The Viceroy Miami (part 5 – parting thoughts)

Our post today wraps up a fab mini holiday at the sumptuous Viceroy Miami. Quite honestly we were a bit uncertain about staying in downtown Miami versus South Beach, but I’m so happy we decided to branch out and try something different. We had planned to visit (and in a few cases revisit) some of those great Miami sights like the Viscaya, and The Fairfield Tropical Gardens and then maybe to pop over to South Beach to grab lunch at the Viceroy’s sister hotel, The Tides – as it turns out we were just so pleased with the Viceroy that we mostly succumbed to the luxury of doing nothing! We did manage to get ourselves over to the 28,000 Sq foot Spa located at Icon Brickell and enjoy a few very soothing beauty treatments, though this cannot really be considered “going out” as the spa is part of the ten glorious resort acres that comprise the Viceroy Miami. It’s still nice to know that should one want a bit of local flavor its all just a few minutes away.

Leaving Miami actually felt a bit like disembarking after a grand ocean liner cruise – so much of our amazing vacation experience was contained within the Viceroy and its beautiful surrounds. Perhaps on our next visit we’ll venture out a bit more. Or maybe not! Either way options abound!

    Dear James,

    I guess the time at the spa was lovely and relaxing. Love your outfit, specially the red/pink stripes, it reminds me of the fashion of the 20s

    This is wonderful James, this place is somptuous. I love contrasts on the second picture and buildings on the background. Your sandals are amazing!

    James:

    I forget how I stumbled upon your “blog.” But checking in with you has become part of my daily ritual, and I’ve been inspired many more times than once….

    I think I even bought a lamp recently because of something that you said or that was in one of your daily photos.

    Anyway, I simply wanted to take a moment and send you a quick thank you for your efforts. You certainly add to my sense of well-being with the world.

    Have a glorious weekend and be well.

    James,

    I concur with Mr Stephen…this WIJW blog is better than TV, Magazines, and is the best of the internet !!!!!!!

    Future James Andrews will refer back to your blog the way you have referred to reading “Vogue” when you were a child.
