CIPRIANI OCEAN RESORT, Miami Beach
Cipriani Ocean Resort and Club Residences on Miami Beach offer 209 fully furnished, fully serviced, luxury oceanfront hotel
condominium suites, as well as 66 private club residences.
Cipriani was designed by renowned Florentine architect and interior designer
Michele Bonan, and is set for completion in 2009. The name Cipriani will be appreciated by literature lovers: Giuseppe
Cipriani opened "Harry’s Bar" off the Piazza San Marco, in Venice. Patrons included Ernest Hemingway who made the bar famous
in his "A Moveable Feast". Located at 32nd Street and Collins Avenue between the Atlantic and the Intracoastal Waterway,
Cipriani is on the site of Miami Beach's historic Saxony Hotel, which was designed by Roy France, and which is being fully
restored to its original and charming MiMo beauty thanks to a new wave of preservation focused on this particular architectural
style (credited mainly to architect Morris Lapidus, creator of the Fontainebleau and others).
"Mimo", short for Miami Modern,
is the moniker created to describe the unique fantasy style of Lapidus' Miami Beach architecture
that came after Art Deco, and which gave the area so much
of its glamorous beach-holiday persona.
