Why Stay At Grove Isle Hotel & Spa
Set on a 20-acre island off the northern end of Coconut Grove, Miami's historic arts community, this elegant palm-lined boutique hotel—operated by Grand Heritage, which also has the Providence Biltmore in Rhode Island—offers spectacular views of Biscayne Bay and is a favorite getaway for the romantically minded.
A four-acre complex on the northern tip of Grove Isle, this hotel is a true refuge, the polar opposite of hectic South Beach—though it's only a 15-minute drive away. It's also a thoughtful property, attuned to the soothing waters of Biscayne Bay: some of the 50 spacious rooms, done up in shades of cocoa brown and plantation green, have raised platforms for beds allowing for optimum views. And this is a dog-friendly hotel, winner of the CESAR Five Dog Bone Award: dogs love to scamper around the walking path and the beach area. Naturally, The Spa at Grove Isle is also blessed with relaxing water views, including a yoga deck on the water. The energetic can take a Pilates class, swim laps in the bay-front pool, or play tennis at the Patrick McEnroe Tennis Center on one of 11 Har-Tru soft courts or the U.S. Open hard court. And at night, Gibraltar—with a fire pit, torches, and a soft breeze—is a truly romantic setting.
Dogs, aside from being welcome in the rooms at Grove Isle, can dine alfresco at the Pool Bar restaurant, alongside guest tables. Grove Isle also has a Paws in Paradise package: at check-in, guests and their pets are given a water bowl, dog bed, and pet goody bag. A Bark Bar Room Service Menu is also available.
The Spa at Grove Isle features Balinese spa rituals, utilizing the healing touches of flowers and spices. But there's nothing like sunset from the Watsu pool, one of only five in the eastern United States: the hydromassage whirlpool, overlooking the bay, is backed by a waterfall.

Why We Love Coconut Grove
An island escape that's close to home, Grove Isle gives us the Caribbean vibe without the long-haul flight. To think this exclusive island bliss is just minutes from Miami is enough to kick up some heat.
Outdoor Excursion: Biscayne Bay is best seen by boat; Grove Isle can arrange for rentals of sailboats and kayaks at the nearby Coconut Grove Marina.
Top Restaurant: Romance is always on the menu at Gibraltar, and there's no more romantic spot than the solitary table for two directly on the water's edge: to access, diners walk down a keystone path lined with lush tropical plants, just past the fire pit. Don't miss the Key West snapper wraps and the fire-roasted salmon.
