24 Hours In Miami
It’s the place to expect the unexpected.
Whether you’re an early riser or you’re not seen til brunchtime (no judgement here), The Goodtime Hotel, as its name would suggest, is one of the hottest new places to stay in Miami. A cool collaboration between entrepreneur David Grutman and singer-songwriter Pharrell Williams, the hotel’s public spaces feature hand-painted murals and art deco plasterwork. Meanwhile, the rooms have leopard-print benches and pink rotary dial phones – just the way we like them. There’s even a carpet woven with a pattern of wet footprints running along the corridors, giving the 266-room waterfront establishment the feeling of “being in a Wes Anderson film”, explains Williams.
The newly opened property also has a 30,000 square-foot pool club called Strawberry Moon, a gym, a recording studio, an eatery and a glossy peach-hued bar called the Library where guests can have fun over coffee or cocktails. “It’s good vibes, good energy, good karma, good food, good music, good environment, good vibration,” Williams told Vogue. “Come there one way, and then you leave vibrating. We call it spiritual WiFi.”
Continue those good vibrations with brunch, which is more than just a meal; it’s a state of mind. After all, at what other time of the day can you combine Champagne and orange juice, eggs and caviar, or berries with French toast and Chantilly cream. It’s daytime hedonism at its very best. Book a bungalow at the hotel’s Pool At The Strawberry Moon, where you can enjoy a Jah-Mama Mary (which is very Bloody good) and Moroccan Shakshuka, with a side order of midday party vibes.
This place has a truly holistic approach to transformative healing and uses indigenous ingredients, traditional methods and state-of-the-art technology. Don’t miss the Tree of Life Vibrations treatment that incorporates a blend of oils and Brazilian rose stones, and ends with Nepalese singing bowls placed on the back to release relaxing sounds and vibrations.
