Peek Inside Kimpton Angler’s Sun-Soaked South Beach GetawayAuthor:Michelle Konstantinovsky
Miami’s South Beach is world famous for being a white sand paradise during the day and an electric party playground after dark. It’s also home to the renowned Art Deco District where design and architecture take centerstage. Now the famed location is home to another design marvel in the form of Kimpton Angler’s, a newly added architectural space featuring a rooftop pool and 85 guestrooms, designed by one of San Francisco’s top design firms, NICOLEHOLLIS.
Located just one block from Ocean Drive, the hotel’s accommodations are roomier than most you’ll find in South Beach, and they come prepped with upscale amenities like wet bars and balconies high above the hectic energy down below. In fact, every single one of the rooms in the five-story building has a private terrace or balcony, in addition to white wood floors, Frette cotton sheets, a spacious walk-in shower, and other impressive extras. And of course, all guests have access to a stunning rooftop pool lined by lounge chairs, sunning beds, and palm trees.
The art deco details are plentiful throughout the property and reflected in everything from the architecture to the unique reception desk hand-carved from marble. Angler’s is also an ideal spot for meetings and events, with private indoor venues and outdoor spaces for up to 300 guests. The modern meeting space flows out to a private outdoor terrace, and a staircase leads to additional function space on the second floor. The original 1930s-era buildings also feature small boardrooms and private patios, and the various event spaces can accommodate parties as small as 10 and as large as 300.
Another impressive feature of Kimpton Angler’s Hotel is its partnership with University of Miami’s (UM) Benthic Ecology and Coral Restoration Lab. The two entities have teamed up to help restore a coral reef site off the shores of Miami Beach. A key element of the UM program is Rescue-a-Reef, a “citizen science” effort that includes a fun, hands-on learning experience for the public. As part of Rescue-a-Reef, Kimpton Angler’s offers half-day excursions through the program’s charter partner, Deco Divers.
