The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach – Where Luxury Meets “Miami Modern”
Upon arrival at The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach, visitors are greeted by a swanky atmosphere with equally stylish surroundings. There’s a moody, almost art deco feel to many of the spaces – including the lobby bar, which is a fantastic place to grab a drink or two in a quiet corner – while the suites boast a more modern and streamlined design.
The interior décor features many eye-catching patterns, designs, and thoughtfully curated accents. While the hotel is quite modern in its aesthetics and appeal, innovative design has been part of its identity and history dating back 70 years.
“The hotel was designed by Morris Lapidus in 1953,” shares Camila Chamorro, Market Director of Catering Sales. “Mr. Lapidus was primarily known for Neo-baroque architecture of Miami hotels in the 1950s and 1960s which has become a staple in ‘Miami Modern’ design. The Lapidus Wall inside the lobby is in an unusual L-shape, held together by a curving wall of circular lights. Lapidus referred to the ‘moth complex’ and how people are attracted to light.”

In partnership with Krigler, The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach offers a wedding package that allows the couple to create their own signature scent. In celebration of their partnership with the famous Perfume House of Krigler, there are now three add-on options that couples can choose from to customize their wedding package.
The first option is a private shopping experience at Krigler within The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach, where couples can select their signature scent for the big day. Fragrances begin at $555 USD, and shoppers can reserve their private shopping experience with no lead time and walk out with their signature scent. This service is also available at The Ritz-Carlton, Bal Harbour.
The second option allows couples to lease a one-of-a-kind, archived Krigler scent unavailable for purchase by the general public and inspired by the bountiful florals of the wedding. Couples can capture the olfactory memories of their wedding day by connecting fragrant notes from floral bouquets, decor, and the environment from their celebration to the historic scent that they alone are granted access to for a limited amount of time.

The third and final option is a bespoke, custom-created fragrance which can be done at the guest’s suite or a private experience in the Krigler store. Custom-created fragrances start at $60,000 USD with an 18-month lead time. This option includes the guest’s personal selection for the trunk design and crystal bottle.
