MIAMI BEACH—The Metropolitan by COMO, Miami Beach opens Feb. 14, 2014.
It is owned and operated by Singapore-based COMO Hotels and Resorts, which also owns the private island resort Parrot Cay by COMO in the Turks & Caicos.
Located on Collins Ave. and 24th St. in South Beach, the 74-room hotel occupies an original 1930s Art Deco building. It’s situated right on the beach and has a private pool with cabanas and a rooftop COMO Shambhala spa.
Interiors were designed by Italian designer Paola Navone, who preserved the hotel’s Art Deco exterior and other features—such as the lobby’s terrazzo floor—and contrasted it with urbane, contemporary interiors in shades of peppermint green and dusky grey, with surfaces of cool white marble and shining chrome.
The hotel has two restaurants including The Traymore, which will showcase Floridian seafood, and the poolside restaurant—which will only be open to hotel guests. The Traymore Bar will have over 30 artisanal gins.
The rooftop COMO Shambhala Urban Escape will have four treatment rooms, hydrotherapy pool and juice bar with views of the ocean. Therapies will include the company’s signature COMO Shambhala Massage as well as the COMO Shambhala Sun Soother. Each morning, complimentary yoga will be offered on the spa terrace overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway.
