A Hedonist’s guide to…

Miami

1 Hotel South Beach
1 Hotel South Beach is a gleaming, high-end boutique hotel on Miami Beach, with its own rooftop pool and 600 feet of exclusive, pristine white sandy beach.
Barton G
Barton G is one of the quintessentially OTT South Beach restaurants, lavish decor, beautiful people, over-inflated egos and great popcorn shrimp...
The Cypress Room
A timely reminder that fine dining still has its place and starched table cloths and buttoned-up waiters aren't just the reserve of period dramas.
Doral Golf Resort
Argyle-clad golf fans can't get enough of The Doral, which boasts no less than five championship golf courses across 34,000 yards.
Miami Flightseeing
Treat a loved one to a sunset flight in your own private aircraft at Miami Flightseeing - guaranteed to get the sparks flying all over again.
Delano Hotel
A new version of South Beach's original icon.
A1 Limousine
While limos may be considered tacky everywhere else in the world, they're still considered fair game in Miami. Ride like nobody's watching.
Alessandra Gold Concept Store
A concept store so cutting edge it should come with a safety warning.
The Forge
Scarface would have eaten here, Scarface wannabes eat here now. The wine cellar is enormous and the food - a mixture of meats and seafood - is verging on the outstanding. Book well in advance for your Wednesday night thriller.
The Bar at Level 25
As is suggested by its name, The Bar at Level 25 is 25 floors up in the Espirito Santos building; inside are potent cocktails, a celebratory crowd and some of the best vistas in Miami.
Sky Dive Miami
Take a leap of faith with Sky Dive Miami, where you'll plummet towards the city face-first either solo or tandem. Either way, it's an adrenaline-pumping experience indeed.
Florida Yacht
You're nobody in Miami until you're whizzing along the ocean in a suitably powerful boat. After all, in this town size is everything.
The Shore Club
Everybody wants a piece of the Shore Club. It is one of the pillars of Miami decadence...
PHS Helicopters Over Miami
Get a bird's eye of Miami via helicopter at PHS; there are a number of choppers to choose from and a range of routes to fly. Hop over to the local winery with the ultimate in transportation. 
James Royal Palm
Stunningly restored with a new feel as laid back as the amenities and service are sharp. 
Jet Ski Tours
Spy a celeb or two with Jet Ski Tours, which allows those who rent out its Yamahas to get as close to Star Island as is legally allowed.
Tarpoon Lagoon
With so many manmade wrecks along Miami's coastline, there's plenty of life to see beneath the water; take a dive with Tarpoon Lagoon.
Khong River House
Sublimely authentic Thai food with a gin selection to match. 
The Setai
Number one hotel in Miami if you are a high-roller...
C. Madeleine’s
You may need to call your bank and warn them before you step foot in this wonderland of fashion. 
The Victor Hotel
Jaques Garcia's jellyfish-themed boutique hotel draws in the celebs and their followers...
Arsht Center
Not a dime of the $470-million that went into the Arsht Center was wasted: with an opera house, concert hall, theatre, plaza and restaurant inside, it has everything you need for a cultured evening out.
Miami Beach Parasail
Glide above the Miami coastline courtesy of Miami Beach Parasail, where you may see the ominous shadows of sharks and manta rays lurking in the waters beneath. The ride will take your breath away!
Fisher Island Club
Take your time to zone out on your own little island...
Juvia
With the panoramic, penthouse view, the lithe, Latino bods languidly lounging and the exquisite creations on your plate you'll need a third eye to soak it all up.... 
St. Regis Bal Harbour
Opulence Miami-style - sell the family silver, you'll never want to leave. 
Fontainebleau
Most will recognise the Fontainebleau from Goldfinger, but non-film fanatics will still appreciate the hotel for its extremely well-appointed rooms and more awe-inspiring amenities than you can shake a gold finger at...
