Kimpton Hotel Palomar South Beach eyes 2020 opening

Kimpton Hotel Palomar South Beach is scheduled to open in mid- to late January 2020 in the Miami Beach party destination. The property will be the boutique hotel company’s fifth in the state, complementing its existing hotels in Miami Beach, Downtown Miami and Vero Beach.

Altamarea Group, the New York restaurant Hospitality Group, will run the hotel’s food and beverage program, and bring its Osteria Morini brand from Soho to the Kimpton Palomar.

Located at the gateway of the Sunset Harbour neighborhood, Kimpton Hotel Palomar South Beach will feature a design by Miami architect and designer Kobi Karp. The design takes its cues from the waterfront.

The hotel will span five stories with 96 rooms surrounding a central atrium. Meant to resemble the hull of a private luxury yacht lilted on its side, the lobby will have custom-built light installations and will be peppered with art displays, including light panels, abstracted shapes, and large format fabrics meant to resemble the ripples of the Atlantic Ocean.

The guestrooms will have private balconies available for nearly every guest and design that will be inspired by the oceanic environs.

Up top on the sixth floor, guests can take in the views of the bay from the private rooftop pool and two-tier roof deck with stylish décor and lounge area seating, all while enjoying bites from the Osteria Morini team.

Osteria Morini, from chef Michael White, will debut shortly following the opening of the hotel. Right off the lobby of the hotel, the restaurant will offer Northern Italian fare. The space will have both indoor and outdoor seating.

Fernando Rivera is the property’s GM.
