Marriott International, Inc. and Turnberry Associates today announced that Turnberry Isle Miami, Autograph Collection will emerge as JW Marriott Miami Turnberry Resort & Spa . The reimagined hotel features a brand-new 16-story Orchid Tower comprised of 325 spacious guest rooms, doubling the resort's occupancy to 685 rooms. JW Marriott Miami Turnberry Resort & Spa includes a renovated hotel entrance and lobby which will house Soff's, a welcoming lobby bar named for Aventura's visionary founder Don Soffer. Turnberry's pro shop has been redesigned and expanded and the resort's two renowned 18-hole golf courses, Soffer and Miller, originally designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr., have been re-imagined by famous golf icon Raymond Floyd.
"We are delighted to introduce JW Marriott Miami Turnberry Resort & Spa as the latest addition to our expanding luxury portfolio," said Mitzi Gaskins, Vice President & Global Brand Leader, JW Marriott. "The hotel's art deco design exemplifies the effervescence and culture of Miami, allowing each of our guests to enjoy enriching experiences from the moment that they check in. We look forward to continuing to deliver the warm, intentional service that characterizes the JW Marriott brand at our new Miami property."
The resort's standout interior design by Champalimaud took inspiration from Miami's art-deco history presenting clean, geometric lines coupled with classic designs and simple, sophisticated details. The materials and color palettes used throughout the new building come together to celebrate elegance and a strong sense of place, boasting a modern residential design that is true to the JW Marriott aesthetic. A subtle ivory color palette is present throughout the project and evokes a relaxing spa experience that mirrors the airiness of natural beauty that exists within the South Florida surroundings. Hints of blue and brown accents, which are also ubiquitous throughout the resort, reference the natural surroundings of the environment.
The Orchid Tower's room types include: one king size bed, two double beds, one-bedroom suites, presidential suites, and a two-bedroom penthouse all of which create a luxurious atmosphere intended to encourage comfortable lounging and views varying between the resort, golf course or ocean. At the heart of each guest room in the Orchid Tower, lacquer painted wood fluted paneling are featured behind the bed to pay homage to the tower's strong art-deco influence and are accentuated by modern bed lamps designed to complement the panel's sleek lines. Each guest room features a beautiful credenza inspired by Italian designer Gio Ponti, known for his sea-side resorts in southern Italy. The credenza boasts a unique rift cut white oak with a solid Caesarstone top surface and metallic accents of oil rubbed bronze at the hardware and legs. Each guest room also features in-room artwork from established artists curated by DAC Art Consulting.
The inviting bathrooms feature a contemporary design, flaunting Alabama white marble walls and floors. Guest will enjoy stunning vanity counter tops in Bianco Dolomiti classic marble with double sinks, a sleek shower with glass door and a custom vanity mirror with subtle curved corners in an oil rubbed bronze frame, built in full length and perfect light for grooming.
The second phase of the rebrand will include the introduction of Tidal Cove, a world-class waterpark with a FlowRider® Triple, kids' splash park, lazy river and 25 luxury cabanas as well as two distinct dining options, Surf House Bar & Grill and FreeStyle. Tidal Cove is set to debut Spring 2019.
Winter rates for the Orchid Tower start at $529.
