We are Family at Our Miami Beach Resort

We are family here at The Palms Hotel & Spa. And as our valued guests, we invite you to come into our home and become a part of it.


Family History

The Palms Hotel & Spa 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. His advice regarding design was, 'Let in the air and sun. That's what people come to Florida for.'


Family in Our Hearts

To offer fresh sea air and sun to our guests, was crucial to our current owners, who renovated and re-opened the property as The Miami Beach Ocean Resort in the summer of 1992. In the years since, the hotel has become the family’s much loved and prized home welcoming locals and visitors alike.  In 2010 the property was re-launched as The Palms Hotel & Spa, with a mission to provide a vacation experience of total well-being, inspired by nature at its heart and is still today one of only a few independently owned and operated hotels on Miami Beach.
