The Hotel Victor in South Beach
It’s always fun to find new bucket list places to visit isn’t it? Even if your dream place is somewhere in the other corner of the world, it’s always fun to catch yourself dreaming about soaking in some hotel’s tub watching an amazing sunset setting over the breezy ocean sky. This time I found an amazing Hotel Victor with a contemporary design in an Art Deco building which’s situated on South Beach’s Ocean Drive.
Built in 1937 by “Dean of Deco” Lawrence Murray Dixon, the Hotel Victor has reopened after an $8 million 2013 makeover. The effortless, understated furnishings of the lobby, all nubby linens, midcentury modern lines and muted palettes now contrasts elegantly with Murray Dixon’s architectural details like glam crystal and brass chandeliers, geometric inlaid floors and a massive flamingo mural. A generous terrace, filled with umbrella tables, leads to both the restaurant and curvaceous pool. The rooms are prettier and more European than the exterior of the hotel indicates, with bleached wood plank floors, Scandinavian-inspired furniture, creamy nautical fabrics and potted orchids. Views of the ocean are captivating, highlighted by plenty of glass. Bathrooms, with clear walls separating the shower and toilet/bidet, are installed separately from the long sinks and Infiniti tubs, which are bedroom centerpieces.
Maybe some of you, who might live somewhere close by this place will take up an idea to spend a night or two at this amazing beauty, but for now, I’ll only dream getting there! Wishing you a wonderful day and if you’re feeling stuck or overworked, just open your bucket list (or start one if you don’t have) and cross something out of it. At least the easiest tiniest one!
