d’Orazio and plenty of other features not only make a stay here a more than pleasant, but also indicate the keen sense of modern luxury with which nautilus, a sixty hotel has been conceptualized. And speaking of luxury, the penthouse on top of the eighth floor lays it on thick, boasting two bedrooms, a dining area, kitchen, and even a stunning garden terrace. But let’s go back to the lobby, shall we? A meeting place for guests and visitors alike, it’s designed as such to add a fun factor to social interaction.


The lobby bar, features the restored ‘staircase to nowhere’, while a corridor with a gallery wall for rotating art exhibitions leads to the bridge room, a multifunctional event space designed with cues from yacht salons. When feeling peckish, the adjacent driftwood room, a stylish 200-seat restaurant with outdoor terrace, allows for a smooth transition to dining mode with a string of culinary options, courtesy of celebrity chef Alex Guarnaschelli. Nautilus, A Sixty Hotel is set on expansive grounds with an equally high sex appeal. The Nautilus Cabana Club features eight lavish cabanas – each including a dining table, minibar and entertainment system – situated alongside a salt-water swimming pool, while a playful lawn setting is dotted with Bolivian hammocks and private chairs.
