Salute the sun with Yoga on the Skyline Deck, keep up with your workout routine with a Peloton spin class in the fitness center, or watch the clouds go by lounging at the rooftop pool. Round out your day with an unexpected adventure by picking up one of our curated book titles in the Library, or feel jazzy rhythms every night in our tropical lobby. Did we mention two renowned restaurants on property? You might be asking yourself, why leave at all?
Take your pick - Courtyard or Rooftop? Quintessential South Beach glamour, right before it goes on the postcard: an infinity rooftop pool just cool enough to relieve the heat and warm enough to linger for a cocktail or conversation, 360-degree views of Miami and the Atlantic, a full bar with food service, and an architectural marvel – it’s suspended in mid-air. A tranquil counterpart, the Courtyard Pool —equal parts full shade and direct sunlight —feels like a tropical retreat from a bygone era, ideal for families with little ones.
The sun may not set over the ocean, but it does rise there – the Ocean Front Deck is an unforgettable spot to take in the morning’s sights and sounds. After a pop down to LT Steak & Seafood for breakfast, come back to bask in ocean-facing chaises, while getting lost in your favorite book. Steps from the Rooftop Pool, the Skyline Deck crowns the Art Deco Wing, offering views of the Atlantic Ocean and the downtown skyline, and accented by a canopy of bistro lights, it’s a particularly alluring place to hide out at sunset.
Located on the first floor of the Art Deco Wing, our 24-hour fitness center comes with modern cardio equipment, a full weight-training area, a yoga/stretching zone, and two Peloton bikes connected to online classes. Private-training sessions available, here or on the beach — just ask the concierge.
Wellness Garden & Spa
Located atop the Colonial Wing and framed by jasmine and birds of paradise, here is a zen detour to your bustling South Beach stay. The treatments and therapies — massages, body treatments, facials, and manis & pedis — take place in private bamboo-and-canvas cabanas, using only paraben-free products derived from natural ingredients. If you want to cool down, consider the Wood Stone Ritual, which makes use of chilled stones; the Coconut Hot Towel Facial will bring you right back.
*The rooftop Spa is currently closed for maintenance work, we are offering all services in our Spa Suite in the interim.
With so much going on at the hotel, sometimes it takes a moment to remember that The Betsy looks out onto one of the most glorious strands of sand beach in the world. Our beach service awaits — umbrellas, lounge chairs, and towels; attendants ready to see to your requests; and, of course, the truest marvel of them all — that water.
Sun salutations take on a new meaning here. Our Skyline Deck is your open-air studio for sunrise yoga, with Vinyasa flow classes taught by the experienced teachers at 3rd Street Beach Yoga. We provide the mats, blocks, and towels — just bring yourself. All levels welcome. Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday at 7:30AM, exclusively for hotel guests. Group sessions available — contact the concierge for more information.
Like the book collections in every room, the Library honors our literary origins and support of the arts – this enchanted hideaway is yours 24 hours a day. Featuring wall-to-wall bookshelves stocked with titles on everything from Rioja to poetry, the Library has the feeling of a private club in Manhattan transposed to Ocean Drive. A place to while away a morning with a coffee, take a meeting, or indulge in private conversation.
Margot and Paul have been doing this for a while. From pre-arrival reservations to curated lists for everything from restaurants to activities that go beyond the expected, you’ll find out why our guests single them out so often in their farewell comments.

An Award Winning Experience
Just Keeps Getting Better
We’ve been coming to the Betsy for ten years or so and have given it excellent reviews each time. And with its recent expansion - more rooms, a fine library, a real fitness center, a rooftop pool...
The Betsy is South Beach’s top destination!
Best steak in Miami, gorgeous rooms, and the friendliest staff. Beautiful hotel that embraces fine art and classic Miami architecture. Not to mention, Betsy and Katie are the cutest Canine Executive Officers in the golden retriever universe!
An Oasis of Arts
Surrounded by the din of South Beach, the Betsy is an oasis of relaxation, beauty and the arts. The food and drinks are delicious. The live music is always top-notch. The creative architecture is fun to explore. But I love the Betsy because they support arts and culture.
