Iconic Miami Beach resort updates historic Versailles Tower and cabanas

Jeffrey Beers International enhanced the Versailles Tower, while Clausen-Collaborative Interior Design upgraded the poolside cabanas.

The Fontainebleau Miami Beach has unveiled its recent resort updates, including a new design in the Versailles Tower and renovations to the hotel’s existing poolside cabanas.

Jeffrey Beers International renovated the overall look and feel of the Versailles Tower to match the resort’s Chateau Tower. Meanwhile, Clausen-Collaborative Interior Design worked with Fontainebleau to upgrade the poolside cabanas.

Following a “light and airy” design theme, the Jeffery Beers International team updated the existing Versailles Bay View Junior Suites to match the building’s original architecture. The designers also worked with Fontainebleau to curate two entirely new room categories, the Executive One-Bedroom Suite and the Grand One-Bedroom Suite. Throughout the hotel, design elements now include polished metal accents, a geometrical headboard, custom nightstands with integrated power for easier charging of electronic devices, and custom vintage-inspired nightstand lamps.

In select suites, the Jeffery Beers team also incorporated design elements like a Jonathan Adler chandelier; black and white, hand-sketched artwork from Fontainebleau Miami Beach’s architect, Morris Lapidus; custom upholstered panels with metal accents throughout living and dining spaces; entry wallcovering inspired by the bowtie lobby floor; and new walk-in closets.

The all-new Executive One-Bedroom Suite can host events. The suite has 270-degree views of the Atlantic Ocean and Biscayne Bay. A separate bedroom has a master bath with an oversized jetted tub and glass-enclosed shower. The adjoining parlor has a wet bar, dining table, sofa and a second half bath.

The Grand One-Bedroom Suite has a large dining room table, wet bar, 55-inch HDTVs and an extra half-bath. The secluded master bedroom has an oversized jet whirlpool tub and standalone shower.

The property has more than1,500 rooms, suites and penthouses on 20 acres of oceanfront land, and includes four luxury towers. Complementing the resort’s two original towers, Chateau and Versailles, the all-suite Trésor and Sorrento towers have a combined 750 junior, one- and two-bedroom suites.

Fontainebleau Miami Beach also worked with Clausen-Collaborative Interior Design (CCID) on renovating its 33 poolside cabanas. These were added with wood panels and custom furniture including new sofas and loveseats, as well as staggered-height coffee tables. These also use neutral fabrics, poufs by Italian furniture designer Paola Lenti and custom-designed wood panels.
