Resort & Spa in Miami Beach, Florida to its Management Portfolio


The Woodlands (Houston), Texas, November 9, 2011Benchmark Hospitality International, a leading US-based independent hospitality management company, announces the addition of ONE Bal Harbour Resort & Spa to its management portfolio.  Located oceanside in Miami Beach, the luxurious resort joins 13 other properties in Benchmark’s Personal Luxury Resorts & HotelsSM.  Alex Cabañas, president business development & finance, made the announcement.

“It is truly a pleasure to welcome ONE Bal Harbour Resort & Spa to Benchmark Hospitality International,” said Mr. Cabañas.  “This extraordinary property with its idyllic location in Miami Beach is a signature resort, and a wonderful addition to our collection of Personal Luxury Resorts & Hotels.”

Set along Miami’s storied white sand beaches near the Intracoastal Waterway, ONE Bal Harbour Resort & Spa is an oasis of luxury and sophistication between the ocean and the cosmopolitan pleasures of South Florida.  Just 15 minutes from world-renowned South Beach, the luxurious five star-quality resort offers 124 guestrooms and suites enhanced by large terraces with breathtaking ocean views. Each guestroom features extraordinary attention to detail, with contemporary décor accented by elegant mahogany, natural granite, rich leather, and custom artwork.

The distinctive restaurant, Mister Collins, located within ONE Bal Harbour, serves exceptional American cuisine in an upscale yet casual atmosphere.  Wines from around the world are featured nightly.  Al fresco dining is available in season.

ONE Bal Harbour’s world-class Spa provides guests with 10 private treatment suites, each with ocean views, a serene waterfront terrace, and a reflection room for pre- and post-treatment relaxation.  The resort’s Spa offers a wide range of beauty and well-being treatments, lifestyle and nutritional counseling, and features Babor spa products.

ONE Bal Harbour’s health amenities include a state-of-the-art fitness center, an outdoor swimming pool / whirlpool and private cabanas.  A step away is the endless stretch of pristine white sand beach complemented with resort beach chairs and umbrellas, beach attendants standing ready to serve, and cocktail service featuring specially crafted libations.

Ideal for families traveling to Miami Beach, children find a home at the resort with the ONE Kid’s Club, specifically designed for them with special services and amenities.  As a pet friendly property, the resort welcomes four-legged guests with the Lulu Flynn Dog Program.

ONE Bal Harbour Resort & Spa is also an ideal choice for extraordinary special occasions, whether for business or pleasure.  The resort provides more than 10,000 square feet of indoor / outdoor event and meeting space, and is equipped to host gatherings ranging from weddings and intimate cocktail receptions to board meetings and gala dinners.

A unique Miami Beach destination, ONE Bal Harbour Resort & Spa is complemented by the adjacent Bal Harbour Village, one of North America’s most exclusive shopping, dining and night life experiences.  Bal Harbour Village stores include Saks Fifth Avenue, Diane von Furstenberg, Versace, Jimmy Choo and Cartier among others top brands. Nearby is Aventura Mall, the fifth largest upscale shopping center in the United States.  ONE Bal Harbour Resort & Spa also offers guests in-room and personal shopping services.

Just minutes from the resort is Land Shark Stadium, home of the Miami Dolphins, Florida Marlins and the University of Miami Hurricanes, and Miami’s premier sports and entertainment venue, hosting the Orange Bowl, Pro Bowl and Super Bowl.  Miami’s legendary Ocean Drive is a short distance away and features 15 vibrant blocks of nightclubs, hotspots and restaurants.  In keeping with ONE Bal Harbour’s exclusivity, nearby the resort is a heliport, as well as private jet and yacht charter service.
