A historic setting in Miami

Cabana culture has been at the heart of The Surf Club ever since the legendary Miami Beach venue opened its doors in 1930. Architect Russell Pancoast designed them with an eye towards extravagance, taking inspiration from French castles, Maine summer cabins and Art Deco architecture. Over the years, Cabana Row has hosted fashion shows, race car displays, and see-and-be-seen parties for aristocrats, statesmen and celebrities. Today, Four Seasons Hotel at The Surf Club and designer Joseph Dirand have reimagined the cabanas to add a few more modern touches, while still honouring their stylish heritage: Daytime Cabanas feature wood decks, rattan furniture, terrazzo floors, marble bathrooms with walk-in showers, and air conditioning, while on the next storey, five Beach Bungalows offer sweeping ocean and pool vistas, deep soaking tubs and customizable king beds, allowing guests to overnight in a slice of history.
