MIAMI GOES MANDARIN

THINK OUTSIDE YOUR CUBICLE — GET GLOBAL AT THIS NEW UPSCALE HOTEL


East Asia meets South Florida in Miami’s latest luxury hotel, the Mandarin Oriental. The contemporary hotel’s trendy M-Bar, specializing in martinis and champagne, and its signature restaurant, Azul, blending Latin, Caribbean, and French flavors, swing to the local metro vibe. But the elegant guest rooms with bamboo floors and marble bathrooms create calming, Asian-accented retreats. And the deluxe, 17-room Spa aims to pamper with Balinese, Chinese, Indian, and Thai treatments. Located on Brickell Key, the 329-room hotel overlooks Biscayne Bay, just minutes from the financial district. Rooms from $525. Call (305) 913-8288 or check out www.mandarinoriental.com.
