“We are excited to be working toward our opening and introducing the Hyatt Centric brand to Miami Beach in its most famous neighborhood, South Beach,” said Ricardo Mendes, general manager of Hyatt Centric South Beach Miami. “Our location in the heart of South Beach will serve as the perfect space for our guests to enjoy and be inspired to go out and explore.”

Designed by renowned architect Kobi Karp, the 10-story glass tower stands apart from the more traditional art deco developments, providing a beautiful complement to the Miami Beach landscape. The hotel will feature 105 guest rooms, a third-floor deck featuring a swimming pool and an indoor-outdoor dining experience, 700 square feet of meeting space, ground-floor retail, and convenient beach access with chaise lounge chairs and food and beverage service. Situated on prime South Beach real estate, just steps from the beach, Hyatt Centric South Beach will put guests in the center of the action, close to Miami Beach’s premier shopping, restaurants and nightlife venues.

The new hotel will be one of the first hotels to open under the Hyatt Centric brand, which launched earlier this year. “We are very excited to be introducing the Hyatt Centric brand to South Beach. As someone who was born and raised in Miami Beach, I feel a tremendous sense of pride in bringing this world-class hotel brand to my hometown,” said Finvarb.

As a native of Miami Beach, Finvarb has placed a strong emphasis on honoring his roots with each new development. Kobi Karp, whom Finvarb personally enlisted as the lead architect and interior designer of the hotel, has fulfilled his vision of creating an urban oasis at Hyatt Centric South Beach. The hotel’s design blends past and present and features a modern glass cube that sits above the original Art Deco facade of the building. Karp uses the local culture of South Beach as inspiration for the unique interior design – the subtle color schemes of grays and soft blues are simple yet welcoming.

The cosmopolitan vibe will also be felt in guest rooms. The hotel’s 105 rooms will be unique for South Beach, with 19 rooms overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Contemporary furnishings and carefully selected artwork will define the rooms while floor-to-ceiling windows will provide a luminous view of the hustle and bustle of the hotel’s exterior.

The hotel will boast an indoor-outdoor lobby on the third floor, creating a sense of place for guests. The lobby lounge will include a full-service bar offering hand-crafted signature cocktails and a space for guests to recharge and socialize. The Corner will house the hotel’s curated book and magazine selection. Outside, the pool deck will set a distinct Miami tone, where guests can leisurely soak up the Miami sun on lush lounge chairs, or unwind in shaded cabanas. Next-door is Deck 16, a Mediterranean-inspired restaurant that will offer locally sourced cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Executive Chef William Milian will invite diners to savor a variety of Spanish dishes and sip on fresh sangrias. Additional food and beverage amenities offered by the restaurant will include 24-hour knock n’ drop room service and full beach service.

In addition to catering to leisure travelers, Hyatt Centric South Beach will serve as an ideal hotel for business guests. The hotel will offer 700 square-feet of meeting space on the second floor in a boardroom. Hyatt Centric South Beach will allow for convenient connectivity with friends, family and coworkers. Additional amenities will include complimentary wireless Internet throughout the hotel, a Bluetooth enabled TV system, and ground-floor retail space.

Hyatt Centric South Beach will also be an active member of its local community. Upon opening, guests will find an abstract photography series in guest rooms and public spaces curated by Dina Mitrani, a local Wynwood gallerist. Guests will also find local brands featured throughout the hotel to provide travelers with an authentic Miami experience.

Hyatt Centric South Beach Miami is set to open in April 2015, and will be located at 1600 Collins Avenue.
