View Factsheet

We are Family

As one of only a few family-owned and operated resorts in Miami Beach, The Palms originally opened its doors as the Sea Isle Hotel in 1941. A beautiful icon of the Art Deco period, designed by renowned architect Roy F France – the American architect who is credited with creating the Miami Beach skyline. Since 1992, The Palms current owners are proud to offer genuine, un-pretentious service in a laid-back ambience. Welcoming locals and visitors alike to return time-and-time again to enjoy a familiar and friendly atmosphere surrounded by tropical nature.

The True Nature of our Miami Beach Oceanfront Resort

At The Palms Hotel & Spa we strive to offer you a memorable experience of total well-being, inspired by nature. What this means to us goes beyond the natural décor of our property, the welcoming ambiance and tropical foliage. It goes deeper than our holistic and personalized AVEDA spa services based on ancient Ayurveda wellness rituals and botanically derived products. It is more than our emphasis on the freshness of our ingredients and the al fresco ambience of The Restaurant at The Palms. And it goes beyond our commitment to being in harmony with nature through our resort-wide sustainability program and local environmental and community partnerships.

It’s about letting our true nature flourish for you to feel whole – on your own, with your love, your family or your team. It’s about the simplicity of feeling content, connected and complete. Total well-being, inspired by nature.
