MiMo, the brilliance of a movement that resides in Miami


Glamor is what exalts category hotels that are reborn with the luxury of modern as a standard

The options that Miami offers through its beautiful beaches, is completed through its buildings. The seventh most populous city in the United States houses architectural treasures that many do not know and that are part of the idyllic corners that tourists discover in the middle of their passage there.

The classics are usually transformed into new options. Fashion clothes, antique objects are a clear example of retro style. With hotels, something similar happens. Randall Robinson and Teri D’Amico began an architectural movement called MiMo (Miami Modern) that took place from 1945 until the late 1960s. An extravagant, different and attractive style for the eye of the tourist as for the experts in the field.

One of the most resonant cases is the Deauville Beach Resort, a building that left behind the Bauhaus aesthetic to acquire a more glamorous style, bright colors, protruding angles, concrete boulders and walls with external cuts that resemble the windows of the boats . This hotel had one of the most dazzling visits when The Beatles appeared from the Napoleon Hall in February 1964; It was during the Ed Sullivan show in his second and most important public appearance in the United States.

The Fontainebleau is recognized in Miami not only for this architectural feature, but also for being one of the places that most tourists have frequented in 2018 according to Uber’s list of the ten main delivery destinations to Florida. A large-scale oceanfront hotel with several nightclubs: LIV, StripSteak by Michael Mina and Scarpetta by Scott Conant.

And without a doubt, the most emblematic is the Eden Roc Miami Beach. A building with mixed characteristics, on the one hand, the glamor of the MiMo trend and on the other a modern and renovated atmosphere. The three pools, the award-winning cuisine of Hélène Henderson that offers fresh ingredients from the farm to the table at the Malibu Farm and the ideal location in downtown Miami beach make it the perfect place for any tourist. The particularity goes through the recent incorporation of the BECO Kids Club, a place for the smallest guests of the family group to know the true essence of Miami.

The cultural offer and environmental awareness are part of the proposal of a city in the face of the tide of tourists looking to rest and get to know the extravagant. Design and culture are mixed in the middle of the city of luxuries, trends and stories, a place that you definitely have to know.
