What springs to mind when you think of Miami? Let me guess? Sun, sand, rollerblading down South Beach? You’re not wrong, but having just had the privilege of experiencing the destination first hand (courtesy of Melia Hotels and Destinations Unlimited, Thanks Roger and Nikki!), I’ve discovered Miami has so more to offer as an incentive destination than meets the eye!

Here’s just some of the many reasons why:

  • Best place to stay? South beach is considered the forefront of Miami with a vast array of hotels, bars, restaurants within a stone’s throw from the white sandy beaches. However, the downtown areas of Brickell and Biscayne, simply 5 mins away, are fast becoming the new hotspots! The brand new ME and W Hotel, have some of the best rooftop bars, vibrant cocktail lounges, and trendiest décor in the area.

 

  • Need a party venue? Head to the Wynwood District, the new hub of food and culture in Miami, to offer your guests something very unusual! How about a street party with handcrafted cocktails, live music, and your very own yard of artesian food trucks? Or try Wynwood Walls Park for the most eclectic back drops possible, and available for exclusive hire. For smaller groups and budgets, or if you’d simply prefer the authentic Miami experience, time your trip around the Second Saturday Art Walks and hangout at the best street festival in the South.

 

  • Fancy sightseeing with a difference? Head to the Little Havana to explore the rhythmic sounds, rich flavours and thriving centre of Miami’s Cuban community. Experience the authentic hearty cuisine, hand roll your own cigars, and try the freshest coffee, the ‘Café Cubano’ you will ever taste. You can even have ‘Cuban Pete’ to show you around and provide real insight into the pastimes and traditions of this colourful heritage.

 

  • Dinner with the Wow factor? Head to the River Yacht Club a shiny new waterfront restaurant nestled in the heart of the Miami River District. Or The Versace Mansion. Say no more

 

So put aside your current perceptions of Miami and get in touch to find out how we can create your next and BEST incentive! After all, the lyrical genius Will Smith himself said ‘ain't no city in the world like this’!
