Hyatt Hotels Corporation, in conjunction with Miami-based development group Robert Finvarb Companies and its partner David Martins, announced the opening of Hyatt Centric South Beach Miami, a 105-room lifestyle hotel.

Located in South Beach on Collins Avenue and 16th Street, Hyatt Centric South Beach is the first Hyatt Centric-branded hotel in Miami Beach, and the second Hyatt Centric property worldwide.

Architect Kobi Karp used the local culture of South Beach as inspiration for the design of Hyatt Centric South Beach, a 10-story glass tower that sits above a building façade, blending the city’s Art Deco roots with modern aesthetics.

Protruding horizontal windows are among the unique architectural elements of Hyatt Centric South Beach. Contemporary furnishings and artwork by local gallerist Dina Mitrani are used in the property, while floor-to-ceiling windows offer a view of the street outside the hotel. Public spaces showcase an art series entitled “El Peso de las Cosas” (The Weight of Things), conveying what artist Marina Font describes as “the bridge that connects experiences to memories.”

Upon arrival, guests are led to a central lobby lounge on the third floor where they can browse through the hotel’s curated book collection in The Corner. Outside is an open-air deck featuring a swimming pool, featuring lounge chairs and shaded cabanas. The hotel also offers an indoor-outdoor lobby on the third floor with public spaces available for guests.

Hyatt Centric South Beach has a Spanish-Mediterranean restaurant, DECK sixteen, with executive chef William Milian at the helm of the kitchen. Additional food and beverage amenities include pool and beach service and Hyatt Centric’s signature restaurant-to-room dispatch service.

Other amenities include: a fitness center, custom-designed bicycles and a spa.
