My experience began as I walked through the doors and saw a live wall of moss which turned into artwork. I was truly amazed at all of the live plants which hung gracefully from the ceiling that was colored with breathtaking orchids. Everywhere you look there was life surrounding guests of the hotel. Succulent plants in glass bowls adorned the light wood tables in the lobby. I was greeted by a peaceful gentleman named Dilip Mukundan who is the director of Sales & Marketing at this truly amazing hotel. As we started our tour, Dilip started to explain the 1 Hotel’s concept of being eco-friendly to a level I could never have imagined. As we made our way through the lobby, there was a fruit stand offering fresh fruit sourced from local farmers for guests to enjoy. Even the halls were lined by repurposed pine wood that was salvaged from trees that were unfortunately infested by a species of beetles. The color was a gorgeous hue that resulted from a natural chemical reaction from the beetles. Light colored natural fabrics, woods, and stone gave the room an inviting and calm essence. Everything is recycled in the hotel, including the cardboard clothing hangers in the rooms. Want to write a note, you will not find a pad or pen, but instead a small chalkboard with chalk on your bedside table. Even the tap water in the room is drinkable due to a triple-filtration faucet. The room was luxurious and designed for comfort with natural elements including the hemp-blend mattress. After seeing the suite, we visited the Bamford Haybarn Spa where natural elements and wafting soothing aromas created a calming and inviting feel. Adjacent to the spa was a state of the art gym that follows the Spartan concept. Just outside the gym is the amazing plant based restaurant called plnthouse helmed by chef Matthew Kenney. From juicing to smoothies, their dishes are deeply rooted in nature with a nod to the importance of health and fitness. My favorite dish that Dilip recommended for breakfast was the Garbanzo scrambled. The flavors were so palatable as the fresh herbs delighted the taste buds with a slightly spicy kick. The Zen like pool area offers breathtaking views of the ocean and makes you feel like one with nature. According to the CEO, “I wanted to capture the beauty of nature in a hotel, and in doing so commit to safeguarding it as best I can, a responsibility that I believe we all share. It’s 1 world.” They have planted the seeds to aspire to live an eco-friendlier life and give back to the environment as the same time.
I cannot thank Dilip and his team enough for this relaxing and health inspiring return to nature that I experienced at the 1 Hotel. All of the restaurants and amenities were at the highest level and the hanging orchids made me smile every time I walked past them. It’s amazing how the hotel has kept true to this concept and created this spectacular eco-friendly getaway in the heart of South Beach. This is one not to miss!
