Just steps from the sand, between lively South Beach strip and the relaxed vibe of North Beach is the newly rebranded 150-room Carillon Miami Beach, formerly Canyon Ranch.
The resort first opened its doors in 1958 and quickly became a fashionable hot spot for Rat Pack-era movers and shakers. The rebranding pays homage to its glory days, while blending a mid-century retro feel with luxury amenities and attentive service.
The all-suite resort kicked off its rebranding with the launch of THYME, a restaurant concept by Executive Chef Fritz Zwahlen that offers New American/Asian cuisine. The resort has also revamped its 70,000 sf Spa, which now offers integrated medical, wellness and fitness programs. The space is the largest luxury spa in Miami Beach, featuring a thermal experience that includes Miami’s only igloo.
On-site medical staff also developed the Executive Health Package, where groups can receive a state-of-the-art health assessment in a luxurious beachfront setting. Other luxe group programs include meditations, private yacht charters, and art & food tours by scooter to the fashionable Wynwood Art District.
Spring 2016 will see the start of further renovations to the property, focusing on the hotel’s lobby, outdoor event spaces, pool area and the addition of a new outdoor bar area that will transform the existing Oceanfront Terrace into a new venue. The $25 million revamp will be wrapped up by the end of this year.
