Dream South Beach, a '70s-inspired hotel is set to open this February, transforming two iconic properties, The Tudor Hotel and Palmer House into one ethereal hotspot.
Michael Czysz’s design house Architropolis spearheaded the creative concept with Kelly Ogden helming the interiors, coupling a touch of disco with a French-Moroccan flare.
Dream's promenade is lined with wall fountains and the pathway glows with an acrylic in-laid floor under-lit with come-hither hues, while an 8-foot tall sculpture of Ganesha, crafted by Miguel Rodríguez sits in a bamboo grove, guarding the entrance.
The former Palmer House lobby serves as Dream South Beach’s reception area, featuring original keystone wainscoting as well as a keystone front desk dating back to 1939, when the original façade was erected.
All public areas in the renovated hotel feature custom-crafted lighting and furniture, echoing the surreal scene of the 108 guestrooms, including the Sun House Duplex Penthouse, two Duplex Sun Suites, and nine Junior Suites.
Guests will discover a sleek, jewel-box feel in the bedrooms, boasting carved neo-French-Moroccan doors back-lit by cool blue light. In fact, the rooms are cast almost entirely in shades of teal, cobalt and purple while flickering prisms flank the bed and a white and whimsical chandelier dangles above.
As a nod to the past, Dream's new restaurant, The Tudor, occupies the ground floor of what was The Tudor hotel serving up casual, contemporary American fare. The venue features baseball-stitched banquette seating and back-lit teak screen partitions, while the outdoor dining areas are furnished with custom teak bench seating and dining tables with bronze glass tops amid a background of tropical plants.
We've also heard that the new rooftop lounge, also steeped in late '70s decor—with glimmering glass tiles in white and gold and of course, loads of lucite—will offer an infinity pool and sun-soaked views of the Atlantic ocean.
