Nobuyuki Matsuhisa has long been known for his exceptional fine Japanese cuisine, and most notably his namesake “Nobu” restaurants. Following decades of success in the restaurant industry, he, along with Nobu partners have ventured into the luxury hospitality business with Nobu Hotels. After the launch of the first Nobu Hotel in 2013, the company has seen much success in incorporating Nobu’s style into a luxury lifestyle experience. Branching out from a food focused brand with 38 restaurants, Nobu now encompasses sixteen hotels with additional properties in the pipeline as well.
Nobu Miami Beach
The Nobu Hotel in Miami Beach is a beachfront property located on the well-known Collins Avenue. Uniquely, Nobu opted for a hotel within a hotel, sharing the property with the Eden Roc. From first glance of the building’s exterior much of the original art deco aesthetic remains intact to preserve the building’s history. However, the Nobu brand has very well merged their taste for fine cuisine seamlessly into the luxury hospitality industry. A combined lobby welcomes guest for both the Nobu and Eden Roc properties, allowing the Nobu style to truly shine through in the hotel’s accommodations, dining, and service.
It’s apparent that Nobu’s Japanese culture has made it’s way into the interior design of the Nobu Hotel. The Japanese chic aesthetic is minimalist in practice yet remains thoughtful in the approach. Elements of nature including cherry blossom art and smooth wooden finishings are visibly present in room decor. Floor to ceiling glass wall panels allow ample natural light and a clear view of ocean waves – bringing these literal elements of nature indoors. In addition, cove and lantern-style lighting further amplifies the zen-like aesthetic from day to night. All together the design makes for a calming environment, perfect for a relaxing getaway. Between the hotel rooms, suites, and villas, accommodations are available to suit any guest preference.
One of Nobu Hotel’s boast worthy claims includes their distinctive service. As a five star hotel, the standard is set on providing a top-notch experience for guests and visitors. The anticipated concierge and poolside service are just two of the personal touches that cater to your every need. It’s often the little things that make a property stand out; like a surprise complementary drink service in the early evening, or the beach attendant remembering your preferred chair setup. Palm trees line the outdoor pool and beachfront settings, making a perfect atmosphere for a rejuvenating afternoon. Plus, an exclusive Nobu-only pool is set to open in the coming months which will amplify the boutique experience for hotel guests.
Finally, a Nobu hotel would not be complete without their namesake restaurant and carefully curated menu. Nobu Room service is just one of the perks of staying at the property. Enjoying hand rolled sushi or the famous miso black cod from the comfort of your bed or balcony truly can’t be beat. The addition of Malibu Farm on the Nobu Eden Roc property expands the in-house options while also giving the opportunity for a casual dining experience next to the pool and beach.
