Sugar Travels: Miami Edition

By Colette

If you and your Sugar Daddy are looking to heat things up on your next trip, I recommend checking out Miami.  It’s a short flight if you’re coming from the midwest & east coast. The airports aren’t far at all from the city.  While the whole city has a lot to offer, I’m going to zoom in on Bal Harbour and South Beach. They offer the sweetest combination of fun and luxury.  Let’s dive in!


If all you want from Miami is to shop till you drop, then I definitely recommend staying at the St Regis Bal Harbour. It’s right across the street from the shops at Bal Harbour.  I personally haven’t stayed there yet, but I have no doubt that you can expect top-notch luxury and service there.

Further south, the W is a solid and very fun spot to stay.  At the base of the hotel, you’ll find Mr. Chow, a pool, a nightclub, and beach access. The hotel’s fun, the cool aesthetic is perfectly at-home with the South Beach Art Deco vibe.

You could also stay at the Setai, which is just a block south of the W.  It’s a really luxe hotel with an Asian take on the Art Deco movement.  If nothing else, I recommend grabbing an afternoon coffee in the serene, open courtyard in the middle of the hotel—it also makes for great people watching!

A couple blocks south from there, you’ll find the SLS—and a block below that, the Delano.  Both are fun, trendy, and luxe—with the SLS definitely more on the trendy and fun side, and the Delano on the more understated luxe side.  If you love Vegas summer pool parties, then definitely check out the scene at SLS!


If you’re in the mood for sushi, look into getting a table at Nobu Miami—the scene and the food can’t be beaten!  If you can’t get into Nobu, try Makoto in the Bal Harbour shopping center.  The restaurant is named after chef Makoto Okuwa, who used to be the sushi chef at Morimoto NY.  And if you’re in the mood for luxe Chinese, try getting a table at Mr. Chow in the W. 

Pao by Paul Qui is also incredible—it’s located in the Faena hotel, which has one of the most lavish lobbies I’ve ever seen.  Juvia is a super fun rooftop restaurant in the Lincoln Road Mall with a vibrant scene, eclectic food, and fun cocktails.  And if you’re in the mood for steak, check out The Forge—the steak is amazing and the decor is fab!

See & Do

My ideal day in Miami starts with getting some sort of spa treatment—probably a massage, maybe a facial—at any one of the hotel spas above.  Then I put on some sunscreen and spend most of the day sunbathing on the beach.  As the sun starts to go down, I get ready to go out—if I want something luxe, I’ll check out the shops at Bal Harbour, and if I want something more casual, I’ll check out the shops at Lincoln Road Mall.  If your SD is really into high-end watches, then definitely mention Bal Harbour!  After shopping, I’d go to dinner, and then maybe out to a club depending on the scene.  

There are, of course, many more things you could do in Miami.  If you’re sports fans, go see the Heat.  If you like dance, go see the ballet.  Doing a day trip to see the Keys is also fun.  Enjoy! 

Bon voyage and happy sugaring!
