Indulge in private beach service on the sands, right on the doorstep, while you should also immerse yourself in Miami's unique cultural vibe - it is a vibrant city and a hub of artistic activity. Those who are interested in urban art should head to the Wynwood Walls, an area of ever-changing, but always eye-catching, colourful street murals and graffiti by artists from around the world.
If your tastes are a little more traditional, make a beeline for the Vizcaya Museum, a lavishly grand villa built in the early 20th
century by the industrialist James Deering. Older still – in a sense – is the Ancient Spanish Monastery, built in Segovia in 1141 and bought by media tycoon William Randolph Hearst in 1925. The church was dissembled, shipped to America, and reconstructed, brick by brick.
The Betsy taps into Miami's rich arts scene with its PACE (Philanthropy, Arts, Culture, Education) programme, which showcases art, music and literature throughout the hotel, including distinctive artworks such as the Orb bridge and the Poetry Rail - poems etched into metal by water jets - as well as limited edition photography prints and specially selected books in each room, carefully curated playlists and a jam-packed calendar of events.
