Boutique Hotels in Miami with the Best Pools

Just as beloved for its culture as it is for all the sun, sea, and sand, Miami is an excellent city for lovers of Boutique spots. The lively nightlife, variety of  cuisines, and a mishmash of multicultural attractions and events draw huge crowds. However, there are more and more stops popping up that shine a light on the often-lesser seen side of Miami.

When you think of Miami hotels, you might think of extravagant parties or far-removed resorts full of the rich and famous. For a long time, that was almost the entire Miami hotel scene. However, boutique hotels are popping up all over the city. They’re bringing the style, the change of pace, and the more personalized experience that we absolutely adore. 

What’s more, we all know where we want to hang out when staying in such a hot, sunny, gorgeous place. We’re talking about those pools, of course. Here, we’re going to be looking at seven of the best Miami boutique hotels offering seven of the best poolsides.

1100 West Ave

Part of the Morgan’s Hotel Group’s growing boutique line, Mondrian Hotel South Beach offers custom-designed rooms crafted by Marcel Wanders. Luxurious features like bespoke trompe l’eil mirrors and bathrooms highlighting modern Miami scenery set the scene. For amenities, you’ll find kitchen areas to enjoy, flat-screen HDTVs, and luxurious GUYandGIRL bath products.

Sumptuousness is the word of the day here, and that carries into the pool. Who doesn’t love the idea of relaxing with fantastic views of Biscayne Bay enjoyed from plush lounge pillows? The pool area feels like its own little retreat. There are lush gardens from which you can lazily hang in a hammock, four-poster draped dining areas, and even complimentary yoga sessions on Sundays. Want to switch it up with something a little more exciting? You’re just a few steps away from the jet skis, kayaks, and boating trips of the Bay.

1440 Ocean Dr

Last, but by no means least, is the simple beauty of The Betsy Hotel. The Art Deco style of Ocean Drive is the inspiration behind its bright, relaxing rooms. Plus, they’re full of amenities like MALIN + GOETZ bathroom products, a guest library, and Sferra linens. Feeling at home is very much the vibe here. It’s a pet-friendly, live music playing, artsy community hub that invites guests to really get to know one-another.

Want somewhere that encourages you to get out there and mingle? The two pools don’t shy away from that communal vibe, either. There are lounge areas right by the bar of the trendy hangout spot on the roof. Meanwhile, the Courtyard Pool is very much the shaded tropical resort spot, the place to hang if you want to relax while the kids play. Visit to see for yourself.

3 Faena Hotel

Faena Hotel Miami Beach, Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, FL, USA

+1 (305) 534-8800

Visit Website

3201 Collins Ave

Faena was founded and owned by Alan Faena and designed by architect Brandon Haw of Foster + Partners. It is also so fueled by artistic passion that it can be a little intense. Their signature style is gorgeous. Carrara marble bathrooms, earthy wood furniture and flooring, and dramatic red color theming might make it feel like stepping into a painter’s vision. Still they don’t forget their luxuries, such as their Tierra Santa bath products. Faena is a real arts and cultural epicenter. If you want to get inspired, check out their calendar events including literary talks, jazz concerts, cabaret, and unique dining experiences. 

The pool is just as unique, with candy cane umbrellas, extra thick chaise lounges and chill cabanas. It’s the perfect place to lounge while waiting for the next show.
