If sun, sea, pastel deco, and pectorals are your idea of a good time, there’s but one place you should be heading – none other than America’s City of Thong and Dance, Miami.
With those pesky spring breakers long gone, and sticky, hairstyle-ruining hurricane season yet to blow in, the town is yours for the taking, so slap on some bronzer, hike up that skirt, and get ready to shimmy down… You’re not in Kansas anymore, Dorothy.
Firstly, you’ll need a glam flopspot to call home, and the Metropolitan by COMO , Miami Beach ticks all the right boxes with its geometric, vintage-inspired looks, soft pink and sea-foam green palette, poolside dining, and lush COMO Shambhala Urban Escape spa.
Take sunset tipples at rooftop stunner Juvia , then get stuffed at bread-centric Buns & Buns before dancing off all those carbs at Liv – be sure to gussy up gorgeous to penetrate that tightly secured velvet rope.
