Great Address, Great Stories
Three art deco buildings, including the former landmark Park Central Hotel, make up The Celino South Beach – a 132-room luxury boutique hotel (prices from USD$1,999/RM8,344 per suite) that’s made a sizzlingly hot entrance on the Miami scene. Legend has it that this is where the conga line was invented, while Clark Gable, Rita Hayworth and Humphrey Bogart made merry within its walls, and The Celino hasn’t scaled back on the hedonism of days past.
A slick horseshoe cocktail bar stands in the lobby alongside verdant greenery, vibrant colours and eclectic custom-made furniture, while the rooftop pool provides an unbeatable view of the beach and the world-famous Ocean Drive. Do bring your best swimwear along – the exclusive, intimate pool has a peekaboo glass bottom visible from the Atrium below, which means that poolside glamour is compulsory for all.
