The Ritz-Carlton Residences South Beach

Only steps away from Miami's legendary oceanfront, The Ritz-Carlton Residences South Beach arise as a retreat from the ordinary and a distinguished addition to the brand's portfolio of exquisite private homes. This architectural marvel seamlessly bridges the historical allure of the Sagamore Hotel with the contemporary relevance of an innovative tower, offering residents and their guests an exquisite blend of artistry and effortless elegance. Nestled between the azure expanse of the ocean, lush terraced gardens with cascading water features, and an extraordinary beach club serviced by Michelin-starred chef José Andrés, this property stands as a sophisticated urban oasis. Tailored to meet the expectations of a discerning global clientele, it sets the bar with the utmost standards of luxury and refinement.

Featuring a thoughtful design narrative crafted by Studio Munge, The Ritz-Carlton Residences South Beach reveals its charms as a contemporary expression of the local Art Deco and MiMo movements that pays homage to the past while embracing reimagined tailored craftsmanship. The bespoke reception lobby sets the tone, featuring a signature waving custom-cut stone floor pattern and a backdrop of artfully stacked wood fins, all accented by shimmering bronze metal. An oversized arch frames a bespoke white onyx reception desk, supported by a cinched bronze pedestal base, welcoming guests with a sense of luxury and sophistication. A journey through the ground floor reveals an ever-changing art gallery that pays homage to Sagamore's prestigious past, leading to an intimate screening room adorned with plush modernist loungers and sensual cognac mohair. The tiered room transforms seamlessly into a multipurpose event space, complete with a sculptural backlit onyx cocktail bar tucked behind a retractable screen.

Dedicated to wellness and entertainment, the 5th floor, accessible to residents and their guests only, boasts boutique amenities complementing The Ritz-Carlton hotel services. Within its lobby, oak wood panels adorned with a scalloped design are artfully stained with a light whitewash, evoking the tranquil ambience of a breezy morning on the beach. The bespoke parquet flooring echoes the waviness of the reception, creating a harmonious visual continuity throughout the levels. Above, a luminescent bespoke cluster chandelier, with its reflective milky opalescent qualities, bathes the room in a soft and enchanting glow, adding an extra layer of sophistication to the welcoming vestibule.

On this level, residents and their guests are treated to state-of-the-art cardio and core training equipment within the fitness centre, boasting awe-inspiring ocean vistas that extend seamlessly into the expansive mirrors. The room is distinguished by its lofty ceiling, cleverly incorporating lighting within the wood slate structure. The high-tech rubber floor, harmonizing with the light white oak wood decking the space, creates a soothing tonal atmosphere. For personalized training sessions, residents can choose between the engaging communal area or opt for the privacy of one of the two exclusive private pods.
For private events, a serene lounge and dining room with a servery kitchen overlooks lush gardens, featuring light oak wood panelling, expansive sections of travertine stone, and cosy furniture with yellow accents, creating an inviting atmosphere for intimate conversations and private meetings.

The multi-layered 5th-floor experience continues with a fabulous outdoor pool, inviting sun loungers beneath playful umbrellas and four semi-private cabanas defined by slat wood partitions. Enhanced with state-of-the-art multimedia technology and suspended oversized pendants, these exclusive spaces are perfectly tailored for hosting intimate gatherings—from daytime festivities to soirées beneath the stars. The pool deck, adorned with a lively striped pattern in white and Dijon yellow, creates an idyllic backdrop for revelling in the breathtaking ocean views peeking through lush planters. This playful pattern seamlessly transitions into a charming checker motif within the pool, mirroring a captivating sculpture positioned at the deck's end.

Accessed through semi-private elevators, the residences offer a haven of privacy, culminating on the 14th and 15th floors in the bi-level penthouse suites with private rooftop terraces and outdoor pools. Exuding a comforting sense of home and a connection to the magical scenery, the meticulously designed layouts are thoughtfully crafted to showcase the awe-inspiring views. The wide planks of rift-cut white oak hardwood flooring, set against an inviting neutral palette, serve as a subtle canvas, allowing residents' unique personalities to radiate through their customized living spaces.

The kitchens, a testament to exquisite style, feature sophisticated details, luxurious Kallista plumbing fixtures in brushed bronze finish, and top-of-the-line European Gaggenau appliances. The central all-stone island, complete with integrated sinks, captures the essence of the breathtaking architecture with its softly rounded corners. At the same time, diamond-bevelled inset sides impart a sense of dimension and couture detailing. Timelessly elegant, the carefully selected white stone showcases darker, contrasting veining and extends to embellish the backsplash and cloak the hood. White lacquer base cabinets harmonize seamlessly with the stone, while honey oak tower cabinetry, decorated with bronze metal inlays and custom curved handles, imparts a touch of precious detailing. Enhancing the kitchen's allure, reeded glass vitrines and an integrated dry cocktail bar contribute to its remarkable appeal.

Within the more spacious residences, the custom-designed islands boast an added layer of sophistication, featuring integrated half-moon upholstered banquette seating. Complementing this luxurious touch, additional cabinetry is equipped with temperature-controlled wine towers and double ovens, adding practicality and culinary opulence to these expansive kitchen spaces.

The ensuite bathrooms stand as sanctuaries of wellness, featuring a custom floating vanity and backlit mirror complemented by a pair of sconces softly casting additional ambient light. The floors and walls, clad in a showstopper light stone, boast a stunning interplay of silver, gold, and amber veining. The room is further tailored with bronze inlay strips defining the large panes, infusing the space with glamorous sophistication. Through full-height glass doors, an expansive shower awaits, adorned with luxurious fixtures and body jets, while a freestanding soaker tub beckons for moments of unwinding and relaxation.
