By P. Joseph

A new luxury hotel opened earlier this month in the vibrant heart of Miami South Beach, Florida.

Dream South Beach, situated on the area’s prestigious Collins Avenue, offers 108 modern guestrooms and an array of premium amenities including a restaurant by celebrated chef Geoffrey Zakarian, an intimate destination rooftop pool lounge with views of the Atlantic Ocean, and an accessory spa.

The hotel is the latest offering from Vikram Chatwal Hotels, a premier hospitality company with properties in New York, Thailand and India.

Spearheaded by design house Architropolis, Dream South Beach features a number of unique art objects showcased throughout the hotel. On the exterior, the promenade is lined with wall fountains and the pathway is illuminated by a custom in-laid acrylic floor pattern under-lit with atmospheric mood lighting.

All rooms come fully equipped with oversized LCD TVs, Bluetooth-enabled smart phones, high-speed broadband Internet access and WiFi, iPod docking systems, Egyptian bed linen, waffle knit spa robes, Etro bath amenities, in-room safes and a private bar. Guests can receive pre-loaded iPods and DVD players upon request.

Speaking about the new opening, Hotelier Vikram Chatwal said: “With its accessible location and eclectic design, Dream South Beach marks a significant revitalization of the ‘Dream’ brand in a destination renowned for its cultivated yet convivial denizens and travelers; an ideal fit for our brand, which seeks to capture the authentic spirit of each hotel’s locale."

The hotel is located just 10 miles from Miami International Airport.
