Inside Miami's Most Instagrammable Hotel
Miami has no shortage of decadence, in fact there is fantasy everywhere, from the rich nightlife scene, to the abundance of luxury hotels, to the endless fine dining options. It’s not hard to visit Miami and overindulge, in more ways than one.
And those who pay it a visit love to share their experience on social (and why would they not, it’s a fantasy playground of filter-worthy images). But one hotel in particular seems to have taken home the trophy when it comes to social sharing by its visitors, and that hotel is the Faena.

Situated on Miami’s famed South Beach, the fairly new hotel (it re-opened its doors at the end of 2015 after a massive transformation from the former Saxony Hotel) is a 169-room wonderland. Richly decorated rooms boast vivid colors and one-of-a-kind art deco-inspired furniture pieces in every nook and cranny. Coupled with the views of the turquoise waters out the ocean view patios, it’s quite a snap-able experience.
The pool (pictured above) is a feast for the eyes, from the red and white swirled umbrellas to the fancy pool butlers reminiscent of a scene out of The Grand Budapest Hotel.
Then there are the two restaurants – one with a 792-bulb chandelier and the other with a giant golden unicorn, not to mention the endless options of Instagrammable eats.
Hidden inside the Tierra Santa Healing Spa is a massive Hamman spa (the biggest in Miami), along with hot marble beds, waterfall-esque showers, and more (to recover after all those late Miami nights).
But the most Instagrammable element of the hotel is no doubt the ever-famous Damien Hirst Golden Mammoth sculpture, just to the right of the pool. If you haven’t seen this on your feed already, well, you will soon. Just wait.
