Planning on going for a vacation and can’t decide where to go? Here are a few reasons why Miami should make the cut on your “short-list for a vacation spot.”

  1. The Beaches

And lots of it! Though the sand in Miami is not “natural” (the sand was artificially pumped from the ocean floor), this beautiful city is surrounded by gorgeous, clear, blue waters and beautiful white sand. Tired of the cold winter months and cold weather, enjoy the warm sunny Miami sun on your skin and the cool waters on your feet as you stroll along the beach sipping your favorite drink.

  1. Lights, Party, Fun and Shopping

If the parade of expensive and fancy cars doesn’t fascinate you enough, then Miami’s exciting nightlife, colorful lights and music from many different cultures will. The diversity in culture certainly guarantees you a variety of tastes, smells, sights and sounds. This city will truly stimulate all your senses.

  1. Relaxing Spas, Yoga on the Beach, Meditation and Rejuvenating Retreats

If a place for peace, quiet, centering, solitude and time away from the busy and noisy city life are what you are looking for, then you have hundreds of spas and retreats to choose from! Perhaps it is just the soothing calmness that the ocean waves bring, but Miami is also the perfect place for a retreat. In fact, some boutique hotels in the area even offer highly specialized spas that cater to your every need – from massages to yoga on the beach.

Now that you have decided where to go for your vacation, then the next thing you need to figure out is a place to stay.

This also makes Miami a perfect vacation spot. A popular tourist destination from all over the world, Miami offers a variety of hotels to choose from that will match your travel budget.

For the past two decades, “boutique hotels” have become the hotel of choice for seasoned and newbie travelers alike. Boutique hotels as opposed to the “chain hotels” are typically about 10 to 100 rooms and are known for its luxury, unique-style and quaint facilities yet offer full service accommodations.

For instance, if you are looking for some quiet and down-time and are just looking to re-charge your energy, then you may choose to go to a boutique hotel that specializes in this, like the Standard Spa Miami Beach Hotel or the Delano Hotel in South Beach. Both hotels are designed to give its guests the most relaxing stay possible. They both offer a variety of spa services. The Delano Hotel, for example, is known for its state-of-the-art rejuvenating facilities.

Another quality that makes boutique hotels a popular choice to travelers compared to its big-chain hotel competitors is the friendly and family environment. Unbiased customer reviews from travel websites all have one thing in common to say about boutique hotels – the staffs are nice and friendly and they know how to make your stay truly comfortable and enjoyable.
