1701 Collins Avenue in South Miami Beach is now home to the newest SLS property, the SLS Hotel South Beach. Previously known as a Ritz Plaza Hotel, the property is currently undergoing renovations to add new pools, decks and cabanas—as well as 10 luxury poolside bungalow suites, bringing the previous 132 total rooms up to 142.
Also included in the redesign is the addition of real estate development company sbe’s Hyde Lounge brand, which aims to deliver nightlife innovation. Joining the three earlier Hyde Lounge concepts, the South Beach location—dubbed Hyde Beach—will feature 8,000 sq. ft. of indoor/outdoor lounge amenities, reaching out to the sand and just steps from the ocean.
The opening of SLS Hotel South Beach is slated for spring 2012. For more information, visit slshotels.com/southbeach.
