The Confidante Miami Beach – The Unbound Collection by Hyatt, built in the 1940s, completed a multi-million-dollar suite renovation in 2022, adding 35 new suites to the 339-room mid-century meets retro-glam ocean-front hotel. Along with reimagined guestrooms, the property also features a curated collection of four on-site restaurants, two pools lined with luxury cabanas, a fitness center with virtual classes led by Miami’s top fitness instructors, pet-friendly perks, and much more.
HERE’S THE SCOOP
Bridal parties and bachelorette groups will love the vibrant and playful atmosphere at The Confidante Miami Beach. The adults-only pool deck and beachside lounge setups are nostalgic for the city’s Art-Deco days featuring a muted color palette of yellows, pinks, and blues. This convivial theme carries into guest accommodations, event spaces, and the fitness center. With so much gathering space, it’s the perfect destination for celebrating.
