GAL APPROVED! Three Great Hotels For A Memorial Day GetawayBy Delaina Dixon | May 22, 2017 | Travel
Hey DivaGals! We’ve moved out Gal Approved to Monday for one good reason – Memorial Day plans! Here’ are some amazing hotels you can escape to this May for a Memorial Day adventure you won’t forget!
1 Hotel South Beach. When the DivaGals visited this must-see Miami destination (pictured up top) that takes up an entire city block, we noticed right away it sits right on the beachfront. If that’s not enough reason to stay, the 1 Hotel’s dedication to sustainability is next. This is an environmentally conscious oasis, offering eco-conscience design and technology, from its recycled and repurposed wood furnishings and the living green sculpture in its lobby to its curated guest rooms with touches like Colorado beetle kill pine headboards, hangers made from recycled paper and complimentary reusable recycled water glasses to use with its Triple Clear Water in-room water tap. Along with access to a 26,000-square-foot adult-only rooftop with an 110-foot-long ocean view swimming pool along with a rooftop restaurant and lounge, three additional swimming pools are on the property with plenty of cabanas accommodating various party sizes. If fitness is your thing, you’ll never run out of options inside Spartan Gym, the first of its kind for really intense training. Maybe you’re more of a SoulCycle kind of gal, which is also located on the premises. Then there’s Mind and Movement, an array of outdoor fitness and wellness classes, complimentary to all guests. 1 Hotel South Beach also boasts a superior spa experience at its 4,500-square-foot Bamford Haybarn Spa. If that isn’t enough, you can dine on gorgeous greens and other living food at plnthouse, (we had the Thai Rice Paper Wraps with avocado, red pepper, mango, red cabbage and sprouts, delish!), or at any one of 1 Hotel South Beach’s top eateries, including Beachcraft, Tom on Collins, The Sand Box, watr and Nativ Made. Thinking there’s no way you can book a stay for this holiday weekend? Surprise! 1 Hotel South Beach has available guest rooms and they are currently up to 50 percent off!
