The Regent Bal Harbour's Crown Jewel: A Presidential Suite That Sets a New Standard for Miami Style

The Regent Bal Harbour's Crown Jewel: A Presidential Suite That Sets a New Standard for Miami Style

BAL HARBOUR (MIAMI), Fla., July 12 /PRNewswire/ -- When The Regent Bal Harbour oceanfront resort debuts Winter Season 2007, it will be crowned by a newsmaker: a Presidential Suite worthy of the name. With 3,500 square feet of maximum privacy, unique touches -- including a private movie theater -- singular service and a rich, sophisticated design, it will re-define Miami style for the 21st century.

Presidential Suite guests, arriving via private jet, helicopter at a nearby landing pad or in a Regent signature limousine, will be whisked via private elevator to the literal height of luxury on the 18th-floor. Stunning views of downtown Miami and the Atlantic Ocean from not one, but four private terraces totaling 702 square feet are but a prelude to the Suite's contemporary, classic design. Refined, luxurious handcrafted touches, textured bamboo and striae walls and artful accents harmonize with subtle touches of Asian elegance in a bold color palette of rich aubergine and ruby, offset by soothing neutral citron and vanilla tones. Jim Thompson Thai silks offer colorful accents throughout the spaces. The decor is punctuated by key pieces from the hotel's specially commissioned art collection, created by some of the country's finest established and emerging artists. This will be the new standard for Miami chic, cubed.

Luxe, sensual, textural and visual touches await at every turn. Hand- finished herringbone Brazilian walnut floors and exotic oiled Macassar ebony- paneled walls create a rich aesthetic contrast to the bright Miami sky. Master bedroom views of city lights and bay from bed or private balcony Roman tub dazzle. The 430 square foot master bath, with custom-built sauna, freestanding oval soaking tub and 80 square foot shower room offset by split- faced Woodbridge quartzite walls and floors of rare Incas Gold marble provides a true private spa experience. Regent pioneered the concept of the luxury bathroom at its flagship Hong Kong property two decades ago; the Bal Harbour hotel's master bath's upscale amenities -- among others, an in- mirror plasma TV and ocean coastline views from floor-to-ceiling windows -- bring this signature luxe into the 21st century.

To ensure entertaining will be done with ease and flair, the Suite's unique full-service kitchen is equipped with a Wolf oven, Subzero refrigerator, Miele in-wall espresso coffee maker with a selection of coffee and teas, and a 54-bottle capacity wine cooler. Guests will be pampered by a butler, private chef and, in an only-in-Miami touch reflecting the Regent's fashionable address in Bal Harbour -- the city's most exclusive upscale shopping destination -- an on-call stylist to meet any request, from artful dinner table and themed party settings to selecting a wardrobe for a special evening in or out.

The dining room's museum-quality custom starburst wood table is set with Wedgwood bone china personally selected for The Regent Bal Harbour by Lord Wedgwood, lit by the flattering glow of a silk apres Fortuny chandelier. And what better way to end the evening than a movie in the Suite's six person private theater, with a 62" plasma screen, oversized leather lounges for comfort, and upholstered walls and ceiling creating ideal acoustics for the finest sound system. Guests may also gather around the grand piano in the living room for an elegant apres dinner concert, with the lights of Miami providing a suitably chic backdrop.

With unprecedented exclusivity, privacy, rich design, quality service and amenities carefully chosen to please the most discerning guest, The Regent Bal Harbour's Presidential Suite is certain to become an instant modern classic in every respect. Upscale Miami style will never be the same.

Miami comes of age with the Winter Season 2007 opening of The Regent Bal Harbour. With the first Guerlain Spa in North America, a spectacular signature restaurant, specially commissioned private art works, and semi-private and private elevators to guest rooms, the hotel sets a new Florida standard for oceanfront luxury and sophisticated chic.
