Luxury Travel Tips

I want to continue the topic I started earlier about the St. Regis Hotels & Resorts!

This time we will talk about St.Regis Bal Harbor Resort in the Bal Harbor area in Miami.

How I am pleased with these brand new hotels with their well-trained staff and the smell of new furniture in the rooms! The hotel opened in January 2012 (by the way, according to Forbes magazine, at that moment it was the most anticipated hotel of the year).


In the Bal Harbor area, the northernmost municipality of Miami Beach, you will not find historical monuments, churches or temples, here two attractions are the St. Regis Hotel and Bol Harbor Shops. The “village,” as Ball Harbor is called here, occupies only one square mile, sandwiched between the Bay of Biscay and the Atlantic. Kudos to Robert Graham, the real estate developer who, in the midst of the Great Depression, bought land here in north Miami Beach at a very low price, determined to build a perfectly planned block!

The apartments were quickly snapped up by the rich and famous. Frank Sinatra himself began to perform in local clubs, and the Bal Harbor Shops shopping mall, which opened in 1965, became an exemplary US trading enterprise. It was here that the first Neiman Marcus department store outside of Texas was launched, which at that time collected all the latest collections of fashion houses. For Bal Harbor Shops, Bvlgari jewelers cut special diamonds, Miuccia Prada and Carolina Herrera sewed collections limited to a square mile. If you live in Miami Beach and you desperately need Chanel or Dolce & Gabbana, then you have only one way, to the North straight here …


In addition to hundreds of shops, there are many excellent restaurants. La Goulue serves French cuisine, Carpaccio serves Italian pasta and risotto, and our St. Regis, Jean Georges Fongerichten’s J&G Grill serves amazing tuna and avocado tartare, black truffle pizza and glazed ribs with apple puree and jalapeno pepper. For example, I have never heard of such a pepper … only here! And, of course, they serve a beautiful view of the ocean!!!


St. Regis, as always, excels in the concentration of excellent restaurants. The design of the hotel is not inferior … This is the realm of mirrors and crystal, complemented by original works of fine art. Not without the corporate design sign of The St. Regis – wall paintings.



Black and white graphic paintings create a complete illusion that you are in a museum of modern art. The rooms have champagne and chocolate truffles, and by the pool, in the boars, there is the indispensable “Widow”, which, along with towels and sun cream, is included in the vacationer’s set. And that’s not all the pleasant little things, special clients, who are the celestials of the Presidential suite, are provided with catalogs of boutique collections from the aforementioned Bol Harbor. Well, if you are too lazy to flip through beautiful pages, a personal shopper can simply bring them to your room … Everything is simple, fast and affordable! I’m not even talking about tickets to clubs and table reservations at the best restaurants in Miami Beach…



You know, Bal Harbor is the perfect American model of the world, with perfect roads, comfortable and expensive housing, populated by happy millionaires, a jogging track along the ocean, and the phenomenal St. Regis. Yes, yes … A typical American case: an ideal garden city was erected in a wasteland near the ocean. Not everyone can afford it – but that’s their problem!

Oh, yes … At least once you can go to the beach …
