Retreat to The Raleigh Miami for classic Collins Avenue glitz and Art Deco glam – and the pool that Esther Williams made famous in the ’40s. This is South Beach at its best, as confirmed by an international fanbase of beautiful people. A Collins Avenue classic restored to its former glory by noted hotelier André Balazs, The Raleigh’s legendary chic is all fact, no fiction. Rub shoulders with fellow guests and film icons at Martini Bar, or stargaze while you bask by the pool. And while you’re at the pool, why not indulge in a drink and a poolside massage?
One of the great Art Deco grand dames, Raleigh’s understated 1940s glamour pairs perfectly with modern amenities and services like Molton Brown toiletries and complimentary WiFi. This unique balance of past and present is what makes The Raleigh an international sensation, and keeps guests from the desk set to the jet set returning time and again for another memorable stay.
What our Guest say:
“A Hidden treasure… Love the staff, ambiance and the food is amazing! A very magical place! ♥ One of the best NYE party ever. ♥ An Art Deco jewel. ♥ Love the location, in between the Shore Club and Delano. Beautiful low key decor, enchanting pool. But what a shame the oceanfront room was not sound proof. ♥ I love the decoration and the pool area!!! Great service!! Nice chill party on Sundays!”

For those who have discovered it, Miami Beach is a shopper’s paradise. Ultra-luxury boutiques abutting quirky novelty stores abutting beachwear superstores are common fare in South Beach.
And yet, the exotic eccentricity of Miami Beach’s shopping is nowhere more apparent than in The Raleigh’s very own Boutique, located in the Lobby and open daily. Far from your typical hotel gift store, the Raleigh Boutique is a unique collection of carefully selected items from around the world, combining to create one of South Beach’s most chic and understatedly glamorous stores.
Without the “Beach”, South Beach would just be the South. Those who have spent long, lazy days on the sands of South Florida’s most beautiful beach will know that the glamorous combination of white sand, warm azure water, and long, sun-drenched days set Miami apart from every other city in the region, and around the world.
At the Raleigh, we take the Art of Beaching seriously. Plush, rolled towels atop comfy chaise lounges beckon you to make yourself at home. As our guest, your health and comfort are our priority, so we’ll provide you with umbrellas and coverage if you need a little respite from the tropical, midday sun.
If you’re feeling hungry, there’s no reason to go anywhere. We offer food service right to your chaise, prepared by our master chefs with this tropical paradise’s freshest ingredients.
And as the sun dips and you stroll back through The Oasis towards the hotel to start your evening, you’ll reflect on the glorious day you’ve just spent and will probably ask yourself if there’s any way you could move here. Take it from us – we all asked ourselves the same question.
The “Oasis” is just that: a superbly considered sanctuary that serves as a nexus between the pool and the magnificent beach and ocean that lie just beyond. In its simple beauty, The Oasis exhales the essence of The Raleigh: perfectly crafted space, intimate comfort, and the soft rhythmic energy of last night’s fabulous event.
Originally known as “The Aqua Cabana Club”, The Oasis continues to be a tranquil spot for relaxation by day, and scene to many of South Beach’s famously chic parties and hip events by night. Nestled unassumingly between the hotel and the beach, it’s the ideal place to reflect on the good life – whether alone, or with hundreds of your closest friends.
