In the 1930s and 1940s, Miami Beach was in the midst of its real estate development boom and the epitomous Art Deco buildings lining Lummus Park only amounted to a few blocks along Collins Avenue.

For a long time, the building now known as The Confidante by Hyatt was a lonesome figure at 40th Street, looming North of an otherwise almost a beach almost deserted. Not only was this building located at South Beach's highest point, it was South Beach's highest point with its 16 floors rising above the other 4-storey local establishments. It is because of its original architecture and prime location that the Hyatt group has chosen this building to be the site of the Unbound Collection's newest hotels: The Confidante. This hotel will be an addition to a collection that brings together hotels with a rich history and exceptional architecture, including among them the famous Cannois palace Le Martinez.


Revived by architect Kobi Karp and redecorated by Martin Brudnizki, The Confidante combines the kitschy glamor of Miami Beach with the comfort and service of luxury hospitality. All the rooms and suites overlooking the beach have beautiful balconies equipped with deck chairs perfect for moments of relaxation, while the décor is a proud but tasteful celebration of American vintage — much like the hotel's wine machine that allows you to treat yourself to a glass of wine (we suggest the Evesham Wood Pinot Noir or Justin Sauvignon Blanc) without having to open an entire bottle or to resort to room service. Simple but a surprising Must-Have, this is a local invention that is only available to The Confidante.

Suggestions for daily activities? Take a run on the boardwalk, join a yoga class on the rooftop, pay a visit to the gym or do a couple of lengths in the hotel's pristine pool - rest assured that a delicious and healthy lunch will be served in the pool-side cabanas in time for your daily afternoon tanning session on the beach.
