MIAMI—Menin Hospitality plans to open its newest multimillion-dollar luxury hotel here, Gale Suites at Kaskades, on Dec. 1. The all-suite wing of Gale South Beach is set to open to coincide with the hotel’s two-year anniversary.
The restoration, led by local design group Urban Robot Associates, will maintain the 25-room boutique hotel’s historic relevance and charm, as originally designed by famed architect Melvin Grossman in 1953, according to the company. Two additional levels have been incorporated to offer a 1,000-sq.-ft. meeting space, catering kitchen and a 3,400-sq.-ft. rooftop terrace and pool.
The design of Gale Suites at Kaskades preserves the distinct materials, color palette and sentiment of Gale South Beach, but reinterprets the scheme, amenities and standard of luxury, said the company. Deep blue leather-paneled walls and contemporary floor rugs offer an accent of color against the gray hardwood flooring and gray-stained expert millwork all in bespoke wood manufactured in Amsterdam by Oscar Ono. In-room accessories are sourced from Italian icon Alessi and loose furniture pieces are imported from renowned Italian design houses Flexform and B&B Italia.
The marble-clad wet room offers rain showers that double as an aromatherapy steam room, spa tubs and custom outdoor Japanese soaking tubs utilizing chromatherapy treatment and water-jet massage for first-floor guests. The vanity mirror conceals an LED TV that disappears when not in use and a hands-free Toto washlet toilet automatically opens its lid when approached and also serves as an electronic bidet with seat and water temperature control.
