Located on Collins Avenue and 24th Street, the property has views that stretch across the Atlantic to the east or the Intracoastal Waterway to the west, flooding rooms with light. Interiors are by the Italian designer Paola Navone, who preserved the hotel’s Art Deco heritage and contrasted it with an urbane, contemporary spirit in shades of peppermint green and dusky best price on nexium grey, with surfaces of cool white marble and shining chrome.

The hotel will feature two restaurants. The Traymore, the headline restaurant, will showcase Floridian seafood, with an emphasis on fine dining and traditional service; the poolside restaurant will be more relaxed, with wood-baked pizzas and easygoing pick-up food to enjoy during the day. The Met Bar will offer premium spirits and Champagnes, while the rooftop COMO Shambhala juice bar will be a space to revitalize with a bespoke juice blend after a workout, beachfront run, or massage.

The COMO Shambhala Urban Escape will feature four treatment rooms and a rooftop hydrotherapy pool. A daily schedule of complimentary yoga and Pilates will also be available to guests, reflecting the company’s commitment to wellness.

COMO hotels focus on wellness, cuisine, adventure, culture, service and design, while trying to uphold a strong, sustainable approach towards the people and places where they operate.
