Hyatt set to open new Andaz hotel in Miami

Following a property-wide renovation, luxury lifestyle hotel Andaz Miami Beach is slated to open in late 2024, with reimagined spaces, programming and a new culinary collaboration with Jose Andrés Group.

Hyatt Hotels Corporation, announced an update on the anticipated renovation of The Confidante Miami Beach and its complete transformation into the new Andaz Miami Beach, which is slated to open in the fourth quarter of 2024. The new hotel, which is owned by Sunstone Hotel Investors, Inc., will go beyond the familiar to discover and define guests’ personal essence while immersing themselves in the spirit of the eclectic culture around them through a barrier-free redesigned lobby, two reconceptualized pools and outdoor recreation experience, an exhilarating spa, inspiring guestrooms, suites and meeting spaces, and immersive dining experiences with the hotel’s new culinary provider, José Andrés Group. As part of the hotel’s transformation the iconic oceanfront property will temporarily suspend operations starting Monday, March 25, 2024, through the conclusion of the renovation.

"We are thrilled to unveil this new chapter for Hyatt as our hotel becomes the Andaz Miami Beach, blending the essence of Miami Beach with the allure of imaginative travel to stimulate guests’ curiosity and self-expression,” said Amy Johnson, general manager, of Andaz Miami Beach. “This exciting journey brings the luxury lifestyle Andaz brand to Florida along with exciting collaborations like Jose Andres Group. We look forward to welcoming back our guests and local community to a completely new and bold hotel, embodying the distinctly native experience and expressive nature of the Andaz brand, while still capturing the essence of Miami Beach.”

This first Andaz hotel in Florida will increase Hyatt’s brand footprint and leads the way for new growth in one of the most visited leisure markets in the world. With 29 global properties and more on the horizon, the Andaz brand continues to expand with a focus on inviting its guests to connect with their innermost curiosities and awaken to new experiences within their environment.

With three towers overlooking the beach, the hotel will offer the first-of-its-kind ocean view check-in experience in Miami Beach, a reinvention of all culinary offerings and dynamic spaces including the restaurant outdoor terrace and a second level outdoor Andaz Lounge, which will be a bar-forward destination designed to become the veritable living room of the neighbourhood, with a palpable energy and authenticity that will invite guests and locals to gather, socialize and share ideas in a comfortable and informal setting. The property will offer 25,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event experience space from ballrooms with ocean views to a pool equipped with technology that converts the space to a hard surface for gathering and activations within minutes.

Set to stimulate guests’ curiosity through distinctively local tastes with a twist, José Andrés Group will expand its South Florida footprint bringing world-class dining to the heart of Miami Beach with the opening of three distinct dining experiences at Andaz Miami Beach: an inspired venue that will offer breakfast, lunch and dinner service, a craft cocktail bar celebrating classics, and innovative modern creations – a José Andrés Group signature concept reimagined for today’s Miami. All venues are slated to launch with the reopening of the reimagined resort.
