Walking into Sense Beach House, on Ocean Drive in Miami Beach, one gets the feeling of being transported to a chic and comfortable atmosphere that befits a Hamptons-like beach house on Long Island.
“The atmosphere of Sense Beach House was inspired by the laid-back luxury of the Hamptons with a touch of Italian soul,” says Ciro Campagnoli, the hotel’s owner. “We sought to create a unique and intimate hotel experience where friends and family can relax and enjoy South Beach from the comfort of their own beach home-away-from-home. We’re a family here and we invite guests to become a part of that Sense Beach House family.”
This quaint, 18-room boutique hotel offers more than just a place for your clients to rest their weary heads after a long night of partying on Miami Beach. At first glance, the hotel’s welcoming lobby is furnished in soft shades of blue, white and beige with bleached wood accents and a large bookcase, filled from top to bottom with books and antique-looking knick-knacks, that splits the space between the lobby and the hotel’s restaurant, The Local House.
The restaurant is a hotspot for locals and tourists alike. While Recommend toured the property, we also got a chance to try some of the restaurant’s signature dishes like the goat cheese croquettes with a spicy guava sauce; the pan seared salmon with a summer vegetable ratatouille; fresh oysters; the crispy octopus on a lentils, tomatoes, and cucumber salad; and bacon-wrapped dates stuffed with white cheese, spiced ground beef and a spicy yellow mustard sauce.
From the rooftop of the Oasis, the glittering (and beckoning) Atlantic Ocean can be seen twinkling in the distance—the beach is only one block away from the hotel, which provides guests with complimentary beach chairs and towels. A quaint space with a heated pool and lounge area where guests can order dishes from the hotel’s restaurant, the Oasis is also a great spot to host small events for up to 75 guests.
Sense Beach House is located in the “South of Fifth” neighborhood of Miami Beach, and is situated near trendy nightclubs, restaurants, and local hotspots. If your clients are looking for a South Florida getaway this summer, the hotel is offering 25 percent off summer special for rates, starting at $199, and based on availability.
