Bold design is a hallmark of Faena Hotels and a characteristic that defines Faena Hotel Miami Beach. Film director Baz Luhrmann and his wife, set designer Catherine Martin, are behind the hotel’s Great Gatsby–inspired design, with custom furnishings created by eminent designer Frank Pollaro, whose bespoke creations are often seen on superyachts. The two-story five-bedroom Penthouse Suite was designed for indoor-outdoor living—wraparound floor-to-ceiling windows bring the ocean into view from every palatial room and each bedroom has its own balcony. The decor is a riot of color and pattern: daring red accents, brassy gold and loud animal prints are all the more striking against the ivory and marble interiors. The expansive areas are ideal for entertaining if you fancy hosting a soirée that would make Jay Gatsby himself proud.
