The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort

This week, I traveled local, just twenty minutes from where I live in Aventura, FL, to stay at the stunning, St. Regis Bal Harbour ResortThe St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort, Miami Beach, awarded the coveted Forbes five-star and AAA five-diamond awards for 2016, is a haven of oceanfront elegance, quiet unwavering taste, anticipatory service and outstanding amenities. This exclusive Miami Beach enclave is directly across from the celebrated Bal Harbour Shops, and just mere minutes from the whirlwind energy of South Beach, Miami.   

 The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort is located on the edge of the Atlantic, just 15 minutes north of South Beach. One of the most distinguished neighborhoods in South Florida, Bal Harbour and the surrounding Miami area provide an escape like no other, with the Atlantic Ocean at your doorstep. The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort brings a whole new level of luxury to the resort experience, with the perfect amenities to exceed your expectations. 

  During your stay, you will have access to many exclusive services, from their iconic St. Regis Butler and 24-hour concierge, to world-class dining, the Remède Spa, and spectacular outdoor experience within two tropical pools, private cabanas and white sand beach. The St. Regis Bal Harbour offers four amazing restaurants including J&G Grill, BH Burger Bar, and the St. Regis Bar & Sushi Lounge, Fresco Beach Bar & Grill.

I stayed in a Grand Luxe Ocean Front Room, and was greeted with the most amazing gifts waiting for me in my room. Louie was gifted a super comfortable bed, and I was gifted with a ton of much needed beauty products from Neiman Marcus and Diptyque Paris in Bal Harbour Shops

I live to eat! These Instagram cookies are too cute!

The brioche french toast is my favorite and one of the best I've ever had!

On my second day, the sun finally started to come out, and I spent time at the pool, and ate poolside at Fresco Beach Bar & Grill. Fresco is a contemporary restaurant that serves up an eclectic menu with Mediterranean flair in a magnificent oceanfront setting – and just steps from the beach!

Walking across the street to Bal Harbour Shops.

The St. Regis set up a special day trip for me to visit my favorite place in South Florida, Bal Harbour Shops. I met with the very sweet, Gotmar Giron, the Bal Harbour Shops Director of Public Relations & Special Events. She took me around the shops, stopping in a few of my favorite stores, where special gift bags were waiting for me in each store. We stopped in David Yurman, The Webster, and Diptyque Paris. For lunch, I are in the new and much-anticipated french restaurant, Le Zoo

Drinking my favorite drink, rosé, at Le Zoo.

A delicious (and very filling) lunch at Le Zoo. 

Stephen Starr brings his signature mix of hospitality and haute design to the much-anticipated Le Zoo. I highly recommend eating at Le Zoo, If you have never been. This stylish 200-seat French brasserie transports diners to the beloved cafés of Paris and the shores of St. Tropez, whether you’re relaxing in the quaint interior salon or dining al fresco on the lush palm tree-covered patio. I loved the menu, and the service is great. The enticing menu features classic bistro fare like steak frites and trout amandine, inspired plats du jour, and an array of dishes celebrating the bright, fresh flavors of the Mediterranean.

On my last day, I walked Louie along the beach one last time. He honestly loves the beach as much as I do! The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort is the perfect place to get away to, even If you don't live in Florida. With an amazing spa, two pools, a beach, and Bal Harbour Shops right across the street, this is an ideal vacation destination. Thank you for having me St. Regis Bal Harbour, and for giving me such a rememberable experience!
