What to pack when staying at the Faena Hotel in Miami
This isn’t just a hotel, it’s an entire cultural complex, intended for a sophisticated, well-heeled international crowd. You start feeling the majesty of this place when you enter the hotel through a large room, that looks more like a cathedral rather than a traditional lobby, lined with gold-leafed columns and vivid floor-to-ceiling murals from Argentinian painter Juan Gatti. The Faena Hotel is full of theatrical art and fantastic Art Deco design touches like bright red sofas, splashes of leopard print here and there, and seashell-encrusted jewelry boxes and lamps fashioned out of coral. In this richly decorated hotel with dedicated butler service for all guest rooms, you want to make sure you put in proper effort into your vacation attire.
Faena is a place for all your statement vacation pieces like Jacquemus-wide hats, voluminous sleeves, leopard print, gold accessories and bold color combinations. Everything you thought would be too much would work perfectly here.
The hotel exterior and rooms are incredibly Instagramable and dominated by two colors: the signature Faena red and a teal blue. We believe that some red would look great on you under the red and white umbrellas on the beach. We picked several red swimsuits and cover-ups to help you pack.
If when sitting at the garden bar “Tree of Life”, with the seashell and coral embellished columns, you don't feel like a mermaid, then you certainly will with these pair of earrings, inspired by the ocean that we've selected for you. Faena screams luxury, fashion, art and these accessories are the perfect way to make the right statement.

In the hotel garden stands Hirst’s nearly 10 foot tall 24-karat woolly mammoth skeleton. The $18 million sculpture covered in four layers of hurricane-proof glass became one of the most popular pictures on Instagram taken at the hotel. Did we say you should bring some gold accessories?
This is one of the Gatti painted walls for the Tierra Santa Healing Spa, which is the largest hammam spa in Miami. With 11 treatment rooms, it takes up an entire floor of the Faena hotel.
